Check to make sure there isn't something holding the flood switch up. It is a hat shaped tube in the bottom of the dishwasher that can be blocked up by soap an kept in the upright position. If it moves freely check to make sure your water valve has stopped working or has a block screen.

Bosch S9G1B dishwasher doesn't fill with water


The valve will not energize if the float is up at the limit. Sometimes a bit of soapscum can leave the float in the up position. When this happens no water is allowed into the chamber. Move the float up and down and clean the travel using a bleach spray.

Water Inlet Valve

The dishwasher has an electrical water valve called a water inlet valve. If the dishwasher won't fill with water, the water inlet valve might be defective. These valves are not repairable and will have to be replaced.

Float

The float assembly is normally inside the dishwasher near the door on the floor of the dishwasher. If something gets stuck underneath it and holds the float assembly up, the dishwasher won't fill with water. If the float assembly moves freely up and down, the float switch might be defective.

Float Switch

The float switch is actuated by the float assembly. It is a protection device designed to prevent the dishwasher from overfilling. If the dishwasher won't fill with water, it may be because this float switch is defective or stuck.

Water Supply Problem

The dishwasher is connected to the hot water supply from the house. Check to be sure the household water supply valve is turned on. Over time, calcium deposits can build up in the water supply valve or in the small filter screen inside the water inlet valve. The water supply line may need to be removed from the water inlet valve of the dishwasher, then run some water into a bucket to see if there is enough pressure. Be certain to turn off the water before working on the water line.

Dishwasher will not fill have changed the inlet valve but still not filling.


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.

Dishwasher panel displaying fe when turned on


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.

FE is a fill error. This can be cause by a problem with the water supply, the inlet water valve, the Float sensor or the Flood sensor. Check the float sensor usually in the front left or center positon of the tub. It should lift and drop for a distanct of about 3/8 inch. If they get coated with food stuffs on the stem they stick. The flood sensor is usually mid point right or left side of the lower tub. Same thing here... if they get stuck in the UP position they waill not allow water to be introduced into the tub. Since you did not include a model number... I have to include all types of sensors. Some float and flood sensors are finger like and have a small slot in them to sense water level. The small slot clogs and they no longer sense properly or hold water when the tub is empty giving erronous inputs. Wipe off the finger slots.

IF the Float and flood sensors are ok the next step is to first POWER off dishwaher circuit. Then turn off the water supply and disconnect the water line at the inlet water valve to inspect for debris. Also you should briefly test the water supply line by placing a rag over the input line and turning on the water while catching the water in a short sided baking dish. (
If there is not a problem with water supply or debris then the final step is to measure continuity of the inlet water valve solenoid. No continuity = open coil and will require the inlet water valve to be replaced.

Since you did not include a model number this is a very generic response.

My Kenmore Portable Dishwasher model number 665.17769K600 will not fill with water, I have to manually fill with water and it will then work. What could be causing this?


Hi



When the Dishwasher is not filling in, you'll need to check for the water inlet valve, the filter screen and the float switch/assembly. Also check for the float assembly inside the dishwasher. When water is filling 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 these are fine then it's due to Water Inlet Valve. Use a multimeter and check for the 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.

No water


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.
If you want specific information we need a model number please to better help you. Otherwise we can only speak in generic terms. No water is usually caused by either a failed water inlet valve .. a clogged water supply line that has plumbing debris in it from the hot water hater or a stuck float switch.
The plastic float switch assembly inside the dishwasher that if there is food debris on the stem it will hold the float in the UP position and the dishwasher will not fill at all. Some models also have a flood switch. The switches work by being lifted up as a result of the water level. Make sure the switches function by gently lifting them up and down. If they stick up it will cut off power to the inlet water valve solenoid. Some float switches have an outer cover that must be removed to gain access to the actual dome shaped float.

Kelly
