Re: dishwasher does not fill with water
First (I know this sounds bad but it does happen)check to see the tap is turned on (I have had where the owner thinks the tap is on and asked if I am nuts turns out the cleaning lady switched it off) If so turn off the tap and remove the inlet hose from the machine,there should be a filter in the unit where the pipe screws on this is more than likely blocked if so clean and replace pipe etc check on the tap side sometimes there is one there aswell clean if dirty,if there is still no water then we need to go deeper,the pressure switch could be fualty or there may be water in the pressure tube wich will tell the timer that the machine is full etc,I would however suggest you check the above first if you do not come right let me know and we can then investigate further.

Hi there.this is (over fill error).It has over filled & flooded water down into the base.It has tripped a flood switch in the base wich turns the drain pump on even though the washer is off.You can simply try tipping the washer to get the water out or you will need to disassemble the front kick panel at the bottom front to mop out the water.The switch will reset after you do this.Or wait a couple of days and the water will evaporate enough that the pumping will have stopped & the washer should work again.The booklet for your washer has water hight level settings in it.Sometimes someone leans against the washer and presses the buttons wich changes the water level to high & thats why this has probably happened in the first place.It may need setting to a lower level.
try running a diagnostic run on the washer. Push heated dry, normal, heated dry, normal on your cycle selection panel. After you push that sequence all the lights will light up and then it will go through a test run. This fixed my washer that had the same symtoms as yours. For some reason the diagnostic run reset the washer and it ran like new. I also checked to make sure the overfill float in the bottom of the washer could move up and down freely. It is a small white disc float. If it is stuck in the up position your washer won't fill up. Besides those suggestions, my level of mr. fix it knowledge is limited. I hope this helps.
Sounds like the float switch is out of adjustment,(or the retaining plate is loose) The float & switch are located toward the front of the tub.You can access the switch buy removing the lower panel on the front of the washer.
first I would check screen on the water fill valve. make sure it is not plugged.
also check the fill hose make sure the hose is not pinched
check that the water is turned on all the...
this dishwasher is time filled the float is to stop the dishwasher at a overfill problem...
Check to make sure that the drainline is not backed-up or obstructed. If water is draining properly, you may need to reprime your washer. It may have been turned off before being completing its cycle. To Prime, Start the dishwasher and slowly advance the timer, till you hear the water valve open and fill. Let the washer do the rest. If a loud whining noise appears and does not go away after filling, check the motor to make sure it is not locked up. If locked up. Turn washer off and attempt to turn the impellor. Once free, it should be ok
The washer may be attempting to run dry. Many times on these washers, a person may open the washer and then go to another load. The washer gets stuck with a dry pump until the timer tells water fill valve to open. Easy test. Start on regular cycle ,slowly advance the timer. it will click until you here the fill start and water will fill until.....
It seems that your motor on the dishwasher is going out, like mine has just done. My explanation is that it sounds like something is grinding on glass or as if a bunch of mice are making noise. Eventually, the motor will not run any more. What will happen is that the dishwasher will fill up, then make a loud humming noise, while the heating element is making the water near the heating element sizzle. Now what you have is a possible fire hazard which compounds the problem with the dishwasher. Get rid of it, take the loss and live like my grandmother used to, without having a dishwasher. That is the best advice I can give you.
there are three or 4 possibility's here remove the kick plate make sure the water valve is plugged up make sure the water is turned on make sure the safety float hasn't slipped off the micro switch that's the dome shaped object in the tub the micro switch is underneath next when you first turn it on do you hear the pump motor run check theese and let me know
Check the spade/lug wiring connectors under the unit at the motors They can work loose. These newer units only use the heating element for a short time. If you get it running again do not use tablet soap. Start your sink's hot water until its too hot to touch then start the washer, let the tank fill then open the door and pour in an additional gallon of hot sink water mixed up with liquid cascade soap. To get "Energy Star" compliance, They have made trade offs to use less water and energy. When mine is running it still doesnt clean very well at all. consider installing a small R.V. water heater under the sink or nearby.
Also make sure your drain hose is clear and has no kinks in it.
