SOURCE: Dishwasher will not fill with water

Bosch D/w Have a float switchin the base pan of the unit you can access by removing the toe kick, if there is water in this base pan it turns the drain pump on and will not do anything else. So until the water is removed either vacume it out , or let it evaporate or however the unit will only drain

SOURCE: Dishwasher GU1500 Whirlpool--motor just hums

this strongly indicates the motor capacitor - normally mounted on or close to the motor. easy to replace and a cheap part. also possible motor seized - disconnect from mains and see if motor turns by hand

SOURCE: i have a kitchenaid superba dishwasher wont drain

does it make a buzzing sound when on pump? if so then the pump is trying but is either jammed or there is a blockage in the waste hose/outlet u bend. try seeing if there is a blockage in the waste hose first.

SOURCE: Kitchenaid dishwasher will not turn on or drain

Float valve is jammed.

Look inside the machine on the floor will be a small float valve. Looks like a small upside down cup. Lift it and clear anything from underneath.

The valve is a safety feature to stop the machine from over filling. If anything gets under the valve it will jam open and stop the machine.

Not working?

Check for a clog internal or external.

Scoop as much water our as you can. Open the cover on the floor of the machine. Usually just turns and lifts out or snaps out some are screwed in. Take your time and try not to force anything. Look for a clog there.

Check for clog in the drain. The dishwasher will connect to the drain under your sink and run either directly to the drain or into your disposal unit. Remove open the connections and look for a clog. Clear if necessary.

Not the clog?

Water is pumped out by the machine via an internal pump located under the base. If it fails the water will collect until it trips the float valve. First scoop out all the water from the machine and run it again. If water comes in and it runs to the point it fills again and trips the float then either the pump or timer is faulty.

Pump check.

Remove the machine. It will be held in place by screws directly into the counter top. You may have to lower it to get it out. The front feet turn with a wrench to lower.

Turn off the water supply. Run the unit again until you get to the drain cycle.

Connect a test light or voltage tester to the terminals at the pump. Check for voltage at the pump. If you have voltage replace the pump. If no voltage the timer is faulty.

Timer problem?
Some can be replaced as a unit others are integral to the control panel. Turn style can be replaced. Touch control can not.

Broken Timer? My OLD Kitchen Aid Quiet Scrub Dishwasher no longer advances through cycles automatically--I have to turn the knob manually for every step. It works fine other than that.


Hi Spring

All depends where you are and wether you can get Parts.
Is the timer accessible?
Timer is driven by a small clock motor.
Could it be fixed or lubricated.
Give it a service and save money!
Good luck

Here's a link for the repair manual for your dishwasher:
http://www.appliancerepair.net/kitchenaid-dishwasher-repair.html
Concentration should be on Chapter 2 subsection 2-3 "No Fill"
Then go to Chapter 6; subsections 6-2, 6-3, 6-3a, 6-3b, 6-3c, and 6-3h for testing procedures on relays, actuator valves, etc.

My dishwasher is filled with water and won't drain


Hi



Dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. Check the drain hose for any visible clogging, remove if present. If no visible lint is present then remove then turn off the dishwasher and remove the drain hose and check for any visible clogging. If still not visible then the drain filter or drain pump is clogged and you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump. Also, check for any food pieces stuck near the pump impeller.

Please note that dishwashers don't drain out the complete water such that heating element doesn't overheat.


Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.

Problem with dishwasher


inspect the drain, there may be debris in the drain system. While at it see if you can clean the unit. Normally food that had remained on the dishes would accumulate and start clogging the unit over time.

Dishwasher doesn't want to fill


Hello Dianne...I'll take a shot here.. chances are that the door interlock ( switch ) is disabling the dishwasher from starting.. it may be damaged or disconnected.. and as long as you are sure you have a water supply to the dishwasher,.. that's where I would start...If that switch is NOT made.. the dishwasher will not start... Hope that helps
