Assuming you have a built-in dishwasher.
Get a good strong flashlight.
Remove the front lower panel below the door to the dishwasher, and look to the rear, usually the left rear in the back . The valve is about the size of your fist, maybe a little smaller. It has 2 wires going to it, and sometimes the valve is blue plastic. It also has the inlet water hose attached to it, and a hose that goes from it to the machine itself. Sometimes the hose from the valve to he machine is black in color.
If you can't possible see it, try to pull the machine half way out from under the countertop.
You will do this by removing the two small screws above the door holding the two small tabs to the countertop.
Pull the machine gently out halfway, then you may be able to locate the valve more easily.
You should not try to pull the machine out farther because there are 3 important items holding it . One is the wiring, one is the inlet hose, and one is the waste water hose.

Your inlet hose probably came loose on the left side of the dishwasher. If you pull the d/w out 6 inch. or so you will see the s-shaped hose going to the inlet port on the tub. Make sure it's not pinched or leaking..Catriver

SOURCE: no water entering machine

IT COULD BE THE FLOAT SWITCH ASSEMBLY> PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING VERY CAREFULLY AS WATER AND POWER DONT MIX WELL Before testing the float switch, unplug the dishwasher or shut off the power at the fuse box or breaker panel to avoid an electrical shock hazard. When the water in the tub lifts the float to a set point, the float switch is triggered and it shuts off the water inlet valve, stopping the flow of water. If the float switch is defective, the tub may overfill.If the float switch is obstructed or corroded it can prevent the tub from filling by holding the fill valve off !!so locate, check and clean. To access the float switch remove the lower panel located beneath the door. The panel is usually held in place with two screws either above or below the panel. It may be necessary to first open the door to the dishwasher to reach the screws over the panel, then close the door to remove the panel. Note the location of the float in the dishwasher's tub and you will find the float switch beneath it in the access area. The switch has two wires connected to it. Label the wires and connections so that you can properly reconnect them later. The wires are connected with slip on connectors. Firmly pull the connectors off of the terminals (do not pull on the wire itself). You may need to use a pair of needle-nose pliers to remove the connectors. Inspect the connectors and the terminals for corrosion. If either is corroded they should be cleaned or replaced. Use a continuity tester or multitester to test for continuity. Set the multitester to the ohms setting X1. Touch one probe to each terminal. You should get a reading of either zero or infinity. With the probes still in place, depress the button or lever on the switch and the reading should change to the opposite extreme

SOURCE: IE error message

Hi, had the same problem on a LG LD 12aw5. (No water entering). Check the inlet solonoid. There should be 220V over the solonoid. I replaced the solonoid, at first, just to have the same problem. The problem was a bit more serious, the Triac driving the solonoid burnt out, and the solder on the mainboard keeping the transformer were shot to. I replaced the Triac, soldered the Transformer - and wolla - working. If water enters - but you sill get the IE error it could be the float(checks the water level). This device tells the machine when there is enough water. If this is stuck, the machine will think no water is entering. conrad_dot_dewet@gmail.com - replace "_dot_" with "." to email me.

Please verify that the hose screen is not plugged.
3.8k is good.
Did you try putting your hand carefully on the body of the valve to check for the clicking sound/vibration at the solenoid?
If you here/feel something, you may just have a plug-up.
Otherwise if there is no noise and since the solenoid coil checks out, You should also check to see if there is voltage to the solenoid coil.
The solenoid could also be stuck and a few taps could loosen junk from it.
Always observe safety!
If there is voltage, by putting a meter across the coil terminals, then you do have a stuck or shot solenoid and the entire valve/solenoid assembly should be replaced.

Try a hard reset first..Unplug the machine from power source, wait about 10 minutes, and try again..The other thing you can do is to check the water inlet valve and tubing for any kinks, etc..

If the issue still occurs, better call the point of sale or the manufacturer, as your machine is still under warranty. I wouldn't recommend opening it up to conduct any repairs as it will void the warranty.

I have no water coming into the dishwasher, i have cleaned the filter but it will not operate. The dishwaher is on but no water is coming into the unit


Hello there
If there's no water entering your dishwasher, check these: Water-inlet valve The water-inlet valve lets water enter the machine. If this valve is defective, you need to completely replace it. It's usually located behind the lower access panel on the left or right side. It's the device with the main water line (usually copper) from the house, a rubber tube to the dishwasher, and two wires attached to it. Float switch The float switch is a small electrical switch that's located right below the dishwasher "floor." Above the switch, on the inside of the dishwasher, is a plastic cylinder that floats up as water fills the dishwasher. If this switch is defective, or if the plastic float gets caught or trapped in the raised position, the water can't enter the dishwasher. If the float switch is defective, you need to replace it.

The washing machine won't fill with water at all. we have cleaned the pump valve and we have checked the water lines. are there any other things that could be causing this problem?


You will want to check and make sure the door handle/lock is switching on. the front load unit will not fill with water with the door open. Check that the latch is engaging.

Viking refrigerator not dispensing water and no ice...


Water line is blocked somewhere, or water inlet valve is malfunctioning.

Check the line coming from the house plumbing and make sure water is getting to the refrigerator. If it is, you likely have a bad valve. These are readily available, are fairly inexpensive, and easy to replace. It should be underneath the freezer close to the back of the refrigerator. Follow the water line to where it enters the refrigerator. The valve should be there.

No water, sounds normal . might be silenoid switch on inlet valve? vud140 viking dw


could be the water valve silenoid connection clip to the power source has been disconnected, 2) water valve is clogged with debris, 3) water valve silenoid has gone bad. I think one of these three things may be your problem. Good Luck

No water going to feed machine


There's no hot water Some washing machines allow hot water to enter only during certain cycles. Others intermittently allow hot and cold to enter, to temper the temperature of the water. Consult your owner's manual if you are unsure about whether the machine is acting abnormally.

If you're sure the machine isn't working the way it used to--or should--try these tests:

  • Is the hot water turned on? If not, turn it on.


  • Is the washer getting cold water but no hot water? If so, check to see if the control panel settings are correct.


  • Is there hot water coming through the proper hose? If not, check to see if the screen inside the water-inlet valve is clean. (The water-inlet valve is the device on the washing machine that the fill hoses are attached to.) If it's clean, you probably have a defective water-inlet valve. If so, completely replace it.

  • Is there water getting to the machine?


  • Is the water-volume selector switch set properly and are the control panel buttons pressed in all the way?


  • If you have a Maytag® washer, is the fuse (if there is one) in the control panel at the lid-switch bracket blown?


  • Is there a faint buzzing or humming noise coming from the water-inlet valve? (The water-inlet valve is the device on the washing machine that the fill hoses are attached to.) If you can't hear anything, the water-inlet valve may not be getting any power. If you can hear some noise and there's water present, you may need to completely replace the water-inlet valve.
