Make sure you get water to the dishwasher. Check to see if the water shut-off valve (located under the sink) is open. If you are getting water to the dishwasher, but there is still no water inside during the fill cycle, the problem might be with a faulty water valve (located at the bottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, on either side).


To access the inlet valve remove the lower panel located beneath the door. The panel is usually held in place with two screws either above or below the panel. It may be necessary to first open the door to the dishwasher to reach the screws over the panel, then close the door to remove the panel. The water inlet valve can be identified by the water hoses connected to it. One hose will lead from the valve to the pump/motor assembly in the center of the dishwasher. Check that the hoses are securely connected to the valve and that there are no kinks in the hoses which could restrict water flow. There are two wires (four, if it has two solenoids) connected to the water inlet valve. Label the wires and connections so that you can properly reconnect them later. The wires are connected with slip on connectors. Firmly pull the connectors off of the terminals (do not pull on the wire itself). You may need to use a pair of needle-nose pliers to remove the connectors. Inspect the connectors and the terminals for corrosion. If either is corroded they should be cleaned or replaced. Use a continuity tester or multimeter to test for continuity. Set the multimeter to the ohms setting X1. Touch one probe to each terminal. A reading of infinity indicates a bad solenoid that must be replaced. Different brands and models will have various measurements, but the valve should show some resistance if it is functioning properly. If your valve has two solenoids, test the second one in the same way as the first.

**(((If the inlet proves to be functional with no leakage, this will lead to the control. its has failed in this case. replace it asap)))

SOURCE: the water does not go into the dishwaser

I would check the water inlet solenoid first to see if it's getting 110v. If it isn't it could be a bad timer/control switch. If it's getting 110v then the solenoid is probably bad and not opening to allow water through.

Check the door interlock switch. They normally run the L1 line through the door switch and if the door switch shorted, the dishwasher appears dead. Good Luck, Eric Campion

Broken dishwasher?


The dishwaser has a Anti-Flood device (a polystireene block) on the floor of the dishwaser that activates a micro switch if any small amount of water is on the floor of the washer for any reason. This switch automatically puts the washer on PUMP OUT mode and does flash the error mode and does not work. Find out what causes the water on the floor and that will be the reason for not working...

The dishwaser takes a very long time to run thruogh is cycles.


on many models, the timer will not move if the water is not up to temp. be sure that you run hot water in the sink until it gets hot before you start the dishwasher.
are your dishes coming out clean and hot? if not, your heating element may be faulty. this is used for drying, but also to maintain water temp. during the cycle. a bad heating element will certainly make the cycle take forever, if it ever gets done. good luck

Open the dishwaser while still filling now keeps going to error


After reading a few of the other Haier models troubles, I pulled the unit out and tip it at 45 degrees backwards for around minute. Water pored from the back of the unit, once cleaned water up reinstalled unit and all seems to be back in working order.

Dishwaser Fills But Does Not Run


You may have a problem with the spray arm being blocked or the water valve may not be letting a sufficient amount of water through to get the spray arms activated. If the dishwasher is still in warranty schedule service before it runs out. GE customer service number is 800-626-2000 model and serial numbers and purchase dates are helpful. Ask specifically if any kits are available to fix these problems and if GE is willing to make any concession toward this repair. Good Luck.

Dishwaser working,but not cleaning dishes properly


unfortunately, there is no way to run it and see what it is doing. the only way to check if the spray arms are working properly is to put your ear up to the dishwasher while it is running. you should hear the water spraying along the door panel on both the top and bottom ( Note: some dishwashers run the spray arms simultaneously and sometimes they run at seperate times ).
another thing to check is your water temperature. the water must be 120 degrees in the dishwasher in order to clean the dishes properly. also, if your kitchen sink takes a while to get hot water, you will need to run the sink first prior to starting the dishwasher. I have to apply this method at my house because it takes a while for the water to get hot at my sink. if I run it without starting the sink, the water in the dishwasher is 80 degrees or so and will not clean properly.

Your machine possibly has a stuck water inlet valve. Water pressure is meant to shut the valve and electricity is used to open it.
