Hi,

Sounds like you may have a food particle or something along those lines caught in your pump. Alot of dishwashers run the pump in one direction to wash and the opposite to drain. Try advancing the timer to a drain part and see if it dislodges whats in your pump. if this doesn't work, you may need a repair person.

OR

Indesit list that as an inlet valve failure.
You'll need a multimeter to check the valve, test it to see if the coil is open circuit, if it is, replace the valve.
Is the water turned on? Check the supply to the valve.
Check the wiring in the door hasn't snapped.
Finally check the pcb in the door to see if it's burnt or damaged.

OR

what you are hearing is probably the drain pump solenoid. At start the drain pump will get in to get rid of any water and purge the system. It's hard to tell without being there. I would call for service, it won't cost anything. Have the tech check the wash and drain pump assy

Thank You

Dishwasher will not start Is the door open or unlatched?
Make sure the door is completely closed and latched. On models with a dual-digit display, the control displays "- -" during a cycle if it believes the door is not latched. Check for obstructions (spoons, etc), interfering with the door operation. A lower dish rack that is installed backward will also cause incomplete door closure.

Does your dishwasher have a rotary timer knob? (Some Models)
The cycle selection must match the position of the timer knob. Turn the timer knob to the beginning of the preferred cycle. The timer knob should click when you reach the start of the cycle.

Is the control lock option activated?
Press and hold the Heated Dry option (button with lock icon) for three to five seconds and the light should turn off. Instructions are also placed on the label on top of the inner door to unlock the controls.

Opening the door or interrupting the power can stop the cycle. Close the door and press Start/Resume. If the Start/Resume indicator flashes three times when you press Start/Resume, the dishwasher is waiting for you to open the door after the last cycle. Open and close the door, and then press Start/Resume.

Quiet partner 1 will not drain or run


It sounds like it ain't getting any power since all your hearing is the clicking from the timer. If it does have power I would take the front panel off and see if everything looks ok and make sure there ain't any loose wires. But start with checking the wires coming in for power. Hope this helps.

Water is not coming into my Maytag dishwasher.


Hi,
Is the door open or unlatched?Make sure the door is completely closed and latched. On models with a dual-digit display, the control displays "- -" during a cycle if the door is not latched. Check for obstructions (spoons or utensils), that may be interfering with the door operation. A lower dish rack that is installed backward will also cause incomplete door closure. The lights for cycles selected will flash if the door is opened while running a cycle.
Is there power to the dishwasher?Check your household electrical box to see if a fuse has blown or if the circuit breaker has tripped. If the unit has a plug-in power cord, make sure it is plugged in.
Does your dishwasher have a rotary timer knob?The cycle selection must match the position of the timer knob. Turn the timer knob to the beginning of the preferred cycle. The timer knob should click when you reach the start of the cycle.
Is the control lock option activated?
The indicator light next to the lock graphic will illuminate when the controls are locked. Press and hold the Heated Dry option (button with lock icon) for three seconds and the light should turn off. Instructions are also placed on the label on top of the inner door to unlock the controls.
Is the delay start option activated?To cancel the delay and cycle, press Start/Cancel twice.
Is the water shutoff valve turned on?Make sure that the water shutoff valve is turned on.

A few things to check:
- is the timer running? The first thing the timer does is open the water valve solenoid. You should hear a click immediately before the water flows through the pipe. If you don't hear this click, then either the dishwasher has no power (check your circuit breaker), the timer is faulty, or the solenoid is faulty.
- is the water turned on? Obvious question, but I have to ask.
- is the hose kinked somewhere?

You didn't mention if the rest of the functions work after the fill function. If so, it must be either the solenoid or a water delivery problem. If not, perhaps the dishwasher has no power, or else it is probably the timer.
