You could have a possible fill valve problem. Remove the lower kick plate in the front. The fill valve will be located somewhere near the front of the unit on the left hand side. With the circuit breaker turned off, and water supply line turned off, remove the water line to the fill valve and make sure there's nothing obstructing water flow. Sometimes if you use teflon tape you can get a piece of it covering the opening of the line. Or, if you have hard water, you can get corrosive mineral build ups blocking water flow. Carefully remove the electrical connection to the valve and check the connector tabs on the fill solenoid to make sure they aren't corroded. Reconnect everything and try to run the unit with the circuit breaker and water turned back on. I have experienced on a couple of occasion where merely removing the connector and plugging it back in corrected the problem. If the unit still does not fill, you can carefully check for voltage at the fill valve solenoid. You should be able able to get a reading with the plug connected and it should read 120vac. If no voltage is getting to the valve, you have a wiring problem between the valve and the timer. If you have the proper voltage, more than likely you have a bad fill valve. Good luck and I hope this helps you.

I've had the same problem, and the float valve seems to be the culprit, by simply jiggling the connections I could get it to fill, however this was never a long term solution. I think a broken float valve makes the washer think its already full of water, so the motor runs and it goes through the cycle, however it remains dry.

My dishwasher is not cleaning the dishes.when the dishwasher is done there is still stuff on my dishes. if you cancel the cycle the water in the dishwasher is cold


If the machine used to work fine then I'd suggest running the hot water in your sink before starting a cycle to ensure the water entering your dishwaher is hot. If you then are getting hot water and still dirty dishes try reposting for a a solution. When re-posting, include your make and model for a better answer.

The water pipes rattle violently in the beginning of the cycle.


My Kenmore 16464 dishwasher caused a buzz in the water pipes at the start of the cycle that I thought was just water hammer. It turned out to be a bad water inlet valve on the dishwasher that has water hoses (inlet and outlet) attached plus has an electrical connector. It is located near the front left underneath the tub. I pulled the dishwaher out and replaced it and all is quiet again. - Jim

Asko D3122 dishwasher will not fill with water and will not turn off


you may have water under the dishwaher ... have any plumbing work done lately?

if the dishwaher overflows or leaks it will trip a float switch under the dishwasher... as long as it is triped it will run the drain pump.. and not let any water into the tub...

the water will have to be removed and the leak stopped before it will run a cycle....

Hope this helps if not let me know more about your problem..

Does not drain water after wash/rinse cycles


check the drain pump at the button of the dishwaher.
its not a big job, but it is a pain to take it out.
once you have it out, take a look of the bland on the motor, make sure they are all there, missing bland will cause the water to bunce back and nto drain completely. take a look of the motor, it should turn freely. the pump is oneway. make sure nothing else is broken from the pump and the outlet.
if all failed, replace the pump.

Kenmore Dishwasher


If you have either dry bearings in the motor or sticky grease buildup in the pump bearing/seal, it can cause the motor to stick rather than rotate on startup. More likely to be greasy crud buildup. The best you can do without disassembling the entire unit is to circulate a good degreaser product in a wash cycle, such as 409 or PurplePower. On the off chance (very small chance) it would degrade plastic parts, only run degreaser wash cycle for 5 minutes or so before draining it and running rinse cycle.
