If I'm not mistaken, these dishwashers are built by Asko for Viking. If thats the case then you probably have a bad circulation pump. Under Asko's warranty (not sure if Viking is the same) these pumps are covered parts and labor for 3 years from installation date, and 5 years for the part only. The pump is accesed from the back of the machine,so you have to pull out the dishwasher. Then you remove the lower plate in the rear and the motor at the very back center is the pump. You remove it by turning it about a 1/4 turn either clockwise or counter clockwise, depending on the style, then place the new one in and turn it to lock it in place, being careful that the sealing oring stays in place or youll get a leak. The part will probably cost you around $150 unless viking marks theirs up more than Asko. Good Luck!

SOURCE: water will not fill into dishwasher

hi, it could be the inlet valve. This is usually what the hose fits to on the outside of the machine, and on the inside is the valve. MAKE SURE THE POWER IS OFF BEFORE you take the wires off the valve, then check for a reading on a ohms meter.ACROSS THE TWO TAGS, If no reading on the meter, the valve is gone. Regards, Tom.

Step1
Inspect the door gasket. As it ages, the gasket can crack or become hard, preventing it from sealing completely. 
Step
2
If the gasket appears solid, adjust the door latch so the door seals tightly. Loosen the screw that holds the door latch to the cabinet. Push the latch in slightly and retighten the screw. Test the door and readjust the latch if necessary. 
Step
3
Replace the gasket if water continues to leak after you've tightened the latch. Most gaskets are held by compression in a groove on the door or on the dishwasher cabinet. 
Step
4
Pull the old gasket out of its groove, using adjustable pliers (see illustration). Take the gasket to an appliance store to get a replacement. 
Step
5
Soak the new gasket in warm water to soften it, then press it into the groove. Start at the top, then work your way down the sides and across the bottom.

SOURCE: Bosch SHU 4000 series dishwasher; Water keeps on filling

Follow-up: I was able to fix the problem on Bosch model # SHU 4002UC. Purchased water inlet valve (part number 425458) from Sears Parts Center. I required the Sears unit number from the original invoice as Sears computer system apparently cannot identify the Bosch model number. The valve is as described by meyerjr above; however it is located at the bottom front of the machine so could be replaced (not so easily) without removing the machine. Cost of part was $30.50 Cdn including tax.

SOURCE: Dishwasher will not fill

EE,
The most likely culprit in a "no fill" scenario (especially after you've replaced the valve) is the Overflow preventer. It's designed to kill power to the valve if the water level gets too high. It does this by floating up as the water level rises.
Open the dishwasher door and remove the lower rack. You'll see it in the tub on the left side (the round thing that looks like a little hat). If it's stuck in the up (overflow) position, you won't get water. Raise and lower this device a few times... you should hear the "click click click" of the kill switch. Now just make sure it's in full down (ready for water) position and fire up the dishwasher. You should get water now.

If this helped, please rate this solution as "FixYa". BUT if this didn't fix the problem, don't rate it just yet. Write back and we'll go a little deeper into a diagnosis, OK?

Won't Fill and will attempt to run wash cycle when turned off and door is closed


Hello ddux97 - I understand your dishwasher has power but will not fill with water. Here are a few simple troubleshooting tips that may help you resolve this issue:

• Make sure water supply is turned on. (First check for shut off valve under the kitchen sink).

• Check the house circuit breaker or fuse box, reset circuit breaker or replace fuse.

• Check inlet hose and make sure it's not twisted.

• Does float overfill protector (mushroom shaped object in tub) move freely? This is located in the bottom left front corner of the dishwasher.

• If this is a new install, then make sure the unit is not pressed up against the cabinet and the fill tube is not squeezed closed.

• Make sure the electrical wires going to the water inlet valve have not come off. It is best to turn off power to the dishwasher before reconnect wires, it doesn't matter which terminal is off both need to be connected.

• Make sure the drain hose is installed correctly. If the drain hose is routed under the floor as the dishwasher fills water can be drawn from the tub and appear to have never filled.

• Some models of Frigidaire dishwashers use a water pressure switch that will shut off the water valve if the tub over fills. These models do not have floats.

I hope these troubleshooting tips help you in some small way.

Hi. first my dishwasher is not filling with water. i then put water in the dishwasher and let it go thru its cycles. water will not drain now. garbage disposal is clear. any suggestions?


The easiest thing to do is check the water valve to make sure it's turned on. The water supply valve will be in a cabinet next to the dishwasher. There will be a tube that runs into the area behind/under the dishwasher. The valve will probably be under a sink. There are also waters valves that supply the faucet. There's a chance that the dishwasher water line will be connected to a splitter on the water line that connects to the faucet. Your dishwasher will otherwise have an independent valve. Turn the valve handle counter clockwise until it stops, making sure the water is on. If the dishwasher still won't fill, see if you can find a float inside on the bottom. This float should move up and down freely. There may be a spoon or something stuck under it. If the dishwasher has electronic controls, you can try cutting the power for a little while to reset it, holding down a stop/cancel button, or running a cycle that you don't usually run. One of these methods may be able to clear an error state if it exists.

Hooked up new dishwasher and no water to it when turn it on.


Sounds like you're a real DIY (do-it-yourselfer)....great!

Try these steps:

Turn off the water supply valve to the dishwasher. Disconnect the water to the fill valve. Place a shallow pan under the water line and open the water valve slowly. If you have water flowing up to this point, check the power to dishwasher. If no water, check the water supply and anything that might keep water from flowing.

If you have water, then look at the inlet screen to the water fill valve. Sometimes, when a new water supply is hooked up, some sedimentation occurs and gets into the inlet screen at the water valve. Check this and clean it out as needed. Not all units have these screens.

Make sure you have removed any shipping plugs or other items that could prevent the unit from operating.

The unit did not reach it's full fill level after 10 minutes.
Check that water is not siphoning out as quickly as it fills. The drain hose must go up and attach under the counter top or go through a hole in the cabinet at, or near the counter top prior to connecting to the drain under the sink.
Also check that water is coming in at a sufficient level. Check the water shut off under the sink to be in the full open position. The screen in the water valve could be blocked, or the valve itself could be bad. If no water is coming in at all, make sure there is nothing (silverware) under the float. If not, suspect a bad valve.
**Remove power from the appliance prior to attempting any repairs.

I need to unplug and move a built-in Maytag dishwasher


Follow these steps:

1. Locate the electrical service breaker for your appliance and turn it off at the breaker panel. If it is plugged in by a serivce outlet, unplug the unit.
2. Turn off the water source under the sink.
3. Disconnect the drain line under the sink.
4. Remove the lower panel under the dishwasher door.
5. Locate the small electrical junction box under the dishwasher and disconnect the wires leads. Remember, standard household wiring is as follows: BLACK (HOT - 110-120VAC), WHITE (NEUTRAL - 0VAC, GREEN (or bare copper) is GROUND. Make sure you reconnect the wires in this fashion with wire lug nuts. If you have a local outlet plug you may leave the wiring instact.
6. Locate the fill valve (Usually on the left hand side of the dishwasher). This is where the water supply line connects. Disconnect the water supply line from the fill valve.
7. The dishwasher should have a couple of mounting screws located where the top of the dishwasher cabinet meets the underside of the cabinet.
8. With everything removed, the dishwasher should now be free and slide out from under the cabinet.

Let me know if you have further questions. I hope this helps you.

NOTE: You can also remove the water supply line at the fitting under the sink if it makes things easier.

Salt indicator light comes on?


Check the instructions which are freely available from www.miele.co.uk or the relevant site for your country. Browse to the current models and you should find the PDF for your model. For non-current models, instructions are under the link "Customer Support".

In general, the instructions are as follows:
If the water in your area is very soft and constantly lower than 0.7 mmol/l (4 °d) you do not need to add dishwasher salt. The water softener must, however, still be programmed to correspond to the water hardness level in your area. (The salt indicator light will still come on, but should be ignored).

Important: Before filling the salt reservoir with dishwasher salt for the first time, you must fill it with approx. 2 litres of water to enable the salt to dissolve. Once the dishwasher has been used, there is always sufficient water in the reservoir.

Inadvertently filling the salt reservoir with powder or liquid dishwasher detergent always leads to serious damage to the water softener. Make sure you have picked up the correct packet of dishwasher salt before filling the salt reservoir!

Only use special coarse grained dishwasher salt for reactivation. Do not use other salts such as cooking salt, agricultural grade or gritting salt. These may contain insoluble additives which can impair the functioning of the water softener.

To refill:
* Remove the lower basket and unscrew the salt reservoir cap.
* Fill the reservoir with approx. 2 litres of water (first use).
* Place the funnel provided over the salt reservoir and carefully fill with salt until the reservoir is full. The salt reservoir holds approx. 2 kg of salt depending on the brand used.

As the salt reservoir is filled, displaced water will overflow.
* Clean any excess salt from around the reservoir opening and then screw the cap on again firmly.
* Run the "Pre-wash" programme immediately to remove any traces of salt water from the cabinet.

For the Miele, the salt reservoir is usually under the bottom basket, the cap is usually grey in colour. [Only the latest models have the refill cap in the door itself].

You should be able to find dishwasher salt just about anywhere, I've even found it in Malaysia, sold at good ol' Tesco!! Brands of salt include Calgonit (Finish) & Somat.
