First is to see if water is getting to the dishwasher.
Locate the fill hose which should be under the sink along side the dishwasher.
After shutting off the water, disconnect the hose and see if you have good water pressure into the fill hose by turning it back on into a bucket.
Let's say you do.
Now locate the valve at the dishwasher where that hose is connected to it.
That valve is usually under the dishwasher at the very rear, usually on the left.
That solenoid/valve has the fill hose, two wires, and a small (usually black) hose going from it up to the machine itself.
You'll need to see if that valve is getting electricity when it should be filling the machine.
There are two wires to the valve.
They should likely be getting 110 volts when the dishwasher is supposed to be filling.
If they are, the valve may be bad, if they are not, likely is a problen with the timer itself.
Be Blessed

Dishwasher not heating water already replaced in line heater element no change


Hello

Possible causes;

Incoming Water; Most manufacturers recommend that the water coming into your dishwasher be at least 120 degrees Fahrenheit. If the water is too cold, then your dishes don't clean properly. Or the dishwasher must run longer to heat up the water. Test the water temperature by running the hot water on your faucet for about 2 minutes or until it gets really hot. Place a waterproof thermometer under the water. If the water is too cold, increase the water temperature setting on your water heater.

Thermostat;The thermostat is responsible for regulating the water and drying cycle temperature. If this thermostat isn't working, the heating element at the base of the dishwasher tub may not come on. Test this element by selecting the hottest temperature setting. Run the dishwasher on the shortest cycle. Let the dishwasher run for a few minutes, and open it up. If the dishwasher water is not hot or the drying cycle isn't starting, order a new thermostat from a parts dealer since this component is difficult to fix.

Heating Element/Drying Fan; The heating element heats up the water and air. Access this element by removing the bottom rack. It looks like a long black rod. If any part of this component is broken or corroded, you must order a new one. You usually cannot fix this element. The drying fan is located in the main housing of the dishwasher, and it blows air around your dishes to dry them. Check this part by disconnecting the dishwasher from the power supply and opening up the housing. Examine the fan, and see if any dirt or debris is preventing it from moving. Clean it. If the fan won't turn at all or if the motor is burnt out, order a new fan since it's difficult to repair this part.

If your dishwasher isn't drying your dishes properly, see if you have selected a heated drying cycle. An air drying cycle doesn't completely dry your dishes. Never overload the dishwasher, as this prevents heat from circulating around your dishes, keeping them from drying properly. Plastic and Teflon

Not heating water


either your selector button is bad or the heating element in the bottom of the dishwasher. (usually the heating element) The element sometimes has a broken wire going to it. turn off the power before you work on it. good luck

Miele dishwasher not heating


hi,

you would have to turn the unit on it's side and remove the bottom plate and check with a multi meter the resistance of the heating element to see if the heating element is defective. i doubt the dishwashing liquid caused a fault other than causing the unit to over sud and spill water into the base. You could remove the panel under the door and have a look and see if you have flooded the base. if you have a float switch in the base (white polystyrene disc and switch) this will stop the unit from working as well. dry up any water and try it again. hope this helps and don't use the dishwashing liquid in the unit.

Doesn't get hot and steamy especially during rinse cycle


Try whispering sweet-nothings into its ear and kissing it. This always gets me "hot and steamy". ha, ha

But seriously, the steam you see in your dishwasher is created when the heating element inside the dishwasher heats the water up even higher than your water heater. This provides extra cleaning power. The heating element is also turned on during the drying cycle to help dry the dishes quickly. That is why you get a blast of steam when you open the door at the end of its cycle.

So no steam means either the element is bad (likely) or the controller/timer is bad (hopefully not, $$). If you know how to use an ohmmeter then you can "ohm out" the element and see if it is open (unplug the power first!!). If not, you can remove the element and take it to your parts store and ask them to do it (again, turn off the power first!!!).

If this helps you, please select YES to the first two ratings questions. Thank you, and Good Luck.

before you operate the dishwasher get your water as hot at the sink as you can this will prevent filling the dish washer with cold water and i would use powder or liquid now if you not sure of your heating element turn your washer to dry close the door for about 2-3 minutes get a glass of cold water open the door and pour water on the element if it sizzles its working

Dishwasher Heating element not working


rclay How old is your dish washer? It has up to five years limited (parts only) warranty on the electronic control. If it is within this period of time, then you can call Maytag and they will send you a new part. If you are not sure how old is it, you can find it with Maytag by the model and the serial numbers (on the door frame). The warranty for your dish washer you can get here: http://www.maytag.com/cust_serv/pdf_use_care_manual/6_915728.pdf Gendos...post back
