Too little information. Could be a water pump valve not opening or the pump itself.

SOURCE: dishwasher does not fill with water

First (I know this sounds bad but it does happen)check to see the tap is turned on (I have had where the owner thinks the tap is on and asked if I am nuts turns out the cleaning lady switched it off) If so turn off the tap and remove the inlet hose from the machine,there should be a filter in the unit where the pipe screws on this is more than likely blocked if so clean and replace pipe etc check on the tap side sometimes there is one there aswell clean if dirty,if there is still no water then we need to go deeper,the pressure switch could be fualty or there may be water in the pressure tube wich will tell the timer that the machine is full etc,I would however suggest you check the above first if you do not come right let me know and we can then investigate further.

There are likely more pieces of glass in the impeller of the motor keeping it from turning. It will have to be disassembled and cleared.

SOURCE: Dishwasher makes a loud noise until I turn on the water in sink

You have too much water pressure it sounds like for the fill valve to operate properly. I am assuming it is chattering? How much water pressure do you have? If its too high an inexpensive regulator can be purchased at most plumbing supply stores to install in the DW supply line.

SOURCE: No water getting int the dishwasher

1. kink in supply hose.
2. fill solenoid has failed.
3. screen at water inlet has clogged with debris.

Check 1 and 3 first, easiest.

Have a portable dishwasher that is not getting any water into the machine-lines seem to be clear.When turned on machine makes a screeching sound but no water getting through.What is the...


If the lines are clear then the solenoid is not letting water in. It sounds like the pump is dry ( that noise). The water lines are removable so you could check that first. The solenoid is replaceable ( on the underneath side) on regular dishwashers. Yours might have a sheet of metal over the bottom because it rolls around. I'm sure you could replace that part, but it would be difficult if you have not replaced parts on appliances before. Not much in tools although some require star drive or similar. Hose clamps and probably one electrical quick connect. If you do try it, take the model number And the serial number to a good appliance parts store and ask. Also ask for an expanded view of the area that should give you the way to replace that part.
One more thing parts are not returnable so you must be sure this is what you want to do.
Hiring a repair person starts at 65-75 dollars just to come out, plus (triple cost on parts) plus labor time to do it. That part could be as little as 20 bucks.

Hello & Welcome to FixYa

The problem is with the impeller or the chopper assembly that is causing this screeching noise. You can take apart the bottom front access panel and clean the drain pump assembly completely and check for any broken parts inside that need replacement. If the problem returns then replacing the impeller/drain pump-motor assembly is recommended repair. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Screeching noise after water starts going in


Hi just read your posting.Now put the machine to a spin cycle and push start,Does the noise happen in this cycle? If the noise doesn't happen then try a cold water fill but turn the hot tap off first.If the noise still doesn't happen then try a hot water fill but turn the cold water off first. This noise sounds like one of your water valves is faulty.Please reply with additional information on the questions and I am sure we can rectify this fault.

Loud screeching noise coming from the unit.


A screeching or squealing noise usually comes from the fan motor. There may be an oil port and you can buy a small telescoping oil bottle at a super hardware store or an a/c supply house. Before putting in he oil, remember to TURN OFF THE POWER TO THE UNIT and only use a light squeeze on the bottle - over oiling will cause a mess inside the motor. It may be a sealed motor and no oil ports. In either case, budget for a new motor as if it's to the squealing stage, the bearings are already damaged and it's a just matter of time before before the motor bearings fail. If possible, get oil on the bearings ASAP - and use the proper lightweight oil for made for this application.

Mine is a FDB635RFS4 model - issue is loud screeching noise


i recently had the same problem of a loud screeching noise. my unit was installed new in 1999 and has worked well up to this point.

when i disassembled the tub water filter i found the filter was heavily clogged (it is supposed to be self cleaning), and i also found glass shards from a broken wine glass. i further disassembled the plastic housing under the filter ( held in place by three torx drive screws ) which covers the pump impeller and holds the lower spray arm. while i did not find any blockage in the pump area, and no abnormal sound when i turned the impeller by hand, i did find that one of the pump impeller vanes has a small chip which probably makes the impeller unbalanced resulting in more than normal vibration. i cleaned the water filter and reassembled the parts and the original screeching noise is now gone.

Dishwasher loud in beginning cycle and drains early


sounds like you have 2 problems however generally speaking (most makes) of dishwashers go into drain mode when there is a fault elsewhere, however is this set up properly, is the waste pipe end high enough to allow the water to actually fill up (only about 30cms of water aprox)so it doesn't flow straight though to the waste. the noise could just be an empty pump, it runs dry after a while, and makes a screeching noise eventually? check installation pictures to see if its set up right, you may have also a leak somewhere check all other connections and pipes
