Your inlet valve has a screen on it.This is probaly clogged, it does happen. At the bottom of your dishwasher ther will be 2 - 4 screws holding the front panels on. UNPLUG FIRST! Remove the panel/s. TURN OFF WATER TO DISHWASHER! you Will have a copper line going into the valve (usually blue w/a 2wire connector and a water supply) and always at the front on either the left or right side. Disconnect the copper water supply line and check the filter.screen. If the bottom inside of the dishwasher is full of water either you need to remove the spray bars and clean them out or you need to replace the impeller in the center under the spray bars. also very easy.

Thanks for using FixYa. It means that the water inlet valve has gone bad and needs to be replaced. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

you can probably change that from the underside Dave. But you may need to pull the unit out. It should be exposed from the side

Hi it sounds like your float is sticking in the UP position or partially up so your unit is not getting a full load of water for washing your dishes.

This is a "How to" very useful link:


You have a good chance of resolving it yourself by unsticking the float..

I had the same problem with by Kemore Ultrawash after two years. The motor bearing went bad because the seal went out and dish water got to the bearing. If you are handy, this motor comes out after taking the dishwasher out. I was surprised how easily the motor came apart from the dishwasher, a good design. The motor has three screws that holds it together, I took them out and took the motor apart.
I took the old beaing off the shaft with a grinder, careful not to groove the motor shaft. I did, but just put some high temp silicone caulk in the groove before I put the new bearing on the shaft. I bought a new bearing on the internet, it is a 22mm x 8mm x 7mm. I bought one that went in a small engine, a quality one. I placed it on the shaft, put the motor back together and put the dishwasher back together. It has run quiet and great for many weeks now. I expect the dishwasher may last many years now, because the bearing I took out was a cheap aftermarket one, and the new one is vastly superior in quality.

Good luck and fire away with any questions. I love this dishwasher and am glad I could fix it for 19$ and some of my time.

Make sure the under-sink valve is turned on. Check the inlet water solenoid located under the front for an open coil.

Had a very similar problem myself with my frigidaire. The spinners, which are removable, were completely clogged with calcium. Soaked them in vinager overnight and then poked each hole/jet individually with a paperclip. Worked like a charm, hope it does the same for you.

The problem is most likely the drain valve. It is electrically operated, and it is common for these to fail.

If you need more help, post a comment.

There may be something plugging up the arm that sprays over the dishes. And of course, I'm sure you know not to place items like bowls, pots, etc that will block the flow of water from the bottom sprays.

Although the bottom jets do most of the working cleaning the top items, the spray from above is vital. Take the stem pipe leadin from the top to the bottom off and separate the spray arms carefully. If you can, look throgh each end to make sure no deposits are in there.

Another way is to blow compressed air from the center stem down in the water supply unit. If food particles are there you'll see them.

Check all nozles for clogs. Do the same with all your drains and screens. Make sure you are getting plenty of water to the washer.

When the dishwasher fills can you hear the wash motor does it make a humming noise if so it may be blocked if it makes a rattling noise the impellor may have broken off. I dont recommend sticking a screw driver in it from behind you may damage the windings.

Is the water coming out the holes of the airgap "vent". If so, you have an obstruction from the hose that goes from the "vent" to the garbage disposer and is causing the drain water to back up. __________________
