The instruction manual states that the water must be turned of between uses. This is practically impossible for most dishwashers, is this essential, can we run with the water permanently connected?

This is a catch 22, or the washer manufacture does not want to take any responsibility if the fill valve or hose, if supplied by them, should fail and cause water damage in your home!!

During vacations we turn the hot water to off and shut the water off. Water damage in the home is a major expense usually dish or clothes washer hose failure. Other case is burst frozen water line.

If you have a concern add a gate valve in a very convenient location in the cabinet closest to the dishwasher and turn the water off when not being used. These vales open and close with a 90 degree turn. Be sure to hard plumb the connection from the supply to the valve.

Locate the valve in the cabinet at the top in the front so you do not need to bend down to operate.

Was away on vacation, shut water supply off, got home and went to do a load, but forgot to turn water back on. Got h and f error code, now door will not unlock, cannot reset with holding the cancel button,...

Hello & Welcome to FixYa

FH error is displayed when the control detects no water entering the machine. To clear this error press and hold the PAUSE/CANCEL button twice. You can then check if the water inlet valve is fine and not clogged with foreign particles, try to clean it. If the water inlet valve appears to be fine then check if the pressure switch hose is properly connected to the pressure switch & tub. Please get back to me if you have any questions.

My computer appears to be freezing and then over period of few minutes will ''unfreeze'' but cannot connect to internet or get my email--just keeps saying connecting. Was away on a long vacation and forgot...

This can be caused my many different problems, my best guess as the pc was on while away is that you may have a virus. If you have anti virus do a complete scan with updated virus definitions. Also check that your hard disk is not full. If you need detailed instructions or these suggestions did not clear the problem please post back.

Please rate this solution if it has helped you.
Thanks, Gary

Ran HE3 without Water, it's now locked up

Unplug the washer and wait 30 minutes, sometimes the next morning for the machine to reset. Make sure the water is on because it while find multiple failures and lock up, Secondly you can try putting the machine into diagnostic cycle to ensure it is ok. Press drain/spin and select no spin for spin speed finally press prewash quickly two or three times and let it run, any flashing codes?, hit prewash again after writing the codes down.

Icemaker will not was dispense ice

My icemaker stopped producing ice. We turned off the water line to it when we went on vacation for a week. We turned the water back on when we got home and since that time it won't produce ice. We can still get water from the door dispenser though.
