My dishwasher will not fill, I’ve changed the inlet water valve, checked the float switch which works,. No power to inlet valve so I thought it maybe the float switch, however when testing continuity, this worked fine. The machine appears to be working but cannot hear the unit going into the cycles for water to fill into the machine. Checked door latch all ok, Any additional help would be grateful.
Thanks

Possible timer problem or broken wire! All the wires run down the right side of the dishwasher from timer between the two doors down by the small access panel.If you know how to remove the plastic panel from the outside metal panel you will see on the right side all the wires that I am talking about.Through the years of opening and closing the door the wires or wire will break there.You may also try to pull on the wires from the small access panel and see if you find a broken wire.Off coarse you would looking for the ones the supply power to the float switch to the water valve. Here is your tech sheet!

Hi Ohm
the problem was the timer, there was no continuity to the motor part, the one that has two pin plug. Installed a new timer unit and the dishwasher is working again. Just a heads up to anyone else that may have this problem, when I finished installing everything the soap dispenser door would not close. Checked the springs- all ok, finally resolved problem by figuring out the old timer unit had a plastic wheel, which did not come with the new unit. Re attached the wheel to the new unit and presto, the soap door now closes.
thanks again.

Yesterday, water filled in the bottom of the unit but didn’t spray. Today, water isn’t even entering the unit.

We have tested the float switch, the water hose, and the water inlet valve (which we placed).
