My idesit IWB5113 just keeps filling after starting the wash cycle, normal it inject some water then starts washing, my machine just keeps filling and doesn't seem to start the wash cycle, please help


It is possible that the water level sensor has failed and so does not detect to stop the inlet valve from filling.You can remove and check this level sensor normally it can be a damaged diaphragm and replace the same so that the program proceeds to the next stage to start the machinetips to see working of the machine;http://www.espares.co.uk/advice/washing-machines/a/7/1392/how-a-washing-machine-works.html

My dishwasher does not start up when the dial reaches wash. I open the door and water is in but it never washes. never had the problem before. It is an old portable, but did work so good! What happened? Do...


It sounds like it could be caused by the fact that the heating element has failed so that the washer will not proceed with the wash program until the water is up to the correct temperature. You should be able to tell if the element is getting hot. You could try manually putting in hot water before the washer fills up with cold to see if the wash then proceeds.

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 !

Our LG LDF7920st dishwasher (6 months old)makes a whistling noise


Hey, consider the float assembly!

We bought this dishwasher and ran it for the last 1 1/2 months and it made a grinding and whistling sound from day one (it's supposed to be nearly silent in its operation). Turns out the drain pump was cutting in while the machine was still filling, thereby emptying the wash tub of any water. Then, when the cycle proceeded to wash, the dumb thing had no water and made a horrible noise. So I had to pitch in at least 2-3 litres of hot water, and then it worked quietly! Had to do this every time there was new water intake.

After working with the repairmen - four visits later, we isolated the float assembly as the problem and they set about replacing the part. Turns out the two parts were markedly different. LG HAD INSTALLED an older model float assembly at the factory and it was the problem. The replacement part was the correct float assembly and things worked perfectly after that - thank goodness. No more babysitting the dishwasher.

Don't let anyone tell you the motor assembly needs replacement. I have seen that cop-out 'fix' all over the web. But use deductive reasoning to find out where the problem is in the cycle, and explore this option first - it's a quicker and cheaper fix than replacing the whole motor assembly.

'Mr. Float' as he is now called works like this:
-expels any residual water in the tub from the last wash
-intakes water for the wash or rinse
-whirs 2-3 times prepping for the cycle
-begins to wash, quietly
-expels at the end of the wash or rinse.

He used to:
-expel residual water
-intake new water for wash or rinse
---drain pump would cut in WHILE still filling
-machine would whir once, realize it didn't have enough water
-perform a brief top-up intake shot
-begin to wash and whistle and GRIND (this is where I would have to add the water)
-expels water from wash or rinse, and start all over again.

It's a good dishwasher and it will work, but the right model parts have to be in place!

Dishwasher not spraying/pumping water in wash cycle


If your dishwasher is filling, draining and the heating element is working then the wash pump motor has probably failed.

You have not provided the manufacturer and model number, so I have no way of knowing if your dishwasher has a separate drain and wash pump motor.

Dishwasher will not run after filled with water


The float switch in the tank is bad,also if water only trickles in your fill valve is going bad which will not let it fill all the way to start wash cycle. Fill tub with pot of water to raise float, if wash cycle starts,replace fill valve,if not,replace float switch.

Bosch SHU9915UC Dishwasher - wash cycle won't happen


hi there your dishwasher has gone into flood protection mode ie. water has leaked into the base and activated the float switch.

to try and locate the leak tip your d/w back to drain the water from the base then remove both side panels and start a program to see if you can see where the water is leaking from, being careful not to touch anything while the d/w is running as live parts are exposed

hope this is of some help
