Water drains back into dishwasher from sink or disposal


You've got a broken piece of glass or something holding the drain valve open.
Solenoid operates the valve to drain water from dishwasher into drain line.
When power shuts off to solenoid...valve closes.
If valve is blocked by a piece of glass or toothpick or a sliver of bone...it can't close and draining water from disposal or sink can back flow into dishwasher.

I had a piece of glass caught in mine.

Hope this helps...

My dishwasher was working fine until yesterday, now it doesn't seem to use all the soap, I tried 2 times and there was still soap left over.


Hello there:
It doesn't get the dishes clean dot_lineone.gif 1. No water
Make sure you get water to the dishwasher. Check to see if the watershut-off valve (located under the sink) is open. If you get water tothe dishwasher, but there is still no water inside during the fillcycle, the problem might be with a faulty water valve (located at thebottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, on either side), inwhich case replace the water valve. There are also screens and filters that need to be cleaned to ensure proper operation so please check these as well

2. Not enough water
If there is not enough water, the dishes would not get cleaned. Thiscould be caused by a partially closed water shut-off valve (locatedunder the sink), or a faulty dishwasher water valve (located at thebottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, on either side).

3. Clogged spay arms
There is usually two, sometimes three spray arms in a dishwasher. Makesure there is no debris blocking the holes inside each spray arm. thee are also screens and filters under these arms that may need toi be cleaned

4. Water temperature is too low
To get the best results, the water has to be at 120 degrees Fahrenheit when entering the dishwasher.if not increase the hot water heater temp

5. . Smoky film on dishes and glasses
This problem occurs due to excessive calcium build up inside thedishwasher. Try cleaning you dishwasher using a dishwasher cleaner.There are a few out there, we recommend Dishwasher Magic®.

The first cycle water is not hot - all other cycles are hot - the water in the sink next to the dishwasher is not???


Where does the dishwasher connect to hot water? If it is connected to cold it must be changed. From your description, the water is coming from a long way off and has to warm the pipes as it travels to the dw. The dw should have a heater to bring the water up to temp after filling before it runs, if this heater is not working, the first run will be cold and the next hot because you have drawn enough water through the pipes to bring hot water to the dw.
1. Change where the dw gets hw.
2. Run hw in the sink before allowing the dw to start (if connected to same line).
3. Fix the dw's water heater.

Three possible fixes. Good luck.

My dishwasher doesn't seem to be getting water in hence dishes not being washed. motor is on. checkedunder sink . what does 'valve on' mean exactly? i don't see an on off valve. please help!


Follow the hot water fill pipe from where it connects to the dishwasher back to where it connects to the wall. (probably under the sink) Most of the time, you will find that pipe attaches to the same hot water (on/off) valve as the hot water side of the kitchen sink.

Confirm that valve is open (righty - tighty, lefty - loosy (open)) If the valve is open at the wall end then:

The next most common cause of no water entering the dishwasher is the solenoid valve on the dishwasher that is electronically opened when the dishwasher needs water to enter for wash or rinse. This valve is located just pass the connection where the fill pipe connects to the dishwasher and will have two wires connected to it.

Please post back here what you find or have more questions, OK?

I am getting an IE error on my control panel. It seems to start ok but once it starts to fill with water the IE error comes up and the machine shuts off. How can I fix this?


You do not list the manufacturer and model number, but it sounds like you own an LG dishwasher.

The IE error indicates that the water is not entering the dishwasher or it is entering too slowly / with little pressure. It is important to check the water inlet pipe (hot water connection under the sink) all the way to the dishwasher. Check for any kinks/blockages after you confirm that the valve at the sink is fully open.

Please report back here with what you find. If you still have problems, there are other things to check, including the solenoid valve just past the connection of the water inlet.

Dishwasher not filling


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.
