Where the water connects to the machine, there is usually a little in-line screen at the water valve. (usually bottom, front, left behind kick panel) If it isn't clogged, the valve may be bad.

Fdd914 dishwasher error code A10 appears and its not in the booklet


Hi, the interpretation for error code A10 is: A10 = fill solenoid valve triac closed/open circuit - check valve/ operation - machine drains until level switch resets + 30"

Now, to try and solve the problem yourself: Turn off the water supply to the dishwasher & remove the hose, Run the machine for several minutes in a normal position. Turn the machine off, reconnect the fill hose, turn the water back on then turn the machine back on.

If this doesn't solve the problem, then you'll need to call a service person.

My Samsung dishwasher has a error code 4E after i start it up could you please let met know what this means thanks


Most common error codes that are caused by installation errors are:
  • 4E. If your dishwasher is displaying error code 4E, it can be caused by the water supply valve. The water supply valve may be closed, or not fully open. Most water supply valves are not frequently opened or closed. Because of this, they may be difficult to turn. To make sure this is not your issue, turn the supply valve to the fully closed position, clockwise, and then turn the valve to the fully open position, counterclockwise.
    • Check your water pressure. Your dishwasher requires a minimum of 20 psi and a maximum of 120 psi.
    • Water filtration info.

There is no water getting into my dishwasher.


Check the valve where the water enters the washer. The valve can stick with hardwater build up and the solenoid will not be able to open and close

E4 error after attempting to fill and get to temp


This is what I found for the E4 code...hope this helps...and thanks for rating my effort...The Fang.


Machine won't fill or won't fill high enough(LX18, LX30 display shows "E0," "E2," "E3," or "E4")

1.Low water pressure — check for clogged hose strainer; check that site water pressure meets minimum flow pressures.
2.Make sure probes are clean.
3.No water pressure — main water supply valves may not be working.
4.Drain valve open - turn machine off to drain machine, then on. Repeat twice (this assists in clearing any drain valve obstructions). Wait for machine to reach READY mode and press WASH. Slowly open door several seconds later and note water level. Close door; 30 seconds later, open door slowly and check that water level is the same as it was. If not, repeat the
OFF-ON procedure.
5. Delime machine.

Hi, it sounds like there is no watewr supply to the machine. Try turning the valve closed, and then opening it again. If that doesn't work, turn off the water and disconnect the supply hose. Then, with a bucket handy, turn the water back on slightly to see if water is coming through the end of the hose to the machine. Also check the gauze inlet filter for blockage with grit.
Let me know how you get on before rating the solution!
Thanks, D.

Cycle will not start


sounds like your machine is not taking in any water at all, which is the first thing the dishwasher wants to do on all programme settings.The constant whirring noise you refer to will be the water valve trying to take water into your machine.As yours isn't filling in the first place the programme cannot progress without water and it will just sit there whirring.Anyway, to resolve this matter I would check the fill hose which goes from the back of machine to your cold water pipe in your kitchen/utility, in case somebody has turned off supply.where the flexi hose meets the copper supply pipe there should be a thumbturn shut/open valve, turn this 90 degrees or a quarter turn and if you here a rush of water for a split second then you have fixed it.At this point try setting away a programme to see if water is going into dishwasher. If not have a bucket ready and unscrew the flexi hose altogether to make sure water is travelling past shut/open valve.If not you need a new shut/open valve.If water is able to pass this valve reconnect to dishwasher turn shut/open valve a quarter turn to open flow of water again,test machine on any programme again ,if it fills then your sorted, if not it must be your dishwashers internal water valve that will need replacing.Not a major job (located behind fill hose) but make sure electric and water supplies are off first before dabbling and write down your machines make and model number before shopping for part. GOOD LUCK.

Bosch dishwasher SHU9922UC


Sounds like you already know how to fix it. The inlet valve is only held closed by water pressure...if you have low water pressure it could be causing this. Its more likely just a bad fill valve though. The water inlet valve is accessed by removinf the lower kickplate and the sheild behind that. Then all you have to do is remove the water line from the valve, remove the 2 screws holding it and pull it out far enough to disconnect the 2(possibly 3) wires and the fill hose. Make sure to mark where your wires go, if you hook it up wrong it could continue to fill and overflow. Hope this helps!

Water filling does not stop


Water supply to the dishwasher is done through an electromagnet valve,loocated at the water pipe's enterance to the machine. A defect in the valve may mean that it's no longer able to shut off completely when the electricity has been turned off to it, and the valve may leak and drip water into the tub.You can easyly open the valve and clean it (from scale or other dirt). Be aware you should disconnect the power cable from the machine before doing it !!!!! and as well to close water main tap to the machine. In case cleaning doesn't help, you should replace the valve. Good luck !!
