HI, if you are getting water with the power to the d/w off, you will need to change the inlet valve. the valve is locate uner the d/w in the front left corner.
You should have a shot off valve under the sink or in the basement (if applies).
Sound like the valve has gone bad and is stuck open.
I hope this helps you. If I can assist you further with part # or anything else, please leet me know.

Thanks
Vic

Hi

If the water doesn't drain from your dishwasher, check these:
Drain line/air gap A clog in the drain line or air gap (if there is one) is the usual reason that a dishwasher won't drain. Often the problem is at the point where the drain line attaches to the garbage disposer or household drain line. If you remove this line, you can clear any debris from the hose or hose connection. Be sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher again.

Pump Your dishwasher pump ejects the water. The pump is usually mounted directly to the motor, then attached to the bottom of the dishwasher. You can reach the pump from inside the dishwasher, but first you need to remove the lower rack, the spray arm, and the spray arm support.

Look for an impeller--a round plastic fan blade-type of device that spins around. This is the wash impeller, which forces the water through the spray arm. Beneath the wash impeller is the drain impeller, which is similar in size and shape to the wash impeller. The drain impeller pushes the water toward the drain port. These components make up the pump. If any of the pump components are defective, you need to replace them.

Drain valve and/or solenoid Many dishwashers use a drain valve with an electric solenoid. When electricity flows to the solenoid, the valve opens and diverts the water to the drain. Sometimes the solenoid, or the diverting lever, sticks and prevents the dishwasher from draining or filling properly. Try to free up the solenoid to lubricate the lever. Otherwise, you may have to replace the solenoid or pump assembly. With these systems, the motor always rotates in one direction. When it's energized, the drain valve diverts the water.

Other dishwashers simply reverse the direction of the motor to drain the dishwasher. These units don't have a drain valve. Instead, there's a drain hose connected directly to the pump housing.

Belt One brand of dishwasher uses a belt to drive the pump. If this belt is broken or has fallen off, replace it.

Motor If the motor isn't turning or working, the unit won't drain. First check to be sure you have power to the dishwasher. If not, see the section "It doesn't work at all." If the motor hums but doesn't turn, it may need to be replaced.

Some dishwashers are susceptible to getting stuck if you don't run them regularly. If you haven't run the dishwasher for more than a week, you may need to manually spin the motor to free it up. If the motor is defective, you need to replace it. Dishwasher motors can't be serviced.

Timer Part of what the timer does is control the motor and drain valve. If the timer doesn't work properly, the water may not drain and you need to replace the timer. This problem is uncommon.

Been setting in storage a year when all hooked up it starts up just fine then quits and sets there with the timer running but wont wash or spin or nothing wont fill with water


When you mention that it starts up fine. Do you mean that the machine initially takes in water, but then nothing after that. Or does it simply power on, but no water comes into the machine.

If no water comes in initially, then it is most likely your inlet valve.

If water comes in but no motor action, then it could be a raft of things. Disconnect the power source. Open the top hatch and the back panel. Make sure the drive belt has not come off during transport. Also check to see if no wiring connection has come loose. NOTE: Make sure the machine is off and disconnected from the power plug.

If you can't spot anything loose then it is best to get a service technician to diagnose the problem.

Washer wont fill up, keeps draining


If the cycle does not stop draining that is usually because of a faulty membrane switch that controls the water level in your appliance.
The faulty sensor cause the machine to think that there is still water inside, even when water has drained completely.

Washer fills up fine but doesn't start to wash...


if it doesn't agitate, spin, or even drain, then you most likely have a belt that is off. Of course, now that you have a washer full of water, it is going to be diffficult to tilt back and change the belt, so you might want to get a shop vac and **** the water out through the drain hose first.

With most of the water out, you should be able to tilt the machine back and see what went wrong. I believe on Frigidares the belt is underneath.

MY WASHER FILLED UP WITH WATER, BUT THEN IT JUST QUIT WORKING.


I believe it is your lid switch. I have replaced 3 this week. If you get me the model number i can tell you for sure. Another thing that caused this is the motor to go bad. Do you smell a burning smell when it is trying to run after the fill up? If not get me the model number and i will get you the part number for the lid switch.

Washer does not fill at all


Have you checked the filter just inside the water hoses. You just turn off the water and unfastenent he hoses from the machine and you will find a little filter. It may be clogged with lint, sand, etc.
