Dish washer runs all cycles but no water entering dish washer


Make sure you check that the water is turned on to the dishwasher.
Check for a kinked or squished fill hose. If all else fails its most likely you need a new fill valve for your dish washer.

Washer wont fill enough water


Washers have a (vacum pipe) that feeds a micro switch. The air pressure in the vacume pipe caused by the water filling the washer activates a vacum switch when the correct amount of water has entered the machiene. This vacum pipe could be partly blocked or the vacume pressure switch contacts burnt of faulty. This can be tested by physicaly blowing air by mouth into the pipe and you should hear the switch click.

Not enough water is dispensed during fill cycle. This causes top washer not to have enough water volume to move top washer wand.


First check that the fill float switch is working.

Next that the fill valve doesn't have crud that limits water flow. They MAY have a timeout to prevent overfilling if fill is too slow and that could cause the priblem if fill valve is partially blocked.

Water pressure?


Mom...not true. The water fills the machine which then uses its own pump to spray the dishes with the water/detergent. If your dishes are not getting clean, use the recommended amount of detergent. Hard water will require a spot treatment like JetDri or a product formulated for it. Oh, and if the water temp is less than about 125 (if you can keep your hand in it from the tap...it isn't hot enough) you should use the water heater. Oh, and make sure the spray arm holes are clear!

Dish washer will not fill with water


First I'll check is there any power to the water inlet valve item #19 if there is power then the water inlet valve is defective, if there is no power check the door magnet Item # 13 I found the magnet itself got loose inside the plastic housing and cause the problem as the door is not closing at all. If you need further help please email me at dickson@lau.com
God Bless have a nice day. Dickson
