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 if you need more information.

The water isn't filling into water softner for setting up


Depending on the washing machine, it is supposed to have a gizmo inside the softner housing that triggers the water during the rinse cycle to flow into the softner dispenser. Sometimes, they go missing or are clogged with hardened softner. Open the door fully open and carefully prize the entire housing out. Clean it with hot water and put it back in. Some machines require the slide in tray be raised about 70 degrees (most common) and then pull out, others require a downward angle.

this may be a faulty valve that allows the water to fill the softner compartment.to check the draining capability remove the drawer and take it to a sink make sure it remains level you you sink tap or a cp of water and fill the compartment almost to the top and it should start draining once it starts to drain stop putting water in and watch it. it should finish draining by itself there will be some water left in it but only a small amount. if it does not drain clean it out.

Get an aqua vac and suck out the water (with the dissolved detergent)from the salt container. Refill it with water and repeat the process couple of times. Fill the container with water and salt and it should be fine. Good luck !!
