Question about Dishwashers

1 Answer

Can't disconnect the dishwasher from the water supply -- the faucet starts running the moment I disconnect it. I've closed the faucet all the way (as best I can, with a plier), and it still runs.

You can turn the water off using the main water valve that is located under the sink -- this will close all water off to the dishwasher and to the faucet.

    It doesn't seem to be connected to the sink -- it's connected to some lone faucet. I'll get someone to come take a look at it.

Have you tried making sure the water entering the machine is very hot by running the attached faucet Mr. Burns?

We had this happen when we turned our water heater down to it's minimum setting and forgot to run the kitchen faucet (supply was also plumbed to the dishwasher) until fully heated up, then switching on the dishwasher.

Whirlpool gold drains all the time, unable to fill


Hello

Ensure the water faucet is turned on and the connection between the water and the dishwasher is secure. The hose connector should be snapped into place between the water faucet and the water hose.

Straighten the water hose and check for possible obstructions in the water hose, the water faucet and the hose connector. Clean as necessary. Turn on the faucet hot water slowly until it is all the way on to ensure proper water flow to the dishwasher.

Open and close the dishwasher door firmly. The dishwasher will not start a wash cycle if the door is ajar. Verify that the dishwasher is plugged in to a working power supply and that a wash cycle has been selected.

Avoid running other appliances that use water, such as a clothes washer, while the dishwasher is running, to avoid improper water pressure. This may result in a lack of water flow to the dishwasher.

Check to make sure large dishes, such as cookie sheets, pots or pans, are not blocking the spray jets. Avoid overloading the dishwasher.

Hello.

The Hotpoint is a portable dishwasher that has pump guard, overflow protector,rack bumper to prevent the rack from falling out of the dishwasher duringmovement, and temperature and wash options. When the dishwasher is properlyconnected to a water and power supply, it should work well in general. However,if something goes wrong, such as if the dishwasher will not fill with water,some troubleshooting methods may be beneficial in finding a solution to theproblem.

Instructions.

1 Ensure the water faucet is turned on and the connection between the water andthe dishwasher is secure. The hose connector should be snapped into placebetween the water faucet and the water hose.

2 Straighten the water hose and check for possible obstructions in the waterhose, the water faucet and the hose connector. Clean as necessary. Turn on thefaucet hot water slowly until it is all the way on to ensure proper water flowto the dishwasher.

3 Open and close the dishwasher door firmly. The dishwasher will not start awash cycle if the door is ajar. Verify that the dishwasher is plugged in to aworking power supply and that a wash cycle has been selected.

4 Avoid running other appliances that use water, such as a clothes washer,while the dishwasher is running, to avoid improper water pressure. This mayresult in a lack of water flow to the dishwasher.

5 Check to make sure large dishes, such as cookie sheets, pots or pans, are notblocking the spray jets. Avoid overloading the dishwasher.

Thanks.

You may be experiencing what is commonly called "water hammer" from trapped air in the water lines. The most common way to eliminate a water hammer is to replenish all air chambers with air. You can't inspect them, so here is how you do it. Shut off your home's main water supply valve (usually located by the water meter inside the basement, or on the other side of the wall from the water meter if the meter is outside the house.) Next, open the nearest outside faucet to the water meter. Then open several of the inside faucets including the one in the Master Bath. Last, open the faucet that is at the lowest level of the property (usually the utility tub in the basement). Turn it on all the way to drain all the water from the pipes. As the water is drained from the pipes, it is automatically replaced by air, including the air chambers. The moment the water is completely drained from the piping the lowest faucet should be turned off and the main valve reopened. Aire will be pushed out of the horizontal and open vertical water lines and sputter as it exits the faucets inside and out. When all faucets are running smoothly, close them one by one from outside to inside, lowest to highest. In most cases, this should give you quiet running faucets.

Washing machine doesnt seem to be heating up the water


Hi. Washing machines are dependent on the water supply for their heat. If it isn't getting hot, it's from lack of hot water. Put the machine on a setting requiring only hot water for the initial fill, and start the machine. If the water is at a low or no flow rate, proceed as follows: Unplug the washer, close and disconnect the hose from the hot water faucet. Inspect the inside of the hot water hose; there is usually a screen in the end to catch scale and sediment. If you see anything there, remove the washer and screen, and clean it. Reinstall the hose, and disconnect the hose at the washer end of the hot water hose. Open the faucet, and discharge some water into a bucket. If there is no water, you may have a plumbing issue, so I'd back up to the faucet and check. If you do have water there, inspect the solenoid valve inlet (where the hose connected) for another screen. Clean as before. If debris was found at either location in a sufficient quantity to obstruct your water flow, reconnect the hose, and try to get hot water into the machine again. If no hot water will enter the machine, the issue is probably with the solenoid valve. If you have an electrical test meter, you can test the valve, or replace it. Any appliance parts supply house will have your part.
Best regards, and good luck. --W/D-- Please feel free to rate this solution, and let me know what you find out.

Kitchen faucet Remove


Start by turning off the water supply, either by shutting off the main water supply to your house (probably located close to your water meter), or by closing the shutoff valves on the water supply lines to your faucet. Then, open the tap to allow the water to drain out of the lines and remove any water pressure. Next, use your adjustable wrench and disconnect the hot and cold water supply lines running to the faucet. If you're going to replace the lines, disconnect them at the shutoff valve, but if you're going to reuse the existing lines, do your disconnects at the base of the faucet itself. ow it's time to actually remove that old faucet. Faucets are attached in one of two ways. Bottom mounted faucets are removed from the top of the sink. To remove a bottom mount faucet, you need to take off the faucet handles and escutcheon to get to the nuts holding the faucet. Once the nuts are exposed, use your wrench to take them off. Top mounted faucets, unfortunately, are held in place by nuts located on the underside of the sink. You'll need to get under the sink to remove them, and space may be at a premium. If you're lucky, you'll be able to use your slip joint or locking pliers to loosen the nuts. However, if pipes are in the way, you'll need to use a basin wrench (a wrench specially designed to work in tight spaces where you don't have room to use an ordinary wrench or pliers). Once you've removed the nuts holding the faucet, just lift it up off the sink. If there is some caulking holding the base to the sink, slide the blade of a utility knife carefully around the faucet base to cut it loose. You'll need to remove any old caulking or "grunge" that may have built up around the old faucet. You can get silicon remover at your home store, and a mixture of vinegar and water or an orange cleaner will remove the grunge.

I have to connect a 'Y' piece connector to my dishwasher as there is currently no cold water getting to it. How do i go about doing this?


If I'm not mistaken only hot water goes to the dishwasher. What you have is a valve with two outlets usually 1/4 or 3/8 one goes to supply side of sink faucet and other to the supply line of the dishwasher. This valve connects to the hot water supply line of the house. The stub outs should be close to the D/W. If you want to use cold water then you will have to connect this valve to the cold water supply and then connect one side to the dishwasher and the other to the the cold side of sink faucet. Also I believe that dishwashers need the water to be at a certain temperature +/- 150 degrees.
Home Depot/Lowes sell the valves fairly cheap. Hope this helps.
