Dishwasher not filling with water

I ordered a new washer arm, but its not working. The old one got stuck and melted. Help... The water sounds like it is on and the dishwasher goes through all of the settings but no water actually runs through the dishwasher now.

Hello.

The humming sound you hear for the water is the sound of the solenoid trying to open with now success. You will need to replace the water valve. If you get the model number and go to www.sears.com and click parts direct it will have a place to enter the model number and order the water valve for your unit.

My dish washer wont fill with water


there is a float, usually at front left side inside dishwasher, that may be stuck..possibly an utility holding it up, or the fill valve is stuck. When dishwasher calls for water, it fills until this float rises to proper level and shuts the valve off at proper level. If it sticks, water will shut off at improper level.

Low water level error with a new samsung dishwasher. Only 3 months old. What could be the problem?


Do you hear the washer draining (into the sink drain) after it fills and should start washing? Check that nothing (sound deadener, etc.) is interferring with the drain valve lever arm.

Dishwasher not cleaning properly - soap dispenser does not empty. Dishes are not dry


you might have water problem if the unit fill with water but not spray the water all over that can be the problem and it can be fix.
to see if the spray arm is working good - after the unit fill with water and it sound that it start cleaning open it slowly and put the arm in any angle you want then close the door so it can run again , then open again see if it moved .
if it didnt move then ou have a spray unit problem or pump problem , but if it did move look on the spray arm hols you might have food or something got stuck in them, and cleaning them will help .
let me know what you found and i can help you more...

Kenmore dishwasher, water not going through the jets


when you hear the motor running during the wash cycle, check to see if the washer is actually draining instead of washing. this would indicate a stuck open drain valve. (the same motor/pump that washes the dishes, also drains the unit)

DISASTER! PLEASE HELP. WOKE UP THIS MORNING & DISHWASHER MELTED!!!


Amsanta, sounds like something got hung up on the heating element, stopped the lower spray arm and things started to melt. The lower spray arm, part number, 154414101 is easy to change out. There is also a lower spray arm support 154294101, don't know if you will need that. I believe on your model the lower spray arm just snaps on. There is a tab on the filter screen that will rotate to unlock and the filter screen will lift out. Now the lower spray arm support is accessable. If it's less than a year old, you may be able to get it fixed under warranty. Catriver.

Certainly sounds like the float is stuck in the over filled position or possible a bad float switch. Could also be a bad water fill valve - if you can blow air through it when removed then you need to replace it. You can follow this link to troubleshoot your washer, but note that its not exactly for your model - http://www.thermador.com/replacementparts/main/pdfs/SHU-complete-troubleshooting-guide.pdf Good luck!
