Dishwasher - no water coming into it

We had new counter tops installed, contractor disconnected dishwasher - We ran a full cycle, including heat dry, when we went to empty, found that no water was coming through\. Think contractor forgot to turn water on. What damage, if any, may have been caused by running the machine without water?
thank you.

If there is no water coming in the machine check first the water supply has not a tap and this is closing.
If water is supplied regularly, then the problem is either with the inlet valve or the float switch.
See the following indications from repairclinic:

" 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."

The start button light is blue, on the screen is beeping the key. i can't use any of program. it shows one minute till the end of drying. what to do?


The exact definition of this error when the clean light is blinking means that your dishwasher is failing to heat the water in an allotted time. This problem can occur on Whirlpool, Kenmore, Kitchen Aid, Jenn-Air, and Maytag dishwashers. The error can be caused by numerous issues but the first thing you want to do is reset the control board.
-To reset the control board press: high temp wash, heated dry, High temp wash, heated dry, high temp wash, heated dry, high temp wash, heated dry, high temp wash. If you don't have a "heated dry" button, use the "air dry" or "energy saver dry" button instead.
-All the lights will go solid at which point you press cancel to reset the board.
-If the control board doesn't reset, it's likely that you've just got a faulty control board and the control board will need to be ordered and replaced.
The next step in this process is to start a new cycle and see what happens. If the error code returns, then you'll want to reset the board again and check several things. The most common reasons for this error is because the water coming from your household is just too cold. The dishwasher is expecting 110 degree water to enter your dishwasher, so if your pipes are cold, the water may only come in luke warm. To correct this issue, just run your faucet next to the dishwasher until the water coming out is hot. On another note, make sure the dishwasher is washing with good water pressure. You can put a cup in the upper rack facing upwards and run a cycle to see if it will fill within 10 minutes of starting the cycle. If it doesn't fill with water then you know that the dishwasher isn't producing enough pressure which, in turn, will cause the water to not heat. You'd want to take your pump and motor assembly apart to clean inside if you had a loss of pressure.
You could also have a failed component including a faulty heater, control board, or high limit thermostat. You'd need to uninstall your dishwasher, disconnect power and lay it on it's back to check the resistance of the heater as well as the resistance of the high limit thermostat to confirm if they were bad or good. You should get tangible reading of between 5 and 30 ohms on the heater if it's good and less than one ohm on the high limit thermostat. If both of those devices check good, then replace the control board because that's the one device you cannot test.

Water not heating up and not drying


Hello

If your dishwasher is not heating properly, troubleshoot the issue. You can often repair this problem and eliminate service fees.

Incoming Water
Most manufacturers recommend that the water coming into your dishwasher be at least 120 degrees Fahrenheit. If the water is too cold, then your dishes don't clean properly. Or the dishwasher must run longer to heat up the water. Test the water temperature by running the hot water on your faucet for about 2 minutes or until it gets really hot. Place a waterproof thermometer under the water. If the water is too cold, increase the water temperature setting on your water heater.

Thermostat
The thermostat is responsible for regulating the water and drying cycle temperature. If this thermostat isn't working, the heating element at the base of the dishwasher tub may not come on. Test this element by selecting the hottest temperature setting. Run the dishwasher on the shortest cycle. Let the dishwasher run for a few minutes, and open it up. If the dishwasher water is not hot or the drying cycle isn't starting, order a new thermostat from a parts dealer since this component is difficult to fix.


Heating Element/Drying Fan

The heating element heats up the water and air. Access this element by removing the bottom rack. It looks like a long black rod. If any part of this component is broken or corroded, you must order a new one. You usually cannot fix this element. The drying fan is located in the main housing of the dishwasher, and it blows air around your dishes to dry them. Check this part by disconnecting the dishwasher from the power supply and opening up the housing. Examine the fan, and see if any dirt or debris is preventing it from moving. Clean it. If the fan won't turn at all or if the motor is burnt out, order a new fan since it's difficult to repair this part.

Additional Concerns

If your dishwasher isn't drying your dishes properly, see if you have selected a heated drying cycle. An air drying cycle doesn't completely dry your dishes. Never overload the dishwasher, as this prevents heat from circulating around your dishes, keeping them from drying properly. Plastic and Teflon dishes don't usually completely dry. You must towel-dry these items.

The water does not heat up and the dishes do not dry


A dishwashermag-glass_10x10.gif that suddenly stops going through the cycles or never completely dry dishes probably has a faulty thermostat. The thermostat controls the heating elements for water and drying. If the thermostat is stuck, the dishwasher won't go to the next cycle because the minimum water temperature requirement is never met. Drying dishes also requires the temperature to get high enough to do the job.
  1. Step 1 Remove the front plate of the dishwasher and locate the thermostat. If the thermostat is not located in the front of the unit pull the dishwasher out and remove the back access panel.
  2. Step 2 Disconnect any wires or other parts that are in the way. Separate the wires with a flat blade screwdriver carefully to keep the wires from breaking.
  3. Step 3 Take out the screws attaching the thermostat to the firewall and remove it from the dishwasher. Verify the replacement part matches the original, including the wire connector.
  4. Step 4 Place the new thermostat into place and secure it with the screws. Connect the wires and replace any parts or cables. Attach the front or back plate and replace any molding.
  5. Step 5 Run a hot water cycle and verify the water is heating and the cycle is able to complete. Check the drying cycle and prepare the first load of dishes.

I'm having my kitchen counter tops replaced with granite. I have a GE Model GSD700 dishwasher that is now attached to the existing counter top. The granite counter tops will not accept having a dishwasher...



• Purchase and install the GPF65 side-mount
bracket kit if the underside of counter is granite
or a similar material that will not accept wood
screws. The GPF65 kit is available from authorized
GE appliance dealers.

Also note that any stainless steel tub models would be able to accomadate granite tops without a kit, and I beleive all Profile GE models come with the kit included.

Model # dwu7702aae has heat delay light coming on during cycle. Why?


Heater is used to both heat water during clean cycle and dry dishes after wash cycle. Most washers have either a separate switch for Heat or Dry for optional use, or some have the water heat and dish dry options built into cycle set options.

You can save money by turning off the Dish Dry option since it is a very in-efficient way to dry dishes. Instead, open the wishwasher door after washing cycle completes, just enough so fresh air can get into, and humid air can escape, dishwasher.

Water Heat option is only needed for dried food on dishes, and is never needed if dishes are either rised off before putting them in the dishwasher, or rinsed off inside the dishwaser with a Rinse cycle, if they are to stand for a time waiting for a full dishwasher for wash.

KitchenAid KUDK03ITWH dishwasher will not pump water out


Well,

You bought this on my birthday, so there can't be anything wrong with the dishwasher. :-)

1) Check that the drain hose did not get pinched during installation.
2) Check that the hose leaves the dishwasher in an upward fashion, to the bottom of the counter-top, before heading back down to the dishwasher connection.
3) Did the dishwasher ever work properly? And if it did, were you using the sink at the same time?

Reply back what you find out. Will be glad to help more.

Kenmore Dishwasher #587.... doing nothing but heat dry


The problem appears to stem from the float and float switch. The float is a mushroom shaped plastic part that resides on the bottom left, just inside the door. It appears that the float does not release the float switch, causing the dishwasher to think it is full of water, and won't allow the dishwasher to fill. It's a relatively straight forward repair, but even with a new part, the same scenario is likely to repeat itself until the float or float switch is modified by Kenmore.
