1st place I would look is to turn off hot and cold water going to washer,remove hoses and check screens there are usually 2 screens 1 in each connection on washer they pull out and then you can see if they are clogged with debris.After cleaning them make sure you put them back in so that they can protect your washer.

It may also be a good idea to replace those rubber washers in the hose at this time if you haven't in a while for they will leak sometimes if they are old and have been messed with .

Hello. Do this:

1) Shut off the dishwasher and wait few seconds.

2) Turn on the power again by pressing power button.

Press Start/Pause button. After few seconds drain pump will come on

for short period of time twice. You will hear some type drain pump

noise in the dishwasher. Observe if the drain hose is pumping water out

in to the sink.

3) Immediately turn off the dishwasher after the second drain.

4) If there is still water left in the dishwasher, repeat first three steps again
until the water is removed completely.

Hi there,

Well first of all you can check out the water-inlet valve -most cleaning problems are caused by the dishwasher not getting enough wash water, so the water-inlet valve is often the cause. This valve is usually at the bottom left or right of the dishwasher, behind the lower access panel. It's the device with the main water line from the house, a rubber tube to the dishwasher, and two wires attached to it. When a water-inlet valve is defective, you may hear the sound that's usually referred to as "water hammer." If the water-inlet valve is defective, you need to completely replace it. Further you can check the drain valve - Some dishwashers have a valve (or gate) that should open only during draining. If debris lodges in the valve, it can't close properly, so water drains out during the wash cycle. Most dishwashers drain into the garbage disposer. If yours does that, listen for water flowing into the disposer during the wash cycle. If you can hear it then, the drain valve may be clogged. Please post details about the model number of your dishwasher for further help or information.......

Good Luck!!

Hi there,

Well first of all you can check out the door switch - The door switch is important because, if it's defective, the dishwasher won't work at all. To reach it, you need to remove the control panel cover, or sometimes the interior liner of the door. If it's defective, you need to completely replace it. Your switch also may be locked in place by a locking clip. If this is the case there should be a button or a lever that you can press or pull, which will release the switch and it can simply be removed. Please post comments for further help or information........

Good Luck!!
