Hello;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

You may have unnecessarily replaced the solenoid valve. Did you Ohm it out to see if it was bad?

You may have a bad fill switch or your float is stuck in the up position or a bad float switch.

I can not tell you for sure because you did not provide a model number.

SOURCE: My Bosch dishwasher model #SHU43C05UC/14

open machine when running and check both spray arms rotating - you will get a bit of water out. if spray arms not rotating, usual cause is debris in the arms. the spray arms only rotate by water jetting from angled jets at the end of the arms. take them out and make sure all debris removed

SOURCE: E1 error on LG dishwasher

As per my email reply chazmano5, the problem is likely to be the water pump/motor assy.

They have a very common fault of the impeller breaking on the motor shaft. The motor still spins, but the impeller doesn't, so there is no water being pumped.

The machine senses there is no water pressure and shuts down, displaying E1 (eg: it thinks no water pressure means there must be a water leak) Unfortunately the motor/impeller is only available as a complete assembly.

SOURCE: LG Dishwasher LDS5811ST 1E error code

I had a LG certified repairman come out and fix. The electrical wires within the door were melted into the "tar" (sound deafening spray) and one wire actualy sheered. Apparently the drying cycle heats the tar and the wires become embeded and melt into the tar. This is what was causing the error code. After the wire was tested and spliced everything worked great. Long term...The door/electrical harness was replaced by LG.

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.

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.

I have a Whirlpool Dishwasher model no. ADG 6340 IX.The inlet valve is pulsing and letting in water on every pulse. It just keeps filling, over fills and trips elcb


Hello there and thank you for choosing fixya
This is a very common problem with these types of machines the water inlet valve has a solinoid for the hot and a solinoid for the cold that opens and closes the water on demand .
When they start to pulsate like this it is trying to close the valve but it cant this is normally due to the valve being clogged with debris or the valve is failing all together and simply needs to be replaced
So what i would do is first if you can look into the inlet valve with a flashlight and see ifit looks like it has stuff in it and if so clean it out and try it again if this doesnt work than you can assum that the valve will need to be replaced here is what the one of the valves should look like or close to it .

Fault code F6 on whirlpool adp6940. what is it?


Hello there
F6 error code - The dishwasher can't take on water. Check that the water inlet is properly connected, the stop tap valve is open and that water supply is otherwise available to the dishwasher. Also check for kinks or blockages on the water hose. if all is good than you may have a problem with the solinoid valve for the water or the cycle timer may be faulty and the door switch may be bad or not working properly so
you will want them checked for ohms and resistance if they are found bad they need to be replaced

Dishwasher power there but wont fill up with water makes a slight buzz sound any ideas please ?? It's a Zanussi zdt6252 by the way..


The slight buzz is coming from the water inlet valve solinoid. It's OK.

But check whether water is getting into the inlet tube of the washer. Check the filter at the rear of the dish washer body wher the inlet tube from your water tap is connected.

Our dishwasher does not seem to be getting any


The anti flood device (polystireene plate and micro switch) when activated due to water leak on floor of washer, shuts off the water inlet valve and puts the drain pump on. Determine if any water has leaked to the floor of the washer and is activating this switch. Dry the water and rectify any leak. The water inlet valve (solinoid) could also be faulty although this is not common.

It will not fill with clean water. It sounds like it is pumping water out. I can fill it with water by opening the door and it runs its normal cycle. What is wrong


there is a inlet valve that has a solinoid control to open if the solenoid does not work the default position is closed and the water cannot come in

No water in washing/rinse cycle of dishwasher


It sounds as if the warter inlet valve (solinoid) isn't working and might have to be replaced. If everything else opeates fine, (unit pumps and sprays water that you added to it, pumps out and drains OK, then it is very likely the inlet valve has failed.

You can check for a blockage in the water inlet line, but unless you have a lot of sediment in your water or use a private well for your water supply, that would be a remote possibility, but worth taking a look at before buying replacement parts, etc.

You can remove the water supply hose/line and check for proper water flow and see if there is anything blocking the water from getting into the dishwasher. Many uints have a filter screen installed in them, so check that to see if it is blocked. Otherwise, look at the inlet valve and see if it is working correctly and go from there in replacing it.

One last thing, make sure the water supply line is actually providing water to the dishwasher, sometimes the water valves some installers use do get blocked, depending on how it was installed.

Siemens Model SL84-A - Water will not pump into dishwasher


heres a screen on the inlet to the water solinoid that plugs up with calcium alot of the time. shut off the water and take the bottom panel off the unit and you will see where the solinoid is. take off the water and then take the solinoid out and apart to clean. reassemble and you will be good to go.
