Hi, Welcome to FixYa. Based on your description that the dishwasher is indeed filling with water but not circulating, It sounds like a busted wash impeller within the main motor/circulation pump. First though, do you hear a quiet sound ( it will be super quiet if the wash impeller is broke so you have to either get right down with your ear to the bottom or run it with the door open by activating the door switch with a screw-driver ) of a motor once the unit has completed filling with water ? If so that is a tell tale of no wash action yet the motor runs, hence broken impeller. If you don't hear anything it may be a wire come off the main motor/circulation pump...but not likely. Let me know what you find and I'll try and help you move forward from there. Good luck, Macmarkus :)

I have been in my house for 7 years and only ran the dishwasher about 4 times. Decided to use it today, nothing but a loud noise, no water. Is it clogged? If so, how do I fix it? It was brand new with the house. Had't turned it on in 2 years. Help!

Cycle starts but no water comes in.just gets hot and steamy


It can be due to a block in the inlet valve , a block in the pressure pump or the spraying arm. You need to check from the inlet to see the water flow into the unit. check also with a meter to see if the controller works to the cycle and there is output. If not the water within is heating and so there is steam . restoring the water flow will make the pressure pump to spray hot water. Check the pump and the spraying arm.

My Bosch dishwasher is taking hours (at least 3 - maybe more) to complete a cycle. There is gummy, yucky stuff building up inside - sorta pinkish brownish. Could the water not be hot enough? A couple of...


if your on demand heater is one of the small ones that mounts under the sink, it will not flow enough water to fill your dishwasher. the dishwasher is waiting for the water level to fill before it starts washing. your bosch will heat its own water. hook it up to a cold line ahead of the water heater so that the fill valve is fed with full pressure. the residue sounds like detergent build up. when you get the water issue resolved, run a few cycles with no dishes and no detergent, on the highest temp setting. add a cup or two of white vinegar or dishwasher cleaner ( order online or get from an appliance repair store) through it. Dont forget your dishwasher has a filter in the bottom under the spray arm that needs to be cleaned periodically. if you dont clean it once a month it will get all kinds of nasty stuff built up in there.

My dishwasher is 12 years old. We have hard water but we use a water softener. I have to rinse the dishes completely clean before I wash them. Is my dishwasher just getting old?


A couple things can be happening here.

1) Make sure the holes in you rotating arms are not clogged up with food particles. If they are clean them out so water will flow freely. Then run an empty dishwasher with a cup of white vinegar, this should clean it real good.

2) The water may not be getting hot enough. The water is heated with the element at the bottom of the dishwasher. A simple way to check this is by stopping the dishwasher at mid wash cycle and touch the water at the bottom of the tub. If it's not very hot, than the element is bad and needs replacing. Just weigh the cost of replacing the element to the cost of a new more efficient dishwasher.

Hope this helps.

Does not clean


Hi

If your dishwasher is cleaning poorly, check these:

Water-inlet valve Most cleaning problems are caused by the dishwasher not getting enough wash water, so the water-inlet valve is often to blame. This valve is usually at the bottom left or right of the dishwasher, behind the lower access panel. It's the device with the main water line from the house, a rubber tube to the dishwasher, and two wires attached to it. 

When a water-inlet valve is defective, you may hear the sound that's usually referred to as "water hammer." If the water-inlet valve is defective, you need to completely replace it. 


Internal filters Every dishwasher has some type of filter to keep large food particles and foreign objects away from the pump assembly:

  • Most modern dishwashers have self-cleaning filters that don't need any routine cleaning.


  • Some have filters in the bottom of the dishwasher that you need to periodically clean. You don't need any tools to remove the filter, and cleaning it is easy. Consult your owner's manual to determine which type you have and its maintenance requirements.


If your filter is clogged, it may be causing the cleaning problem. 

Drain valve Some dishwashers have a valve (or gate) that should open only during draining. If debris lodges in the valve, it can't close properly, so water drains out during the wash cycle. Most dishwashers drain into the garbage disposer. If yours does that, listen for water flowing into the disposer during the wash cycle. If you can hear it then, the drain valve may be clogged.

Spray arms There's a spray arm at the bottom of your dishwasher--it may have a tall spray tube mounted to the center of it. There may also be a spray arm located directly beneath the upper rack of dishes and/or above the upper rack.

If debris is blocking the holes in the spray arms where the water comes out, it could cause cleaning problems. Regularly inspect each of the spray arms and clean out the holes as necessary. 

Water temperature To get the best cleaning results, the water entering your dishwasher needs to be hot enough. Try running the hot water in your kitchen sink for about 30 seconds before starting the dishwasher, to pre-heat it. Also, if your dishwasher lets you select a higher wash or rinse temperature, try that to see if it helps. 

To check the temperature of the hot water that comes from your kitchen faucet use a waterproof thermometer. If the water isn't 120 degrees Fahrenheit, your dishwasher may have trouble getting your dishes clean. You could increase the temperature of the hot water to the whole house--and therefore the dishwasher--by adjusting the hot water heater thermostat.

Warning! To lessen the risk of scalding, don't set the hot water heater temperature higher than 120 degrees Fahrenheit. 

Detergent cup Dishwashers don't perform their best if detergent is introduced only at the beginning of a cycle, so add detergent to both parts of the cup.

Dishwasher won't wash!


check the sump screen on the bottom of the tank for clogs.also check the wash arms

Dishwasher


  This dishwasher does not feed water to top and bottom arms at same time.  It starts with bottom and then after awhile it switches to top and then cycles.  If water comes out arms but arms won't turn,  check all holes in arms.  It's the water spraying out these that causes arms to turn.   If arms spin freely by hand,  it's a plugged arm or holes in arm or insufficient water in tank. 
  Being that it only sprays 4 inches suggests a water level problem or possible mineral build up restricting flow.
