SOURCE: Ge Triton XL Dishwasher Fill Problem

I would check your fill valve screen, where your water line connects to the dishwasher, lots of times i will see that screen clogged, especially on customers homes that have wells.

There is no way to change the fill time on these.
There is also the potential problem with the float sticking if it is gunked up it will not allow water in...see that it moves up and down freely and you should here a clicking noise.....If it is not one of these there could be a problem...with the timer...I am providing a link that will help walk you through this problem in a more technical...manner...if you are not comfortable performing these tests...i suggest you forego it and let a tech handle it....

Water wont stop filling up


If water keeps filling or dribbling into the machine with the power off it's the water inlet solenoid. If it overfills only during the cycle then it is the pressure switch or pressure switch tube.

I am not getting any water to fill the tank for washing


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 hen you'll need to replace the water inlet valve assembly.

Please post back for any further assistance.

Can not hold wash temps at 150 degress F.? Once filled the resorvior tank stays filled, but water continues to run out main drain?


If it's drain water and filling with water at the same time your drain hose is lower than the water fill line of the washer. try raising the drain hose up higher

The tank where the salt goes should that be filled with water, never used a dishwasher before


Yes it should. Mine is always full of water when I fill it with salt. If there is no water how can the salt dissolve?

Dishwasher will not run after filled with water


The float switch in the tank is bad,also if water only trickles in your fill valve is going bad which will not let it fill all the way to start wash cycle. Fill tub with pot of water to raise float, if wash cycle starts,replace fill valve,if not,replace float switch.

Wont fill with water


Clean the floats inside the wash tank. If they get fouled, they will "trick" the machine into thinking it already has water in it

Check to see in you have enough water in tank. The dishwasher fills then recirculates this water under pressure. If you have water in tank, listen to see if motor is running or not. If it is, you may have clogged jet holes in the wash arms.
