HI. This is a water inlet valve issue. I recommend testing this device. it may be faulty.replace asap if the valve dose not pass the inspection stated below.

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. You may need to use a pair of needle-nose pliers to remove the connectors. Now, inspect the connectors and the terminals for corrosion. If either is corroded they should be cleaned or replaced.
Electrical Testing procedure:


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 solenoid is working properly.

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

Check the beginning of the hose for debris. If not that, take the front bottom panel off and remove the IN hose from the pump. There is either a stuck plunger or a clogged screen.

    Lie on the floor and remove the screws holding the front bottol panel. The pump is the thing that has the hoses going into it.

How to lengthen the water supply hoses. There to short to reach sink.


Buy a flexible braided hose for mains pressure. They come in different lengths.

Fit one end to the water outlet tap and for the other end you will need a fitting you can attach the dishwasher hose to that any plumbing supply has. I don't think you can buy a flexible braided hose that will fit to your water supply tap on one end and then straight to the end of the dishwasher hose on the other. You will need the adapter between the 2 to hook the fittings up. Use plumbers tape on the fittings when installing them for a good water seal.

Or you can just get a plumber in who will fit everything up for you and will also probably use a flexible hose to plumb in the water supply.

How do you install a new drain hose on samsung dishwasher


It's a fairly big job. You have to pull the dishwasher out from under the cabinet. Then remove the left-hand metal panel. You should now be looking at the case-brake assembly. Reach inside the dishwahsher and turn the water-inlet bezel counter-clockwise to remove it. Now you can tilt out the case-brake assembly and loosen the clamp that holds the drain hose in place. Pull the hose off (have a towel or Sham-Wow ready to catch the water). Then you have to remove the clamp or hose-restraint at the back of the dishwasher. Thaen you can pull the drain hose out and replace it.

What causes mould in dishwashers , cleaned it yesterday mould was thick in it what's causing this


The mold is caused by food particles not getting fully pushed through the drain hose when the dishwasher drains. The drain hose is corrugated, and bits of food particles can sometimes collect on the ridges and in the valleys of the corrugation. Given the right circumstances, this can cause a gradual buildup inside the hose, just like cholesterol in our arteries. The presence of moisture and lack of sunlight in the hose allows mold to grow on these food particles. You will want to remove the grates at the bottom or back of your dishwasher (usually removing just a couple of screws will do it) and clean with bleach water (a cup of bleach in a gallon of water) as far down as you can reach. After you have done that, replace the grate, put the rest of the bleach water in the bottom of the dishwasher and run a regular cycle (no dishes, please!). Why not just put the bleach water in and run the cycle? Because that will kill the mold, but will not remove its build-up. You want to remove the build-up first, as far as you can reach---it's easier to remove when it's live. Then kill what's left in the drain.

If your problem was serious enough, you may want to replace your drain hose, too.

Dishwasher won't fill with water


Hi

When the Dishwasher won't fill you'll need to check for the water inlet hose, the water inlet valve and the float switch assembly. When the water fills your dishwasher, a float rises along with it. As the float reaches a certain threshold level, it shuts off the flow of water, thereby preventing a leak. Sometimes the float can get stuck in the wrong position in your dishwasher, and it can prevent your dishwasher from filling. Sometimes it can happen due to float valve and on other occasions due to float switch. Inspect the water hose coming to the dishwasher for any blockages. If the hose is not clogged then check the water inlet valve for any clogs, if the water will not even fill for few seconds then certainly the water inlet valve is bad and should be replaced. You can also use a multimeter to check continuity on inlet valve. If you don't get any value on the multimeter then you'll need to replace the water inlet valve assembly. However, if the valve is fine then the float switch assembly should be replaced. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

How do you check the water valve and where is it located


Just follow the inlet hose in the machine. Check the other end. You will reach the valve. Generally it is located close the hose only.
