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. Test the new 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.

Your answer is here somewhere.

I would think maybe your are not getting the power to the water valve or the float/switch.

Please post results.

Thanks

Ge diswasher won't fill with water


When the program is switched on if there is no water flow despite the fact that the inlet flow is good, then the inlet valve is defective. it can be a failed valve if there is no action and if the flow is low then it can be a clogged valve. Remove, back flush and reset, if not replace, provided there is power to the valve.

Hi

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.

Water is not pumping into the diswasher


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 getting to the valve, the timer might be 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).

Water is not flowing into Bosch diswasher


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.

My matag diswasher fills with water without being used. The process is gradual and takes several days.


two things, your water inlet valve could be going bad. your drain hose from dishwasher is lower than the sink, so whenever the sink is being used, water will slowly back up into dishwasher. if this is the case, just loop the drain hose under the sink, this should solve your problem

KENMORE DISHWASHER WATER DOESN'T SPRAY.


If there's no water entering your dishwasher, check these:

Water-inlet valve
Float switch
Water-inlet valve
The water-inlet valve lets water enter the machine. If this valve is defective, you need to completely
replace it. It's usually located behind the lower access panel on the left or right side. It's the device
with the main water line (usually copper) from the house, a rubber tube to the dishwasher, and two
wires attached to it.

Float switch
The float switch is a small electrical switch that's located right below the dishwasher "floor."
Above the switch, on the inside of the dishwasher, is a plastic cylinder that floats up as water fills
the dishwasher. If this switch is defective, or if the plastic float gets caught or trapped in the raised
position, the water can't enter the dishwasher. If the float switch is defective, you need to replace it.

Neff Dishwasher


Hallo Champer, 1)Be sure water supply is arriving with enough pressure. 2)If the hose between the crane and dishwasher has an aqua-stop ( or water-stop) which you recognize at the hose being enlarged twice the size close to the crane, possibly water supply can be blocked there. You can change it temporarily with a regular hose ( for garden or car-wash ...). If dishwasher is doing the job buy a new hose with Aqua-stop in a regular electro- household appliances shop. 3) If this solution is not the good one, you might check in fact to the inlet valve, which you find at the other side of the metal plate where the watersupply is flooding inside the diswasher. Generally a white coloured threaded plastic pipe. Unplug your dishwasher, close water supply (!) and disconnect the water hose. Open the dishwasher ( either top-plate and/or back-panel). Now you see the inlet-valve ; unscrew this one and mark the position of the 2 electrical wires, which you also unplug then. Also unplug the internal water drain, and ask again a regular shop (see 2) if they can check this valve and if necessary get a spare part. Oeffti, hopefully this helps else let know.
