Question about Dishwashers

No water coming out of the hotpoint dishwasher HDA460-03AD

I have a hotpoint dishwasher (HDA460-03AD). When I turn the dial to start the cleaning process I can hear the motor run but the water is not coming out of the machine.
I have checked the main water supply line and there is water going thru the main valve into the machine.
Any thoughts on how to diagnose the problem?

Nothing by the sound of it. The humming may mean the main pump is stuck. If you are able, remove the pump & turn the impellor by hand (or screwdriver) just to make sure its free moving. Put it back into machine & see what you get. Could also mean that the capacitor on the main pump (if it is a capacitor start motor) has failed.

SOURCE: Dishwasher will not go thru wash cycles

Hi
You have a problem which will need some knowledge of how the machine works and some test meter.There may be a problem with the motor.It may not beworking,jammed or dead -burnt out.The motor does the work after the water-cold,hot or medium-has entered.
The timer-you say works- will connect power to the motor to do its job,power to solonoid for the valves to open at the right time to let water in and out-pushed out by the motor.Remove the water with a cup and rags from the machine and then see if the motor turns by hand.This may mean you have to get under the machine.ALL WAYS REMOVE THE POWER CORD AT THE WALL POWER OUTLET--Jay

SOURCE: Can hear motor running but nothing happens in dishwasher

Hi, you need to test voltage to the water inlet valve. If you are getting voltage (120V) replace the valve. If you are not getting voltage check the water level switch located in the front corner of the tub.
If I can assist you any further with parts or part #'s, please let me know.

Thanks
Vic

SOURCE: Dishwasher will not go thru wash cycles

if the water is not draining at all in any of the cycle it is probably the discharged line at the bottom of the pump has become blocked. there is an access panel at the bottom of the dishwasher which will allow you access the line. take the line off of the fitting , use a set of vise grips to remove the fitting from the base of the pump.You will probably find corn or rice lodged in the diaphragm within the fitting, remove debris and reinsert the fitting and hose. Hopefully this is helpful to you.

Wash cycle doesn't seem to work. bottom has water


Your gonna have to pull the dishwasher out and shut off the water line. Then disconnect the water hose and get you a bucket. Then turn on the water line to see if water comes out. If water comes out strong then your water supply line is good, which means your inlet port on the dishwasher is clogged or hard water has clogged the little holes in the dishwasher arms. Dishwashers are meant to leave a little water remaining at the bottom to keep the sensor from burning up.

FDB750RCC1 When I start the DW, the motor hums loud then soft then loud then soft...if I advance the dial some sections of the cycle nothing will be running and others the motor is on, but no water is...


Can you hear the water solenoid click when it calls for water? If so, check that the water source valve is on and water comes out of the valve. Check the entry hose for kinks.
Remove everything under the lower arm down to the deck keeping track of reassembly order of every part. Clean the intake screen in a solution of about 5 parts hot water and one part white vinegar for an hour or so. You should be able to to see the pump impeller at the bottom--rotate it to see if it turns freely. If it squeaks or grinds when turned, you may have to remove the motor to clean or replace it. If the screen is damaged in any way, replace it.

Not draining and washer arm not spinning


Have you cleaned the drain filter? The symptoms you describe indicate that the filter are totally clogged.

Cleaning filters should be done every other week to maintain good function in dishwashers, it is not uncommon people forget that.

You access the filter by removing the perforated stainless steel plate at the floor of the washer tub, usually there is a round plastic knob in the middle that you turn counter-clockwise then lift it up. Underneath this plate you will find the main filter, take it out and clean with a soft brush under running water.

Good luck!

Our Nautilus dishwasher won't turn on. I can hear a buzzing noise, but nothing is happening. Does anyone now what I should do?


The same thing happens with my dishwasher. I have made it work by doing the following. When you start up the cycle, turn the dial to just a tick before "start." If you hear the buzzing, but no water is running, unlock and then lock the dishwasher door again. This usually gets it running. If it's still not running water, unlock, advance the dial a little bit, and lock again. This should work. You need to be around for the early parts of the dishwashing cycle because this machine tends to stop up and buzz without running water until it gets past "short wash." Every time this happens, do the same thing, unlock and lock, and advance the dial a little when necessary. Once you get past "short wash," it should complete the wash without intervention.

The dishwasher isnt doing the full cycle


A few things here one with no water coming in the water solonoid could be blocked or is fualty,check to ensure the filter in the soloniod is clean do this by removeing the inlet pipe from the conection at the back of the machine and in the solonoid is a small filter remove it and clean ,reconnect the water and try again,if no water is taken the chances are that the solonoid is gone replace it after you have checked the following ,second if water is taken then see if the timer moves if it does not then look at replaceing the timer again after going through all the possibilities,the motor running is part of the process the motor is meant to run to drain exsess water before takeing new water .the only other thing is that the pressure switch has not released normally from an obstuction in the pressure pipe worst case the switch itself has packed up to test is easy locate the pressure switch and blow into it and if you hear a click and another click when you stop blowing it should be ok if not replace it.

GE Dishwasher not working...


Sounds like you have a one of four possible issues. More info to diagnose would be helpful. (age, which mid cycle) If the motor runs when you turn the timer dial than it is a belt/motor pump issue. If the motor does not run than a bad motor start switch or the water level switch. More than likely the motor/pump assembly as this is usually the problem on these models. If newer check with whirlpool the manufacturer to see if it is covered by warranty.

Won't start


It sounds like you have a food blockage or some blockage between where the water fills up and where it goes into the pump you need to take out the water wand (the rotating thing with water coming out) only the bottom one. You need to unscrew the water wand and make sure nothing is blocking in there.

If not then check your filter which should be next to the water wand remove it and then clean it and make sure nothing in in there to block water getting through.

If you have any questions please dont hesitate to ask
