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.

Seems like machine does not get water although water is available.When you turn on machine you hear something but no water I think


If after 3 to 5 minutes of starting the cycle you don't have water in the dishwasher bottom you have a problem with the fill cycle. Usually the inlet valve is bad. It is the plastic part with 2 wires going to it that the house water line hooks up to. Make sure someone didn't accidentally
turn off the house water valve to the dishwasher,

Water won't go down drain.


It appears that you have a drain pipe problem. Check that the hose is not restricted ( kinks etc) Get a good drain cleaner that you can use in you machine and clear the gunk out of the hose. Contact simpson dealer for a compatible product to do the job as some drain cleaners react with the steel and hoses.

Connecting dishwasher hose


Try soaking the hose in a bucket of hot water for a few minutes ,then twist it anti-clock wise so you have enough turns to screw it onto the water hook up.

Water not entering dishwasher


First check to see if water is getting TO the dishwasher.
Probably check the under-sink connection and see if there is water flow.
If there is, let's look for a problem with your water-shut-off valve.
This an electric solenoid, usually in the back or bottom of the machine, and it has the hose from under the sink hooked to it.
From it, there is usually a smaller hose going up to the dishwasher, most of them I have seen were black.
This solenoid should have a couple of wires attached to it, and is about the size of half your fist.
Sometimes they are blue in color.
These replaceable parts are usually good for about 7 years or so.
Be blessed.

Fagor F1-48W dishwasher won't fill


this must be a water flow problem to machine , id look real carefull at valves under sink or under floor of machine to see that there open and there are no kinks in hose connecting to it , other than that the one only other reason that it would not add water is that it thinks there's water in it already

Hot water won't run into washer


G'day. The hoses from your laundry taps hook up to your machine onto what are called solenoids. These are like electrical taps. The machine decides when to turn these on and off and in what order via the timer and depending on what modes are selected. Generally there is a hot and cold solenoid. If you have both hot and cold hooked up to your machine, you can simply swap these hoses around (put the hot tape on the cold solenoid and vis-versa) Then when you select cold, you'll actually be getting hot. Some new machines heat water internally like dishwashers, and they only have one solenoid. Again if you put the hot tape only on, you will get hot water with cold selected. In both solutions you are losing the option for cold or hot cycles with a click of a button - now you must swop hoses...

THE UPPER TRY DOES NOT GET CLEAN, THE SPRAY ARM ON THE BOTTOM OF THE UPPER TRY AND THE SPRAYER AT THE TOP DO NOT TURN?THE WATER THAT COME SOUT AT THE BOTTOM IS WEAK ? WHY?


It could be that your dishwasher is not getting enough water. Let the water fill the dishwasher, set the spray arms in the same direction. Add a large pot of hot water and run the dishwasher. Open the door and check to see if the spray arms have moved. If they have moved, replace the water inlet valve.
Remove the 4 screws holding the lower kick panel. Remove kick panel. Locate the water inlet valve. This is the electrical valve where the water pipe hooks into the dishwasher. Shut off the water to the Dishwasher and electrical to the dishwasher. Disconect the 2 wire plug at the water inlet valve. Disconect the water supply to the dishwasher at the valve and disconect the rubber hose attached to the valve. Install new valve and test machine.
I hope this helps.

Water is leaking into the dishwasher when it was not on. The water is really dirty and fills over time. How do I make it stop? It is not on automatic or on at all.


Hi, The water is dirty, do you think it is water draing back into the d/w from the sink? You need to raise the dishwasher drain hose that hooks up to the sink. Make sure the highest point of the drain hose is over the connection where the drain hose hooks to.
If it was fresh water filling the dishwasher, the water would be clean.
Please let me know if this helps you at all or if I can assist you further.

Thanks

Re dishwasher unit / sgs46m78au. water pipe/hose/ connections


The water connection is the smaller of the two and generally near the front of the machine, usually a threaded fitting on a electric solenoid will need a pipe to compression 90 fitting if its not already installed, it needs to be hooked to the hot water and that can be found on the left side going up to the sink faucet to be sure run some hot water and the side that gets warm is the correct one, you will need to turn off the water and install a T to connect the dishwasher if an unused shut off is not already there for the dishwasher. The drain line takes a hose and clamp and will hook into your drain iether through a dishwaser t or the disposal if you have one has a connection for it.
