The solenoid valve controlling the supply water is not opening. This could be caused by no power to the solenoid or a failed solenoid.

How do I replace the water pump


Not enough information, are you stating when you start the cycle no water enters the tub?
The normal operation at start the washer goes into drain first then starts the cycle.

Dishawasher floods


Two possible reasons come to my mind. First, and simplest, I've seen Dishwasher installations that did not use a air gap in the Dishwasher drain (usually a dome device mounted on the back of the kitchen sink or sometimes mounted in the wall just above the sink in older homes).When an air gap is not used, it is imperative that a high loop is formed in the dishwasher drain line, and tied up in that position (usually under the kitchen sink,as high as possible- the underside of the sink faucet usually works, or a screw into the bracing under the counter top to wrap a soft wire looped around the drain hose to hold it there permanently). If you do not use a air gap, or have a high loop in the dishwasher drain hose, then likely you are getting a back flow of dirty water into your dishwasher from the drain plumbing to which the dishwasher is connected (likely the garbage disposer or the tail from the sink basin.) So every time you either run the disposer (if you have one), or drain the sink basin, some of that contaminated, dirty water may be siphoning back into the dishwasher There are some exceptions, as some dishwashers including some whirlpool models, have a anti siphon ball device built into the drain pump housing.( You should also check your local plumbing code. They may require an air gap in your dishwasher drain line regardless of anything else.) Secondly,the water inlet valve may be sticking open, or not completely seating closed after the fill cycle. This could be indicated by a very gradual accumulation of clean, clear water in the bottom of the tub, to the point of completely filling the bottom of the tub to the point of overflow at the dam at the front bottom of the tub. The speed of overflow will be determined by how poorly the diaphragm inside the valve is seating. If you suspect this may be the problem, pull the rubber hose off the OUTLET end of the valve, with the machine in the OFF position or better yet UNPLUGGED (water and electricity do not mix, and can KILL you) ,and see that there is not a continuous flow or trickle of water. If there is any flow of water, in this scenario, then you have a bad inlet water valve, and the valve should be replaced rather than attempting to repair. Be sure to reconnect the rubber hose to the inlet valve before plugging the machine back in and attempting to run the machine, or you will have a high pressure flood, and likely electrical shorting under the machine which could likely ruin the machine.

No water


Two things to check. First see if anything is holding up the float inside the tub. Located on the bottom right if I remember correctly. I had a fork fall off the rack and do the exact same thing by getting lodged under the float. Second, if there was work done on the plumbing, some debrs may have gotten into the line and clogged things at the inlet valve. You may have water flowing through the inlet line, but maybe clogged at the valve. Need to take that off and check. While you are down there run the dishwasher through a cycle and test voltage at that valve. Also could be the valve or the control board.

Fdb1050rec1 frigidaire dishwasher door leak


I think you most likely have a basin Float water level sensor that is no working correctly, the door seal is not water proof, if the water level gets over the lip of the basin it will leak on the floor.

GE Dishwasher - poor cleaning


I believe there is a screen/filter on the water line before or at the water fill valve. If that gets plugged it can restrict the flow. The fill valve can also fail/get plugged and restrict the flow.
Also, dishwashers usually have a level sensor to tell when there is enough water to do the wash. It may be a float inside the tub that operates a mechanical switch or it may have a hose to a pressure sensor. Either type can get greasy/dirty/plugged and as a result cause improper water levels.
Check both the water supply filter/fill valve and the level sensor. One or both of those may be involved.

How to install a water line to a Samsung Refrigerator?


I have a slightly different refrigerator but the same problem. It says white line, but the white line is attached to the fridge on both ends and the blue line is not. Also the instructions do not actually look like the refrigerator so that is no help. No probelm installing a filter or the waterline to my water, but now I can't get it into the fridge.

Hello, Black rubbler like particles are being found in the washing basin of the machine and also in the discharge water... have you heard of this before? Thanks!!


Hello,

Sounds like some build up of soap and mildew over time between the inner and outer tub. Usually the case when we get this complaint.

Run some dishwasher magic through the washer. Works better than AFFRESH.

Good Luck!!

GE roll around dishwasher


check to see if water is in basin. If so remove with dry rag until dry. Then run. If water is in basin, float will trip to stop inflow (flood precaution)

Frigidare Ultra Quiet III Dishwasher won't drain


To properly drain and clear out any clogs in a dishwasher: 1.Take a wet/dry vacuum, remove the paper air filter (usually just a screw) from the inside of the vacuum body 2. Empty out the vacuum body prior to using it.  3. Then **** out all of the water from the inside basin/tub.  4. Before you turn off the vac, lift the hose high into the air and make sure all of the water is sucked into the vacuum to prevent any water still in the tube from making a mess.  5. Dump that water. This will provide you an opportunity to remove excess water before you get to work. 
Next, under the sink there you will see your drain, just above your drain you will see a black or transparent tube about 1" in diameter.  6. Unscrew the tube screw.  7. Get your vacuum hose and hold it near the tube. When you take off the tube, there may be, though likely not, some excess water in the tube. **** this up if needed.  8. Put the vac hose onto the tube and make an air tight seal with your hand over the hose and tube.  9. Turn on the vacuum and such out any clogs.  10. Turn on your dish washer and let it run for a minute or two to get water back into the tub.  11. Open the door, there should be about 1-2" of water in the tub.  12. Hit the cancel button and let the water pump out of your tub, be sure to hold the vacuum hose over the tube and **** out all the water with the asistance of your dishwashers pump.  13. Repeat steps 8-12 2-3 times. You should notice water will no longer remain in the tube when you fill it up, & press the cancel button because the machine will pump everything out for you. Once you have done this and the water pumps out without a problem you have fixed your clog. 
14. Reattach the tube to the drain using the tube screw. 15. Dump the water from the vacuum down the drain. 17. Clean up and put your vacuum away. 16. Put the $95 into your savings account because you likely just fixed your clog in under 45 min. from start to finish. 
I hope this helps!

No hot water when washing dishes


sounds like it was hooked up to a coldwater line instead of a hot and your heating element in the dishwasher went bad from overload or your pc board went bad but i would check to see if it is hooked up to hot water line first..
