The first thought that comes to mind is the valve... are you sure the water valve to the dishwasher is open?

The next possible cause could be a bad relay switch which opens when the unit calls for water... if it's bad the switch will stay closed and it won't fill up

Sometimes when the unit is brand new it may take several tries before it starts pumping water thru because the line needs to purge.

could also be a severe kink in the water supply line from the valve...

I just moved in my house which has a whirlpool DU1100XTPQ3 dishwasher. problem is it is there's no water going to it. And yes I turned the water value on before anyone asks lol.

There is a screen in the end of the hose that may be plugged. Take off the hose from the valve to see if any water really is coming out of it.

There are two hoses coming from my Bosch SHE45M06UC dishwasher. One is obviously the drain coming from the back of the unit, and the other is attached to the side looped and not connected to anything. I...

Many people realize the dishwasher connects to a little hose on the sink, it is called an air gap. However, many people wonder " The air gap is there to prevent the water from being siphoned out of the dishwasher. When water flows through the drain hose, it creates a suction on the water still in the dishwasher. The air gap, makes a hole for air to get in. That way, the water only leaves the dishwasher when it supposed to, when it is pumped out. Another benefit of an air gap is that if the drain hose becomes clogged, the dishwasher can still pump out the water. Instead of flowing through the hose, as it should, it can flow out the air gap and into the sink.
The dishwasher's drain line usually connects to an air gap mounted at the countertop level on the sink. The drain line continues from the air gap to either the garbage disposer or directly to the sink drain. If the drainage hose between the air gap and the drain is partially or completely blocked, wat

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.

Diswasher is holding water in base after washing, not completely draining what is wrong?


Thanks for using FixYa. Dishwasher not draining properly or not draining at all issues can arise due to different reasons. Usually, these issues are related to kinked hoses, knocked out disposer unit (if connected with the dishwasher drain hose) & clogged drain pump & filter.

Also note that dishwashers do not drain completely after a finished cycle and this is normal. Dishwashers are designed to leave some water in the unit to ensure that the heating element doesn’t overheat. If you suddenly begin to experience a large amount of water being retained in your dishwasher, you have a problem. Some of the most common reasons include that the drain hose isn’t working properly, the drain pump isn’t working correctly, or possibly there is a plumbing problem in your home’s drain lines.

First check whether the drain is not clogged or blocked and the line is not kinked. Check all the hoses for blockages & also clean the air gap. Has the disposer been replaced recently? If so, chances are the knockout is still in place. Simply remove the drain hose from the disposer, and knock out the plug. If the disposer has not been replaced, try removing the drain hose from the disposer and use a wet-dry vacuum (prepared for water, of course) to **** any water (and hopefully anything else) from the drain line. Then reconnect the hose, and test the unit. If you have checked the air gap and the drain hose and can’t locate the problem, then it is an issue with the drain pump of the dishwasher.

Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

Frigidaire dishwasher -- either very small amount, or no water at all coming in. What does the valve look like? It is behind the toe board. There's also a small black square dodad down there too. I'm so...

if you remove the panel at the bottom of the dishwasher you will see either a copper hard pipe, or a flexible steel hose leading into the water inlet valve.

BE SURE TO CUT OFF THE WATER SUPPLY. It is probably located under the kitchen sink- just follow the water line until you see a cutoff handle.

The valve is activated by an electromagnet- you will see a plug with two wires leading into the cylinder shaped solenoid (the magnet). After turning off the water, and disconnecting the water supply and the hose to the machine and the wires (it's a tight space, so be patient) check and see if the screen (just inside where the water supply line connects to the valve) is clogged with limescale. If it is, you can clean it out fairly well with CLR or Limeaway, and that might fix your problem.

Good Luck!

KitchenAid KUDK03ITWH dishwasher will not pump water out


You bought this on my birthday, so there can't be anything wrong with the dishwasher. :-)

1) Check that the drain hose did not get pinched during installation.
2) Check that the hose leaves the dishwasher in an upward fashion, to the bottom of the counter-top, before heading back down to the dishwasher connection.
3) Did the dishwasher ever work properly? And if it did, were you using the sink at the same time?

Reply back what you find out. Will be glad to help more.

Water won't drain

Hi fixitfran,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your problem is: You have pulled the dishwasher out and checked hose. No kink in line. You have taken cleaned out dishwasher and no clog. You poored water into dishwasher and it drains from the bottom not throught drain hose. You have checked the drain hose on the bottom of the dishwasher and to no don't know what is causing this issue....can I help you out with this? LG-14AW3 Dishwasher does not drain properly and then powers itself off mid cycle. Filters are clean and there are no kinks in the drain hose. How do you fix this and will it be very expensive.

Have you recently replaced the garbage disposal? Sometimes the installer forgets to remove the knockout plug. All of the disposal manufacturers plug the d/w connection in case it is installed where there is no d/w. If there is a d/w, the plug must be removed.

Feel free contact me again!
