Yes, the only other thing I would do and you may have done this is to put the hose directly over in the washer tub and turn the water on to check the flow. If that's good then replace the water valve.

SOURCE: Samsung washing machine J1045 water over filling

This sounds more like the inlet valve is being supplied with constant power when its not supposed to be.This is normally due to the old valve spikeing the PCB & now you are getting constant power supply to the new valve.I think PCB needs to be changed as well.OE error was an after effect of the machine over filling.

SOURCE: The cold water fill valve

The websites for most of the major appliance manufacturers have parts diagrams for their products in the support section. Once you get the part number from the diagram for your model, you can do a web search for it. I usually end up checking five or six dealers before I find a reasonable price, and there is sometimes as much as 40% difference between dealer prices on some parts.

How do i fix e5 on the dishwasher

Three common causes.
  1. Defective solenoid water inlet valve
  2. Plugged water inlet filter
  3. Defective stop valve located where the inlet hose connects to the water line.
Problem 1 usually no water will enter. It usually works or not.
Problem 2 and 3 the situation is the tub begins not to fill and over time the filter closes completely or the stop valve plugs completely.

If you open the door after the fill cycle and you have not heard the unit fill it is most likely the fill solenoid. Partially filled need to look at the stop valve. The rubber washer of the valve deteriorates and loosens relocating over the hole plugging the water from going through. When you try to shut off the valve it in most cases will not close water tight. You can replace the stem and washer if you can find the same hardware type.

The solenoid replacement can usually be axcessed from the front but requires a skilled technican.

Hotpoint Super Plus 7821 dishwasher isn't drawing water, please help thank you


As water is filling your dishwasher, a float rises along with it. When the float reaches a predetermined level, it shuts off the flow of water, thereby preventing a leak. Sometimes the float can get stuck in the wrong position in your dishwasher, and it can prevent your dishwasher from filling. Check your float assembly. Replace it if you need to.

Water Inlet Valve

Your dishwasher may not be filling with water simply because the water valve's filter screens are dirty and debris-filled. Gain access to your water inlet valve and try cleaning it out. This might be enough to solve the problem.

Your dishwasher's drain valve is regulated by a drain solenoid. If the solenoid is malfunctioning, it may not allow the drain valve to funtion properly, which in turn could be the reason your dishwasher is not filling with water. Investigate your drain valve and test the solenoid. If the solenoid is faulty, replace it.

Washing machine wont fill

hmmm...wool requires cold water...I'm guessing that first the hot water and now the cold water solenoid valves have become clogged with sediment. test by turning off water. then loosen the hose connection to each inlet in back of washer. then slowly open water valves and let water pour into wash tub if hose will reach, otherwise pour into a bucket. if water comes out of hose, then look for metal screens at hose connections to washer and clean those. if still no water through solenoids (after re-connecting water hoses) then may need to disassemble solenoids and clean those too.
