It has been my experience that the humming that you are hearing is from the electric coil and shut off plunger to the incoming water line. Some of these are rebuild-able. Some of them are not. I would suggest to you that you look up your model and serial number along with the make of this model. Pull the unit out from the cupboard and follow the hot water line into the dishwasher. You should find a plastic valve with two electrical wires hanging out of it. Most likely hooked on with spade clips/terminals. (Quick disconnecting electric contacts.) Once you locate this you will know what you need to replace. Remove the broken part and take it into your local parts store or look for the part on line. The model and serial number along with the make of the unit will go a long way in helping you find the part you need. The humming sound also tells me that the transformer is most likely still in operating condition. So this too points directly to this same part. Good luck and good hunting.

SOURCE: dishwasher won't run cycle and no water is entering machine

This sounds all to familiar. I had this problem once and it was valve that was closed and would not open. The cause was lime in the water that built up over time. This was an unnecessary expense. Is the water in your area generally hard? Once I replaced the valve, it took care of it.

SOURCE: no water entering machine.

It may be that the tray underneath the machine is full of water and this appears to activate the anti flood device and shuts off the water supply. If you remove the panel under the door you should be able to check. There are 2 screws to the side and 2 to the top of the small panel. I am uncertain where the water came from on my machine but this appears to have solved my problem.

I think I had a similar problem to this. It seems like it was starting a cycle but then it just stalled and made a buzzing noise and it did not drain properly. I opened the bottom of the dishwasher where the draining pump was located. take off the plastic cover and I found bits of broken plates were jamming the fins on the pump... Try this and see how it goes.. Hope it was of some asistance.

Dishwasher stops working a few minutes after being started


Make sure the water is turned on to the unit first--next, is there water entering the tub? Check the float switch--the round, plastic, "flying saucer" shaped object at the bottom of the tub. Gently lift up on it and carefully listen for a very soft "click" sound. That is the tiny switch underneath working. If something gets trapped under the float switch, the washer won't fill with water. Next, if water is indeed in the tub, did you hear the motor pump running? If it runs and then stops, there might be a problem with the control board--check to see if the drain pump works properly--cancel the cycle and listen for the drain pump turning on and draining out all the water. On almost all dishwashers, at the start of a cycle, the drain pump will turn on briefly to pump out any standing water left in the motor base(you can't see the water but it's there) so it doesn't get sprayed onto your dishes. Then, fresh, hot water enters the tub, when the water level reaches the proper level, the float switch rises, tells the computer enough water is present, then starts the main pump. If the water is not being drained out, try to listen for the drain motor humming. If it is running but not draining, it is probably jammed with food or other debris and must be cleared. If the water is turned on but no water is entering the tub, check the inlet water valve underneath the washer--the water line is connected directly to it. It is electrical and operates on 120v. You will need to carefully disconnect the connector from the valve, activate a cycle, and using a voltage meter, check to see if 120 volts is present. If it is there and no water is entering, most likely the valve is bad. If there is no voltage at the valve, either a wire is broken or the main board is defective.

Dishwasher is not washing


Possibly inlet hose line is blocked with crud from your water source. Please confirm by turning off water under sink, disconnecting hose under dishwasher and, WITH HOSE IN AN OLD MILK BOTTLE, slowly turn on water under sink to verify water flow. If ok, water inlet selenoid is blocked and needs to cleared (with compressed air). Alternatively, input seleniod is burned out and needs to be replaced.

I have frigidaire dishwasher,starts cycle,can hear water entering dishwasher,checked level of water,does not get to 1",machine starts washing by the sound of motor, but dishes are not clean,water drains...


Depending on your dishwasher, it fills either by a timer or by a water probe or float. I will assume its a timer as a probe or float wouldnt exhibit this behaviour. I would say you have a restriction in your water supply line. Check your valves, any screen filter in the water line for sand/scale/silicate/etc, pressure regulator if applicable. Another posibility is a poor magnet in your fill valve.

Water is turned on but will not cycle through washer


check the float inside the tub. make sure that it is all the way down or no water will enter the dishwasher. also when you turn it on do you hear a humming? if yes then it is your inlet valve.

Will not run groaning no water entering machine


Could be a bad water inlet valve or overflow float switch stuck or debris caught under float preventing it from closing the float switch. It could also be a bad timer.

If the noise you hear is a humming sound, it is a seized motor.
Hope this helps.

No water going to feed machine


There's no hot water Some washing machines allow hot water to enter only during certain cycles. Others intermittently allow hot and cold to enter, to temper the temperature of the water. Consult your owner's manual if you are unsure about whether the machine is acting abnormally.

If you're sure the machine isn't working the way it used to--or should--try these tests:

  • Is the hot water turned on? If not, turn it on.


  • Is the washer getting cold water but no hot water? If so, check to see if the control panel settings are correct.


  • Is there hot water coming through the proper hose? If not, check to see if the screen inside the water-inlet valve is clean. (The water-inlet valve is the device on the washing machine that the fill hoses are attached to.) If it's clean, you probably have a defective water-inlet valve. If so, completely replace it.

There's no water at allIf there's no water at all, make these checks:

  • Is there water getting to the machine?


  • Is the water-volume selector switch set properly and are the control panel buttons pressed in all the way?


  • If you have a Maytag® washer, is the fuse (if there is one) in the control panel at the lid-switch bracket blown?


  • Is there a faint buzzing or humming noise coming from the water-inlet valve? (The water-inlet valve is the device on the washing machine that the fill hoses are attached to.) If you can't hear anything, the water-inlet valve may not be getting any power. If you can hear some noise and there's water present, you may need to completely replace the water-inlet valve.
