Water is not pumping into dishwasher

This is a brand new dishwasher never taken out of box, about 4 years old. It was wired correctly, water placed into tub to lube pump. Everything works on this dishwasher except the pump. I checked to see if any power was reaching the pump/water release valve and no volts was coming through the wires as I patiently waited for it to completing the cycle. Could this be a wiring issue, circuit board, or obviously it's not the valve since there isn't any power coming to it.
Please help, so I can fix this or order the parts.
Thank you

    Thanks for your help! I have tried everything even disconnecting the water hose and turn it on to see if it was clogged. I have no volt (power) going to the release pump (which releases water from water source hose into dishwasher. The float valve works and is receiving power. the door switch is working so I think it could only be power going to the valve, the valve could also be faulty, or it could be the circuit board.

    Does anyone have any suggestions or has delt with something simular to this.

    please help..........

When you connected the water line did you remember to turn the water valve on?

Why won't the water stay in the basin of my dishwasher? Why does the water run out of my dishwasher as it is trying to fill? The fill valve opens, water runs into the washer and directly out of the dr

There are two ways water can get out of your dishwasher. 1, it the tub is cracked and the water leaks out. If that were happening then you'd probably already know since there would be a lot of water somewhere it shouldn't be. 2, if for some reason the drain pump is "stuck" in the on position and is running while the fill valve is open. You could check this by turning the water to your dishwasher OFF and then set it to run a load. When it attempts to start you should hear the valve open and nothing more. If you can hear the drain pump running then you've narrowed the problem this far. The next step would be confirm that all mechanical switches (and/or relays) are operating correctly. Finally, you may want to look up a schematic/wiring diagram for your model and see if it shows any mechanical switches that control the drain pump (like a "high water level" switch) that could be stuck closed. Hope some of this helps.

Re-verify the thermal fuse.
If the new wire that came with the fuse was not used the fuse will blow again.
Check the door switch for continuity.
The power to all parts goes through the door switch first.
Open the wire terminal box and check the incoming power wires for good contact.
The drain pump may have a blockage in it as well.

Dishwasher is not cleaning dishes. Dishwasher

One possibility is that there is collection of waste inside the drain pump and filter. If you have cleaned these parts as per instructions in the user guide and there is no difference, then try using a dishwasher cleaner which is available as a liquid in a special dispenser for one off use in an empty dishwasher. This is available in the supermarket.

Hard to know what the plumbing changes were done, but if the dishwasher was taken out and put back in then make sure the drain hose is connected at the correct height. The pump might be working harder than previously which would leave the muck behind.

New dishwasher leaving powder residue on dishes.

Quit using the new Cascade. The formula change is what is causing the problem. No research from Cascade before releasing the product

ASKO 1605

Hi Guys
My dishwasher this morning has desided to not work correctly.
Its a ASKO 1302 about 20 years old. It has been a very good machine.
Over the last couple of weeks during the washing cycle, the dishwasher has been making a loader noise than usual.
1. Today, the dishwasher timer, travels all the way through its cycle, but very little washing take place.
2. Soap power is still there, plates not clean!!!!
3. Water is hot
4. At the end of the cycle, there is no water in the dishwasher.
5. I'm thinking the problem could be the pump needs replacing.
What do you think?

If I'm not mistaken, these dishwashers are built by Asko for Viking. If thats the case then you probably have a bad circulation pump. Under Asko's warranty (not sure if Viking is the same) these pumps are covered parts and labor for 3 years from installation date, and 5 years for the part only. The pump is accesed from the back of the machine,so you have to pull out the dishwasher. Then you remove the lower plate in the rear and the motor at the very back center is the pump. You remove it by turning it about a 1/4 turn either clockwise or counter clockwise, depending on the style, then place the new one in and turn it to lock it in place, being careful that the sealing oring stays in place or youll get a leak. The part will probably cost you around $150 unless viking marks theirs up more than Asko. Good Luck!
