Dishwasher not filling


The water float switch, located on the inside bottom of the machine, may be stuck in the up(off) position keeping the water valve from functioning. This is a safety device that turns the water valve off when the machine fills in order to keep it from overflowing.

The water inlet solenoid mounted on the inlet valve under the bottom front may also be malfunctioning not allowing the water valve to open and fill the machine. If electricity is present at the solenoid terminals when the machine is in fill cycle, then check the solenoid coil to see if it is open(no continuity). Also, the timer may not be calling for water/ sending voltage to the inlet valve solenoid.

I would start by manually operating the water float valve a few time to see if that helps. You should hear a microswitch click each time the valve stem is moved up or down by the float. If not, check to see if voltage is getting to the float switch and the water inlet valve solenoid.

Most(if not all) machines have a safety cutoff switch which activates when the door is opened. That switch could also be malfunctioning not allowing voltage to the water inlet valve solenoid in fill cycle.

Switch dishwasher on and starts up ok but when it comes to pumping water in it stops and does not do anything else.


Hello

Investigate these five areas if your dishwasher won't fill with water:

As water is filling your dishwasher, a float rises along with it. When the float reaches a predetermined level, it shuts off the flow of water, thereby preventing a leak. Sometimes the float can get stuck in the wrong position in your dishwasher, and it can prevent your dishwasher from filling. Check your float assembly. Replace it if you need to.

The water that fills your dishwasher lifts the float, and when it reaches a certain level, it acts as a trigger for the float switch. The float triggers the float switch to shut off, thereby shutting off the flow of water into the dishwasher. A defective switch may interfere with your dishwasher's filling ability.

Your dishwasher may not be filling with water simply because the water valve's filter screens are dirty and debris-filled. Gain access to your water inlet valve and try cleaning it out. This might be enough to solve the problem. You can learn how to access your water inlet valve in the replace a dishwasher water inlet valve section.

Alternatively, your water inlet valve could be defective altogether. That could be the reason your dishwasher is not filling. Test it for continuity. If it is not functioning as it should, replace it.

Your dishwasher's drain valve is regulated by a drain solenoid. If the solenoid is malfunctioning, it may not allow the drain valve to funtion properly, which in turn could be the reason your dishwasher is not filling with water. Investigate your drain valve and test the solenoid. If the solenoid is faulty, replace it.

Hi there. My Maytag MSE 760 FARS dishwasher is not filling, but the heating element is working. I suspect the pump has failed. What do I do?


Hello,
what you can check,

  1. the float in the tub.their may be something caught under it
  2. the water valve,use a meter set to check ac voltage and check for 120 volts ac at the plug to it,if has 120 when supposed to fill valve is bad so long at it has water supply to it
  3. the float switch,use meter set to lowest ohms setting and remove the 2 wires on float switch and check for continunity(zero ohms) if meter reads OL replace float switch
  4. the control,check for 120 volts ac to float switch when supposed to fill, if 120 at fill portion yet no fill ,replace control
  5. water supply,if uses flex tube something in cabinet under sink may have pinched water line
Good luck,i hope this helps

Not getting water to go Got washing


Hello,

Their are a few things that will prevent it from filling
  1. The float in the tub has something caught under it..pull out lower rack and check
  2. The float switch is bad...pull off kick plate below door and use a meter set to a low ohms setting and when checking switch if good will be zero ohms. OL if bad
  3. the control is bad and not sending power to float switch..use meter set to volts ac check for 120 volts ac to switch. to do that place one meter lead on a wire on float switch and on the a metal peice (leg,frame ect) and check for 120 vac, if 120 vac at switch the control is good if not replace control, this check must be done when d/w is supposed to fill( usually at the begining of a cycle)
  4. water valve.. use meter set check vac and check for 120 vac to plug(one meter lead on each wire) when supposed to fill, if 120 vac,needs inlet water valve
  5. water from house plumbing is restricted...loosen supply line nut and check for incoming water
Good luck,i hope this helps

Dishwasher will not fill with water when turned on


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly
The following steps require using electrical power. You assume all responsibility / risk for any mis-fortunes cause by working on this dishwasher with power applied.

The first step will require using a meter on the water valve solenoid teminals.
- Remove all power.
- Remove the lower toe / kick panel(s).
- Locate the main water supply line and follow that to the inlet water valve.
- Slide the connector(s) off of the solenoid and read resistance on meter scale R x 1 or R x 10. You should read a low resistance. If you do not read any resistance the inlet water valve has failed.
If you do read resistance you must check switch the meter to AC voltage and apply power and read for AC voltage on the teminals of the wire harness.
- Start a reular wash cycle to where the unit should be filing with water.
it SHOULD read 120 VAC.
If you have no power at the connector teminals
- Check the float switch plastic FLOAT. If the float is stuck in the UP position due to food particulate on the FLOAT stem you willnot have power to the inlet water valve solenoid.
If you have power to inlet water valve solenoid and it is buzzing / humming but you get no water there is debris in the main water supply line. You wil have to shut off the water supply and clean out the inlet of the water valve.

The inlet water valve replaement part is here:

This is what the float looks like:
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/Appliance-Parts/bosch-float-item-number-ap2802399.aspx

This is the level switch assembly:
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/Appliance-Parts/bosch-level-switch-assembly-item-number-ap2802390.aspx

This is the actual Float switch: (3 terminal)
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/Appliance-Parts/bosch-float-switch--3-terminal--item-number-ap2802373.aspx POWER to the inlet water valve solenoid comes from this switch.

Check for s stuck float... and that the level switch is actuated as the float id lifed gently up and down. If you do not hear a micro-switch click the switch is bad. If the float is hard to move... clean it as best you can so that it moves freely up and down.

One of the above is causing your problem.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Dishwasher does not fill with water, checked float and it is good. so signal at water valve. But i get a good ohm reading on the valve.


Is the valve opening. Since you have a meter set it to the a c voltage range, and check whether you get voltage to solenoid coil where you tested coil resistance. If no voltage reaching check the control board.

For a trial fill water manually to the wash chamber and run the machine. If it runs OK the machine is OK. Otherwise check the float switch/ pressure switch and diagonise further

My Bosch excell switches on, but does not fill with water. The impeller is working and there are no blockages. Any ideas?


Hi.



The following parts must be tested:


Check the inlet hose at the back of the appliance. Ensure that is not kinked or blocked.


Check the water level device. There must be a float switch inside the Tub. Some model may also have a pressure switch. The water level switch is tested bypassing it or testing continuity with an Ohm meter.


Check the inlet valve . This is tested reading impedance on valve solenoid contacts. The solenoid must show continuity on the Ohm meter.


If you need to call a technician ring the number listed on the owners manual.


Regards.

Miele Premier Dishwasher will not fill with water


click on this link directly to check out how fill valve looks http://www.applianceaid.com/images/fillvalve.JPG you will have to remove the access panels to reach the fill valve click on this link to get more instructions http://www.applianceaid.com/dishaccess.html --------- This is often the fill valve. You can test the fill valve coil for continuity with a ohm meter, no needle movement = bad fill valve. You can also test the fill valve for 120 volts at the fill valve with a volt meter, power there and no fill = bad fill valve. No 120 volts there, you will have to trace power back to find the trouble maker. Test things like the float and float switch, wires and timer. Fill valves are very bad for working once or twice and then quitting, if your dishwasher fills the first and second fill cycles and then no more water through the rest of the cycle, replace the fill valve. You will need to remove the access panels to get at the fill valve. Dishwasher fill valves also have a screen built into the valve entrance, this can also get all clogged up and need to be cleaned. -------- also click on this link directly to get all types of troubleshooting instructions http://www.applianceaid.com/dish.html -------- This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya.

Not enough water


Be aware that you should remove dishwasher's power cable before touching wires or making resistance measuring !!! Check that the inlet valve get power. In case it does and no water entering the tub, check with multi-meter for solenoid's resistance (disconnect first the wires to it),if no measurement result, you should replace the valve. In case you have a measurement result, remove the solenoid from the valve and check that it's clean from any dirt. In case there is no power to the inlet valve - check that the float switch works. This is usually a small switch attached to a float. The float (usually a cylindrical) located inside the dishwasher at the bottom. As the water level rises, the float rises too. When it reaches the certain height, the float activates its switch, which cuts the electricity to the water inlet valve. If the switch is defective (stuck in the disconnected position)it will prevent power from the inlet valve. The switch is an On/Off switch and you can check it easily by a multi-metr. Good luck !!
