GE GSD 2200 Dishwasher doesn't fill

The motor humms and runs through the cycles but no water fills. The water valve is open and I've tapped on the float mechanism, but no change.

SOURCE: Dishwasher cycles with timer, won't fill with

Remove the toekick plate on the bottom of the dishwasher.
Remove the wires from the water valve. Insert the leads from a volt meter into the water valve power wires.
Turn the washer on. After the initial pump out cycle the timer sends power to the water valve through the water level switch. If you get power to the wires,the water valve is bad or you have no water supply to the valve.
If you get no power to the wires the water level switch is bad or the wires to the switch are bad or the timer is bad.

Washing machine not filling

yes your problem is up the line somewhere. you have to have water coming out of the fill line when the washing machine is unhooked.
you will have to locate the valve to turn on the water.

good luck

Bosch SHX46AO60C/30 won't fill with water. Have check water under sink - it is on. Motor will run, but no water. Have tried all cycles.


When the Dishwasher won't fill you'll need to check for the water inlet hose, the water inlet valve and the float switch assembly. When the water fills 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 the hose is not clogged then check the water inlet valve for any clogs, if the water will not even fill for few seconds then certainly the water inlet valve is bad and should be replaced. You can also use a multimeter to check 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. However, if the valve is fine then the float switch assembly should be replaced. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

No water is coming in the dishwasher. I can hear the water running, but the water is not coming into the dishwasher

If you can hear the water running - but it's not filling, you most likely have a drain problem, which is being stuck open. Usually the motor kicks in and either pumps the water through the wash arms (during wash cycle) or through the drain (during drain cycle) the switch that/or flap could be stuck on the drain and it is pumping it out the drain all the time instead of the wash arms.

Whirlpool mod.ed25pqxfw1 will not despense ice. motor will not run. is there a test procedure?

I found a parts manual through Whirlpool and it says your ice maker is mechanical type. Fill with tap water and let freeze and if ice maker cycles and dumps the ice but does not refill the the water control valve part number 2182106 but that number has now changed to 2188542. Try this test first and I will send the parts manual and user manual. The test will point to what is happening like water control valve or the fill thermostat inside the ice maker, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Miele Premier Dishwasher will not fill with water

click on this link directly to check out how fill valve looks you will have to remove the access panels to reach the fill valve click on this link to get more instructions --------- This is often the fill valve. You can test the fill valve coil for continuity with a ohm meter, no needle movement = bad fill valve. You can also test the fill valve for 120 volts at the fill valve with a volt meter, power there and no fill = bad fill valve. No 120 volts there, you will have to trace power back to find the trouble maker. Test things like the float and float switch, wires and timer. Fill valves are very bad for working once or twice and then quitting, if your dishwasher fills the first and second fill cycles and then no more water through the rest of the cycle, replace the fill valve. You will need to remove the access panels to get at the fill valve. Dishwasher fill valves also have a screen built into the valve entrance, this can also get all clogged up and need to be cleaned. -------- also click on this link directly to get all types of troubleshooting instructions -------- This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya.

Washing machine will not fill with water just aggitates

Check the float bulb in the bottom of the tub and the switch below the tub. It may be stuck in the up position telling the computor that the water has filled. The timer is not supposed to advance to another process engagement until the water floats the bulb and changes the bottom switch position.

Bosch SHU43C Dishwasher

Is there no water coming in( hear no water at all) or no water NOT staying in ( drain motor running) ... the float switch is a safety to keep the dishwasher from flooding ...turns on the drain motor as soon as the door is closed..

I could check the control and see if you have power to the water valve.. maybe a control problem if no power..

Water problem

Many dishwashers will drain at the beginning of any cycle.
If the water does not fill after the pump-out cycle, then the problem is either the fill valve or the float switch. You should be able to hear the float switch click as you raise or lower it. The fill valve usually hums whenever it has power.
If the fill valve has power but doesn't open, (use a voltmeter) replace the fill valve. If there is no power at the float switch, nor at the fill valve after pumping out, then the clock / timer is at fault.

The motor runs but no water, with water turned on

You could have a possible fill valve problem. Remove the lower kick plate in the front. The fill valve will be located somewhere near the front of the unit on the left hand side. With the circuit breaker turned off, and water supply line turned off, remove the water line to the fill valve and make sure there's nothing obstructing water flow. Sometimes if you use teflon tape you can get a piece of it covering the opening of the line. Or, if you have hard water, you can get corrosive mineral build ups blocking water flow. Carefully remove the electrical connection to the valve and check the connector tabs on the fill solenoid to make sure they aren't corroded. Reconnect everything and try to run the unit with the circuit breaker and water turned back on. I have experienced on a couple of occasion where merely removing the connector and plugging it back in corrected the problem. If the unit still does not fill, you can carefully check for voltage at the fill valve solenoid. You should be able able to get a reading with the plug connected and it should read 120vac. If no voltage is getting to the valve, you have a wiring problem between the valve and the timer. If you have the proper voltage, more than likely you have a bad fill valve. Good luck and I hope this helps you.
