Look for a styrofoam spacer under the float switch (the mushroom shaped thing in the bottom.)

My dishwasher(samsung DW7933LRABB) wont fill, it will drain if i put water in the tub. supply is on.


You either have a bad water valve, or a bad case-brake assembly (in which case you should have an error code or blinking light on your console).

Whirlpool Dishwasher Model Du850SWPB3 Changed out Water valve, float switch, Still doesn't fill with water. D/w runs in all cycles , just NO WATER.


Hello,

What ya need to check is for power coming into the water valve from the control board by using a mulitmeter set to measure ac volts and when the dishwasher is running...during the times the unit is supposed to fill their should be power into the water valve.

If ya do not have power into the valve the control is going to be the problem,if ya do indeed have electric power into the valve during the fill times ya need to check the house water supply and make sure GOOD water pressure is available at THE VALVE

We just installed a new kenmore dishwasher yesterday. Model 13242 It has been running for almost2 hours and is still on the washing cycle--no water in it however--is this normal? I'm in a bit of a panic as...


THAT IS NOT NORMAL!!!!!!! A normal wash and dry cycle will take approx. 2 hours in length including drying cycle.
You should see that water has been present in the machine within the first 2 minutes of the start of the wash cycle, you should also be able to hear the water entering the wash tub.
The fill valve or water supply seems to be the issue, if the water doesn't enter the tub then the controller won't proceed witht the wash cycle. Double check your water supply tube / hose to make sure there is water present at the connection to the dishwasher.
GOOD LUCK !

Dishwasher runs about 3 hours


First check the inlet water flow into the machine. There is a strainer attached to this. If it is clogged water filling into the machine will be delayed!

Also check whether using the same wash program as you were doing earlier. There can not be any other fault aprt from this. i presume the wash quality is good.

Heance clean all the water inlet and outlet for free flow.
