Dishwasher wont fill


The float is located just inside the door either on the left or right hand side, it's a simple float, if it's stuck in the fill position then try a gentle push to release it, and make sure nothing is under the float causing it to stick in the filled position.

GE Dishwasher leaking


HI,
If you're just looking at the machine the problem is not going to be fixed..
and now the question: in witch cycle is leaking?
fill, wash or rinse?
can be...for fill...one hose from filling is broken.
for wash...mechanical seal from wash motor, the plastic manifold,one gasket.
rinse..manifold or hose for the rinse...rinse pump..
for drain..solenoid for drain, the hose for drain..
Anyway you must open the machine first of all and see.

Good luck

Is there any way to get more water or higher pressure to my Frigidaire 300 Series dishwasher? The water in the kitchen has good pressure, but we can't get enough into dishwasher. Chip


Make sure the water supply valve to the dishwasher is fully open. There may be a internal main valve trouble restricting the water flow. Disassemtle to fix.

Dishwashers are typically filled by one of two methods: (1) time and (2) water level. Time (the solenoid valve is opened for a certain amount of time to let water in) is the most common because it is the cheapest method. Better washers sense the level of the water and fill until the sensor is satisfied (like in your cloths washer)

Whats happens in a time controlled machine if you have good flow? The extra water goes down the drain, a wasteful, expensive process.

I suggest you make sure the dishwasher main valve is fully open (close the valve about 1/8th of a turn after fully open). If you still have a problem, check the strainer on the solenoid input valve. If it is there it may be clogged. Looks like the same washer with strainer you would typically fine in a clothing washer fill. Be prepared to replace it anyway. You may have a different connection arrangement.

Next step would be to check the solenoid valve to see it is fully opening.

If yours is a time fill, the timer MIGHT be of some concern but I doubt it. I would lean more toward the things I mentioned above.

If yours is a water level sensor type, you should check the water level sensor for proper operation. Typically, there will be a float of some kind in the bottom of the machine.

I hope this gives you food for thought. Good luck on your project and thanks for visiting FixYa.com

Hi, I installed LG dishwasher, control board is working, water is coming from the water line but when hooked up to the dishwasher and dishwasher is on, there is no water coming into the dishwasher....


it should drain a bit of water out before it fills when it first starts. if that water doesn't drain out then you may have a drain pump fault. You can test this by dumping a few glasses of water into the machine then starting it up ( you should hear it drain that water out)
if that worked... then you have a fill solenoid fault or a line filter fault.You can check power to the fill solenoid or give it a couple of taps when its suppose to be filling to see if its just stuck. the inline filter could be plugged where you hook up the water supply to the machine (clean it or take it right out)

Dishwasher always fills to float valve


There are actually several possible causes of your problem. I will briefly describe each in hopes that you can isolate the problem and will then know how to proceed.

If the water doesn't drain from your dishwasher, check these:

Drain line/air gap
Pump
Drain valve and/or solenoid
Belt
Motor
Timer
Drain line/air gap A clog in the drain line or air gap (if there is one) is the usual reason that a dishwasher won't drain. Often the problem is at the point where the drain line attaches to the garbage disposer or household drain line. If you remove this line, you can clear any debris from the hose or hose connection. Be sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher again.

Pump Your dishwasher pump ejects the water. The pump is usually mounted directly to the motor, then attached to the bottom of the dishwasher. You can reach the pump from inside the dishwasher, but first you need to remove the lower rack, the spray arm, and the spray arm support.

Look for an impeller--a round plastic fan blade-type of device that spins around. This is the wash impeller, which forces the water through the spray arm. Beneath the wash impeller is the drain impeller, which is similar in size and shape to the wash impeller. The drain impeller pushes the water toward the drain port. These components make up the pump. If any of the pump components are defective, you need to replace them.

Drain valve and/or solenoid Many dishwashers use a drain valve with an electric solenoid. When electricity flows to the solenoid, the valve opens and diverts the water to the drain. Sometimes the solenoid, or the diverting lever, sticks and prevents the dishwasher from draining or filling properly. Try to free up the solenoid to lubricate the lever. Otherwise, you may have to replace the solenoid or pump assembly. With these systems, the motor always rotates in one direction. When it's energized, the drain valve diverts the water.

Other dishwashers simply reverse the direction of the motor to drain the dishwasher. These units don't have a drain valve. Instead, there's a drain hose connected directly to the pump housing.

Belt One brand of dishwasher uses a belt to drive the pump. If this belt is broken or has fallen off, replace it.

Motor If the motor isn't turning or working, the unit won't drain. First check to be sure you have power to the dishwasher. If not, see the section "It doesn't work at all." If the motor hums but doesn't turn, it may need to be replaced.

Some dishwashers are susceptible to getting stuck if you don't run them regularly. If you haven't run the dishwasher for more than a week, you may need to manually spin the motor to free it up. If the motor is defective, you need to replace it. Dishwasher motors can't be serviced.

Timer Part of what the timer does is control the motor and drain valve. If the timer doesn't work properly, the water may not drain and you need to replace the timer. This problem is uncommon.

Not filling with water just making humming noise


You did not mention the make or model of machine. Usually if machine is humming, it is coming from either a fill or drain solenoid or a motor that is bad and will not start.

Engine is humming but the water does not make it into the dish washer


Replace the water solenoid valve, but try opening it up first, and seeing if there is any build up inside the valve. This is normal in solenoids just remove the obstruction and water should fill.

No power to dishwasher


depends on the sequence. many, but not all, dishwashers start with drain to get rid of the slops. if yours starts with fill, then no water supply will prevent progress.(you should be able to hear a low hum which is the valve energised) check also that the door is closing properly and latching. better to use cold water fill not hot
