Dishwasher not filling with water

Last week it worked fine, this week there is no water filling the machine and we haven't touched the faucet valves. Motor and heater are running OK. This is a relatively new machine that was in the house when we purchased it.

    Sounds like it is running, but never fills with water. Filled it manually with water, then it never drained.
    For some reason, if I keep turning the dial over and over and over again, eventually it will start working.

    Worked fine, yesterday. Turned it on today, makes noise, but no water. Sink right next to it has water, not dishwasher. Already had problems with the GE refrigerator, now this. They both came with a top of the line Palm Harbor home.

    Sounds like it is running, but never fills with water. Or occassionally I can get it too when I mess with the switch but then it wont shut off or switch to the next cycle phase. I have to manually move the dial or it will run for hours. Its only a year old. Any ideas?

    Have you tried any of the other cycles?  "Hot Start" - simply the "On" or "Start" cycle, or even the "Short Wash" cycle?


    What I noticed with my Nautilus, if you "over-crank" the nob, even slightly past the cycle/notch, I will hear a motor sound running, but will not hear the water engaging or anything, so if I pass up the cycle, I have to crank it all the way back around, until just "before" the cycle, until I hear the sound of the water filling.


    This occurs primarily when using the "Short Wash" cycle, If I set the timer/switch to "Short Wash" I actually have to click the switch slightly past the notch, before the water will engage/fill....

My GE Nautilus, Serial # GSD363F00W, Model # LA774908 is about 3 or 4 years old. I use it at least once a day. It has been working fine. Today I turned it on, red light came on, and I heard activity of some sort inside machine but no water came. Turned washer off, looked inside, no water. Turned machine back on, again heard some sort of activity but again no water came. Tried twisting the dial through the washing cycles, detergent cup dispensed detergent and dry heat come on, but no water.

Basically, the dishwasher was working fine up until a couple of weeks ago when it just will not fill with water; it drains fine having filled it with water manually and switched on, all the water gets


HI, First I hope you checked that someone has not turned the water off. next, you will find that the inlet of the water is operated by a solenoid valve. This has I would expect, stopped working. You will need to remove the power, then remove the top of the dishwasher. the inlet valve is where the cold water enters the dishwasher. You will need the make and model of the dishwasher, buy the new valve and replace the dead one. it will take longer for the new one to arrive than it will to change them over. Good luck

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.

No water going in unit. was working fine for last 7 years


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 then you'll need to replace the water inlet valve assembly. Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.

Kenmore Dishwasher won't fill


Not likely an air lock. When plumbing work is done the pipes ge shook up and then particles plug up the screens on these and washer and faucets. I would make sure the over flow float is properly working and then check the screen on the fill valve. Could be a coincidence and the valve failed but that is my last choice in this case. Eric

Dishwasher wan't fill with water


The water valve may look fine but the solenoid may not be opening to allow water in. You said that everything else works fine except no water supply to the dishwasher. This sounds like a bad soleniod valve. Check for continuity on the valve with an ohms meter after you start it. Be careful.

Engine is humming but the water does not make it into the dish washer


Replace the water solenoid valve, but try opening it up first, and seeing if there is any build up inside the valve. This is normal in solenoids just remove the obstruction and water should fill.

Dishwasher worked fine last night, this morning it is not working


In some supply systems, there is a safety valve ( commonly referred to as a shuttle valve) that has a small ball bearing that blocks the water from flowing if a water line bursts.. This is supposed to be a safety feature to prevent flooding but can be an annoyance if that ball moves and blocks water flow from coming in.
That, or your water inlet valve may be the prime suspects for this problem..
Hope this helps,
Regards,
Rick

Turns out that the dishwasher had a leak in the bottom. No water could be seen leaking out because Bosch machines have a cut-off valve that means if a tray in the bottom of the machine fills up with water, the float valve doesn't allow anymore water into the machine. we worked this out after we tipped the machine slightly, water ran out, when we put it back down and started it the inlet valve worked until the bottom had filled with water again.

New machine for us! However, not a critism of Bosch. We use our machine at least two or three times a day and have done for the last 5 years.
