GE Dishwasher won't fill (Tested valve and switches)
My GE GSD680XX02WW was making noises like it was washing with rocks. The last time I ran it, it started to smoke. When I checked it out, I saw that it was not filling. I tested the fill valve, float switch and door switch for resistance, and all checked OK. I even checked the solenoid on the drain valve, in case there was an interlock to the fill cycle (it was OK too). I am not getting any voltage to the fill valve during the fill cycle. Is this a bad timer? The motor is still running and what water is in the bottom is coming out the wash arms, so the motor is getting the "go" sign from the timer, just not the inlet valve.
Thanks in advance

Air Gap on the sink could be clogged.
Solenoid on the motor could be melted or overheated and it is not letting the check valve open.
Also the motor should make noise. It could be stuck so that it gets voltage but is not turning. You can hear it humming. Unplug the dishwasher and from the front underneath, you can see the fins of the motor. It should spin freely. If it is stuck, the you can force it free by turning the fins with a couple of screwdrivers.Sometime if you don't use the dishwasher weekly, the motor seals dry and gets stuck.
Hello ddux97 - I understand your dishwasher has power but
will not fill with water. Here are a few simple troubleshooting tips that may
help you resolve this issue:
• Make sure water supply is turned on. (First
check for shut off valve under the kitchen sink).
• Check the house circuit breaker or fuse box,
reset circuit breaker or replace fuse.
• Check inlet hose and make sure it's not twisted.
• Does float overfill protector (mushroom shaped
object in tub) move freely? This is located in the bottom left front corner of
• If this is a new install, then make sure the
unit is not pressed up against the cabinet and the fill tube is not squeezed
• Make sure the electrical wires going to the
water inlet valve have not come off. It is best to turn off power to the
dishwasher before reconnect wires, it doesn't matter which terminal is off both
need to be connected.
• Make sure the drain hose is installed correctly.
If the drain hose is routed under the floor as the dishwasher fills water can
be drawn from the tub and appear to have never filled.
• Some models of Frigidaire dishwashers use a
water pressure switch that will shut off the water valve if the tub over fills.
These models do not have floats.
I hope these troubleshooting tips help you in some small
Hello there and welcome to fixya here's no water at allIf there's no water at all, make these checks:Is there water getting to the machine?Is the water-volume selector switch set properly and are the control panel buttons pressed in all the way?If you have a Maytag® or a ge washer, is the fuse (if there is one) in the control panel at the lid-switch bracket blown? Is
there a faint buzzing or humming noise coming from the water-inlet
valve? (The water-inlet valve is the device on the washing machine that
the fill hoses are attached to.) If you can't hear anything, the
water-inlet valve may not be getting any power. If you can hear some
noise and there's water present, you may need to completely replace the
water-inlet valve. Please keep m,e posted on what you find so i can continue to help troubleshoot
and replace any parts that you may need ok Best regards Michael
Yes, probably a control board, or wiring to the valve from the board. Call Whirlpool with your model and serial number, if the manufacturing date is within the last year, they will cover the repair without a date of purchase. Or you can contact the seller and see if they have a date of purchase for you. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists
GE Triton dishwasher loud noise after draining water. We started to hear a sustained and loud noise after water is drained. This noise is not heard during washing and draining times. What is wrong? Thanks a lot!
if the dishwasher is only filling when u hear the noise it could be a bad water valve or if you are lucky it could be the screen in your water valve is dirty, however if it is filling and washing at the same time and you hear a noise like sqeeling it could be your motor, before u replace the motor. check the water valve or screen on valve may be dirty
