Question about Samsung Dishwashers

Open Question

Fills, drains but does not wash

- About 1.5 years old (I am pretty sure this is it:http://www.samsung.com/ca/consumer/home-appliances/dishwashers/dishwashers/DMT610RHS/XAC) - Fills with water and display indicates it is washing however, aside from a few clicks nothing is happening inside. - Display continues to show the machine is going through the cycle and then it drains. Any suggestions? THANK YOU!

SOURCE: Kenmore dishwasher 58715142400 fills but doesn't wash

Motor has gone out..just like mine...Make sure u have voltage going to the motor, (disconnect the plug from the motor) and use an electric meter to make sure you have voltage going to the motor. If so the motor has either gone out or has been blocked by something! If no noise except clicking then motor has gone out. Looking at about $150 for motor.

SOURCE: washer

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!

SOURCE: Dishwasher tub slowly fills with water after after completion

the internal parts of the valve are sticking open randomley.the diaphram/piston in the valve most likley have lime deposits on it due to poor water quality.you would need the water valve assembly but before you buy this part i would look where the water line goes into the dishwasher and it will lead you to the valve.remove the valve from the unit and disassemble the valve.clean all the internal parts in the valve and reinstall.75% of the time this works ,if not change the valve.

SOURCE: Dishwasher will not go thru wash cycles

if the water is not draining at all in any of the cycle it is probably the discharged line at the bottom of the pump has become blocked. there is an access panel at the bottom of the dishwasher which will allow you access the line. take the line off of the fitting , use a set of vise grips to remove the fitting from the base of the pump.You will probably find corn or rice lodged in the diaphragm within the fitting, remove debris and reinsert the fitting and hose. Hopefully this is helpful to you.

First check the drain hose isn't too far down the drain pipe it should only be about 6 inches down too much and it will siphon out

My washing machine is not changing cycles. It fills, drains and refills. It sat unused for 1 year. 12 months ago it was working fine.


Hi there. I can help you.

When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:


  • It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.

  • It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. If this is the case, turn off the water and remove the hoses. Check both hoses to be sure the filter screens are not clogged with crud and that the hoses aren't kinked.

Washer fills, drains instead of agitating, fills, etc


ON THIS MACHINE WHEN IT AGGITATES MOTOR ROTATES ONE DIRECTION, WHEN IT PUMPS OUT AND SPINS IT ROTATES THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION. YOUR MACHINE IS ROTATING THE WRONG DIRECTION WHEN IT FILLS., INDICATING THAT THE TIMER IS SENDING VOLTAGE TO WRONG WIRES. SOLUTION , REPLACE TIMER.
PS: MAKE SURE ALL WIRES ARE PLUGGED IN TO MOTOR. WHILE THIS IS UNLIKELY , I HAVE SEEN THIS BE THE PROBLEM.
