Kitchenaid dishwasher not filling with water

Washer has power and will run if I put water into the bottom of the dishwasher. But no water is being pumped into the dishwasher. We have a lot of mineral/ calcium deposit buildup in our machine. My husband & I took off the filter and cleaned out all of the visible calcium deposits around the pump. I have also run a cycle by adding water to the bottom of the dishwasher and used one bottle of "Dishwasher Magic".

SOURCE: Dishwasher not pumping the water out?

hi
the larger motor housing underneath the unit is what moves the water around to wash, the smaller pump is the drain pump, if you don't hear that running it is likely in need of replacement. check your paper work for warranty, if it's out of warranty try to find a deal online and it's relatively easy to replace

SOURCE: need to clean lime and calcium deposit from bottom

The cheapest way is using homemade vinegar and lemon solution. If the deposit is big use a commercial cleaner. See the links below:

SOURCE: My GE Nautilus dishwasher keeps PUMPING water "out" of the machine during the entire wash cycle. I have removed all covers in the bottom of the unit to see if anything is stock. Used vinegar and CLR

If this convert-able dishwasher is permanently installed, you will have to take off the lower access panel to get to the pump area. If it is still in a portable configuration, it may be easier to lay the dishwasher on it's back or side to do this. Now, examine the pump / motor assembly. There is not a separate water pump on this model. There is a diverter pump out solenoid which get's pulled down to direct the water out the drain hose for pump out, which is suppose to spring back out of the way to allow water to go up to the spray arms for washing. I suspect that the solenoid got to hot and the plunger will no longer slide in the solenoid. If this is the case, you can replace it with a WD21X802. If the arm and plunger move freely, check the spring, or for obstructions in the pump housing, or possibly the diverter arm in the pump housing has come loose from the shaft. The solenoid is the most likely.

SOURCE: Mineral deposits on heating element of dishwasher

There is a chemical you can buy that is a dishwasher cleaner that should do it. Wal-Mart or an appliance store should have it. If it is bad, you may have to do it several times. Ultimately you may need a new element if it is real bad.

Have a kitchenaid double drawer dishwasher. While running the bottom drawer the top drawer fills up with water. Had the filler valve on the garbage disposal changed. Issue still continues. Any suggestions


Mine does the same thing! (Same model) I've finally discovered that if I start the bottom drawer first and the top drawer just after that doesn't happen as much. Also, if I run the garbage disposal (and water obviously) while it's starting (I will try to do my hand washing while the dishwasher is getting going) that seems to keep this from happening as well. I've given up running just one drawer, which totally defeats the purpose of buying the 2 drawer dishwasher. But it does keep me from having to bail the bottom drawer :-( I'd like a better solution to this too!

My dishwasher starts fills water and never starts wash cycle?


If you hear a hum when it should be washing, the motor has seized. Replace motor. If it fills with water and stops quite, run it through a test using the tech sheet under the bottom panel to access. These dishwasher have had issues with the motor.

No water flow through dishwasher


No you need to clean out the spray nozzles with an old toothbrush etc both top and bottom and also clean out the debris filter below or at the heating element at the bottom of the washer. Then run a bottle of dryright etc. to help clean up the buildup in the machine. Then do this once or twice a year from now on and that washer should work great. Hope this helps.

Kitchenaide KUDM24SE1 dishwasher will not fill with water


It may be the water inlet valve or the electronic control board. To check, remove the bottom toe panel. The valve will be on the left side. There will be live power, so use extreme CAUTION. Start the DW, 1. if you can hear the valve humming or the valve coil is getting warm, replace the valve. 2. Using a device with wires to check the power at plugs, connect to valve power connection, if power is present, replace valve else replace electronic control board.

HElp Dishes not coming clean


Run the unit with no soap, after about 5 min. of run time open door and check to see if water is clear or soapy,If soapy then you are having an oversudsng issue.When your washer gets to rinse cycle, your unit (if oversuding),will be rinsing with soapy water and the the drying cycle bakes the soap on dishes.You might be having a white film on your clear glasses.Cut down on soap especially if you have soft water.powder soap is best.Your dishwasher will fill , wash , the drain.Its what you put into it that will cause dishes not become clean.
