Question about Dishwashers
Turn dishwasher on no water getting to it, element working
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.
