Question about Dishwashers

1 Answer

I have an Electrolux ESI 6104x. Regularly just after starting the dishwasher as it starts to fill for the first time the water inlet cuts out. If you turn the water off at the mains disconnect the inlet pipe (spilling a bit of water in the process) reconnect the inlet pipe and turn the water back on the dishwasher fills and runs perfectly. This fault used to happen occasionally and now happens regularly.

Disconnect the fill pipe from the back of the machine and you should see a small mesh strainer in side the dishwashers inlet valve. Check that this is not dirty - to clean it pull out the strainer and rinse under the tap.

No water flow Electrolux Dishwasher pld285rfc1


The water inlet valve is used to fill the dishwasher with the proper amount of hot water and is controlled by the timer or electronic control. The valve will be located behind the lower access panel and will have two wires attached to it, an outlet hose to the tub and a hot water inlet from the household supply. If your dishwasher does not fill then you should first check the inlet supply to verify that you have enough water pressure and that you have power going to the valve during the fill portion of the cycle. If these conditions are met then the valve is defective and should be replaced. If you do not have power to the valve then you should look at the float switch, the timer or electronic control or the door switches as a possible problem. All of the electrical checks can be made with a multi-meter. http://www.partselect.com/Repair/Dishwasher/Will-Not-Fill-Water

Diplomat ADP8342 won't fill with water


Assuming the water tap is open and the water pressure is correct, it is likely the inlet water valve in the dishwasher is faulty. If you hear a click at the time the cycle starts but still there is no water then the inlet valve needs to be replaced. Also check the inlet hose for any kinks or blockage of the filter attached to the tap inlet.

ESL624 dishwasher. On any cycle the machine stops after about a minute or 2. Its as if it cuts out for some reason, It pumps out but it doesn't get to the point where it starts letting water in....


Hi

If the water inlet valve is fine and it fills with water then the issue seems to be with the float switch assembly that is bad and should be replaced. Float assembly is found inside the dishwasher's tub, on the bottom. The water that fills the dishwasher lifts the float, and when it reaches a certain level, it acts as a trigger for the float switch. The float triggers the float switch to shut off, thereby shutting off the flow of water into the dishwasher. A defective switch may interfere with dishwasher's filling and/or draining ability. Use voltmeter to test the switch. Set the device to the ohms setting x 1. Take each probe and touch them to one switch terminal each. This should produce a reading of either zero or infinity. Continue to touch the probes to the terminals, and press down on the switch's button. The reading should change to the opposite extreme. If the switch fails either of these tests, you should replace it. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Not filling


Hi


When the Dishwasher is not filling in, you’ll need to check for the water inlet valve, the filter screen and the float switch/assembly. Also check for the float assembly inside the dishwasher. When water is filling your dishwasher, a float rises along with it. As the float reaches a certain threshold level, it shuts off the flow of water, thereby preventing a leak. Sometimes the float can get stuck in the wrong position in your dishwasher, and it can prevent your dishwasher from filling. Sometimes it can happen due to float valve and on other occasions due to float switch. Inspect the water hose coming to the dishwasher for any blockages.

If these are fine then it's due to Water Inlet Valve. Use a multimeter and check for the continuity on inlet valve. If you don’t get any value on the multimeter hen you'll need to replace the water inlet valve assembly.

Please post back for any further assistance.

Hi, either the float switch is stuck or the inlet valve is bad, check the float inside the dishwasher is not stuck, then if that checks out replace the inlet valve. if you have any other questions please feel free to comment. Mike

Electrolux ESI 602 will not fill with water


The float better be inside the tub, at the bottom, it usually only travels a couple of inches up and down... you may have a protective cover in the way of it.
