    Ok several things need to add here.... First of all too many people with hands on the washer does not help.... washer was not working..... found out water was turned off under the sink.... then in the mean time wife had removed the float.... so when looking for "the float" I did not see anything moveable that even remotely resembled a float...... water was now on however! I found the float in the sink and replaced it in the receptacle and amazing the washer works just fine!

Connectingit hooking it up


The exact list of parts for a dishwasher hook-up would depend on the existing plumbing and electrical . There are three hook-ups needed; a hot water feed, typically from under the sink. A Tee is installed on the hot water line with a valve, and the hot water line to the dishwasher is connected to the valve. A drain line from the dishwasher is installed under the sink. It connects to the sink drain. The Electrical connection can be made using the appropriate electrical cord.
There are specific guidelines and considerations on how to connect the drain line under the sink, and what is required for the electrical hook-up. If you do a search on "how to install a dishwasher" you will be able to find extensive information.

Machine runs but doesn't allow water to come into machine


Don't know the history of your machine, sounds like possibly the hot water supply valve under your sink is turned off. To check this go under your kitchen sink and inspect water supply valves, (right side cold water) left side hot water valve feeds the machine. Vertical water line is for sink above, there should be a second water line coming off this valve that has its own on/off knob. Make sure this knob is turned on, (counterclockwise)if not sure turn it to the right (clockwise)till stops, then to the left till it stops. This allows hot water to enter dish machine. If valve is on and line is ok, there might be a kink in the line behind the dish machine or a restriction (clog) in the water line. May need to unplug machine and unsecure it to pull it out for inspection. Good luck,best regards.

I just got this used and would like to know do you hook it to hot water or cold when installing it?


Hello. Definitely hook it up to the hot water under the sink with a shutoff valve. Then when using it always run the water in the sink until it is hot before you start the dish washer.

Trying to reinstall a dishwasher that was removed-I know you hook the plastic line to the disposal, but where do you hoop up the water?


the water line should be conneted to the water valve on the dishwasher (underneath, usually on the left side), and to the hot water faucet connector at the wall under the sink.

Water not heating


your water should be preheated coming from the water heater itself. The Dishwasher should be hooked up to the hot side of the sink at the angle stop. So if you were to open the door beneath the sin you should see where the hot water anglestop/cut off valve it should have a line going to the dishwasher from that shut off valve. Another cause could be that the dishwasher only allows so much water into it at any one time so if your water heater is say in the garage and the dishwasher is across the house in the kitchen it takes a while to get the water from point a to point b by this time the dishwasher has already recieved the amount of water needed. To cure this try running the hot side of the faucet until you get hot water and then try your dishwasher and see if this doesn't do the trick.

Good luck on this

Dishwasher on no water


Is the water valve under the sink on? Any kinks in the hose? Check to see if the water valve solenoid coil is open (located under the cabinet front).

AEH Favorit 50730 dishwasher seems to work fine other than the water never gets hot. Is it easy to replace the heating element or whatever that could be faulty?


If this dishwasher is a residential dishwasher the water that is supplied to the unit is from the hot water side of the sink supply. The dishwasher does not heat the water it uses water from the water heater that is connected to the house. It sounds as if the dishwasher is hooked up to the cold water supply instead of the hot water supply. The heating element you see in the dishwasher is for drying purposes and not for heating water. I would check the hot water supply for your dishwasher to see if that could be the problem. Also remember unless you have a recirculating pump on the hot water there will be an amount of water in the pipe from the water heater and the dishwasher that has sat and cooled down over a period of time therefore when you turn on the dishwasher you will not get hot water immediately due to the distance the dishwasher is from the water heater. You will notice when you turn on the hot water to thew sink you do not get hot water right away you let it run for a minute before it gets hot since the dishwasher is connected to the same valve as your hot water to the sink it acts the same way.
Good luck on your repairs hope this helped.

My dishwasher doesn't seem to be getting water in hence dishes not being washed. motor is on. checkedunder sink . what does 'valve on' mean exactly? i don't see an on off valve. please help!


Follow the hot water fill pipe from where it connects to the dishwasher back to where it connects to the wall. (probably under the sink) Most of the time, you will find that pipe attaches to the same hot water (on/off) valve as the hot water side of the kitchen sink.

Confirm that valve is open (righty - tighty, lefty - loosy (open)) If the valve is open at the wall end then:

The next most common cause of no water entering the dishwasher is the solenoid valve on the dishwasher that is electronically opened when the dishwasher needs water to enter for wash or rinse. This valve is located just pass the connection where the fill pipe connects to the dishwasher and will have two wires connected to it.

Please post back here what you find or have more questions, OK?

Water into washer


Make sure you get water to the dishwasher. Check to see if the water shut-off valve (located under the sink) is open. If you get water to the dishwasher, but there is still no water inside during the fill cycle, the problem might be with a faulty water valve (located at the bottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, on either side), in which case replace the water valve.

I have to connect a 'Y' piece connector to my dishwasher as there is currently no cold water getting to it. How do i go about doing this?


If I'm not mistaken only hot water goes to the dishwasher. What you have is a valve with two outlets usually 1/4 or 3/8 one goes to supply side of sink faucet and other to the supply line of the dishwasher. This valve connects to the hot water supply line of the house. The stub outs should be close to the D/W. If you want to use cold water then you will have to connect this valve to the cold water supply and then connect one side to the dishwasher and the other to the the cold side of sink faucet. Also I believe that dishwashers need the water to be at a certain temperature +/- 150 degrees.
Home Depot/Lowes sell the valves fairly cheap. Hope this helps.
