Whirlpool dishwasher will not fill with water

I have a built in whilrpool dishwasher. The water does not fill into it. I see 3 different silver-handled knobs under the sink, should they be (1) tightened, (2) parallel to the piles, or (3) perpendicular to the pipes. I hear it "working" but without water.

    Your help steered me towards the right direction. I was able to replace the water valve without incident, and my dishwasher runs like new. (not bad for a girl, eh?)



    Thanks a boatload!

Turn the valves to the left if there the screw in type or parraell if the quick open type the first thing a dishwasher does when you start it is drain for a few minutes then stops then fills with hot water run the water as hot at the sink as you can before starting the washer there is a float in the tub that can shut the water valve off if its not seated on the safety switch after the drain at the start of cycles stops then you should hear the water valve open and start the fill let me know and we will go from there

The dishwasher won't fill up with water


This can be caused by a couple different things. Either the water valves are not getting power or are faulty not allowing water to enter. Or if water begins to enter but quits, then the water level sensor could be bad. Lastly the timer on the control board could be faulty but can be tested with a meter.

Will not fill up with water before starting, it takes about 3-4 times brfore unit will run with full amount of water. loads take forever.


dish washers have a fill valve. the water supply line most likly has a net like filter that is stoped up with trash. Or fill valve is bad.
same thing happens to washing mashines. when they start filling up very slow you will TURN OFF water supply and diconect hose, look inside and there is the problem.

Can you be more specific? Does the dishwasher fill and then overflow?

Dishwasher filling correctly?


john, the dishwasher has a timed fill, make sure you are using 3/8 inch line. If you are using 1/4 inch, that would be your problem. The fill should be just below the heating element. If you are using the 3/8 inch line, the next suspect would be the fill valve itself. Make sure nothing is kinked, Catriver.
