My dish washer wont fill with water


there is a float, usually at front left side inside dishwasher, that may be stuck..possibly an utility holding it up, or the fill valve is stuck. When dishwasher calls for water, it fills until this float rises to proper level and shuts the valve off at proper level. If it sticks, water will shut off at improper level.

LG drains and fills at same time.


This is caused by the " the flood" circuit at the bottom of the dishwasher that detects some water leak. Once this circuit detects any water on the bottom of the washer, it immediately switches the pump out circuit on. It consists of a polystyrene float coupled to a micro switch. You need to dry the bottom and then check for leaks (hose or hose clamp).

What type of dishwasher do you have? Has your kitchen floor flooded? If it has. The tray under dish washer isn't water tight. Moisture creates some unusual problems. Some of newer dish washer the there control panel under the top of door this also create problem especially if the switches are on the top of the door. Another moisture problem. I have repaired a new Electrolux dish was three times in less than 6 months. The floor would flood from the Maytag side load washing machine. The Madam of the house didn't tell me that the washing machine flooded the kitchen floor. No window in the door and sometime fill water solenoid would stick and fill the tube. When they open washing machine door, 12 gallons of water would spill. So I fix both of them. GB...stewbison

Hello Gerard,

This is an overfill 'fault' generally caused by one of the following:

1. Faulty or incorrectly installed flow-meter
2. An airlock in the fill chamber
3. Faulty float switch (less likely)

There are some simple checks you can do to determine the cause of the fault and hopefully solve the problem without replacing any parts - no tools required at this point.

First, open the door, pull out the lower basket and locate the float. This is the 'mushroom' in the base of the washing compartment:

belectric_200.jpg
With the washer empty of water, make sure the float is fully lowered. There should be a gap of 2-3mm between the float and the base of the washer and you should be able to lift it about half an inch / 12-15mm. When you lift it, it should fall when you let go. If it's raised when the washer is empty, it should not rise again on its own when pushed down.

If the float seems to be working correctly, the controller is receiving erroneous signals from the flow-meter that the washer is full or overfilled. This causes the washer to pump out - then resume the fill cycle because the water level is too low to start the wash. If this is caused by an air-lock, there is a simple trick to clear the air-lock and, therefore, the fault.

1. Start a wash cycle and keep you finger ready on the power switch on the control panel.
2. As soon as you hear the pump start during the fill cycle, interrupt the cycle by pressing the power switch to the off position
3. Wait for about 10 seconds, then switch the power on again.

The machine should resume filling rather than pumping out. Keep your finger ready on the power switch and repeat steps 2 and 3 until the washer is filled and the washing cycle starts. If you can get the washer to run a cycle using this trick, you may not need to do anything else, but you may need to repeat the procedure described above at the start of the next few cycles.

If the washer does not resume filling and continues pumping when you switch the power on again or you have to repeat the procedure above at the start of every wash cycle before it will run, you will need to check the flow-meter and, most likely, replace it.

I'm happy to provide step-by-step assistance with checking and replacing the flow-meter if required, but please check the float and try the simple trick above first, then let me know if you need further assistance.

Hope this helps.

Regards,
BElectric

No water is coming in the dishwasher. I can hear the water running, but the water is not coming into the dishwasher


If you can hear the water running - but it's not filling, you most likely have a drain problem, which is being stuck open. Usually the motor kicks in and either pumps the water through the wash arms (during wash cycle) or through the drain (during drain cycle) the switch that/or flap could be stuck on the drain and it is pumping it out the drain all the time instead of the wash arms.

You have a float valve that works much the same way that the float in your toilet tank works, either your float is leaking, (full of water), or the valve actuated by the float is bad.

Washing machine will not fill with water just aggitates


Check the float bulb in the bottom of the tub and the switch below the tub. It may be stuck in the up position telling the computor that the water has filled. The timer is not supposed to advance to another process engagement until the water floats the bulb and changes the bottom switch position.

GE Potscrubber Disshwasher GSD700G, wont cycle


Most washers do not fill they spray the dishes. When enough water has accumulated in the bottom a float switch shuts off the water and turns on the pump to remove the water. If the pump motor does not remove the water the cycle will not continue but the timer will. There may be something clogging the pump and resulting in an overload condition for the motor. This would account for the smell. A pump may turn freely when you spin it by hand because you cannot spin it fast enough by hand to determine if the pump is obstructed. Does the cycle drain the water? If the cycle stops and there is water in the bottom not being pumped out then you should look at the pump and the motor to determine problem.
