Re: Kleenmaid DW3 dishwasher not running.

Hello, this isn't a fix, but if you can't get the dishwasher fixed, I am interested in purchasing the cutlery baskets off you, if they are still in reasonable condition. Mine has plenty of breaks in the base and the handles poke through, which affects the lower spray arm rotation. Please reply through another post if you're selling. Thanks.

Kleenmaid DW3 dishwasher not running.


If there's no water entering your dishwasher, check these:

Water-inlet valve
Float switch
Water-inlet valve The water-inlet valve lets water enter the machine. If this valve is defective, you need to completely replace it. It's usually located behind the lower access panel on the left or right side. It's the device with the main water line (usually copper) from the house, a rubber tube to the dishwasher, and two wires attached to it.

Float switch The float switch is a small electrical switch that's located right below the dishwasher "floor." Above the switch, on the inside of the dishwasher, is a plastic cylinder that floats up as water fills the dishwasher. If this switch is defective, or if the plastic float gets caught or trapped in the raised position, the water can't enter the dishwasher. If the float switch is defective, you need to replace it.

Have Kleenmaid "Super silent system"

Dishwasher Doesn't Fill

1) First make sure the water is turned on. Check the hot-water supply stop valve, normally located under the sink. Open it all the way by turning it counterclockwise. If there is no reason this would have been turned off since the last time the dishwasher worked, go on to the next step.

2) Turn off the power to the dishwasher.

3) When the dishwasher is cool, look for the float inside the dishwasher; this is usually a small plastic dome or cylinder mounted inside at the tub's base, near the front. When you move most types of floats up and down, you can hear them click because they trip a lever (they are spring-loaded).

Lift out the float mechanism, and clean around the float tube. Many floats must be disconnected from below; to do this you'll have to remove the lower access panel. Rinse off the float, replace it in the tube, and make sure it moves up and down freely.

4) If you're experienced with minor repair work, shut off the hot-water valve to the appliance. Locate the water intake valve, behind the dishwasher's bottom front panel; disassemble the valve to reveal the screen; clean debris from the screen; and reassemble. If the screen doesn't appear to be blocked, call a repairperson (he or she will probably need to replace the water intake valve).

5) If none of this helps, call a repairperson. Any of several parts-including the water inlet valve, pressure switch, and the timer or selector switch-may be faulty.

My Kleenmaid dishwasher is stopping during the cycle and displaying fault D14, what does this mean

This is a Pump Filling Fault.
As described in your manual to download below. Could be the pump, the controller, the door sensor, a float switch stuck.
Below is a DIY self help site to assist you to isolate and hopefully repair your issue. If you do wish to DIY, then you MUST obtain a service manual for your exact make and model, simply Google for one. Follow troubleshooting steps inside to find the problem.
Sometime under the inspection hatch, you may find a maintenance manual, in a plastic bag, not always though.

If you don't wish to DIY, then please call a professional, ask for a "Quote" and go from there.

Dishwasher will not start cycle.

OK so you have power, your door interlock switch is working, the intake solenoid is operating.

The issue is that the cycle does not start. This would indicate that your timer is not advancing. The timer tells the machine what to do, when, and for how long. It is not advancing and is stuck at the start of the wash cycle (fill with water). This is not a big issue as a timer is usually easy to replace.

I don't know what type of machine you have so I don't know if is a mechanical or a digital timer.

If mechanical dial type you can simply tun the dial and see if the cycles change. If so for sure you timer is the issue. You simply remove and replace.

Digital is harder to check but from what you say it is most likely your timer.

Shut the breaker off.

Remove the screws from the door frame and from inside the door. Gently remove the control panel. The timer is a simple unit to remove. Unscrew it and disconnect the power supply. Go get a new one from your local parts supplier. Installation is the reverse of removal.

Hope this helps, if so please rate this answer.
