    I wrote - the machine won't take any water after initial fill at the start of the cycle (any cycle - normal, light, pots), rinse and drain. After the first drainage I can hear it opens the detergent door, but could not hear the solenoid hum and no water is entering the tab. I suspect it is not a valve or a float or my water supply, but rather control unit.

Water Inlet Valve

The dishwasher has an electrical water valve called a water inlet valve. If the dishwasher won't fill with water, the water inlet valve might be defective. These valves are not repairable and will have to be replaced.

Float

The float assembly is normally inside the dishwasher near the door on the floor of the dishwasher. If something gets stuck underneath it and holds the float assembly up, the dishwasher won't fill with water. If the float assembly moves freely up and down, the float switch might be defective.

Float Switch

The float switch is actuated by the float assembly. It is a protection device designed to prevent the dishwasher from overfilling. If the dishwasher won't fill with water, it may be because this float switch is defective or stuck.

Water Supply Problem

The dishwasher is connected to the hot water supply from the house. Check to be sure the household water supply valve is turned on. Over time, calcium deposits can build up in the water supply valve or in the small filter screen inside the water inlet valve. The water supply line may need to be removed from the water inlet valve of the dishwasher, then run some water into a bucket to see if there is enough pressure. Be certain to turn off the water before working on the water line.

Button on sprayer is sticking with no spray


This is typical behavior or sprayers that aren't looked after. Mine typically last 20 years. After use, you need to empty it, wash it, pump the soap through, rinse it, pump the clean water through, empty it and blow air through it. Then leave it open to dry.

Take the wand off, and take everything apart and soak the parts in hot soapy water in your bathtub. Rinse and dry, rub any o-rings with vaseline.

My 5 year old Roper washing machine fills up, washes/agitates the cloths, drains them when the washer get to the rinse line to start the rinse cycle it stops, and all I hear is a humming. The machine will...


I'm not familiar with roper washing machines so I'll ask the question does it have two fill hoses. Most European machines now only have one fill. If it has two then it sound like the machine takes the initial water from the one fill and the rinse cycle water from another. The humming sounds like the valve for the other fill needs replacing. These are quite inexpensive and easy to fit. Power off.. remove lid ....switch of water...take out valve when you establish which one is affected and replace

Whirlpool du1055xtss3 not working


I dont know if this indicates a malfunction or not. One user manual may cover several years while many modifications can take place. Ask yourself if any other part of the process can contribute to this. You have electricity to the control board or it will not flash these display indicators.
Is the water on?
Is the waterline kinked under or behind the machine?
Is it connected to hot water? A heater raises the hot water quickly but cold water takes alot longer to reach operating temp. Since the hottest program id pots and pans, this may indicate the heater is bad but since you were able to change the display to pp and normal I think you entered into a controls sequence that technicians can do to make changes to some parameters like temperature setting or water hardness. See if you can get a whirlpool tech to break the grip on his service manual and send you a page by email. Good luck.

it is likely a control module issue. I will take mine apart this weekend to verify what others have said: solder joint on circuitboard burns out from possible overheating, and DW doesnt go into rinse cycle. Try rinse and hold cycle to see if it stops on its own. mine does, but the other cycles which require the rinse to go to 156 degrees do not; the continue to run until I cancel and drain.

Does Not Rinse


Check each temperature during initial wash fill. Set to hot water, is hot water coming out? Set to cold water, is cold water coming out? The rinse cycle is cold only. If cold water is not working machine will just stop at rinse.

If cold water not working:
Disconnect cold water hose from machine. Inspect the filter screen on the cold water connection. DO NOT REMOVE SCREEN. If full of debris, use a spray bottle with a hard spray to remove debris. If unable to remove or cold is still not working, replace valve.

Dishwasher


Can't really supply a solution, mine has done this since Christmas. Mine seems to be related to the volume of water taken(or indeed not) into the machine. I have resorted to chucking a bowl of water into the bottom at the start (after the initial draining cycle) of the programme and during the rinse. Not exactly automatic & I can't imagine it will do the pump much good flogging it without a sufficient prime, however it works for me. I'll keep an eye to see if a more substantive fix comes along. Best wishes.
