Question about Kenmore 24 in. 15689 Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

No power to the main water valve during cycle.

I start the normal, or anyother, cycle and do not get power to the main water valve. 20+ seconds later, the circulation pump comes on with no water to circulate. Is there a relay or fuse in this circuit? Where do I look?

I'm no expert, but I recently had a fill valve replaced. There is a float switch at the bottom of most dishwashers. Its purpose is to cut power to the normally-closed electrically-opened fill valve in the event of an overfill. If the float switch "thinks" there is an over-fill situation, it will cut power to valve, closing it. I would start with replacing the float switch or checking to ensure that it is not stuck in the "up" position due to debris.

Again, I'm no expert.

Water-inlet valve Most cleaning problems are caused by the dishwasher not getting enough wash water, so the water-inlet valve is often to blame. This valve is usually at the bottom left or right of the dishwasher, behind the lower access panel. It's the device with the main water line from the house, a rubber tube to the dishwasher, and two wires attached to it. When a water-inlet valve is defective, you may hear the sound that's usually referred to as "water hammer." If the water-inlet valve is defective, you need to completely replace it.

Be sure to read and understand any instructions that come with the new water inlet valve.

Indesit de3542 starts to go but stops after about 30 seconds


That is a discharging problem. What you can try initially is turn it off and unplug the power cable for about 2-3 hours to release any static charges. Then plug it back in. If that doesn't work, there's an internal electronics component that needs to be check. Discharging is a capacitor problem. There might a burned or bulged capacitor that needs to be replaced.

How do i use it, do i turn water on, when it starts on normal mode it seems to shut off, do i leave the water on the whole time.. im lost


A built-in dishwasher should be connected to a hot water line under your sink, usually on the same valve as the sink. It is normal to have the water turned on all the time as there is an electrically operated valve that will supply water into the dishwasher as needed during the wash and rinse cycles. If your model includes a "sani-heat" or other setting that ensures the water is hot enough to do a good job, then you may observe a period of no audible activity during which the water that was drawn into the dishwasher is heated with the electric element below the basket or drawer where your dishes are arranged. With the water turned on, run a full cycle using the pot-clean or heavy duty wash as the starting point. If you have only push-buttons then choose the one that sounds like a full cycle. Anytime during the operation you may open the door latch to see what is going on, then close it again to resume the cycle. If you are not getting water into the dishwasher then you should check the valve and the tubing... you can remove the tubing and try filling a small bucket if you are handy with plumbing and not prone to damaging small compression nuts on plastic or brass valve ports. If water is flowing check for power at the outlet -- where I live they all use a 3-prong plug under the sink to a GFCI outlet. If your unit is hardwired then check power carefully or with the help of a qualified repairman.

Motor makes noise shortly after starting, makes normal sound level during main body of wash, then makes noise again during what I'm guessing is the rinse cycle. Not sure if it is a pump or motor problem....


Make sure the sprayer arm is turning freely, check for something stuck in the base of the sprayer arm (food or utinsel) preventing it from turning.

My dishwasher is not filling up water to start the washing cycle when the door is closed


Asuming you have an AM15, Check you have power to the fill valve during fill cycle. Make sure your drain is closed to retain the fill water. You should have 20 psi flow rate.

Hobart LX15H indicates E4 and will not fill.


This is what I found in the manual...and on a couple of other sites....

Machine won't fill or won't fill high enough(LX18, LX30 display shows "E0," "E2," "E3," or "E4")

1.Low water pressure — check for clogged hose strainer; check that site water pressure meets minimum flow pressures.
2.Make sure probes are clean.
3.No water pressure — main water supply valves may not be working.
4.Drain valve open - turn machine off to drain machine, then on. Repeat twice (this assists in clearing any drain valve obstructions). Wait for machine to reach READY mode and press WASH. Slowly open door several seconds later and note water level. Close door; 30 seconds later, open door slowly and check that water level is the same as it was. If not, repeat the
OFF-ON procedure.
5. Delime machine.

If this doesn't help let me know and I will get to the bottom of it....good luck and thanks for rating my effort...The Fang.

Bosch dishwasher has water in bottom after cycle is complete


Hi

Kindly check for the following :

Check for hose kinks or food plugging drain hose. Start at the drain port exit.
Check the check valve and drain hose for debris.
Check pump motor for reversing during the pump out make sure the dishwasher is pausing between the wash and drain cycles letting the pump/motor reverse for the drain cycle.
Check pump motor assembly for a drain solenoid, during the pump out make sure the solenoid makes that distinctive "clunk" noise
If you have recently installed a new garbage disposal, check knock-out plug at connection.

Check pump impeller for damage.
Check that the water inlet valve isn't seeping fresh water into the dishwasher when off.

Please contact for any further clarifications.

A Fixya Rating would be appreciated if.

Thanks

Hello bckp,
Welcome to Fixya


If your dishwasher does not run or stops during a cycle

Is the Start/Resume indicator flashing? Opening the door or
interrupting the power stopped the cycle. Close the door and
press START/RESUME.
Does the Start/Resume indicator flash 3 times when you
press START/RESUME? The dishwasher is waiting for you to
open the door after the last cycle. Open and close the door,
then press START/RESUME.
Is the door closed tightly and latched?
(NOTE: On models with a dual-digit display, the control
displays “- -” during a cycle if it believes the door is not
latched.)
Is the right cycle selected? Refer to the “Cycle Selection
Charts.”
Is there power to the dishwasher? Has a household fuse
blown, or has a circuit breaker tripped?
Has the motor stopped due to an overload? The motor
automatically resets itself within a few minutes. If it does not
restart, call for service.
Is the water shutoff valve (if installed) turned on?
It is normal for certain cycles to repeatedly pause for several
seconds during the main wash.

If the dishwasher will not fill

Check the overfill protection float that is able to move up and down
freely? Press down to release.

Let me know if any of these procedures helped you?

Kitchen aid dishwasher


Either:
  1. the water does not get into the dishwasher open the dishwasher 3-4 times during cycle, you should see some water at least once, if not - check water valve, water level float and water pressure.
  2. the pump is clogged - there is water, the motor will run but no water is circulated. Check pump filters, check chopper and impeller.
  3. motor in main pump is not working - could be caused by something stuck on the impeller or chopper or could be a problem with the motor itself or control board. Check if line voltage is coming to the motor during wash/rinse cycle.
Good luck,
