No water is filling in my machine

Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that your Frigidaire dishwasher, model# FFBD2411NS, will not fill with water. First make sure that the water supply, to your dishwasher, is turned on. Next, make sure the overfill protector moves freely up and down. You will find this located in the front left corner of your appliance. This keeps your appliance from overfilling. Make sure you clean this occasionally with household cleaner containing vinegar or bleach to dissolve any buildup. The overfill protector should move up and down freely about one inch. If it does not move, lift and clean underneath. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

Water is not coming into my frigid wire dishwasher?

Good Morning Friend,

I understand that water is not coming into your Frigidaire dishwasher, model# PLD2855RFC. There are a couple of things that I would check.

First, check to make sure the water supply is fully turned on.

Secondly, check to make sure the overfill protector moves up and down. The overfill protector keeps your dishwasher from overfilling and is located in the left front corner of the tub. The overfill protector should move up and down freely about one inch. If it does not move, lift and clean underneath. Clean this occasionally with household cleaner containing vinegar or bleach to dissolve any buildup.

I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your washer status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

Electrolux dishwasher giving error code 1?

Good Morning Brian,

I understand that you are receiving an error code 1 on your Electrolux dishwasher, model# EWDW6505GS. Error 1 is stating that water has been detected underneath the tub. Check underneath your dishwasher by taking off the kick plate below the door. If you do not notice any water underneath the tub or any types of leaking, I suggest resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker for 20-30 minutes. When the time has passed, restore power, and run any cycle. If you are still receiving error code 1, I suggest you contact your local authorized technician for further assistance. Hope this is helpful.

Stops pumping in middle of program

Hi there,

I know it is a bit late, but maybe it would help the others.
This E3 error means, that the water temperature did not reach desired level (for example 60C if you are using 60C program) in a given time.
The dishwasher starts the heater and waits for example 10 minutes for the water to reach the temp.
The heater is located on the left side of the dishwasher - it heats
water flowing from the bottom bowl to the sprinkler on the top.
There can be few reasons:
- the heating device is dead - easy to check - if the water is hot when E3 appears, then this is not the case
- the water duct from the bottom bowl to the top sprinkler is messy, and needs cleaning (there are some rubber pipes of quite small diameter)
- the temperature sensor (thermistor) is dead / not responding fast enough. It is mounted to the bottom bowl and can be reached from the front cover, under the doors.

Hope it would help to somebody.
I have already had this and few other problems. All of them have about 5-6 reasons to appear, and I think I know all of them for now :-)
For me, knowing what to expect and how to fix each E-something, this dishwasher is perfect and will last forever :-)

Regards,
Piotr

Dishwasher tub leaks underneath

Hello. Anything is worth trying! But I would recommend epoxy. It works alot better with plastic and rubber items. Most of the leaks I have found in Kenmore machines are at the water pump. You may want to take a peek while it's running, just stay away from the wires!! Thanks!

Dishwasher keeps tripping electric

Two things to consider....clean water or dirty water?
Clean water usually indicates the fill valve is not shutting off all the way and the fill valve is "weeping" water in all the time = new fill valve time!!
Dirty water usually is not a dishwasher problem but more of a plumbing issue. Often the sink drain that carries the sinks water outside is not fast enough and some of this sink water is backing up into the drain hose and filling up the dishwasher through the drain hose. The drain from the sink to outside needs attention as this type of a problem indicates a slow house drain for that sink.
The dishwasher drain line should be clamped to the top underneath part of the counter before entering the sink drain plumbing, this may help the water from coming back inside the dishwash
If the cycle doesn't complete, check these:

Water-heating cycle
Timer
Water-heating cycle Many dishwashers heat the wash and/or rinse water to a higher temperature, as the cycle calls for it. In these cycles, the dishwasher pauses after it has filled with water, waiting for the water to reach the pre-set temperature. What happens next, depends, as follows:

  • On some units, the pause is timed and the unit continues after the allotted time.


  • On others, the cycle can't continue until the water reaches the higher temperature. If you have this type of dishwasher and the water isn't being heated (say, because of a problem with the heating element or thermostat), after the unit stops at the heating cycle, it never continues. When you repair the heating-system problem, the "cycle problem" is fixed too.


Timer Timers don't often fail. But if every other part of the dishwasher seems to be working properly and the timer knob seems to be stuck in one place--doing one function continuously--the timer may be at fault. Dishwasher timers can't be repaired. If yours is defective, replace it.

LG dishwasher doesn't heat water

I had the same issue with my LDF7811 about 2 years into its life. I replaced the heating element and that took care of it. Not a terribly difficult job, but it will require removal of the dishwasher and dismantling it from the underneath.
