Question about Dishwashers

1 Answer

Sounds like dishwasher is running but no water coming out (there are no broken pipes or leaks)

My dishwasher seems like it runs, except no water is coming out. I'm not sure how to take the filter that is at the bottom out, or to see if there is a blockage in the line.

Thanks for any help you can offer.

Dishwasher is just under 10 years old. Not overly used for its years.

I had the same problem. The motor is working (humming) and my dishwasher goes through the whole cycle without water. I googled it and found it on a website. Sorry I don't remember which website. Basically, it said to put some hot water in the bottom of your dishwasher and add some citric acid. I added 2 small packets (2 oz each) and filled the bottom of the dishwasher with hot water until it covered the motor or the drain of the dishwasher and left it overnight. The next day my dishwasher started and ran perfectly fine. That was over 4 months ago and I have not had any problems.

    I had no water coming in to my dishwasher. Filled the bottom of the tub with very hot water as suggested, worked like a charm, almost immediately. Thanks.

My dishwasher will run and seems to clean but the panel is flashing. There is water sitting at the bottom and the panel shows red. Not sure how yo reset.


Check the filter and if equipped check the float in the bottom of the washer itself. Some of these circuit board will go bad and still function to some degree, but check the simple things first

Dishwasher is working fine however at the completion of the cycle and when it sits idle it seems to be flooding from under the filter area.Flooding is slow however but causes headaches when it breaches...


Your water fill valve is slowly leaking water into your dishwasher. Your need to turn off the house water valve, to your dishwasher, and see if the problem stops. If it does then replace the dishwasher water fill valve. If it doesn't stop, then you have water coming in through your drain lines, which is highly unlikely. You will have to check to make sure your drain line has a high loop in it, or install an air gap. Good luck, Appliance Specialists

Soap stays in disperser. Water is 142 degrees, dispenser opens.Not overloaded and filter under bottom wand is clean. Model is 16342


Either:
  1. check if the bottom rack is inserted correctly. Try turning it 180 degrees and run the cycle. Make sure nothing obstructs the dispenser.
  2. the water does not get into the dishwasher open the dishwasher 3-4 times during cycle, if you don't see any water at least once - check water valve, water level float and water pressure.
  3. the pump is clogged - there is water, the motor will run but no water is circulated. Check pump filters, check chopper and impeller.
  4. motor in main pump is not working - could be caused by something stuck on the impeller or chopper or could be a problem with the motor itself or control board. Check if line voltage is coming to the motor during wash/rinse cycle.
Good luck,

This is a very good web site. Thx for pulling it


It is possible the check valve is sticking causing sour water to come back into the washer. The check valve is located where the drain line connects to the back of the dishwasher. Also make sure the drain line is higher than where the line connects to the drain under the sink. Most washing machines have a loop built into the line but it helps it to drain better when the line is higher. Try hooking the line to the top of the cabinet under the sink if possible.

Dishwasher water draining????


Make sure the odor is coming from the dishwasher.
Pull the bottom basket out and check for food that might be stuck in it. And check for food particles in the bottom of the dishwasher.
Then pour some baking soda into the dish liquid compatment. Run it through a complete cycle. This should deodorize and clean the dishwasher. i hope it helps. Please remember to leave rating.

Doesnt clean dishes, seems to be no water coming into machine


There should be about 2 inches of water in the bottom of the DW.  If it is filling but not washing the pump may be bad.  That might explain the loud noise (motor bearing).  I assume that the detergent cover is opening but no water is being sprayed to dissolve it.

Water not going through spray arms


1.does motor run? no. replace motor. 2.open door and leave the bottom rack inside dw.spin the spray arm underneath the bottom rack by hand. it should spin freely without binding. if it doesnt spin freely take out the bottom rack and try again. if it does spin freely then your bottom rack is laying on your sprayarm preventing it from rotating. 3.you could also not be getting enough water into your dw.

High pitched whining noise from bottom of dishwasher


the arms are only turned by water coming out of them thro angled jets, they are not electrically driven. the noise will be coming from the circulating pump, probably one of the bearings. no cure except to replace
