Dishwasher is on and connected to water, but no water coming in.


Hi

When the Dishwasher won't fill you'll need to check for the water inlet hose, the water inlet valve and the float switch assembly. When the water fills your dishwasher, a float rises along with it. As the float reaches a certain threshold level, it shuts off the flow of water, thereby preventing a leak. Sometimes the float can get stuck in the wrong position in your dishwasher, and it can prevent your dishwasher from filling. Sometimes it can happen due to float valve and on other occasions due to float switch. Inspect the water hose coming to the dishwasher for any blockages. If the hose is not clogged then check the water inlet valve for any clogs, if the water will not even fill for few seconds then certainly the water inlet valve is bad and should be replaced. You can also use a multimeter to check continuity on inlet valve. If you don't get any value on the multimeter then you'll need to replace the water inlet valve assembly. However, if the valve is fine then the float switch assembly should be replaced. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

Dishwsher doesn't get disher clean


Hi

If the water inlet valve is fine and it fills with water then the issue seems to be with the float switch assembly that is bad and should be replaced. Float assembly is found inside the dishwasher's tub, on the bottom. The water that fills the dishwasher lifts the float, and when it reaches a certain level, it acts as a trigger for the float switch. The float triggers the float switch to shut off, thereby shutting off the flow of water into the dishwasher. A defective switch may interfere with dishwasher's filling and/or draining ability. Use voltmeter to test the switch. Set the device to the ohms setting x 1. Take each probe and touch them to one switch terminal each. This should produce a reading of either zero or infinity. Continue to touch the probes to the terminals, and press down on the switch's button. The reading should change to the opposite extreme. If the switch fails either of these tests, you should replace it. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Washer drains at it fills up, so water level never gets to where it needs to be. This is in all cycles. Machine never get to a point where it starts running.


Your drain hose needs to have the "curved" part above the level of the basket top. Otherwise, water will continually run out (usually onto the floor).

Some models have a stand alone water pump that is turned on to drain the washer. The timer (during drain, spin, etc cycles) turns this pump on and off. If your hose is inserted into the stand pipe as it should be, then the water pump being turned on is likely the problem.

Since you aren't mentioning that water is all over your floor, I think that a loose / torn hose can be ruled out as well. You need another timer switch assembly.

DISHWASHER IS ONLY FILLING WITH A SMALL AMOUNT OF WATER


The water level detector pipe could be obstructed / blocked. This thin plastic pipe is at the bottom of the washer and as it fills to the correct level of water the pressure in the pipe activates a water level switch in the washer. Sometimes the air pressure pipe becomes blocked / obstructed or the contacts of the pressure switch become burnt. You can disconnect the pipe and blow through it and the pressure switch is normally factory set and does not need adjusting. Replace it if necessary.

Tempstar Door model keeps overfilling


The sensor is a plastic pipe (vacume) / and a ajustable switch. The rise in water causes the air pressure in the pipe to increase and at the set level this stops the water inlet valve. You could disconnect the pipe and blow into it slowly and should hear the switch click. Most faults are the plastic sensor pipe blocked / obstructed and or the switch terminals (inside switch) burnt. This means that the switch must be replaced and should be set for the correct water inlet.

Check to see how fast water is entering the dishwasher.
They work on a timed basis with a float switch being a safety.
You may want to check how the water gets into the dishwasher and  then see if there is plugging somewhere.
