Question about Danby 17 in. DDW1802W Designer Series Built-in Dishwasher
Cycle is not kicking in properly. No water in system. Pipes do not seem to be frozen (cold weather up here these last two days). I saw the response to this problem where I should look for the valve under the kick plate or the fill valve and cannot find either. My dishwasher has a stainless steel tub. There is a filter in the pan and a salt container but I see no fill valve. Behind the kick plate is a box where the power is located and the source for the water but I still don't see the valve. Please advise. I was hoping to hold off on redesign of kitchen until summer. Thanks!
I had a repair tech (highly recommend for Metro Milwaukee WI repairs- All City Appliance LLC 414.243.1579) who figured it out. He clarified, it is not a 'fill switch,' but an 'overflow float.' It is the white styrafoam ball looking thing- you have to pull the little black cap/ cover off the drain to let out 'overflow' water that has collected in there, resulting in only the drain pump running and NO water entering system- which seems to have been all of our problems. It was surprisingly easy, and I know what to do in the future thanks to the great explanation by the repair tech, and very reasonably priced too!
You have to pull the unit out, and the float flow is located on the left, bottom side of the dishwasher. Works like a champ now! (I actually have the built-in 18 inch)

With the cycle not working, it could be the timer not functionally properly as it controls the cycles the dishwasher goes through. The water valve is located near the pump of the dishwasher. To get a diagram of your unit, please refer to this website http:///www3.sears.com and have our database search up your model number. Djmanus, the noise could be a motor related problem, but I cannot be for sure without being at the unit and diagnosing the situation.

Sorry if this comment occurs twice. I'm having some problems with my mouse.
I have a Danby model DDW1805W but I found that my problem of not getting any water into the machine was also a "stuck" impeller blade on the pump. We have hard water and the dishwasher had set for several months without being used. After cleaning the inlet screen and replacing the water inlet valve, the water would still not go into the machine from the kitchen faucet.
In order to get to the impeller blades, one has to turn the machine on it's side (watch for spilled water when you do this), remove the single screw that holds the pump/motor assembly in place, remove the two hoses to the pump/motor assembly so you can pull the assembly out a little, then turn the impeller blades to free them. Note that the old hose clamps will probably have to be replaced after removal because the original clamps are a one-use "pinch-type."

There is 2 pumps, one for drain and one for recirculating the water. I found the large pump in center bottom area used to recirculate water was stuck. I had to remove hoses and using a screwdriver turned the impellor. It finally got free and easy to turn. Poured some CLR in housing let it set for 1/2 hour. Re-assembled unit and works fine. You need to buy special hose clamps to reassemble because original clamps are crimp style and need to be twisted off.
