Hello. there are two devices that control the flow of water into a dishwasher. They are the water-inlet valve and the 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.

Refill your SALT container with 1kg of dishwasher salt.
Salt reduces hardness in water -and increases cleaning efficiency. If you have a little furr build up in your kettle - you need salt in your dishwasher to work properly.

If you do use salt, it may be the salt reservoir is blocked with caked salt.

Hi

Many dishwashers ( but not all ) use a BI-metal strip that heats up once power is applied to it. The BI-metal strip bends and allows the soap door spring to open up the dispenser. This bi-metal strip is not given full 120 volts power, the timer "shunts" the power through either the heating element ( most common ) or the motor and this gives the bi-metal strip lower than full power to work and open. Most often the bi-metal strip has lost it's ability to bend properly and needs to be replaced. Older GE dishwashers used an mechanical arm driven by the timer to open the dispenser = no electrical bi-metals. Newer ( plastic liner ) Maytag dishwashers and many newer Whirlpool and Frigidaire dishwashers use a wax motor to open the soap dispenser, this wax motor does receive 120 volts to work. The plunger inside the wax motor slowly moves and pushes the plunger and door open. This is a what a wax motor looks like.


Please do rate the solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance.

Thanks

Most likely your product is fine. However those little gel-packs r the worse on dishwashers they get stuck in the system and clog and ruin dishwashers I always recommend using powder it foams less and breaks down easier in the dishwasher. Also u might have a clogged or kinked drain line. If all is fine there it is possible your motor is locked up in that case make sure the dishwasher is off take off the bottom panel. Then reach under and find the fan blades on the motor turn them a few times to unlock it replace panel. U can also try a small amount of C.L.R to clear up any grime in the system.

Soap is not disolving because either your water temp. is too low (adjust at water heater).Or your sprayer arms are clogged up.(remove any particals that can be trapped in the holes on your sprayer) THATS IT !! PLEASE LEAVE A RATING !!!!!

Dbootin,

I suggest just putting a dedicated Drain in the island next to the Dishwasher. You can hide it in side the island. Under the house, tee into the Main Sewage drain.  You should not need to vent it as the sinks vent is near enough to keep you from worrying about that.

The incoming hot water can be hooked up independently. The thing you should consider is the drain line. The drain hose and the pump are (obviously) below the tub of the dishwasher (DW). If you route the drain hose through the floor directly, the water in the tub will siphon out. You'll need to route the drain hose to keep this from happening. The way to do that is to route it in such a way that it forms an almost upside down "J", then down through the island. The upper portion of the "J" should be about the same height as the top of the DW.

Also consider the electrical hook up. The proper way to wire it is through a SPST switch (like a light switch) so you can turn power off in an emergency or a servicer can kill power without having to locate the breaker. Some contractors "hard wire" the DW's in (with or without a SPST switch)... others mount a wall outlet so you can plug and unplug the DW if necessary. Either way is OK, only mentioned it so you'll know how your contractor will be doing it.

Just some things to consider. Good luck with the renovation and I hope you enjoy your new Kitchen.

If the dishwasher is filling with out the power on, you have a defective inlet water valve. If it's new, have them repair it under your warranty. If not the part number is wd15x10003. Easy fix, on the left side behind the toe panel...Catriver...post back.

Does it cycle i.e. fill, wash, rinse, and drain?

If yes, then heater relay likely has failed (closed).

What model number?

GE Dishwashers | Answered on Jan 18, 2020


Sooo with my model just for anyone looking this up. My son loves pushing buttons and one of his favorite is the “delayed start” button. After researching, cleaning out the filter, unplugging the dishwasher and most everything short of pulling my hair out, I found out that the little nugget had pressed the delayed wash button. Which, you would think would reset when you reset the machine but evidently not. Pushed the delayed start button and cycled through 12 hrs and bingo, it ran....

Not a fun way to spend the night but at least I saved money by not having to call out a repair man. ??
