A dishwasher needs access to water numerous times during it's cycle. You'll have to have the hose on the tap with water pressure on while the machine is in operation. You could exchange your tap for one with thread or install a second one behind the current one.
(Slightly agricultural repair)
When installing a dishwasher the drain hose outlet MUST be above the water level in the machine or the water will run out as soon as it is put in...They usually connect to the S bend under the sink.
It would probably be best to have a handyman/plumber attend to the job.
As i suppose you know by replacing the water inlet valve that the F-H error code means now water was detected entering the washer. having replaced the water valve,one thing you should check,espically if using"aqua flow flood stop" braided steel inlet hoses from the house water supply,is if water is flowing through the inlet hoses into the washer, if your using that type of hose from the faucet they have a problem in them and the internal flood stop device inside the hose fails and even though the water faucets are on no water is getting into the washing machine. Also or even if using those type hoses disconnect them from washer and check for water flow through them when not connected to washer. If water flow is good into washer replace this part called the flow meter part # W10110225 it measures and tells the control that water is coming into the washer. It the flow meter can of course be purchased where you got the water inlet valve.
Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.
Turn off the water at the wall connection and remove the water hoses from the inlet water valve. Remove the inlet screens and wash them under slowly running water by rubbing your fingers over them. Reinstall the inlet screens and re-connect the water hoses to the machine. Remove the hoses at the wall connection and make sure the installer has not installed inlet screens on the hoses. If there are inlet screens on the hoses also clean the inlet screens. Then reconnect the hoses.. turn on the water and test for leaks then test the machine.
This should get you going unless you have relly low water pressure in the home.
There is most likely debris from the plumbing repair / install of the hot water heater that has migrated into the inlet screens of the washing machine. Turn off the water supply. Remove the water hoses from the water inlet valve and then use a thin bnladed kinfe to coax the inlet screens out of the inlet water valve body. Wash then under slow running water by gently rubbing your fingers over them until they are clean. Hod the screens up to a light source to make sure you have them totally clean. Reinstall the CLEANED screens and connect the water. This should correct the HC code.
If not there is one more series of steps to do:
- Water supply OFF
- Remove both hoses at water valve inlet
- Remove the inlet screens
- Reconnect BOTH hoses to the inlet water valve.
- Remove ONE hose from the Wall water supply and place it in a bucket TURN ON THE REMAINING HOSE connected to the wall.
- Start a WARM fill cycle and tap the water valve hose connections with the HANDLE of a hammer or the head of a very large screw driver while the unit is filling. (15 seconds)
- Stop fill cycle and turn off water to connected hose
- Reconnect removed hose to the wall connection.
- Reverse hose positons and place 2nd hose in the bucket. Thern ON the hose still connected to the wall.
- Start a WARM FILL cycle.
- Gently tap the water valve hose connections 15 seconds
- STOP Fill
- reinstall inlet screens and connect all hoses.
- test fill cycle and return to normal service
If it has 2 inlets at the rear, then you need to connect the cold supply to the hot and cold inlets by means of a Y piece, available from most major retail stores like B&Q, or a plumbers merchants.
If only 1 water inlet, then simply connect to the inlet valve.
Washing machine is a hot and cold fill, but I only have a cold water
You can use a Y Piece connector
(external link 4Washerhelp spares) to connect the hot and cold fill
hoses to a single cold water supply. The washing machine will then work
OK. Simply screw the Y-Piece onto the tap, and then screw the hot and
cold fill hoses to the Y-piece and connect the other end of the fill
hoses to the washing machine. (You may be able to buy this part also
from a DIY store like B&Q)
Hi, A simple problem can disable a washing machine: if water runs back into a washing machine from the drainage hose, then the aqua-stop engages. This can happen due to a defective water pump. In this case it could help to tilt the washing machine so that the water drains and the aqua-stop is deactivated. (Of course you’ll have to fix the cause of the problem beforehand).
