It sounds like a bad solenoid valve. Shut off the water to the dishwasher and disconnect the water supply line at the dishwasher. Caution, there will be water there...
Open the water supply valve and try to pass water through the line into a container. If you get water there, the solenoid valve is needing attention. make sure that there isnt bebris in the solenoid valve. Make sure that the wires are fully connected. If they are, and the valve was clear, I'd test or replace the valve. This is the most likely fault. If this didn't fix the problem, look into the float switch, making sure that it operated correctly.

The dishwasher tablet is dispensing but is not dissolving or washing the pots. Can you tell what is wrong with it please

I would suggest getting some dishwasher cleaner and run a cycle to make sure you aren't having issues with water flow. Poor water flow built up by mineral deposits can wreak havoc on dishwashers. Wal-Mart carries dishwasher cleaner at a good price.

Just so you know, there may be a water pump issue as well. I would try the cleaner first and, if that doesn't work, then your water pump may be failing or you aren't getting enough water to the dishwasher itself.

Hope this helps.

Diplomat dishwasher adp8332, keeps beeping before end of cycle F4, cant find manual ? any suggestions

It is possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors or feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program controller must initiate the INLET/PUMP MOTOR/DRAIN to work when it is commanded .If this does not happen then the voltage at these points must be checked or the fault relates to no voltage/drive from the controller. This means the controller is a suspect.

Check how to remove the control panel:

If the water flows then the flow should be good, if not the inlet valve is bad or there is dirt in the filter. Also check the flow at the inlet of the water line. What is most important for the motor to start functioning is that the door switch must be ON when the door is shut or this will be an error for starting the motor. The water pressure must be good and the spraying must be seen to be good. If there is low pumping or pressure then the spray arms will not turn around to inject with pressure. If so the pump must be checked for clogging.

To replace check this link:

Finally after the wash the drain valve will be activated, the water is allowed to come in to rinse and then finally the drain valve/pump activated so as to drain off all the water.

Motor starts but water doesn't flow into dishwasher.

Start your dishwasher like you would normally. You should here water going into it first. After that you should here the motor running. When you here the motor running, turn off the dishwasher and check to see if water is in the bottom of the dishwasher. If there is no water in there, most likely you have a bad water valve or the controller is not sending a signal to the valve to open.

There is a funny smell comign out of my dishwasher I have tried cleaners and it doesnt get rid of the smell also the washer isnt cleaning very well any suggestions to what i sould do or try?

could be one of the motors burning out or a faulty electronic valve not letting water in properly... unless you are competent working around live electrical circuits, theres probably not a lot you can do.

of course the obvious thing to check is that the water feed to the unit is not blocked and that water is flowing as it should. (do this by turning off the feed, unhooking the pipe from the unit, putting the pipe into a bucket and turning on the flow)

Dish washer not draning all the water

Could be a couple of things:
The drain is partially blocked.
There is some debris in the bottom of the dishwasher causing this.
The motor is not reversing properly. Some dishwashers the motor reverses to pump the water out.
There is water flowling back down the discharge tube.
Sometimes there is a flow director in the discharge tube that keeps the water from the drain from flowing back down that tube and it is not working properly. Check all these things. To give an detailed and particular answer please provide the model number and brand of your dishwasher...

Hi, My Miele G527 dishwasher is tripping the circuit breaker

I would suggest that you get in an electrician to test the washing machine for shorts and insulation problems as it could be shorting out in the motor or ground leakage from failing insulation

Dishes are not getting clean.

Dishwasher don't have "Filters" like refrigerators. What they do have are water valves like refrigerator ice makers. They a generally located in the bottom left front corner of the machine. Some of the earlier machine have a "wire screen" mounted just inside the inlet portion of the valve to catch sand, grit and such. Either way, replace the water valve and you should see a noticeable increase in inlet water flow.

Now if you are talking of water flow while machine is in the actual wash mode the you have a "pump" problem. If this is the case, and you really & I mean really know what you are doing then you can buy the parts to rebuil this pump. I don't suggest that you do that, we tech don't even do it. The pump comes as a complete unit, easy in and easy out. Pump motor number for this machine is 675748A, list for 162.08 today ( always subject to change over night). If you replace motor be sure to replace gasket # 717000. It must be replaced any time the motor is removed from base housing.

Leaks water from under dishwasher, some one suggested the fill valve assembly needs replacing???? kenmore


Thanks for using FixYa. If your dishwasher leaks, check these:

Main tub seal
Note… If the main motor of your dishwasher is mounted vertically, beneath the center bottom of the dishwasher, the following instructions probably apply to you. But if your motor is mounted horizontally, the pump isn't serviceable--you need to replace the entire pump and motor assembly.
The main tub seal is beneath the drain impeller. It prevents the water in the dishwasher from leaking out near the shaft of the motor. To get to the seal, which is inside the dishwasher, remove the:
Lower rack
Spray arm
Spray arm support
Wash/drain impellers
Then pry the seal out of its housing and replace it.
Door gasket or seal
Over time, door gaskets and seals harden and lose their ability to seal properly. You can't repair the seals. You need to replace them if they've begun to leak.
Water-inlet valve
The water-inlet valve, itself, seldom leaks. But, the water-supply line from the house and the rubber tube leading from the valve to the inside of the dishwasher may leak. Tighten or repair/replace these as necessary.
The water-inlet valve could mechanically stick open. When that happens, the water continues to flow into the dishwasher, which then floods your kitchen. Turn off the water supply to the dishwasher, and replace the valve.
Behind the lower access panel on your dishwasher are several rubber or plastic hoses. If the leak appears at a connection, try a new clamp. If that doesn't work, replace the hose.

Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

Water gets into disher when not inuse

dishwasher drain enters sewer system tapped into waste pipe below kitchen sink
water flowing from kitchen sink passes the opening of the dishwasher pipe
If the dishwasher hose does not loop up higher than the kitchen sink before going down to the bottom of the dishwasher water may flow downhill through the dishwasher drain into the dishwasher
ensure the dishwasher drain hose is screwed to the underside of the kitchen counter, to provide a stop to water flow.
The installation instructions suggest this
but often the dishwasher is at the end of its 'stretch'
and the installer assumes looping is just to use up excess hose, and doesnt.
an extension drain hose is available at most appliance stores
