    Yes Tannerdise, I have one on order. Increasing the water inlet time will be a temporary fix to keep the wife happy until new part gets here. Do you know how to program the pcm for the temporary fix??

If you're not getting enough water, your water inlet valve is most likely the culprit.

After pumping out all the water, the machine just keeps on pumping and not re-filling with clean water.


see this causes and use the common sense.God bless you
If there's no water entering your dishwasher, check these: Water-inlet valve Float switch Water-inlet valve The water-inlet valve lets water enter the machine. If this valve is defective, you need to completely replace it. It's usually located behind the lower access panel on the left or right side. It's the device with the main water line (usually copper) from the house, a rubber tube to the dishwasher, and two wires attached to it. Float switch The float switch is a small electrical switch that's located right below the dishwasher "floor." Above the switch, on the inside of the dishwasher, is a plastic cylinder that floats up as water fills the dishwasher. If this switch is defective, or if the plastic float gets caught or trapped in the raised position, the water can't enter the dishwasher. If the float switch is defective, you need to replace it. To determine if the float switch has failed, watch the part testing video at the bottom of this page.

How do you adjust the fill level for a geberit fors inlet valve


A "Geberit FORS Inlet Valve" is not a dishwasher part. It is a fill valve made for a toilet cistern. You adjust it by removing the valve, removing the blue "locking clip" on the lower part of the valve body, then rotating the valve body to make it longer/shorter (and hence raise/lower the height of the large float body on the side of the valve). Once done, reinsert the lock clip, and reinstall the valve in the toilet tank. You can see how to adjust it at this link

D1876 Asko dishwasher doesn't fill. It runs fine if I manually fill the unit with a couple of pitchers of water. Likely culprits seem to be a faulty water level sensor or water fill valve. Any...


Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

Based on your description and provided the dishwasher is indeed 1) an Asko D1876 and 2) not filling with water...It sounds like a faulty fill valve/water valve unfortunately.

First though, you can perform a diagnostic/fault trace program by following the steps below. You should hear the valve starting once the unit has started filling with water.


You'll need to be familiar with the control layout for the test to begin. This is how the buttons/display is identified in the diagnostic...

Now you can enter the fault trace by way of the following sequence....

macmarkus_288.jpg


Obviously based on the instructions if you push S3 the valve should open and allow water into the tub, this image below indicates the normal water level to look for when filling in the normal cycle NOT FAULT TRACING...Fault trace will fill until you stop it.

macmarkus_289.jpg


This unfortunately is common with Asko built dishwasher`s, but it can be fairly easily repaired with a little direction/know-how.

**First turn off the water and the power to the dishwasher...safety first**


You should only need to remove the toe panel/kick plate at the bottom and of course turn your water and power off, undo the water line at the valve,

i.e.

macmarkus_290.jpg



...remove the two torx screws ( large arrow ) and then the delivery hose at the back of the valve ( small arrow ) and install the new one.

The new valve is part # 8801351 and available at on-line parts depot "repairclinic.com" for about $170USD last time I looked.

Let me know what you find and I'll try and help you move forward from there...you may opt to call in a pro but that's up to you.

I'll watch for your reply.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

I have An LG LD-14ATI Dishwasher, it starts, pumps water in, shows up with E1 in display and pumps water out. Can you please help and tell me what is wrong and why it is doing it. thank you


Hi there,

Well It is probably Faulty Water Inlet Valve

Faulty Water Inlet Valve
The water inlet valve is the device that meters water from the supply lines into your wash tub. On domestic washers, there are two lines, one hot the other cold. These valves are susceptible to mineral build-up and sediment deposits. There are two common failure modes:
Water drips or slowly enters the machine when the timer is in the off position.
When water continues to enter the washing machine when the machine is in the off position, this is an indication that the water inlet valve is not completely shutting off. The solution to this problem is to replace the water inlet valve

Failure Mode One: Valve will not open.
If you can verify that the solenoid on the valve body is receiving the requisite voltage and the valve will not open, then it is faulty. Since the solenoids operate independently, it is likely that one side of the valve will work and the other will not. This can produce strand results such as a very hot wash when warm is selected (due to no cold water). Or the reverse in that the wash water is cold when warm is selected. If mineral or hard water deposits are a problem, you may witness a substantial increase in the time required for the tub to fill. This is caused be a decrease in the flow ware of the valve.

Failure Mode Two: Valve opens but will not close.
This is verified by a valve that allows water to flow into the tub even though no power is being supplied to the solenoid. This one is usually quickly diagnosed when the machine begins to overflow and the power plug for the washer is disconnected from the wall. However, this will not stop the water from flowing into the machine. The water must be shut off at the wall. As with the previous failure mode, the variant of this failure mode is that it may take the valve a while to completely bridge the flow of water after the power has been removed from the solenoid.

How to Diagnose?
There are a couple of ways to diagnose a faulty valve. However, there is a simple test that one can perform that will usually let you know if the water inlet valve is faulty.
Scenario:
When set to cold wash and rinse, the unit will not fill. When set to warm wash and cold rinse the washer will fill with hot water only and will fail to rinse. This is a common scenario where the cold water side of the valve does not appear to be contributing to the fill, but the hot water side does. This symptom could be easily reversed where cold water is being supplied, but never hot water.

So, how can the problem be determined? It is as simple as switching the wire harness plugs on the hot and cold side. In the example above where the cold water is never being supplied, the symptoms would be the opposite when the wiring harnesses were switched. So the machine would produce only produce cold when warm or hot is selected. No water should be present when you select cold. This verifies that the timer, wiring and switches are all in working order. Assuming this tests checks out, you simply need to replace the water inlet valve.

Faulty Water Level (Pressure) Switch
The water level (pressure) switch detects the hight of the water in the wash tub by the pressure it creates. Much like your ears feel greater pressure when you dive into the deep end of the swimming pool, this switch senses the increase in pressure from water added to the tub. The size of the load you select determines how much pressure is required before the switch tells the water inlet valve to close.

If voltage is still being supplied to the water inlet valves and the tub is full, then the water level switch is likely faulty

Faulty Water Level Switch Supply Tube
The tube that connects the water level (pressure) switch to the outer wash tub must have pressure integrity for the washer to be able to determine the correct water level. There are four possible problems that can prevent this tube from performing its duties.
The tube can become clogged with lint or debris. This can prevent water from entering the tube and therefore not apply pressure to the switch.
The tube can become cracked. Much like a straw in a soft drink, if the supply tube has a crack in it, it can not send pressure to the switch.
The tube has become kinked. If the tube becomes kinked, it can not send pressure to the switch.
The tube has become disconnected from either the tub or the switch. If either of these occurs it can not send pressure to the switch.
To prevent leaks, it is wise to replace a water level switch supply tube that has become brittle. Failure of this tube during operation of the washer could result in a sustained water leak. Post comments if you need further help or information........

Good Luck!!

Kenmore dishwasher is not washing properly and leaving dirty water in the bottom when it is finished, Can i fix it?


If your washer is overfilling, check these:

Water-inlet valve
Water-level switch
Water-inlet valve A defect in the water-inlet valve may mean that it's no longer able to shut off completely when the electricity has been turned off to it. If this occurs, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub. In time, the water may accumulate substantially. If this happens, you need to replace the valve.

Water-level switch A defect--or an obstruction--in the water-level switch may mean that it can't tell the water to shut off. So the machine overflows. This switch senses the water level in the clothes tub. It's usually a diaphragm device with a small, clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level in the tub increases, the pressure on the air in the tube increases. When the pressure reaches a certain level, it activates the switch, shuts off the water, and signals the timer to begin the agitate cycle. You can either clear any obstruction in the tube or replace the water-level switch.

Asko d1876 dishwasher


The F2 lights blink due to a water senser in the compartment where the motors are located. Remove the bottom kick panel and other covers to access this area of the unit. Unplug the unit before working in this area as wires are abundant. Check the pan to see if water is present. Dry out the pan with a towel and then maybe a hairdryer to clear the F2 alarm. The real questions is what caused the water to be there. Start a cycle and watch to see if there are any leaks on the inlet water line. If not, let the unit run and see when water enters the pan. If it enters during the washing cycle, a gasket leak is likely. If it enters during the drain cycle, perhaps a drain hose is leaking.

The machine is not taking any water in


First check the water supplies at the back of the machine.
That is either a problem wit the inlet valve , or with the water level switch.

See the following suggestions from Repairclinic:

There's no water entering the machine If there's no water entering your dishwasher, check these:

Water-inlet valve
Float switch
Water-inlet valve The water-inlet valve lets water enter the machine. If this valve is defective, you need to completely replace it. It's usually located behind the lower access panel on the left or right side. It's the device with the main water line (usually copper) from the house, a rubber tube to the dishwasher, and two wires attached to it.

Float switch The float switch is a small electrical switch that's located right below the dishwasher "floor." Above the switch, on the inside of the dishwasher, is a plastic cylinder that floats up as water fills the dishwasher. If this switch is defective, or if the plastic float gets caught or trapped in the raised position, the water can't enter the dishwasher. If the float switch is defective, you need to replace it.

Miele G638 dishwasher.


Hi John I have the same problem, the manual says that it is because the water level is to low, this is checked by opening the door after the machine has stopped filling and before it starts to wash, the level should be 4mm above the main plastic filter ring, the level has two settings, these can be adjusted by pressing the start button and the On/Off button at the same time, release the start button and turn the control to economy 45,if the start light does not come on the level is set to normal, to increase level press the start button again and the light should come on, this will give you an increased filling time. it did no help me but it may help you. good luck
