When the dishwasher goes into wash mode there doesn,t seem to be enough water in the unit to spray out the arms. when i pour water into unit it works ok until its next cycle?

Hello, If your unit is not getting enough water inside of it one of the first things that you would check would be the water inlet valve. If you follow the water line going to the dishwasher the water line itself connects to the inlet valve. Using a multimeter you can remove the connection going to the solenoid to assure that the valve is getting power if the valve were not to be getting power then you would look at the float switch which is usually found to the right of the inlet water valve. If you do have power going to the valve yet you still do not have water flowing past the valve you will most likely need to replace the inlet water valve in the unit. If you have any further questions or you have a problem locating the inlet water valve message me back your make and model number of your unit and I will try to locate your schematic to show the location of the valve. Also if you do have any questions message me back those as well. Thanks again I await your reply Rick

Only a small amount of water comes into the dishwasher and doesn't seem to spray or wash the dishes. It's a whirlpool quiet partner 4 dishwasher.

There are 2 possible things causing that

1) the water inlet valve is bad and not fully opening to let in enough water

2)water pressure to that inlet valve is restricted,that could be from if it uses a stainless steel flex hose,something under the sink has pinched it perhaps .

To check turn off water remove line where it connects to dishwasher place end in bucket and turn water supply back on...if pressure good the valve needs being replaced

Reply back with actual model number as found off of label on door rim and i'll give ya part number

When I start my dishwasher the check water light keeps comming on. Also the salt light so the machine does not go through its cycle. Can you please advise me the best course of...

Hi, if your unit is getting good water pressure then the problem is going to be your flow meter which is the device that measures how much water is coming into the unit. If it doesn't detect enough water coming into the unit, the dishwasher will hault and give you check water light error. When the error comes up look at the water in the bottom and see if you have enough water in the bottom for a cycle. If not then your flow meter is fine and your unit truely isn't getting enough water which means that either your house isn't giving good water pressure to the dishwasher, or the electronic water valve that connects to the water line from your house is bad and needs to be replaced....

Our dishwasher was cleaning just great...then the next clean dishes. We thought we forgot to run it, so reran, and the same thing...dirty dishes. Any ideas?


If you are noticing that the dishes are not clean, then there are a few things to check for. Check the soap powder if it's kept in a dry environment. Also try replacing the powder with something like a gel or liquid. Next thing to check for is the water pressure and fill valve. Check if the water is filling in and the spray arms are throwing the water with enough pressure. Try and listen to the sound if you hear a proper spraying action sound.

If it seems as a low water pressure then check the fill valve. Now, check if dishwasher is draining the water or not. While the dishwasher is working check whether the dishwasher is draining and there is not much left out water after the cycle is complete. Try cleaning the spray arm with a soft brush. The water temperature plays a major role in cleaning of dishes. The temp should be between 125 and 150 F for dishwasher to clean the dishes. Hope this helps...

My dishwasher doesn't get enough water in it to clean the dishes or dissolve the soap. It has had two new inlet water valves installed. It will only work for a few weeks then it quits again.

Check your water pressure. Disconnect the water line at the intake valve. Hold the end of the water line over a bucket and turn on valve. See if any deposits come out and check the water pressure. There is a fine screen at the intake valve which can get clogged if you have crud in your pipes. Get a mirror and flashlight and inspect it.

Dishes do not get clean and dishwasher is extremely noisey

Your not getting enough water into the unit,when filled the water should just touch the bottom of the heater.If it's not,take the water line loose and make sure it's not clogged,you can also remove the valve and try either cleaning it out or replacing it part number is 6-920534 sells for about $30 but make sure you have good pressure coming to the unit before replacing it.

Does not wash properly

easy test i came up with. take 5 coffee cups place them on the top rack upright. one in each corner and and one in the middle. do this after the dishwasher has started a cycle and is full with water. with the cups in place let the dishwasher run for one minute. then open the dood. the cups should be mostly full. if not, there is either not enough water or you have a pump problem.
