Water won't flow into the dishwasher

It depends how old your dishwasher i. If it is more than 18 months old and gets heavy use then grease and food debris can block the internal pipework. You can manually fill the dishwasher and use a dishwasher cleaning bottle that can be bought from most supermarkets. Run it on the hottest setting possible with nothing else in the dishwasher. Also remove all the filters and strainers from the bottom of the dishwasher and wash these by hand using hot soapy water. Do not put back into dishwasher until the cleaning cycle has finished.
This may work but if the pipes are too badly blocked then the dishwasher will need to be stripped and the pipes cleaned by hand

Water did not drain from the bottom

Hello Cheryl, There are a couple of possibilities. When the dishwasher drains the dirty water it is a time based function. This leads me to believe it is a blockage or partial blockage in the drain hose.
Here is an example. (If your dishwasher drains into your garbage disposal) washing dishes you put scraps into the disposal and forget to turn it on after you are done. The disposal is filled with scraps this restricts the flow of dirty waterfrom the dishwasher. If the flow is restricted less water is being drained per second from the dishwasher. This is why the dishes still looked clean and there was still water in the bottom of the dishwasher.
(if your dishwasher drains into a drain pipe) there is blockage or partial blockagein the dishwasher drain hose. if the sink drains slowly the blockage is in the main line
Hope this helps

When we start a cycle to wash a load of dishes, it goes through the cycle but doesn't fill up with water. The filter on the water inlet is clean with no blockage.


Here is a tip that will help you to find out why water will not come into the dishwasher...

I have an Electrolux ESI 6104x. Regularly just after starting the dishwasher as it starts to fill for the first time the water inlet cuts out. If you turn the water off at the mains disconnect the inlet...

Disconnect the fill pipe from the back of the machine and you should see a small mesh strainer in side the dishwashers inlet valve. Check that this is not dirty - to clean it pull out the strainer and rinse under the tap.

I have just purchased a second-hand Sercon Quickwash benchtop dishwasher. Is it possible to get operating instructions for this? The type No. is CB 2405050-6 and serial No. is 8350144.

Congratulations, you've just purchased one of the most indestructible dishwashers ever made. I ought to know, as mine is 35 years old, used at least twice daily and still going strong after only the addition of a door switch pushrod seal, a heater element and a water level switch in that time, although now on its third plastic door. They were often used commercially in labs for cleaning test tubes, etc. as the components were able to take the chemicals and punishment. Alas the plastic doors eventually crack around the hinges and need replacing but are no longer available so treat yours tenderly because if it cracks and can't hold water your dishwasher will be a boat anchor. You don't need an instruction manual, although I have one. Just use Finish dishwashing powder(no I don't own shares) and no rinse aid (the rinse aid dispenser is at the back and a pain to fill anyway and not necessary because you're using Finish remember?). Click on the water/waste pipe connector to the sink tap fitting, turn on the cold water, fill with dishes, sprinkle a capful of Finish powder over them, close the door and turn the timer clockwise ONLY to the Start position (about 1 o'clock) and wait about 20 mins til its finished (timer at about 11 o'clock) Then open the door to let out steam and aid final drying. All this with the toggle switch on 'normal' (and power plugged in and on of course dummy), although you can use 'economy' position for a few dishes or drink glasses, remembering that dishwashers will eventually turn glassware milky with that blasting action (ie not mum's best crystal) The Sercon Quickwash is a mighty mouse but noisy as it's not insulated around the single skin stainless steel cabinet and if the usual suspects aren't careful with bones, pips, stones, etc the waste pipe can become blocked, usually at the fitting near the tap and the cycle may stop with water still in the dishwasher. If it does, undo the hose and check for any obstructions, clear and restart. Farewell dishmop until the fateful day that plastic door cracks.

Dishwasher leaks at start

Is the washer not "over filling" due to the water fill vacume pipe and micro switch that shuts off the water once the correct level blocked or restricted due to fatty residue? This could also be one of the washer pipes clogged up and increasing the pressure in the fill tank.

Dishwasher does not fill with water

First (I know this sounds bad but it does happen)check to see the tap is turned on (I have had where the owner thinks the tap is on and asked if I am nuts turns out the cleaning lady switched it off) If so turn off the tap and remove the inlet hose from the machine,there should be a filter in the unit where the pipe screws on this is more than likely blocked if so clean and replace pipe etc check on the tap side sometimes there is one there aswell clean if dirty,if there is still no water then we need to go deeper,the pressure switch could be fualty or there may be water in the pressure tube wich will tell the timer that the machine is full etc,I would however suggest you check the above first if you do not come right let me know and we can then investigate further.

BEKO D3422FW Dishwaser stays on the pump out cycle.

I can confirm Solution #2.

This usually happens whe you have a blockage in the waste pipe. For some reason, once you've cleared the blockage, the dishwasher doesn't detect that water has now passed through the system, even if you send through more water via filling the base (I did this about 4 times totalling 24litres of water and it still didn't reset).

Tilt the dishwasher back (I only had to tilt it about 30 degrees), this resets whatever switch it is that turns the pump off and allows it to fill with water.

Dishwash cycle takes too long.

I am a recently retired appliance engineer of 20 years no that won't help, dishwashers only use one pipe cold water, check fill pipe for kink or low water flow rate filling up,if no problems then check heater element for open circuit, then check for any blockage with water outlet / filters and pump etc well somewhere to start to be going on with, if any of above helped rate me please,
