Hi


There are various reasons as to why a dishwasher wont fill.

1. Check for low water pressure at the tap.

2. The water that fills your dishwasher is controlled by a float, much like the float in a toilet. As the water rises, so does the float, eventually causing the float switch to shut the water off.
The float could be stuck or its movement impeded. Remove bottom rack of dishwasher and then the cover of the float assembly. Verify if it moves freely.

3. You will need a multimeter to check the float switch itself, which is accessed by removing the service panel that is below the door. The switch is just below the float assembly and is held in place by a few screws or possibly a clip. Turn off power to washer, disconnect switch from the float assembly and replace, if needed.

4. There could be an obstruction in the water-inlet hose at the inlet valve. Remove the dishwasher from its cubby hole by removing remove the service panel, then unscrewing the dishwasher from the countertop. Disconnect the water inlet hose and check for any sediment buildup.

5. There could be a problem with the fill valve, drain valve or drain solenoid.

What is the float switch


I have no real experience with float switches on dishwashers, but have with some in humidifiers. It's a piece of styrofoam on a narrow metal stick that lifts when the appliance fills with water & lowers when the water empties. If this gets stuck on something, like a dishwasher rack, the unit won't fill or empty the water & the cycles won't work properly. Take a look & see if there is such a thing hung up somewhere in the dishwasher. If you can loosen it, your dishwasher should work again.

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 betting to the valve, the timer might ba 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).
If you feel that there is water not being pumped out, remove the bottom strainers and make sure that there is nothing obstructing the outlet pipe and the pump. If possible back flush through the outlet pipe and try draining the machine again before using it again.

Dishwater goes from sink to bottom of dishwater


you need to tie up the drain hose under the sink above where it connects to the drain spigot to stop the sink water flowing down into dishwasher instead of the drain. A blockage in the sink drainage can also make the condition worse.

Sink dishwater intrusion


Hello- Find drain hose from dishwasher under sink. Should have gooseneck ~ in hose run to keep water from getting back into dwshr. Does full sink drained all at once push water into tub? Sometimes stuff not disposalled yet blocks drainage. Older motors can tend to become weak with age, not pumping as much water out of tub as it used to.Anyway- Hope this helps- ED

Water keeps filling even if dishwater is off or if the door is open, the only way to stop it is from turning tap valve off below the sink.


Your dishwasher water fill valve is defective. Remove power from the DW. Remove the bottom toe kick panel. The water valve has the incoming water line connected to it.Remove the wires from the valve. If the water stops entering you have a bad timer. If it makes no difference you have a bad valve. The valve is a replaceable part. The timer is a replaceable part.

I found this

"Hi - answer I was given by Electrolux Help was: pull machine out from under bench onto old towel, tip GENTLY onto left hand side (your left as you face the front of the machine) after it has drained, stand up gently, put back & turn on. Apparently it is the overflow trough reading as full ('oF' Overflow). Then run through some dishwasher descaler or Finish dishwasher cleaner. Worked for me."

Dishwater not filling with water when switched on.


Hi nitwit2,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your problem is: Dishwater not filling with water when switched on.

Electric on? Good. 9 times out of 10 it's a bad solenoid valve. It's under the d/w behind the kickplate on the left. I don't recomend this repair for the average homeowner. You might look in the Repair Directory for a repairman. If you're up to it, I find removing the d/w from the cabinet facilitates installation.

Feel free contact me again!
