Call a plumber to check your water pipe or you could twist the tap cap back and fort. Runs the dishwasher, if no water still. change FILL VALVE this is an electro-mechanical device that opens a valve to allow water to flow.
May also be called a WATER VALVE or WATER FILL VALVE.
If this does not solve the problem , you need to change the control board.

Does sugestion solve your problem? let me know.

Dishwasher is giving E1 which according to the manual is water sorce is off. We recently had turned the water off for bathroom repairs but the water has been turned back on, we have disconnected the pipes...


This is common, there may be a flood protection device that tripped in the line or sediment got into the system when the water was turned back on.

First turn the water off to the dishwasher. Take the hose or pipe off at the connection under the dishwasher, put a pan or towels under that open pipe. Slowly turn the water on and flush that line until clear. If no water comes out then you will need to do this but further back 'upstream'.

Once water comes clear, turn the valve off again reconnect the pipe/hose to the dishwasher and very slowly open the valve. If the water does not enter now you have sediment in the water inlet valve on the dishwasher itself and that valve will need replaced.

Inherited diplomat dishwasher with my house

Today's dishwashers use less water and less electricity so the manufacturers have had to increase wash times to get good results. One hour is about normal for the "eco" cycle since it's always "sensing" the water turbidity (soil in the wash water) and water temperature, and making adjustments as necessary.
Your shortest wash cycle would be "delicate" but it might not give you the best results.

Hi jamesward,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your problem is: Your dishwasher turns on and you can hear the motor but there doesnt seem to be any water going in

This may sound stupid but first make sure no one turned the water off to the d/w. If OK then you likely have a clogged or failed solanoid valve. The d/w must be removed for replacement. I don't recomend this for the average homeowner. You might consider utilizing our Repair Directory to find a repairman.
