The motor is running to draw the water from the tap but no water is coming in. The tap is working and the pipe is clear.I am filling the machine with water manually and the machine is working fine otherwise. It is even draining the water from the machine.
Could I have connected the wires from the control panel incorrectly?

Re: machine not taking in water from tap
More than likely its your solenoids which is were the water pipes attach theres 2wires going to these parts try swopping the wires from 1 solenoid to the other 1 after turning power off now turn the power back on and see if it now draws the water if it does then the other solenoid has become faulty

We fixed the leak by putting a pipe cleaner down the hole inside the fridge, at the back. This cleared the tube as it had gunk and grime blocking it. Now the water can run freely down the tube and into the drip tray which is at the back of the fridge above the motor.
the pipes are connected to the water pipes there should be a red one and and blue one. or the taps on the pipes are sometimes coloured. turn the taps so that they are not running level with the pipe. or the other way than they are now. they will stop at the right point. unscrew the hoses at the pipe end white plastic ridged screw caps you might need a gripping spanner. make sure as you take each one off you do not loose the washers inside there. black rubber things, the drain should just lift out but have a bucket ready because when you put the pipe on the floor lots of water will come out of the pipe. hope that helps. liz
is the filling valve on the inlet water working unscrew the connecting pipe and see if the water is actually comeing out of the pipe. sometimes when the tap runs at the same time it takes a lot of the water rather than the dishwasher getting it. depending on the pressure. otherwise it might be the ****** pump. try wd 40 on it. it might be jamming.
probably due to not draining. there is a filter in the system which you need to remove and clean. possible also that you have a foreign object jamming the pump. take the back panel at the bottom of the machine off. you will see a large diameter hose going from the bottom of the tub to the pump.remove this hose at the tub end. lots of water will come out so make sure none goes on the motor. the filter is inside this hose. take out and clean let me know if this doesn't work
have you check the tunnel between the kidney shaped sump and the well that the rotor motor locks into, often chips of crockery,seeds etc get caught in here and reduce the flow rate .You will need to remove the rotor motor,its easy, lift out racks then sprayarm to expose rotor motor turn locking ring to release stainless sieve lift out, then turn motor assembly anti clockwise and lift out.With something flexible eg 4mm insulated wire push it through tunnel from sump to motor well.
there can be 3 reasons for this I will tell u the easiest way to test this first
Problem1)turn the water off at the blue tap fitting that is proberbly under your sink take the blue pipe off at the washer end and place it into the sink turn the blue tap back on if the water comes out quick then the problem is more then likely your cold water solenoid that is either slightly blocked were it fits to the washer,But if it doesnt come out quick then the other 2 problems are as follows.
Problem2)the blue tap that u turn the cold water on to the blue pipe undue the little screw in the middle of the tap and pull the blue fitting off now with a pair of pliers turn the square metal fitting that was under the blue fitting making sure that the end of the pipe is in the sink if it comes out quick then that is the problem the blue tap fitting is rounded off when ot should be square turn the water of and replace the pipe and turn the water back on the cold water should be better now.
Problem3)the blue tap that u turn the cold water pipe of at the copper pipe is blocked or it has a broken shut off valve inside it this will need replacing these are the only problems that it could be let me know if this is any help to u peter
The detergent/softner dispenser is located above the detergent drawer.
A water pipe is connected to it and water entrance and distribution to drawer's cells (following the programmed cycle)are
done by a lever's movement (part of the dispenser). The lever movement is controlled by two solenoids that received their power from the timer.
By opening upper machine's cover you will have an access to the dispenser.
Disconnect the power cable from the machine before moving to next step !!!!
Look first that they are not any disconnected wires.
Move manually dispenser's lever and see if water running to all cells (depend on your movement). In case it doesn't work properly remove the unit from the machine and try to clean it (I hope it will help, otherwise you should replace the unit).
In case it works properly (manually) - you should test with a multi-tester solenoid's resistance. the one that doesn't have a resistance measurement should be replaced.
Good luck !!
