Homark semi integrated dishwasher 01/02-800270

My dishwasher will not fill properly. It does get a little water but not enough to cover the electric heating element inside. I can empty it. Is it a water level switch problem. Any help would be gratefully recived.

    fills with water but does not cover the heating element. Heating element gets warm MACHINE DOES NOT GO THROUGH ITS CYCLE BUT DOES EMPTY WATER OUT

    It turns out that old dishwashers do not have a water sensor switch underneath to know when seals have failed and water is leaking slightly. The whole underneath was really rusty and the dishwasher had to be scrapped as it was uneconomic to repair. New dishwashers should have this water sensor switch so make sure that it does when purchasing.

I think i may have the same problem, the timer on my mchine may have broke, first the detrgent door would not open, then the heater element would heat intermitantly. problem i have is the timer is obsolete, machine is 14 years old the inside looks new this is the firsty and possibly last time it let me down to check opperation hold the timer knob firmly push in simultaniously turn sloowly through the stages the timer may opperate as the contacts would not have worn. my theory!!

Food particles on dishes


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. First of all please check the Water temperature by using a thermometer inside the dishwasher to measure the water temp. It should be as close to 125 degree F to 140 degree F as possible. Now try using the temperature boost feature if your dishwasher is equipped with this cycle feature and check if this will help your wash ability issues.

Now check the Powder soap by making sure that you store your soap in a dry environment and it is not stale and clumping together. Possibly try a different detergent like a liquid or gel. Also, make sure the dishes are loaded properly, or dishwasher is not overloaded.

To check the proper filling dishwasher will fill with water up to and around the heating element. If water is more below the heating element, you may have low water pressure or a problem with the fill valve. Try & listen if it sounds like it is spraying the water around with enough pressure.

For low water pressure, try to clean the screen at the entrance of the fill valve, sometimes the fill valve can fail and not allow the proper water into the dishwasher and may need to be replaced. And, check the spray arm and pump cover for splits or leaks. Also make sure that the water is draining and is not accumulated in the dishwasher, if it is in dishwasher then check for clogged drain hoses and drain pump.

Low water fills are a very common trouble maker with today's dishwasher.

Please do rate this solution and revert for further assistance.

Could be a a couple different issues.. Not filling with enough water or food chopper broke or food chopper filter screen clogged.

Check water level:
Run the DW and wait for the main wash to start (water will fill. pause then complete fill) The water should be no more than 1/4 inch below the heating element. If not there..replace water inlet valve.

Inspect food chopper:
Remove lower spray arm and rear water supply tube to upper spray arm. Remove torx screws that secure the sump cover. Remove the rounded cover on the left side to expose the chopper assembly. Inspect for breakage of blockage. There may be an additional plastic screen to remove first.
