Question about Danby DDW1805W Designer Series Free-Standing Dishwasher

1 Answer

Water not flowing into Danby 18"

My danby 18" portable dishwasher will not run. the power is working, the attachment seems to be latching to my sink, but the water does not seem to be entering the machine.

It worked yesterday (this is the second time we are using it, or trying to use it). When I stop and examine the hose that is supposed to deliver water from the faucet to the machine, it appears to be filled with water. BUT, it clearly is not "delivering" water to the machine, because when I feel the hose, it does not warm up, even though I only have the warm water turned on.

The door for my Danby appears to be shutting properly, and the power lights and everything are on. I can even hear the "engine" running. My water pressure is not spectacular, but it worked fine yesterday. None of the cycles work. Neither quick nor super settings work.

    Same exact thing has happened to me twice...the first time, I called in a warrantee repair, and the service guy told me it was the pressure switch. I asked him to show me how to flip it myself, but he wouldn't.


    So now that it's happened again, I find myself needing another appointment. I'd rather just know where the pressure switch is! Help us, O Wise Internet!

Okay, this might seem crazy, but it worked. I spent the last 2 days trying to contact Danby customer service to no avail, so I came back here to look for solutions. Found two:
(1) Someone said to open the little rubber cover under the front right of the machine...I couldn't find such a cover.
(2) Someone said to pull off the front plastic panel...mine doesn't seem to be removeable.
So! I turned my Danby DDW1805 upside-down (!) to see if I could locate the aforementioned rubber cover, and a bunch of water drained out of the machine. This is what both solutions above said I wanted to happen, so I flipped it back right-side up and hooked it back onto my faucet.
Golden. Works perfectly again.

first make sure the line is on under the sink the next thing that you would check is that you have water flowing to the water valve after you check that you do have water flowing to the valve you would then assure on the plug in connection that plugs into the solenoid on top of the top that there is power going to the valve when the unit is pressed to turn on if there is power going to the valve then the valve would be at fault and have to be replaced if you have any further questions message me back and please remember to rank how this opinion has helped it allows me to continue helping others in similar situations in the future Thanks again Rick

I couldn't find it either for a long time:

1) Pull out the bottom rack as if you were putting dishes there
2) Look at the bottom of the dishwasher and there will be a white circle (near the upper left side) where you can add the water softener.

I didn't use any for a while and the dishwasher worked great so I'm not sure why you can't run it.

Danby portable dishwasher filter stuck


If it says just pull up then you do just that, it is likely rusted on.
