Homark semi integrated dishwasher 01/02-800270

My dishwasher will not fill properly. It does get a little water but not enough to cover the electric heating element inside. I can empty it. Is it a water level switch problem. Any help would be gratefully recived.

    fills with water but does not cover the heating element. Heating element gets warm MACHINE DOES NOT GO THROUGH ITS CYCLE BUT DOES EMPTY WATER OUT

    It turns out that old dishwashers do not have a water sensor switch underneath to know when seals have failed and water is leaking slightly. The whole underneath was really rusty and the dishwasher had to be scrapped as it was uneconomic to repair. New dishwashers should have this water sensor switch so make sure that it does when purchasing.

I think i may have the same problem, the timer on my mchine may have broke, first the detrgent door would not open, then the heater element would heat intermitantly. problem i have is the timer is obsolete, machine is 14 years old the inside looks new this is the firsty and possibly last time it let me down to check opperation hold the timer knob firmly push in simultaniously turn sloowly through the stages the timer may opperate as the contacts would not have worn. my theory!!

After a cycle the dispenser is filled with water. The dishes are clean, the detergent is gone, but there is water filled in the dispenser. Thanks!

There is a small drain hole in the bottom of the dispenser. Most likely it is blocked. Try a toothpick or similar to unblock it.

Model: Frigidaire GPDB998JC0 It fills and drains

Check your water level to see if the water valve is even filling up properly. After starting the cycle, listen when the water fillup begins and ends. Open door and see if there is enough water at the bottom. Should fill up to the float valve. If there is not enough water, the valve needs to be replaced. Costs about $25 and can be replaced diy if you are handy with pushing back the hose clamp and undoing and redoing the water line connection.
Make sure you unplug the electric, and shut off the water before you even want to look behind the toe plate. Dishwashers have high electric hazard behind the toe plate..

Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. First of all please check the Water temperature by using a thermometer inside the dishwasher to measure the water temp. It should be as close to 125 degree F to 140 degree F as possible. Now try using the temperature boost feature if your dishwasher is equipped with this cycle feature and check if this will help your wash ability issues.

Now check the Powder soap by making sure that you store your soap in a dry environment and it is not stale and clumping together. Possibly try a different detergent like a liquid or gel. Also, make sure the dishes are loaded properly, or dishwasher is not overloaded.

To check the proper filling dishwasher will fill with water up to and around the heating element. If water is more below the heating element, you may have low water pressure or a problem with the fill valve. Try & listen if it sounds like it is spraying the water around with enough pressure.
For low water pressure, try to clean the screen at the entrance of the fill valve, sometimes the fill valve can fail and not allow the proper water into the dishwasher and may need to be replaced. And, check the spray arm and pump cover for splits or leaks. Also make sure that the water is draining and is not accumulated in the dishwasher, if it is in dishwasher then check for clogged drain hoses and drain pump.

Low water fills are a very common trouble maker with today's dishwasher.

Cutlery on top tray is not cleaned - comes out with food still stuck here and there - rest of the content is clean

I had the same problem and fixed it by disassembling the lower spray arm and return filter, and cleaning all the junk out.
Most dishwashers have 'risers' that bring the water up to the top sprayer or arm located under the top rack. If the recirculating pump is plugged even a little there won't be enough volume or pressure to get the water up there.
Test this by putting a dry muffin pan in the top rack, flat, and running the dishwasher for a bit. If there is no water on the top (or the bottom) either the top sprayer or the sprayer arm underneath the top rack is not getting enough volume.
To fix this you need to clean out the screen and filter, where the water returns to be recirculated. If you don't have any confidence to remove the parts and clean it out yourself, get an appliance repair person to do the job.

Dishwasher not drying properly; water in the cups/plates

  1. Check the water temperature. Should be 125 to 140 F.
  2. Check pump re-circulation., Listen, see if it sounds like it is spraying the water around with enough pressure.
  3. Check water level when the fill cycle has completed. Should be just under the heating element. If not, possibly need to replace the water inlet valve.
  4. Check the spray arm and pump cover for splits or leaks.
  5. Check to make sure dishwasher is draining after each cycle. There should only be a little water in the bottom of the tub.
  6. Make sure the dishes are loaded properly, or dishwasher is not overloaded.
  7. Possibly try a different detergent. Some liquid-gels will bubble and a pump cannot pump bubbles.
