Hi There,

Check first the door if you have a switch or a sensor, check if the switch is stuck or there is no voltage running on the sensor which will indicate the possible source of the problem. Have it tested. You can also test the float assembly which is below the bottom panel.

Check as well the source of the water which could run towards the sink. See if there is anything blocking the hose or a faulty valve.

It may look similar to this:

Open it up and see if the float moves freely.

Have the valves tested. There is one for the intake and one for the drain. If you follow the hose for the water you will end up in an assembly which is the intake valve. Have it tested and see if water is going in once you close the door. Check the pump if it is forcing water in. Check the pump wiring and if voltage is present in the pump. The pump could be faulty. The drain valve could also be the reason why you are not having the washer filled. The drain pump could also be open all the time. It has a solenoid that controls it. Have it tested, check if there is voltage running through it.

SOURCE: Dishwasher fan fills with water

Well, I just took my hose out (pulled both ends off the connectors) and it was indeed full of junky cruddy muck, so blew it out over a waste bin until it ran clear through. Now I've put the hose back on and will see what happens next wash!

SOURCE: my dishwasher is not filling up water

Asuming you have an AM15, Check you have power to the fill valve during fill cycle. Make sure your drain is closed to retain the fill water. You should have 20 psi flow rate.

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.

follow this steps and fix it. God bless you

Water Inlet Valve

If the dishwasher is leaking water the water inlet valve might be defective. If the water inlet valve sticks open, it will allow water to fill the dishwasher continuously. Some customers report that they see clean water filling the bottom of the dishwasher after it's been sitting all night or for a couple of days. If this happens, turn off the water that is supplying the dishwasher. This is normally a valve under the kitchen sink. Then, replace the water inlet valve, it cannot be repaired. The water valve needs at least 20 lbs pressure to shut off properly. If your water pressure is to low replacing the valve may not solve the problem.

Center Wash Arm Assembly

If the dishwasher is leaking water, the center wash arm assembly might be cracked or split. This can allow a jet of water to spray toward the door seal, causing a leak. If a crack or split in the center wash arm assembly is found, replace it. There isn't any glue that will hold the part together inside the dishwasher.





Lower Wash Arm Assembly

If the dishwasher is leaking water the lower wash arm assembly might be defective. If the lower wash arm has a crack or split on the end, it can force water to spray directly toward the lower part of the dishwasher door. Then, the water can be forced under the door and onto the floor. Check the lower wash arm for any cracks or splits and replace it if necessary. Also make sure the screws are tight in the wash arm support. If the screws are loose, water can spray out the side of the pump and cause a leak.





Upper Wash Arm Assembly

If the upper wash arm assembly is broken or cracked it can cause water to spray very forcefully toward the seams of the door, causing a leak.





Door Seal

Every dishwasher door has a door seal. If the dishwasher is leaking water, it might be that the door seal is defective or worn out. Try closing the dishwasher door on a dollar bill and see if the door seal is making good contact all the way around the door. If not, replace the door seal. If the door seal is good or has been replaced and there is still a leak check the door hinges. If the hinges are bent the door will not close properly and the hinges will need to be replaced.





Dishwasher Door Gasket

Every dishwasher door has a door seal. If the dishwasher is leaking water, it might be that the door seal is defective or worn out. Try closing the dishwasher door on a dollar bill and see if the door seal is making good contact all the way around the door. If not, replace the door seal.

Dishwasher fills but no pressure during wash, middle and upper sprayer are not moving. I cleaned trap and lines in tub - no improvement. Is pump bad, how to test? Is this worth fixing?


What I would Do :
1st I would start your dishwasher and let it fill with water and when it stoped filling, I would open the door to see how much water it filled in the tub. ((( if you don't have enough water you will not get the correct pressure )))

If We have enough water we then close the dishwasher door and resume.

you have 2 motors in the bottom of your dishwasher, The drain pump motor and the Wash motor. They should be differen sounds.

We want to know if your wash motor is coming on.

If your wash motor is coming on then I will listen to see if I here water coming out of the spray arm. (( somtimes you can here the swish of the water hiting the door ))

If you do not here the water then I would open the door and position all spray arms the same way and close the door for a min and reopen to see if i have any movment.

If you do not have any movement and did here the motor run then your impellor might be broken or cloged or bound. you will only really find out by taking it apart. you could buy the hole pump & motor Kit. but you can save money by finding out what is the cause.

You can see a breakdown of a similar model here
I was unable to get your model to come up and you should check the machine model number so you have it to get the correct parts. Look at the pump & motor section and you will see how this pump is broken down.

If you don't think your getting the proper water amount, just open the dishwasher door and pour 5 or 6 glasses in and close the door for the wash cycle and listen for a differance.

Tablet falls to the bottom of tub but wont disolve


The newer Whirlpool dishwashers have little slots in the top of the soap dispenser to allow water to seep in during the first water fill. This design allows the tablet to begin to dissolve during the first fill then be usefull when the soap door opens. In your case, I would check to see if the soap dish is opening at all. Perhaps one of the racks are not allowing clearance or the soap door itself is sticking closed.

Let the dishwasher fill, drain, and then fill again. Open the door of the dishwasher and see if the soap door is still closed and if so, there is your problem. Also, at this time, check the water temperature. It should be at least 120 degrees F for the soap to be effective.

Hope this helps, Ken

Wil not fill with water


  • Check that the water supply is turned on. The valve may be located under the sink.
  • Check the door latch
  • Test the door switch
  • Inspect the float assembly
  • Inspect the fill tube for kinks
  • Test the float switch
  • Check the inlet valve filter screens
  • Test the water inlet valve
  • Test the drain valve lever arm
  • Check the drain valve
  • The door latch pulls the door tightly closed to prevent water leakage around the door. It is also designed to prevent operation while the door is open. The door latch works in concert with the door switch to ensure that the door is tightly closed and latched. The door switch is a separate part from the door latch and is found inside the cabinet. The switch is off when the door is open. Depressing the switch closes the circuit and enables dishwasher operation. Closing the door does not depress the switch all the way. Only when the door is closed and latched, does the door fully depress the switch.
    If the door latch is not properly aligned it may not pull the door tightly closed and the door switch will not be fully depressed. Unless the switch is fully depressed the dishwasher will not operate.
    It is a simple matter to determine whether the door latch is the problem. Simply open the door, close the latch and select a cycle and depress the switch. Note that if the test is successful, with the door open, the dishwasher will operate and water may spray out. Make sure to first remove all tools from inside the dishwasher. Do not reach inside the dishwasher during the test. Now, inspect the cabinet where the door makes contact with it and locate the door switch. It may have a protruding button or spike or more likely it is a hole with a piece of metal or plastic inside it. You must fully depress that switch. If the switch is recessed, then use a non-conductive object, such as a wooden pencil, to depress the switch
