Question about Dishwashers

1 Answer

The water is not flowing in to the dishwasher and it was previously working fine. There is condensation in the dishwasher but not enough water to melt the dishwasher cleansing pack (detergent). We have double checked the water line to make sure it was on and connected. The dishwasher has been working for years and this just started in the past couple of days.

Check the water inlet valve sediment-this can build up over time and cut down or stop water flow.

The dishwasher tablet is dispensing but is not dissolving or washing the pots. Can you tell what is wrong with it please


I would suggest getting some dishwasher cleaner and run a cycle to make sure you aren't having issues with water flow. Poor water flow built up by mineral deposits can wreak havoc on dishwashers. Wal-Mart carries dishwasher cleaner at a good price.

Just so you know, there may be a water pump issue as well. I would try the cleaner first and, if that doesn't work, then your water pump may be failing or you aren't getting enough water to the dishwasher itself.

Hope this helps.

What does error code 01 mean on my bosch silence plus 42 dishwasher mean?


The 01 error code means that the incoming water isn't coming fast enough. This could be a problem with the water pressure in the building, the fill valve or the water flow meter. Sometimes, this can be caused by something blocking the float from moving freely inside the dishwasher tub.

First check that you have sufficient water pressure in the house and that the shut-off valve is fully open. (If you have low water pressure, find out what is causing the issue.) Make sure that the incoming water pipe/hose isn't crimped or leaking. Next, flip your circuit breaker to off (or unplug the unit) to reset the dishwasher. Next you need to check that the fill valve is opening and closing properly; check that the wiring is good as well. If that is fine, then the problem is the flow meter or the circuit board that reads the sensors from the fill valve and flow meter.

I hope this helps.

How do I turn up the heat to remove most condensation after washing?


As part of the current ecological, energy-saving, environmentalist-wacko movement, dishwasher makers have cut back on the heating used to dry dishes. In fact in many dishwasher designs, they have eliminated the drying vent altogether, and instead use a condensate or condensation-drying system. In this system, the last rinse cycle is heated to a high temperature, to heat the dishes. The water is then pumped out, and the dishwasher shuts down. The theory is that water will evaporate off the hot dishes, condense on the sides of the dishwasher, and run back down into the sump area. Bosch was one of the first diswashers to do this, and it works fairly well for them. Other manufacturers have tried this, with varying results. Here's what you can do to improve drying:
1. It is imperative that you use rinse-aid (Jet-Dry). This allows more water to flow off the dishes and what flows off does not need to evaporate.
2. If the dishwasher has the options, turn on high-temperature wash and sani-rinse. This gets the dishes hotter for better evaporation.
It is possible that the heater may not be working at all, and that will cause poor washing performance and no drying. This is very rare in dishwashers less than 3 years old. Most likely, poor drying in a new dishwasher is caused because you are not using rinse-aid.

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.

Water leakage


Your not to clear about your problem. First I need more information. Is it a window unit, or through the wall or a split unit???

Usually when there is water leakage from a window or through the wall unit there could be one of two problems. One being a clogged area in the condensate pan not allowing the condensed water to flow out of the back of the uinit, or two, the unit is not properly tilted outward to allow the water to flow outside.

If it is a split unit and it was previously working fine then it most likely is stuffed with debris and should be cleaned out.

Good luck, I hope I have helped.

Aqua stop hose allows water through when disconnected from Whirlpool dishwasher but stops water when dishwasher demands water


looks to me like as if the direction of the hose is incorrect. Check to see if there is a direction of flow arrow on the hose and point that arrow away from the tap towards the machine.

When I start my dishwasher the check water light keeps comming on. Also the salt light so the machine does not go through its cycle. Can you please advise me the best course of...


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....

Dishwasher keeps stopping ever 5-6 mins.


Hi,
This sounds like a clogged up or failing water fill valve. Most likely the solution will be to replace the valve. Even if you unclog you may have hard water deposits inside that may be blocking flow and this could also cause the valve to stick open and cause a flood.

Noritz tankless water heater/dishwasher not hot enough to clean


You are doing everything you can. Your dishwasher probably isn't drawing enough hot water to activate the unit so opening the faucet and flowing more water will activate the unit. Just try to adjust the flow from the faucet to a point it, plus the draw from the dishwasher, will activate the unit. This will come with trial and error as I am sure you have already experienced. Also, open the dishwasher when it does get filled and check the water temperature. You might have the unit set at a low discharge temperature. Do you have a touchpad to control the water temperature adjustment?
