I have a EIDW6105 Electrolux dishwasher and it will not fill with water. Can hear a humming but no water entering the tub. Water is set on 120 degrees and and no lines are cramped.


open the door,look on the front of tub i believe your float switch is on the left side,make sure nothing is under it holding the float up,this will stop the water from entering,if that's ok you could have frozen pipes or valve,i've seen a ton of them in my area,or a bad house water shut off or a bad water valve on dish washer part 154513601,remove the bottom panel you'll see the valve on left side,you can crack the fill line with a wrench and see if any water comes out,if the valve is humming most of the time this is from no water getting to the valve,if it's frigid temps. where you live most likely the pipe or the valve is frozen,you can get a hair dryer and heat the valve up to see if that helps but make sure your shutoff works under the sink,also at night leave the doors under the sink open and remove the bottom panel to the dish washer all winter so warm air can get under and around the valve and pipes,if it isn't froze shut off the water at shutoff under the sink,remove the water fill line from the valve syci the line in a bucket or glass and open the shutoff,if water comes out the valve is bad hope this helps.

Rear window washers work in all temperatures. Front washers work only when outside temps are above 0 ! Once temps are below zero there is nothing!!!


Sounds like you got it. Water is freezing up the wiper motor or wiper transmission at a certain temp due to water leakage in what is supposed to be a sealed area. (inside wiper motor, wiper trans linkage). "SOUNDS LIKE" water may have seeped in the moer seal & froze it or stripped the gears of the wipers? Good Luck Frank M

Insulation only slows down the transfer of heat (cold), it does not stop it. If it is below freezing and the water in any pipe is not moving, it will eventually freeze. Most major industrial supply houses like McMaster-Carr or Grainger in the US, carry pipe tracing tape. It comes in various lengths and you secure it to the pipe under the insulation, plug it in and many types have integral thermostats that keep the pipe above freezing. If you have a washing machine, you will have to consider the lines to the washer valves, both hot & cold and any other areas in the washer that may hold water like the pump and the discharge hoses.
Was this washer always outdoors?

Water leaks out front


I had exactly the same problem with my Kenmore Ultrawash. I thought the leaking might be coming from the seals around the door, but found that it was leaking from the top as described. I removed the air vent cover on the inside of the door and found that it and the vent area had a great deal of what appeared to be dissolved paper. At first I thought perhaps this was somehow remenents of some kind of air filter, but after reading the post here, came to conclude this was foreign matter. I believe what happended is we at some time washed jars or something with lables on it and this stuff accummulated inside the air vent area. I think in a normal case, when the washer is running, water is mostly stopped from going into the air vent area by the hatched cover, but inevitably some water would get thru. This would be ok normally, because the water would just hit the vent area and probably just fall back into the washer. With all the debris stuck in the vent area and on the cover, I suspect the water was not able to exit the vent area or was hitting the debris and causing the water to jet out the opening to the front - hence the water coming out the vent and pouring down the front. Once I cleaned out the vent area and the cover from the debris, I replaced the cover and ran the washer with no water leaking anymore.

I'm so glad you posted your finding - it gave something to look into, and turned out to be the same source of the problem. You saved me a service call.

Drain pipe under house frozen still


Try going to your local elect supply house. Buy some elect heat tape. You can cut it to lenght and put a plug on the end. Wrap it around the pipe. Put some insulation over it and plug it in. Give it some time as it dosent put out a lot of heat.
