The most common problem is with the water valve. It may be defective, and hence not letting enough (or any) water in.

Dishwasher Trouble No Water entering Dishwasher

1 Answer

When i start my dishwasher it sounds like it is filling normally then error lights 1 &3 (3h&9h) flash rapidly and water begins to drain away



This indicates an error with the pressure switch and indicates that it is jammed on full. First try switching off ther AC power to the washer and letting it stand for 30 minutes. Then switch back on the AC power and see if the error is still present. If it is then the pressure switch will need to be replaced. The pressure switch is how the machine determines how much water there is in the machine and if the switch is indicating the machine is full it will automatically pump and empty as soon as new water enters the machine.

No water seemes to be entering the machine. It


it could be the inlet valve. that is definitely a DIY job. but first i would check out the float inside the machine. if it is stuck in the up position, no water will enter the machine. it will assume that it is already full of water. look for a small hat or cone on the bottom. make sure that it slides freely up and down. if it was stuck up, you will have just freed it and solved your problem. good luck

Water not going into dishwasher


Hi,

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.
Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using "Fixya".

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:
