Re: Water not running

All these sound the same, the water inlet line is plugged with deposits from the water, especially is this is an older machine and the quality is poor. take off the front panel and remove the water supply line under the machine where it attaches to the solenoid. Be sure to turn the water off first. The solenoid inlet housing will have a screen similar to the one on the end of your faucet. If this is plugged with calcium or other deposits, it will cause these type of problems.

The soap holder is opening during the wash cycle but the soap tablet is not dissolving. Any ideas?

Is the water coming on? Is water hot enough? Is washer overloaded, water jets aren't hitting the soap? Maybe try a different brand of soap tablet? Run the dishwasher in "heavy soil" mode which will use hotter water and run for longer?

Dish soap is leaving a build up on the interior of the dishwasher

Hi. Run your hottest and longest cycle with no soap, no dishes and 2 cups of white vinegar. Also, run the hot water into the sink before starting the dishwasher. Once the sink water is as hot as it gets, then push the start on the dishwasher. J.

Can I take the bottom part of the dishwaher apart

Mkae sure you are running kitchen hot water faucet before starting dish washer. If not you are getting mostly a cold water wash thru out the cycle. Also make sure the jet dry dispenser is full. Always use the liquid jet dry as the small cubes you can get do not work nearly as well.

Soap not breaking down in dishwasher

Be sure to run kitchen water hot at faucet before starting dishwasher or you will get an entirely cold water washer. Also be sure the jet dry dispenser is not empty. Only use liquid jet dry. Pay no attention if soap says with jet dry. Does not work as well. Hope this helps.

No water spraying in washer, and no error code


1. not enough water gets into the dishwasher. open the dishwasher 3-4 times during cycle, you should see some water at least once, if not - check water valve, water level float and water pressure.
2. the pump is clogged - there is water, the motor will run but no water is circulated. Check pump filters, check chopper and impeller.

Good luck,

It ended up being a simple fix. Soap had dried on the floater (water sensor device) and it could not move, therefore no water was going in. I poured hot water and vinegar into the washer and ran a complete cycle and it is working fine now

Let it fill with water then add 1/4 cup of vegetable oil. Let the washer run a few minutes and open the door to see if the suds are gone. If so, drain the washer and run it through a short cycle with small amount of proper detergent to clean any oil residue from tub.
This will also work for clothes washers that oversuds.
