The problem is the timer unit. It is defective and needs to be replaced.

Sorry to read about your problem.
Their is a 60% chance that your cold water inlet valve is stuck. 30% that you water leval sensor is defective.
I suggest you contact a local service company to repair your problem, this should be 1 hour or less service call.

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.

Bosch she45mo6uc/52. came home today and is has a loud hum. looks like it never got water in. the dry soap is just laying inside.


The humming noise is either from the pump motor or the water inlet solenoid. One of them is stuck. Take the mopboard plate off the front of the dishwasher and look for the solenoid. It will be a cylinder with two wires attached stuck onto a box in the water line. Start the dishwasher and touch the solenoid with a finger (naturally not the electrical terminals). If you feel it vibrating in time with the hum but do not hear the water running in, the valve is stuck closed. In this case the solenoid may rapidly get hot; that's why you just touch it with a fingertip.

If water comes in and the big motor in the middle starts humming as soon as the fill is complete, then the pump is jammed or the motor bearings are frozen. You'll have to disassemble the pump (from inside the tub) to see what's going on. You should be able to freely rotate the pump impeller and the motor shaft by hand (this is inside the pump; don't confuse it with spray arm, which is spun by reaction from the water spraying out rather than a mechanical connection to the pump motor).

Another possibility is that the water fill level switch is hung up and signaling a complete water fill when the unit is still dry. If this is the case, when you start the dishwasher you may hear the water solenoid briefly, then the pump will start running immediately. Since it has no water, it will just spin at full motor speed. A quick test for this is to pour about a gallon of water into the dishwasher, then close the door and let it run. If it runs normally until it gets to the rinse cycle, then it's either the level switch or the solenoid valve. (Be sure it isn't a pump problem first or you'll have to get the water out while you can work on it!)

The dishwasher continues to drain and the timer does not move


Sounds like the timer needs to be replaced, especially if the tub is empty of water, and the timer will not advance no matter how long you leave it there.

Dishwasher problems


The washer may be attempting to run dry. Many times on these washers, a person may open the washer and then go to another load. The washer gets stuck with a dry pump until the timer tells water fill valve to open. Easy test. Start on regular cycle ,slowly advance the timer. it will click until you here the fill start and water will fill until.....

Whirpool diswasher DU929PFGG2 wont draw water


The pump may be clogged or the motor start capacitor may be bad or the fill switch may be stuck or the timer may be bad. Fill the dishwasher by hand to just below the door level and close it then see if it will run. If it then runs correctly the problem may be the fill switch. If not, it could be the motor, the cap, or the timer

Washer will not start up


check the manual. it sounds like a warning that would be in the troubleshooting section at the back.
usually the motor comes on to discharge any remaining water that could have been left in the bottom, then it fills. if it never gets to fill, then the problem is likely the pump motor unit. especially if you hear it try to run, but then it stops. it could be the fill valve too. if it runs to drain and then trys to fill but the valve does not open, it will not run.
it could also be a timer or capacitor.
good luck

Dishwasher Does Not Cycle


IA, these GE pumps have a habit of sticking if the unit hasn't been run for a while. First you want to verify that the motor is in fact getting power, this will eliminate the timer. You can use a meter on the quik connect from the motor while in the wash cycle. If the motor is getting power, see if the pump is stuck by turning the motor vanes (Do this with the power off). If it's hard to turn and then frees up than this was more than likley your problem. You remove the bottom toe panel and will be able to check this out without removing the dishwasher.
