Low water pressure at sink following reinstallation

We re-installed our dishwasher following a new floor installation. Now there is almost no water pressure at the sink. Can you tell me what might cause this? The water pressure at other locations in the house is fine. Kenmore model # 665.17034401

    Thanks for your help. We removed the filter ring at the faucet and cleaned out sediment. That fixed the problem!

If low pressure is only on the dishwasher and not sink.check both hoses going to dishwasher for clogs,rubber washer out of line or debris .if low pressure is only at sink could also remove faucet filter ring at tip for sediment or debris .or lastly check valve under sink cabinet that feeds both sink and dishwasher

No hot water pressure in kitchen, low cold pressure

sounds like a bad faucet//only if you had good pressure before it was cheaply test..take the hot water off from the shutoff valve and spray it into a milk jug to see if theres good flow..then replace the faucet assmbly..dont forget to turn off the shutoff valve first..or you will get a watery surprise!

Fills arbitrarily not holding any water after a full cycle. All seems well and on any given day it will have filled without warning and floods floor

Check your drain hose to where it connects under the sink. If it is connected to the garbage disposer, and not looped upwards before it runs back to the dishwasher, it may just be drain water from the sink running back to the dishwasher. Even if it hooks up to a "t" spout under the sink, and the drains run a little slow, water can still run back to the dishwasher. The ideal set up is to have it connect to the drainage, run up behind the bowls of the sink, and then back to the dishwasher.
If this is not the answer, then you may have a defective fill valve that is allowing water to seep into the machine (very unusual in dishwashers). Also note that water valves require 23 psi of pressure to seat closed and if the incoming pressure is less than that, even a new valve may have the same issue.
Good luck and let me know how you make out, and if you have any other questions.

New Whirlpool Dishwasher filler overflows.

New Whirlpool Dishwashers will NOT accept the same "volume" of water that was desired by the same products of 25 years ago. Therefore the old 3/8" ID copper supply is too large and will overflow the tub filler/aireator (out the air vent holes). I just installed a new dishwasher supply kit consisting of a new 3/8" OD stainless braded hose with an ID of about 1/4". This delivers less volume than that recommended (in the installation manual) and therfore does restrict the flow a bit. However, the flowrate is adequate and the new dishwasher now works perfectly with no water overflow on the floor . . .

Why wont dishwasher drain?

The 'drain hose' must placed into the sink and be free of kinks and obstruction. There is a pump that is supposed to pump the water out through the drain hose into the sink. If that pump does not activate, no water will be pumped out. I suggest yo have a repair technician trouble shoot and fit it.

Hobart sr24h dishwasher won't get up to temp.

the water level is low (should cover the bottom of the tank about a 1/4")and the pump is starving - therefor probably not washing very well.

three things to check

1. check braided fill hose for kinks (you will have to pull the machine out if under a counter). run the machine while pulled out if possible to ensure its not kinking when you push it in.

2. pressure reducing valve-prv (if installed) on the incomming water line before the braided hose (probably under a sink). turn the screw on top clockwise to increse pressure.
3. flow regulator (if installed) - installed under the bottom pannel at the end of the braided fill hose (about 2" long and silver). turn off water. you can simply remove it, drill out the centre or just remove the rubber peice inside.

inrease the temp by adjusting the thermostat on the right side under the bottom pannel in front of the booster.(dail is hard to see and breaker must be turned off)

remember - the machine must be turned on for several minuets to truly get up to temp.

Dishwasher makes a loud noise until I turn on the water in sink

You have too much water pressure it sounds like for the fill valve to operate properly. I am assuming it is chattering? How much water pressure do you have? If its too high an inexpensive regulator can be purchased at most plumbing supply stores to install in the DW supply line.

Remodeled kithen; when dishwasher reinstalled, water backs up

OK, I have made this error before.
When you install a new garbage disposal, it comes with a "plug" that fills the hole of the little pipe that the dishwasher drain hose connects to (if there is a dishwasher.)
Remove that plug (see instructions for the disposal) and you should be all set.
Also, if you ever get the chance, consider installing a dishwasher AirGap valve between your dishwasher and garbage disposal. They are almost free at any hardware store.
Good Luck! Please report back with what you find.

Frigidaire dishwasher KUDKO31TBT#

you can not take the drain hose straight down thro the floor or the water will drain out as fast as it comes in. you can drain into a spigot on the sink trap or into a vertical pipe connected into your drains via a water barrier

E4 error on new conia dishwasher

Had the same problem. First you will need to tilt dishwasher back 45 degrees and tip out all excess water. A couple of towels on the floor are a good idea.

Second check that the little nozzle on the elbow under your sink where your overflow attaches is drilled out.

This fixed my problem after fussing around for a day and I was starting to disconnect everything to take it back.
