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.

-Best Regards-

I have a EIDW6105 Electrolux dishwasher and it will not fill with water. Can hear a humming but no water entering the tub. Water is set on 120 degrees and and no lines are cramped.

open the door,look on the front of tub i believe your float switch is on the left side,make sure nothing is under it holding the float up,this will stop the water from entering,if that's ok you could have frozen pipes or valve,i've seen a ton of them in my area,or a bad house water shut off or a bad water valve on dish washer part 154513601,remove the bottom panel you'll see the valve on left side,you can crack the fill line with a wrench and see if any water comes out,if the valve is humming most of the time this is from no water getting to the valve,if it's frigid temps. where you live most likely the pipe or the valve is frozen,you can get a hair dryer and heat the valve up to see if that helps but make sure your shutoff works under the sink,also at night leave the doors under the sink open and remove the bottom panel to the dish washer all winter so warm air can get under and around the valve and pipes,if it isn't froze shut off the water at shutoff under the sink,remove the water fill line from the valve syci the line in a bucket or glass and open the shutoff,if water comes out the valve is bad hope this helps.

I have a frigid site affinity front loading tumble action washer. The water comes in but does not fill. Window in front shows no water accumulation. Otherwise it is functioning. The drain hose is 11 inches...

Not sure if this your first front load or not. A front load washer does typically fill up in to the window. Front load machines use a lot less water than a top loading machine.

Water in bottom of a frigidate professional dishwasher

Hello shellytake5 - Often when there is standing water in the bottom of the dishwasher, it is because more than likely the control or drain pump assembly is faulty and possibly need replacing. However, if the unit is making a grinding noise then it is recommended for the drain motor to be diagnosed. If this problem persists, you can locate a certified technician directly through the manufacturer website or in your local directory to determine what may be causing the issue at hand.

My dishwasher does not warmup the water

When you make a direct connection, what? You are dealing with water and electricity, do not jeoporadize the integrity of the unit by changing wiring around, this is really bad, how is the unit set up, is it cold water coming in or hot make sure its cold water coming in.

Bosch dishwasher model SMU4052UC/14, Won't fill

you need to check the water solenoid valve. if you follow the water line coming into the dishwasher you will find the valve(first spot in the water line with two wires coming from it) if you pull the wires off you should see 110 v when it is trying to fill with water if you do then test the valve for continuity.

No water to the dishwasher

Check the water valve with a volt meter.

The water line coming in to the dishwasher will be connected to the dishwasher water valve. This valve will have two electrical lines which come from the timer. Attach the two volt meter leads to these two wires then turn the dish washer on. If power is not getting to the valve then the timer is bad, if it is then the valve is bad.

Water in not coming....

if you knwo the water line to be good, take off the toe kick plate below and find the inlet valve. It will have a connection with 2 wires on it. Pull the connection off and put a volt meter on it. Start a new cycle, and within a minute or 2 you should start reading 120 volts (or close to that) if you get voltage from the 2 wires, you have a bad or plugged fill valve. If you dont then you have bad wiring in the dishwasher, water lying in the bottom of the dishwasher, or a bad control board. Hope this helps!
