There are two possible reasons for the situation as you describe it: 1. Water-inlet valve The water-inlet valve lets water enter the machine. If this valve is defective, you need to completely replace it. It's usually located behind the lower access panel on the left or right side. It's the device with the main water line (usually copper) from the house, a rubber tube to the dishwasher, and two wires attached to it.
2. Float switch The float switch is a small electrical switch that's located right below the dishwasher "floor." Above the switch, on the inside of the dishwasher, is a plastic cylinder that floats up as water fills the dishwasher. If this switch is defective, or if the plastic float gets caught or trapped in the raised position, the water can't enter the dishwasher. If the float switch is defective, you need to replace it.

If you are mechanically inclined you can repair either of these but if you are not you will have to hire it done. Now that you know it is one of two problems you can tell the repairman ahead of time and get a price on the repair. Then shop around for the best price.

GE dishwasher model gdf570ssf0ss will not fill.


Check to make sure there isn't something holding the flood switch up. It is a hat shaped tube in the bottom of the dishwasher that can be blocked up by soap an kept in the upright position. If it moves freely check to make sure your water valve has stopped working or has a block screen.

What does error code 01 mean on my bosch silence plus 42 dishwasher mean?


The 01 error code means that the incoming water isn't coming fast enough. This could be a problem with the water pressure in the building, the fill valve or the water flow meter. Sometimes, this can be caused by something blocking the float from moving freely inside the dishwasher tub.

First check that you have sufficient water pressure in the house and that the shut-off valve is fully open. (If you have low water pressure, find out what is causing the issue.) Make sure that the incoming water pipe/hose isn't crimped or leaking. Next, flip your circuit breaker to off (or unplug the unit) to reset the dishwasher. Next you need to check that the fill valve is opening and closing properly; check that the wiring is good as well. If that is fine, then the problem is the flow meter or the circuit board that reads the sensors from the fill valve and flow meter.

I hope this helps.

How come my dishwasher won't start?


In the bottom of dishwasher there is a float, check it and see if it is stuck. It is a common thing to have happen. The float/sensor maybe telling the board that you have water therefore it want allow it to fill. Start there.

Dishwasher over fills


Contact a service professional to diagnose the fill valve and sensor. Also the timer might need to be checked for it is not advancing to the next step where it should be.

Dishwasher fills with water. then hums but dosen't clean


Sounds like water-level sensor is ok as it stops filling then 'hums'. I'd (carefully) check the connections to the connections between the level-sensor and the wash motor start relay. Could be motor is bad or something is causing it to become 'jammed'. Before you begin opening the appliance, I'd attempt to vacuum out the water or try putting the control in the last position to cause it to try to pump out the water.

Hobart lx30 E3 error


Error Code E3 relates to a problem with the fill. Specifically that the water level has not been recognized at the middle water sensor. This can be caused by a problem with the drain system as you describe, or by low water pressure to the machine (should be 15-25psi flow), or bad wire connection to this middle sensor.
Check for proper water pressure first (should be a gauge on the machine) during the fill. Then check / repair drain as needed. These will probably eliminate the problem

Wash cycle starts up temporarily during initial fill


Joe, this is normal. Your model has a soil sensor and the updated board has a soil purge. So it will fill, purge the sensor and resume. Catriver..post back.
