KENMORE ELITE DISHWASHER MODEL 665.12793K311 STOPS BECAUSE THERE IS NOT ENOUGH INCOMING WATER, IS THERE A CLOGGED FILTER


Check the shutoff vale under the sink where your dishwasher water line is connected to ensure it is full open. Also, check for a kinked water line to the dishwasher.

LG Dishwasher water flow is weak coming out of the lower spray arm. No water coming out of the upper spray arm. I changed the water inlet valve, and there isn't any difference.


There is a possibility the water pressure itself is low from the kitchen line or the dishwasher is set at incorrect water pressure setting and does not collect enough water based on the flow time of inlet valve. If you hear the wash motor cut in then there is not enough water in the base to start pumping it to through the arms.

Hi, if your unit is getting good water pressure then the problem is going to be your flow meter which is the device that measures how much water is coming into the unit. If it doesn't detect enough water coming into the unit, the dishwasher will hault and give you check water light error. When the error comes up look at the water in the bottom and see if you have enough water in the bottom for a cycle. If not then your flow meter is fine and your unit truely isn't getting enough water which means that either your house isn't giving good water pressure to the dishwasher, or the electronic water valve that connects to the water line from your house is bad and needs to be replaced....

Drain is plugged, leaking water


Hi


Dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. Check the drain hose for any visible clogging, remove if present. If no visible lint is present then remove then turn off the dishwasher and remove the drain hose and check for any visible clogging. If still not visible then the drain filter or drain pump is clogged and you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump.


Please note that dishwashers don't drain out the complete water such that heating element doesn

WATER DOES GO IN BARELY. MOST LIKELY STUCK WITH THE STONE FROM PIPES. WHERE IS THE INLET FILTER TO CLEAN IT.DISHWASHER GOES THRU CYCLE BUT WITH NOT ENOUGH WATER DOES NOT CLEAN .


the water inlet valve has a screen on the water line connection side. it may look clean but most likely the residues have entered the vaslve and is restricting how much water can enter the unit. most units need to have the water fill to just below the heating element.
the water should just touch the element. if it does, water is fine, then it might be a circulation problem with the water pump being plugged, check to see if the pump is plugged.

My electrolux 6115 dishwasher will not drain, it beeps constantly. when i reset it nothing happens


Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. Dishwasher not draining properly or not draining at all issues can arise due to different reasons. Usually, these issues are related to kinked hoses, knocked out disposer unit (if connected with the dishwasher drain hose) & clogged drain pump & filter.

Also note that dishwashers do not drain completely after a finished cycle and this is normal. Dishwashers are designed to leave some water in the unit to ensure that the heating element doesn’t overheat. If you suddenly begin to experience a large amount of water being retained in your dishwasher, you have a problem. Some of the most common reasons include that the drain hose isn’t working properly, the drain pump isn’t working correctly, or possibly there is a plumbing problem in your home’s drain lines.


First check whether the drain is not clogged or blocked and the line is not kinked. Check all the hoses for blockages & also clean the air gap. Has the disposer been replaced recently? If so, chances are the knockout is still in place. Simply remove the drain hose from the disposer, and knock out the plug. If the disposer has not been replaced, try removing the drain hose from the disposer and use a wet-dry vacuum (prepared for water, of course) to **** any water (and hopefully anything else) from the drain line. Then reconnect the hose, and test the unit. If you have checked the air gap and the drain hose and can’t locate the problem, then it is an issue with the drain pump of the dishwasher.

Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks
