No water Thanks for the try, but I have already replaced the inlet valve. Still no water. I also checked and confirmed that I am not getting 120v to the inlet valve and/or float switch.

Check your heat dry options I have seen them short out a lot and that will prevent the water valve from getting 120v.

If no water is entering the washer, first check to make sure the water supply is actually turned on! I've had to service customers who had the cleaning people or other maintenance folks turn off the water. Next, check the float switch inside the tub. This tells the computer that there is no water in the tub and when the tub has enough water--If something gets trapped underneath, such as a fork, spoon, knife, or anything, it will lift the float and the washer will think water is already inside and not fill. It is a round, "flying saucer" shaped object located at the bottom of the tub, on either the left or right side. Gently lift up on it and CAREFULLY listen for a soft "clicking sound". The click is from a tiny switch on the underside of the washer. If the float is clear of objects, next check underneath the washer at the inlet water valve. This is an electric valve identified by the water line attached directly to it. There will be an electrical connector plugged in to it, and when activated, will have 120v applied. Remove the kick panel(cover at the bottom of washer under door) and carefully remove the connector from the valve. Set a wash cycle, then, using a voltage meter, check to see if 120v is present at the valve. If 120v is present, and you're sure the water is turned on, the valve is most likely defective. If there is *no* voltage at the valve, then the problem is most likely a broken wire or the main control board has a bad relay switch which is failing to send the power to the valve at the proper time.

Kenmore dishwasher water stopped coming in

Check the valve under your sink. If that's on go to the dishwasher. Remove the bottom panel. Locate the water inlet valve (usually on the left hand side. Pull the two wires from it and put your voltmeter on it. Start the dishwasher and watch the meter. If it shows 120v then the valve is bad. if you don't get 120v, the board or timer is bad.

I have a tricity bendix dh101 stopped working cold water not going in to manchaine many thanks if u can help

Possible that the INLET valve is faulty /clogged or there is no voltage to switch ON the inlet valve.
So measure the voltage at the inlet valve, also check if the inlet filter is clogged.
Check the water pressure at the inlet to confirm, remove the line from the inlet valve and confirm the flow when activated.

If you have already checked the water line for clogs and its clean then its the water inlet valve thats causing this problem. Please try to clean the inlet screen for any clogs and hope you understand if cleaning won't solve the issue then recommended repair is water inlet valve replacement. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

I'm trying to get my GE GSD1200G00WW to work. When it is put on the wash cycle, I can hear the pump running but the tub does not fill with water. I checked the float and it seems fine. Water valve...

Confirm 120V across the water valve terminals in a couple of minutes into a wash or rinse cycle. (when you turn it on at the beginning of the wash cycle it will drain first, and then will energize the water valve to fill up.)
If there is 120V across the terminals - it may have:
  1. faulty solenoid coil - check for continuity, replace valve if none
  2. clogged filter or nozzle inside the valve. Try cleaning the filter, replace valve if it didn't help

Dishwasher is not filling.

Hey I dont know the brand at all but I can tell you the first thing that I try on any dishwasher is to check the shut off valve (usually located under the sink) to make sure you are getting water up to this point (maybe it even got shut off) otherwise you could find the inlet valve which im assuming should get 120v during fill. If its getting 120v and you are getting water through the shut off valve then I would replace the inlet valve. If you are not getting power down to the valve then I would check the float switch make sure nothing is stuck underneith it. Other than that you would probably be looking at a control board issue but keep in mind ive never worked on this particular brand just trying to help you out.

All filters are clean, but water will not come in

Hi, Check the float in the front corner and make sure it moves up and down freely. Also, you can check voltage at the inlet valve. It should get 120V at the start of the wash cycle. If there is voltage, the inlet valve will need replaced. If there is no voltage, the float switch needs tested. It is usually the inlet valve or the float.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Dishwasher tub will not fill with water

If there's no water entering your dishwasher, check these:

Water-inlet valve
Float switch
Water-inlet valve The water-inlet valve lets water enter the machine. If this valve is defective, you need to completely replace it. It's usually located behind the lower access panel on the left or right side. It's the device with the main water line (usually copper) from the house, a rubber tube to the dishwasher, and two wires attached to it.

Float switch The float switch is a small electrical switch that's located right below the dishwasher "floor." Above the switch, on the inside of the dishwasher, is a plastic cylinder that floats up as water fills the dishwasher. If this switch is defective, or if the plastic float gets caught or trapped in the raised position, the water can't enter the dishwasher. If the float switch is defective, you need to replace it.

Can hear motor running but nothing happens in dishwasher

Hi, you need to test voltage to the water inlet valve. If you are getting voltage (120V) replace the valve. If you are not getting voltage check the water level switch located in the front corner of the tub.
If I can assist you any further with parts or part #'s, please let me know.

No water entering

Check to see that the water is turned on to dishwasher. If so then your fill valve is likely not working. To confirm check to see if you are getting 120v ac to the fill valve with a multimeter with the dishwasher trying to fill. If voltage is present then the fill valve is bad.
