If the dishwasher's water flow doesn't automatically shut off, the float switch is faulty or the timer is stuck on "Fill" or the water inlet valve is stuck open. To test the float switch, you'll need an inexpensive volt-ohm meter (or multi-tester). 1) Unplug the dishwasher. 2) Reach into the cabinet and lift the dome-shaped plastic float switch. If it doesn't lift, remove the plastic top from the stem, scrub the stem clean, and then replace the dome. If it moves up and down freely, go on to step 3. 3) Note which wires are attached to the float switch's terminals and, using small pieces of tape, label them for later reference. 4) Set the volt-ohm meter's dial to Rx100 and touch the two probes to the terminals. When you lift the float, the tester's needle should show an infinity reading and, when you let the float drop, the needle should show 0. If it doesn't, the switch is broken and will need replacement. Unscrew it from the tub and replace it.

I have an lg dishwasher that showed an ie error so I fitted a new inlet valve It now shows an FE code?

The drain pump automatically runs when the FE code is displayed. A leaking water inlet valve or a stuck relay on the electronic control board can allow water to fill the dishwasher constantly. To check for a leaky water inlet valve, unplug the dishwasher and see if the tub continues to fill with water. If it does, shut off the water supply and replace the water inlet valve because the valve is letting water to flow into the dishwasher constantly. If water stops filling when you unplug the dishwasher, then you'll likely need to replace the electronic control board because the control board is constantly sending current to the water inlet valve

Switch dishwasher on and starts up ok but when it comes to pumping water in it stops and does not do anything else.

Hello

Investigate these five areas if your dishwasher won't fill with water:

As water is filling your dishwasher, a float rises along with it. When the float reaches a predetermined 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. Check your float assembly. Replace it if you need to.

The water that fills your dishwasher lifts the float, and when it reaches a certain level, it acts as a trigger for the float switch. The float triggers the float switch to shut off, thereby shutting off the flow of water into the dishwasher. A defective switch may interfere with your dishwasher's filling ability.

Your dishwasher may not be filling with water simply because the water valve's filter screens are dirty and debris-filled. Gain access to your water inlet valve and try cleaning it out. This might be enough to solve the problem. You can learn how to access your water inlet valve in the replace a dishwasher water inlet valve section.

Alternatively, your water inlet valve could be defective altogether. That could be the reason your dishwasher is not filling. Test it for continuity. If it is not functioning as it should, replace it.

Your dishwasher's drain valve is regulated by a drain solenoid. If the solenoid is malfunctioning, it may not allow the drain valve to funtion properly, which in turn could be the reason your dishwasher is not filling with water. Investigate your drain valve and test the solenoid. If the solenoid is faulty, replace it.

Dishwsher doesn't get disher clean

Hi

If the water inlet valve is fine and it fills with water then the issue seems to be with the float switch assembly that is bad and should be replaced. Float assembly is found inside the dishwasher's tub, on the bottom. The water that fills the dishwasher lifts the float, and when it reaches a certain level, it acts as a trigger for the float switch. The float triggers the float switch to shut off, thereby shutting off the flow of water into the dishwasher. A defective switch may interfere with dishwasher's filling and/or draining ability. Use voltmeter to test the switch. Set the device to the ohms setting x 1. Take each probe and touch them to one switch terminal each. This should produce a reading of either zero or infinity. Continue to touch the probes to the terminals, and press down on the switch's button. The reading should change to the opposite extreme. If the switch fails either of these tests, you should replace it. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Water will not stop running into the dishwasher. Maytag Dishwasher pdb1100awe

If the water flow on your Maytag dishwasher does not shut off automatically, then there is probably a faulty float switch, or the timer may be temporarily stuck on the "fill" command, or the water inlet valve could be stuck open. To determine if the float switch is the problem, you will need to test them with a multi-tester

Bosch SHU 5302 Machine doesn,t fill with water.

Make sure you get water to the dishwasher. Check to see if the water shut-off valve (located under the sink) is open. If you get water to the dishwasher, but there is still no water inside during the fill cycle, the problem might be with a faulty water valve (located at the bottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, on either side), in which case replace the water valve.

Dishwasher top spray bar does not spray due to low water fill

Check the water hose going from the sink to the dishwasher to make sure it is'nt clogged, if there's a water shut off valve under the sink make sure it's fully open, also check to make sure the spray arms at the bottom of the dishwasher that supply water to the top rack is clean with no debris or obstructions in the spray hole's, the water entering the dishwasher should be at a warm temp, if it's cold the dishes will not get clean, you should have good water pressure from the house supply for it to fill properly, the float is also called a flood switch, it should not be activated during the water fill cycle, if it's activated it will shut off the water inlet valve and the wash cycle will stop or the dishwasher will drain, if your still having wash problems it could be a defective water inlet valve or a bad timer, if that's the case you might have to call an appliance repair man, hope this helps, good luck.
