    My Bosch dishwasher will not fill with water. I had a clogged sink that is now fixed but because water got underneath the dishwaher in the pan, the sensor won't let it work. How can I get to the water to remove it without calling a technician? My model is 5300

I was able to find out the problem. There was water at the base of the dishwasher that was hitting the switch which i guess is for flood prevention. I pulled the machie out and sucked all the water out. I assume you can just take the toe kick panel off and use a wet dry vac and do the same with out removing the unit,

Either your sump limit is defective or you have a leak if all is ok, check your door limit switch. found them faulty on a few occasions.

Wont fill with water

Other than the possibility that a shut off valve on the water line feeding the dishwasher was turned off for any reason, I had a similar problem on a different model and it turned out to be an electric valve that is under the dishwasher front kick panel that needed to be replaced. If it doesn't open no water can flow into the dishwasher during the fill cycle, 4c3igb

Won't Fill and will attempt to run wash cycle when turned off and door is closed

Hello ddux97 - I understand your dishwasher has power but will not fill with water. Here are a few simple troubleshooting tips that may help you resolve this issue:

• Make sure water supply is turned on. (First check for shut off valve under the kitchen sink).

• Check the house circuit breaker or fuse box, reset circuit breaker or replace fuse.

• Check inlet hose and make sure it's not twisted.

• Does float overfill protector (mushroom shaped object in tub) move freely? This is located in the bottom left front corner of the dishwasher.

• If this is a new install, then make sure the unit is not pressed up against the cabinet and the fill tube is not squeezed closed.

• Make sure the electrical wires going to the water inlet valve have not come off. It is best to turn off power to the dishwasher before reconnect wires, it doesn't matter which terminal is off both need to be connected.

• Make sure the drain hose is installed correctly. If the drain hose is routed under the floor as the dishwasher fills water can be drawn from the tub and appear to have never filled.

• Some models of Frigidaire dishwashers use a water pressure switch that will shut off the water valve if the tub over fills. These models do not have floats.

I hope these troubleshooting tips help you in some small way.

GE dish washer model gsd2600go2bb will not fill with water or just a little water,its not getting the water its suposed to.


This is due to one of two issues, either the water from the house is restricted or the valve in the machine needs replaced.

To determine which it is, you will need to turn off the water to the dishwasher, the valve for the dishwasher water is usually under the sink. Remove the hose/pipe from the dishwasher inlet valve. The image below shows the water valve as part 744, it is accessible on the front left corner once you take off the lower kick panel.

With the hose taken off of this valve (744) put the hose in a bucket or put towels on the end and turn the valve back on from under the sink. We want to make sure you are getting good water flow to the dishwasher, if this is slow then you will need a plumber to find out why the water in the home is slow if this is flowing good then you will need to replace the valve on the dishwasher (744), the part number to use when purchasing the new valve is WD15X10003

Kenmore dishwasher will not fill with water model no 630.1609406. It will run a full cycle but not fill. Water was temp shut off to replace kitchen sink and now dishwasher won't fill with water. No fill...

First, are you sure that the machine is not filling?
I go on calls all the time for this problem and it turns out than the machine fills but the wash motor does not run.This leaves soap in the bottom of the DW so it looks like it did not fill with water. This is a common problem in dishwashers that have not been run for a few months, and is quite common after a remodel. If it IS getting water, the motor is probably stuck. If it is Not getting water the first step is to locate the "over fill" float inside the dishwasher. This will be a round sort of mushroom looking thing on the floor of the machine near the door on the right or left. Make sure it moves freely up and down. It will only move about 1/4 inch but If it is stuck up, the machine will not fill. If float is O.K. then check the water source. Turn of water to DW. Remove the kickplate under DW door and disconnect the waterline from fill valve (should be on front left side of unit). Run waterline into bucket then turn on the water. If you don't get water call your plumber. If you get water then you need to check the fill valve. Connect a volt meter to the 2 wires on the fill valve. Start DW. First the diswasher should start draining, then it will start filling. At this point (a few minutes into the cycle) you should see 120v AC at the fill valve. If you do see 120v Ac, replace the valve. If you don't , then turn off the machine and check the float switch. This is located under the DW right under the mushroom thingy. The switch should have continuity when the DW is empty. If there is no continuity then replace the switch.

Water dose not go into dishwasher, it will keep running but no water is going into the dishwasher at all.

Make sure water is available to dishwasher. You will need to remove the front lower panel, and SLOWLY loosen the water supply line to the dishwasher. Place a shallow pan under the line to catch the water.

If water is present, turn off the water to the dishwasher, remove the line and check the inlet screen to the water fill valve - they can plug up and stop the water. If you don't have an inlet screen, then there could be an issue with the water fill valve itself.

Let's go back a couple of steps.....reconnect the water line, turn the water back on (check for leaks), and leave the front panel off. Now start the unit and listen for a click at the water fill valve when you start the machine. If it clicks then the timer is probably working, but the valve may not be opening. If no click then it's the valve or the timer, but most likely the valve.

These valves can be obtained froma local appliance parts dealer or on the web. Be sure to have your exact make and model number handy before you call or search.

most inlet valves are near the front of the washer. The kick panel at the front of the dishwasher should have several screws holding it, take those out ant the kick plate should come off where you can get to the valve. Look under the sink cabinet and you should see two vertical water lines and one horizontal line. The one horizontal line runs through the side of the cabinet to the dishwasher it should have a shut off valve on it close the valve and that will cut off the water going to the dishwasher. Have several towels ready because there will be water left in the line. Either unplug the dishwasher or turn off the breaker for the dishwasher before working on the valve Place a towel around the area of the inlet valve and disconnect the line coming to the valve. Should be a couple of screws holding the valve to the washer. Disconnect the electrical connections and remember where they go. Take valve out and reverse the procedure for installation.

Hotpoint dishwasher buzz when turned on an thats all it does

If the buzz stops when you open the door it could be the water solenoid valve which if it is not filling with water there is a 90% chance it is the valve. Turn off the water supply going the dishwasher under the sink or by the pipe. Pull the dishwasher out and unplug it if the hose length allows it to pull out. Put a towel or pan under the dishwasher hose connection disconnecting the hose on the dishwasher valve. Remove the racks and tip the unit forward with the unit unplugged and unbolt the valve where the water inlet is connected. Undo the hose clamp and wire connector. Check the valve or order a replacement and reinstall clamps and connectors. Be very careful when using the unit the first few times that no water leaks from hose connections by using a tissue touching the connections to see if water is present. Mold sucks so use a flash light looking in the front panel and tissue even after replacing the unit back in its final place.

Dishwasher won't fill on start

Check the following to address this issue.

Make sure you get water to the dishwasher. Check to see if the water shut-off valve (located under the sink) is open. If you get water to the dishwasher, but there is still no water inside during the fill cycle, the problem might be with a faulty water valve (located at the bottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, on either side), in which case replace the water valve.

Dishwasher doesn't fill

Dishwasher Doesn't Fill If a dishwasher runs but doesn't fill, either something is wrong with its water supply system or it is draining water too soon. 1) First make sure the water is turned on. Check the hot water supply stop valve, normally located under the sink. Open it all the way by turning it counterclockwise. If there is no reason this would have been turned off since the last time the dishwasher worked, go on to the next step. 2) Turn off the power to the dishwasher. 3) When the dishwasher is cool, look for the float inside the dishwasher --usually a small plastic dome or cylinder mounted inside at the tub's base, near the front. When you move most types of floats up and down, you can hear them click because they trip a lever (they are spring loaded). Lift out the float mechanism and clean around the float tube; many floats must be disconnected from below--to do this you'll have to remove the lower access panel. Rinse off the float, then replace it in the tube and be sure it moves up and down freely. 4) If you're experienced with minor repair work shut off the hot water valve to the appliance. Locate the water intake valve, behind the dishwasher's bottom front panel, disassemble the valve to reveal the screen, clean debris from the screen, and reassemble. If the screen doesn't appear to be blocked, call a repairperson (they will probably need to replace the water intake valve). 5) If none of this helps, call a repairperson. Any of several parts, including water inlet valve, pressure switch, and the timer or selector switch, may be faulty.
