If no voltage at water valve when unit is set to fill and timer knob is in its correct position ie pulled out then you probally have a bad water level switch or a bad timer

Gld2445rfso will not fill up with water -- it will run fine and drain if I pour water into the unit and shut the door but will not fill -- water is fine at the entry point when disconnected -- worked fine...

Check the voltage at the solenoid valve and then check the reistance to it. This will tell you if the voltage is not present, replace the control board, if the resistance is high (infinity) replace the valve. If both are normal the valve is stuck, replace it.

No water or ice

check to make sure water to valve in back lower section and be sure no water line is crimped if water at valve check voltage when pushing the water dispenser if there is voltage , bad water valve if not swith at dispenser

Washer not filling with water

sounds like a defective pressure switch that is just a spdt pressure operated switch and its stuck on the timer side of this switch and can't switch back to the fill side of the switch to fill the machine first before starting agitation,check voltage from the water fill wire off this switch for line voltage,then check from the wire on this switch to the timer for line voltage,probably no voltage from the water fill valve wire so it can't fill

Suggested approach to fixing your problem:

Your ice maker is designed to fill with water for 6 to 8 seconds. Depending on your city water pressure, anything longer than eight seconds will overfill the ice tray and either over flow the ice maker or create cubes that have difficulty ejecting.
There are two basic issues that commonly cause an overfill condition.
  • The first is an ice maker that is sending power to the water inlet valve for a period longer than eight seconds.
  • The next problem which is the subject of this answer is a water inlet valve that is closing too slowly. The power to the valve is being shut off in the correct amount of time, but due to imperfections in the valve, it is closing in a delayed fashion.

How to Diagnosis:

The easiest way to determine if your water inlet valve is the culprit, is to install a meter volt meter across the leads of the water inlet valve.
  1. Set the voltage range for 110v.
  2. Manually cycle the ice maker and watch the meter.
  3. When the ice maker begins to fill with water the meter will read voltage coming from the ice maker.
  4. Note the difference in time between when the voltage is cut from the valve and when the water quits filling the ice maker.
  5. If the water shuts off immediately when the voltage is removed, the valve is likely operating correctly.
  6. If this is the case, it is likely that the voltage will be applied to the valve for a period of time greater than eight seconds.
  7. This generally indicates an ice maker control problem.
However, if the voltage is removed from the valve and it continues to fill, the valve is likely at fault. This indicates that due to particle build-up or mechanical failure the valve has lost its ability to shut immediately. In that case, simply replace the valve and it should fix your problem.

Dishwasher not filling

The water float switch, located on the inside bottom of the machine, may be stuck in the up(off) position keeping the water valve from functioning. This is a safety device that turns the water valve off when the machine fills in order to keep it from overflowing.

The water inlet solenoid mounted on the inlet valve under the bottom front may also be malfunctioning not allowing the water valve to open and fill the machine. If electricity is present at the solenoid terminals when the machine is in fill cycle, then check the solenoid coil to see if it is open(no continuity). Also, the timer may not be calling for water/ sending voltage to the inlet valve solenoid.

I would start by manually operating the water float valve a few time to see if that helps. You should hear a microswitch click each time the valve stem is moved up or down by the float. If not, check to see if voltage is getting to the float switch and the water inlet valve solenoid.

Most(if not all) machines have a safety cutoff switch which activates when the door is opened. That switch could also be malfunctioning not allowing voltage to the water inlet valve solenoid in fill cycle.

Dishwasher does not fill with water, checked float and it is good. so signal at water valve. But i get a good ohm reading on the valve.

Is the valve opening. Since you have a meter set it to the a c voltage range, and check whether you get voltage to solenoid coil where you tested coil resistance. If no voltage reaching check the control board.

For a trial fill water manually to the wash chamber and run the machine. If it runs OK the machine is OK. Otherwise check the float switch/ pressure switch and diagonise further

Only cold water water lines good

if you have switched your hot with your cold and now have only hot, your water inlet valve is either bad or it may not be getting the voltage to open the solenoid. Check your wiring and see if you get voltage to the hot water side of the inlet valve. if you do have voltage change out the water valve.

Check the solenoids at the water inlet valve. They can be checked using a multimeter or ohm meter for continuity. If either solenoid has none, it is defective and the water inlet valve assy will need to be replaced. I am attaching a photo for reference. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Drum not filling

Make sure that there is water available by turning the wall faucets all the way on. if the wall faucets are on and the water inlet hoses are clear and the screens are not clogged, this will confirm water inlet valve assembly failure. you will need to replace this device in this case.

You can test the valve assembly for voltage, if the voltage is not sufficient, replace the control and, if the voltage is 120 vac, replace the water valve assembly.
