My dishwasher will not fill with water


There can be multiple reasons why the water is not entering the line. First thing to do is to disconnect both hoses from the dishwasher and place them in the sink. Turn on the water slowly and make sure that both hoses release water into the sink. If the water flows, get a plastic drain snake and attempt to push it into the water intake lines from the rear of the dishwasher to clear any clogs that may be in the lines. Look at the rotary head in the dishwasher for hole clogs and remove any debris found. Reconnect the water lines and make sure that all inlet valves are open. Turn on the water and attempt the fill again. If this does not work, then you will have to disassemble the rear panel of the dishwasher and look closer at all waterline connections.

Kenmore 17621 model--wife says it's making all the right noises,but no water entering.removed bottom panel-no filter visible.obstruction in water supply line is my guess.


Hi,
Open the door and look for the water level float in the bottom of the dishwasher.
Make sure there is nothing stuck under the float holding it in the up position.
Wiggle the float up and down to make sure it can move freely and then run the dishwasher again to see if it fills with water.
If the float is not stuck up then chances are you will need to replace the water inlet valve.
If you know how to use a volt meter you could check to see if voltage is at the valve during the fill cycle. If there is voltage to the valve but you are not getting any water then you know the water inlet valve is bad for sure.
I find that 90% of the time I need to replace the water valve on dishwasher that no longer fill with water and the other 10% of the time I find the water float is stuck.

Dishwasher makes squeeling noise when filling with water


if the dishwasher is only filling when u hear the noise it could be a bad water valve or if you are lucky it could be the screen in your water valve is dirty, however if it is filling and washing at the same time and you hear a noise like sqeeling it could be your motor, before u replace the motor. check the water valve or screen on valve may be dirty

Dishwasher wan't fill with water


The water valve may look fine but the solenoid may not be opening to allow water in. You said that everything else works fine except no water supply to the dishwasher. This sounds like a bad soleniod valve. Check for continuity on the valve with an ohms meter after you start it. Be careful.

Dishwasher water level low and making strange noise.


Hi, This d/w is designed to run with low water level. The noise you are hearing might be the wash motor. Do you know if this has the single or dual motor setup?
The dual motor style are not the greatest. The wash motor is known to go bad. You can remove the housing below the spray arm and see if anything has lodge in the in impeller. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Kenmore dishwasher 58715142400 fills but doesn't wash


Motor has gone out..just like mine...Make sure u have voltage going to the motor, (disconnect the plug from the motor) and use an electric meter to make sure you have voltage going to the motor. If so the motor has either gone out or has been blocked by something! If no noise except clicking then motor has gone out. Looking at about $150 for motor.

Bosh dish waher


Does it make the same noise when it's just filling or just when the motor starts? Usually just filling the dishwasher opens a valve and doesn't run the pump. If it makes noise during filling the valve may be getting hot and shorting, or may have a loose connection, or air may be in the water supply line causing the valve to bounce. If it takes a long time to fill the filter may be clogged.
