When the Dishwasher is not filling in, you’ll need to check for the water inlet valve, the filter screen and the float switch/assembly. Also check for the float assembly inside the dishwasher. When water is filling your dishwasher, a float rises along with it. As the float reaches a certain threshold level, it shuts off the flow of water, thereby preventing a leak. Sometimes the float can get stuck in the wrong position in your dishwasher, and it can prevent your dishwasher from filling. Sometimes it can happen due to float valve and on other occasions due to float switch. Inspect the water hose coming to the dishwasher for any blockages.

If these are fine then it's due to Water Inlet Valve. Use a multimeter and check for the continuity on inlet valve. If you don’t get any value on the multimeter hen you'll need to replace the water inlet valve assembly.

Please post back for any further assistance.

I have 2652 Dom. Fridge. I push both the ON/OFF button and GAS button in so that it will run off land power. It imeadiately starts clicking. Plug and fuses are good. Any suggestions?

There is actually a bunch of things that could cause that.
Make sure you have a good full 12volts of DC(battery) power.

There is a chance that your actual button is bad and not toggling remove the eyebrow and check the switch for continuity. Unplug the board from the harness if its 4x wire auto/gas switch you should have closed circuit between the upper and lower wire when pressed...if its 6x wire auto/gas switch you should have closed circuit between center 2x wires from right and left when pressed and when released you should have closed circuit between top left and right and between bottom left and right. If they dont work right you can somtimes pop the switch apart and clean it or just replace the board.

?If you have the yellow epoxy filled circuit boards just change it out....once they do weird things messing with them is a waste of time! (Newer boards are green and the circuits are visable)

Since you have land power getting to the plug the next thing is make sure its actually getting to the circuit board. Best thing is unplug from 110 take the cover off and then plug back in and check with volt meter. Sometimes these boards do weird things if there is a loose wire or bad ground. Next thing you can do is unhook 12vDc and unplug 110vAc power, take each wire off one at a time, spray with electric parts cleaner and put it back on, if its loose crimp it a bit more and if its corroded scratch it with something(knife,file,steelwool). For sure clean up the grounding wires.  If this doesn't fix it, and the upper switch is good get a new circuit board(the lower one with the fuses on it).

f your washer doesn't seem to work at all, check these:

No power
Lid switch
No power Check to see whether power is getting to the washing machine. Is it plugged in? Has a fuse blown or is a circuit breaker tripped?

Lid switch If the lid switch is defective, your washer can't spin and may not function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washer to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.

Some machines have a special lid-switch fuse near the lid switch, inside the control panel. If this fuse blows, the unit won't fill with water until you replace the fuse.

My washer/dryer combo has 1 cord 220 yes it did work I washed serveral loads then I went to wash another and it want run fill up or anything

Check the fuse in the plug first.

If it is a good fuse, then you need to call an engineer as the problem is likely on the circuit boards inside.

There may also be a reset switch somewhere on the casing that trips if the dryer has got too hot. You just need to press it until it clicks to reset it.

Maytag_lse7804ace: washer won't fill with water. If I fill it by hand, the cycle works fine (until it gets to the rinse cycle, when it won't fill again).

Hello John,
The most probable reason the washer is not filling is because of a blown fuse that is part of the lid switch asm. By UNPLUGGING THE WASHER and removing the 2 INNER screws on the the control panel and the control panel can be rotated down to see the fuse in the lid switch asm. Here is where the fuse is on the switch asm. its circled in red 11_4_2011_1_39_54_am.jpg

Timer runs and have replaced fill-valve. Motor does not run and does not fill with water.

there is a possibilty the the door lock mechanism may be faulty.if you have a control board this may also be a problem. fill the dishwasher by hand with a few pots of water and put it in a wash cycle and see what happens.also make sure the power is connected properly and you do not have any loose may have to replace the motor.also check and make sure you water connection is good and you have water supplied.there have been people to get bad fill valves even thought they are new.

Bosch Dishwasher continuous fill/drain

Have same problem with 2 second cycling. I resolder at the point of heater relay. Thought I had solved the problem of running forever on 1. Now have this "new" problem that you have described.

Keeps shuting off

There are 4 common trouble makers to consider.
One is the switches; it can open circuit and stop the washer. For some reason Maytag has seen fit to discontinue the lock and latch as a complete assembly and will only sell it as individual parts new.
Second is water pressure. If the water pressure is low/poor, the washer will start to fill and then shut off. Check and clean the fill valve entrance screens and also check for any washer screens on either end of the fill hoses. There is a low water pressure fill jumper kit assembly part# 12001482.
The third is possibly the most common trouble maker for this type of a complaint. The fuse blows on the motor control board. This board can be found on the front bottom on the right side. Take apart info. The motor control board must be replaced when the fuse has blown. Most times now the motor control board is replaced with a motor kit - the motor kit Motor/control conversion kit.
The fourth is a bad start switch, sometimes the contacts in the start switch will arc and burn causing starting up problems.

Thank You for contacting

Hot water will not cut of

Hi, If the washer is unplugged, does the hot water shut off? If not, then you need to change the water inlet valve.
If I can help you further, please let me know.
