Question about Gaggenau Dishwashers
Hello, welcome to FixYa.
Based on your description, "there is a humming sound but there is no water coming into the dishwasher to wash"...the issue is likely with the inlet/water valve. I'm not sure if you are aware of it, but this machine is built by Bosch (B/S/H/).
**To remedy this you will need to check and possibly replace the valve**
This is what to look for..i.e.
As long as your model number is indeed correct, this info below will be accurate.
Original part is # 425458. It usually retails for about $20 - $30USD at places such as "searspartsdirect.com" "repairclinic.com" to name a couple.
**Before attempting to repair the unit please turn off the power and the water supply to the dishwasher...safety first**
If you remove the lower kick plate/toe panel, you will see the inlet valve to your left...
Replacing it or to check for debris in the filter/screen at the inlet is pretty straight forward. Here`s how...
1) undo the water line. ( here you can visually inspect the screen in the valve...if nothing noted, you'll likely need to replace it as follows )
2) Remove the two #20 torx screws fastening it in place.

Once the new one is in you should be good to go. Let me know if you need any further assistance, otherwise good luck.
Thanks for visiting FixYa.
