Re: NO Water

Check the float under the lower rack. It should move up and down freely and you should hear a click when moving it. This operates a switch that turns the power to the water valve off if it gets to full. If it sticks in raised position or has gotten out of place where it rests on switch under the dishwasher, the valve will not let water in.

Water sounds like its comming to dishwasher after awhile dial turns(timer) disher wsher goes in to dishcharge pumping out water but inside of dish washer seems dry like no wash cycle took place

Look inside the dishwasher for large plastic mushroom-shaped thing in the bottom. This is a float. Sometimes a knife or fork or something else gets in the bottom of the dishwasher and won't let the float go down. When the float is up like this, the dishwasher thinks that it is already full of water, so no water pumps in.
If this is the case, simply remove whatever is blocking the float from going down, and it will work again.

My bosh exxcel disher dose dot fill


Thanks for using FixYa. To start with check the water inlet valve which is located behind the lower access panel on the left or right side of the Dishwasher. If the water inlet valve is bad you have to replace it, also check the main water line for clogs/obstructions. If still the issue is not resolved then it’s a bad float switch and needs to be replaced. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

Disher washer not getting any water??

Hi Harris,
Without a model number, I can't be 100% certain... but it sounds like the flood/safety float is stuck in the ""flood" position. It works by rising and falling with the water level in the tub. If there's too much water, the float will trip a switch and kill power to the inlet valve.
Open the door and remove the lower rack. You should see it right there in front inside the tub. Just lift it and drop it several times to clear it. (It's gotta be all the way down for water to get to the dishwasher)
Now try the dishwasher. Did it get water? If so, please rate this solution. If not write back and we'll go a little deeper.

Dishwashwer not cleaning properly

You can try one of the cleaners sold for this purpose like glisten, dishwasher magic or jetdry dishwasher cleaner. It may not be getting enough water due to the fill valve clogging up. You can check this by small amounts of water slowly with a cup in the wash cycle and quickly opening the door to see if the upper sprayarm is turning. If more water helps you need to replace the valve.
