Re: No Water in dishwasher

Check your drain line it should run to your sink or disposal if it is too low it may siphon out the water as fast as it fills if that is the case strap it up as to cause a loop (inverted Trap) if this is not it i will need model # and rand to go futher

My electrolux dishwasher runs for an extended period and cleans the dishes poorly.

Hi Robert, thank you for your post! Often when a dishwasher takes too long to complete a cycle, it is because more than likely the incoming water at the sink is less than 120F, which it can delay the performance and advancement of the timer until proper water temperature is reached. Best way to ensure the proper temperature is reach, run the sink faucet until the water comes out hot before the dishwasher is turned on. I suggest confirming that the Delay Start option has not been selected and highly recommend using rinse aid to help increase cleaning and drying performance. If the instructions above do not solve the problem, I am fairly confident that an authorized service agent will be able to restore your appliance to its normal operating condition. You can often locate a qualified service technician on the manufacturer website
Thanks for allowing me the opportunity to assist you!

To avoid personal injury or even death, always disconnect your appliance from its power source--that is, unplug it or break the connection at the circuit breaker or fuse box--before you do any troubleshooting or repair work on your appliance.

Machine runs but doesn't allow water to come into machine

Don't know the history of your machine, sounds like possibly the hot water supply valve under your sink is turned off. To check this go under your kitchen sink and inspect water supply valves, (right side cold water) left side hot water valve feeds the machine. Vertical water line is for sink above, there should be a second water line coming off this valve that has its own on/off knob. Make sure this knob is turned on, (counterclockwise)if not sure turn it to the right (clockwise)till stops, then to the left till it stops. This allows hot water to enter dish machine. If valve is on and line is ok, there might be a kink in the line behind the dish machine or a restriction (clog) in the water line. May need to unplug machine and unsecure it to pull it out for inspection. Good luck,best regards.

Loud noise starts as soon as water starts coming into dishwasher. Stops when water in or water draining. What could it be?


This hammering is usually from restrictions in the water line or inside the valve on the machine itself.

Try taking the water line off of the machine(with the water supply turned off) then disconnect the line from the dishwasher and flush water into a bucket from this line until it runs clean. Reconnect, if it still makes the noise you will need to replace the inlet valve on the dishwasher. Let me know if this was helpful or if you have questions please.

Thank you

Check whether water is flowing into the machine. Disconnect and check the water flow at the machine connecting end. This is user serviceable portion and no special tools required. Check the strainer submerged in to the small pipe on the machine body. Clean if blocked.

To ease matters further pour water into the wash chamber manually to a required level. Run the machine. if OK only your incoming water problem.

Finally check the inlet solenoid valve & its associated circuitry if problem persists. Take help through the authorized service provider.

Shu3035 when i turn dishwasher on it seems to be

Hi I am Vortash it sounds like your vacum sensor has gone .. this is the device that tells the machine how much water it has in it , should this fail it sometimes confuses the machine into thinking it is full of water and is actually a very common fault with dishwashers and washing machines . So it carries on and does a full cycle thinking it is washing but has no water . If it was just the water feed solenoid the vacum would not allow the machine to run , but if the vacum is faulty it stops the feed from opening and allowing water in .
Another possibility is that your program panel has gone and requires replacement .. but I would try the vacum first as this would be the far cheaper option first ... Regards Vortash

When we turn on the dishwasher it doesn't fill with water

Hi I am vortash it sounds like this is a water level switch ( vacum ) problem it is telling the machine there is water in and the machine carries on and doesn't open the flow valve to put the water in .. as it thinks it is full . or the controller is faulty and need s repalcing .. try replacing the level control first as this would be cheaper than the programer.. Regards Vortash

JET TECH/model F18/small amount of water stays in bottom.Wont fill or cycle but water runs.


It is normal to have 4 or 5 inches of water inside the dishwasher unless you remove the stand-pipe (located inside, front right side). This pipe should be removed at least once a day and the dishwasher should be drained. Don't forget to turn the power off first.

Very long cycle as before

If your dishwasher's cycle times are too long, check these:

Water pre-heating
Cycle not completing
Water pre-heating Yourdishwasher may pre-heat the water. If so, and if the water entering thedishwasher is cool, the heater may take up to half an hour to heat thewater.

To avoid the wait, increase the incoming watertemperature before turning on the dishwasher. Do that by running thekitchen sink faucet until the water runs hot. Or increase thetemperature of the hot water to the entire house at the hot waterheater.

Warning! To lessen the risk of scalding, don't set the hot water heater temperature higher than 120 degrees Fahrenheit.

Cycle not completing
