Question about Magic Chef 24 in. DU2500 Built-in Dishwasher
Was away for 3 weeks and when back I tried to run the dishwasher and although it started up when activated it was evident no water was coming in. It's a fairly old machine (5 years or so) but isn't suffering from too much wear and tear. Something is stopping the water coming through though not sure what. Please, any ideas that might solve this would save me time and money!
Thanks in advance.

SOURCE: dishwasher won't drain water
The bubbles created by the dish soap could cause poor draining, but I would think it would just cause more of a bubble problem than a draining problem...
Either way, some people would say to throw a cup of vinegar into the wash area, but I prefer to just use water.
Disconnect the drain line from the machine at the sink and route it into a 5 gallon bucket. Drain and fill the machine several times to clear the bubbles out. This will also give you the opportunity to see if the drain problem you state is a machine problem or a drain problem.
Hope this helps,

SOURCE: DIshwasher doesn't drain or fill
First off.. unplug power and then reapply power to it for a little while to see if a power reset will put it back in the proper sequence.. next, check inside the base for a drain inlet and a filter/screen and clean anything you see out of it.. Then try cycling it without dishes to see if it will run thru a cycle and drain properly.. Its ok to add a cup or two of white vinegar during the wash process to remove byproducts of the wash from the inner components.. Make sure the drain hose is not clogged or kinked up.. Try these things and get back to me if it is still misbehaving..

Ok there are several problems this can be caused from...
1. there is usually a float device (I'm not sure about this model) that floats up and turns the water flow off when an appropriate amount of water is injected into the DW...sometimes these get gummed up with soap and gunk...look in the DW and see if such a device is present (usually front right side) if so you should be able to lift it and inspect it for gunk...if no gunk is present push the float up and down and listen for a "clicking" noise and make sure the float returns to its up position (spring loaded) and after you have evacuated the water turn the DW on and start to fill see if the water shuts off automatically after it has filled (this is most likely your problem).....
2. Another problem is that often if dishes are not rinsed and lots of food has accumulated around the bottom of the DW..it can obstruct water from draining and since the drain cycle is on a timer...all the water will not drain out and during the next cycle...(and usually only if the float is not functioning) it will overflow. So the odds are you are going to have a float problem.
3. Also in my 35 years of appliance repair I have seen maybe 2 DW drain lines clogged and usually it is right where they attach to the washer...due to the aforementioned food accumulation. Turn the washing machine timer through its cycle from wash to rinse or whatever is necessary to get it to drain...you should here a door or valve click open and water running into the garbage disposal side of the sink...if this is the case the drain line is good.
Hope this helps...get back to me if not....The Fang
