Hello & Welcome to FixYa

If the water fills fine and completely, then it means that the circulation pump is bad however, as you have already checked the pump and that is working then test the float switch located inside the bottom front of the unit. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Hi- Yes, you need replace the entire dispenser. Viking dishwashers are actually Askos on the inside. It's not too hard to replace if you are handy and can get the part from Viking directly. Unplug the unit or shut off the breaker and remove the front panel by removing the screws around the outside edge of the door. I believe the dispenser is held on with brackets (it's been awhile since i replaced one on an Asko or Viking). It should be pretty evident how to remove it once you have it opened up. If you are unsure at all call Viking and they can give you the number of a Tech. Good luck.

check with whoever you order the latch from, usually parts are individual for electrical parts and never assume that the screw or washer will come with new one, save every piece.

Dishwasher door locked shut

Apply firm pressure to the door while you press or pull the release latch. The screws holding the latch assembly could have loosened. Tighten screws after you get it open.

Hello. I can help you. Since you already checked out the power, skip that step and look at the latch.

If your dishwasher doesn't work at all, check these:

Power from the house
Door switch
Timer or selector switch
Power from the house Is there power getting to the dishwasher? This can be difficult to test, because dishwashers are usually wired directly to an electrical circuit, rather than plugged into the wall. But at least check for a blown fuse or a tripped circuit breaker.

Door switch The door switch is important because, if it's defective, the dishwasher won't work at all. To reach it, you need to remove the control panel cover, or sometimes the interior liner of the door. If it's defective, you need to completely replace it.

Wiring Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the dishwasher, burns and breaks the connection. If that's the problem, the wires must be repaired/replaced as necessary. If that's not the problem, check the wiring to the door switch, the wiring between the door and the lower part of the dishwasher, and the wiring to the timer. Repair any broken, burned, brittle, or defective wiring, using the proper appliance-grade wire and connectors.

Timer or selector switch Although it's uncommon, the timer or the selector switch may be defective. If so, you need to replace the defective part, because neither of these can be repaired.

turn your selector switch to clean and then turn your thermostat to clean. the unit will latch the door and clean for a few hours until the unit cools off and the door latch opens. remove all your shelving before doing this. if you like a manual go to and download your use and care for free

Have a Viking trash compactor VUC181 that will not open. Appears latch is broke. How can I get it open?

I have had this same problem and found two causes. Latch was never the problem.
#1 - Ram not in full up position. To check remove top plate and attempt to run compactor - depressing microswitch when ram is at the top. If compactor will not run you can check the ram position by turning the primary screw drive with a ratchet wrench. When ram is at the top position attempt to open the compactor drawer. The stop microswitch seems to frequently bend out of alignment - check the microswitch positioning before resecuring top plate and adjust if necessary.
#2 - Can (or other debris) is wedged in between ram and drawer. Remove back cover and carefully inspect insides of the unit - use a flashlight. Pry out any debris that may impede the drawer from opening. Attempt to open the compactor drawer.

Good luck,
Jon B.
