    Hi Kevin and thanks for the quick response. The two terminals of the water inlet valve should be checked for 120 volts??

Hello & Welcome to FixYa

When the water comes however, won't go inside the unit then it indicates that the problem is either with a clogged/blocked inlet valve or the water inlet valve itself has gone bad and needs replacement. You can also test two terminals of the water inlet valve before replacing it. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Water is not pumping into the diswasher


Check that your supply faucet is open, Check if there is a screen in the supply line, these can become blocked due to scale deposits from the mains. If there is no screen check that the inlet solenoid valve has not got blocked. If none of the above help, check that there is power getting to the solenoid valve when the machine is supposed to be on the fill cycle. If no power is getting to the valve, the timer might be faulty. (You can try hand filling the machine and see if it goes through a cycle, at least up to the rinse stage, this will tell you if the timer control is working).

It shows an F 20 fault after it goes to the wash cycle. I have taken the hoses offf and cleaned the screens. It is getting plenty of water throught the fill valve but still stops with an F 20 fault.


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Error F20 indicates no water is entering in machine and/or the pressure switch trip was not detected. To resolve this issue check the water supply has been turned on, then check the water inlet valve for any clogs and clean it. If there is water in the unit then check the drain pump and also verify that the pressure switch is working fine. If the water inlet valve has gone bad then it should be replaced. Also check the wire harness connections to the water inlet valve and pressure switch. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

The wash cycle runs and runs.


Most diswashers have a complete cycle that lasts over an hour. The machine fills with about 1.5-2 quarts of water, rinses the dishes for a few minutes, then empties the water, then fills again with new water and rinses for a few more minutes, then empties. This is to get a good bit of the looser gunk off the dishes, and to soften up any other stuff that has dried on there. Then the machine fills a third time, the soap door pops open, and it washes for a much longer time to hopefully dissolve away pretty much anything left on the dishes. Then it empties, and does a rinse the soap off cycle, and usually a final cycle that rinses again with a little bit of rinse agent to help them dry quickly.

The whole process uses about 2 gallons of water.

You could if you wanted a hot wash. You cannot dry without cold water. The dryer cycle requires cold water to draw moisture out of the clothes.

You can create a custom program that has no dry cycle. I usually do the laundry this way and hang dry, however I only have cold water hooked up.

You could get cold from the cold tap by installing a few outdoor hose quick connect parts to the tap if your faucet ends in a screw fitting. You may also need screw on expander for this to work. Go to you local hardware store and tell them you want to get the outdoor hose quick connect parts and an expander to fit on your household tap. Buy metal parts NOT cheapo plastic.
