If your dishwasher seems to work but does not fill with water, one of several factors may cause this problem. The house water supply, the float switch, or the water inlet valve may be responsible for the problem. If you follow the following steps, we believe that you will be able to identify the cause of the issue and resolve the problem.

  1. 1Water supply system: Check if the water is turned on. Locate the hot water supply stop valve under the sink. Open the hot water valve fully by turning it counterclockwise. Now, check if the problem persists, read the next steps.
  2. 2Repair your dishwasher free: Find if you have warranty for your dishwasher. If you bought your dishwasher within one year, it is most likely that you have warranty. Most appliance manufacturers provide one year free warranty. If you have warranty, call the company and get your dishwasher fixed. If you do not have warranty and do not want to spend too much money, you will have to spend some time to identify and possibly fix the problem. The steps below will guide you through the process of identifying and fixing the problem.
  3. 3Float switch: If the dishwasher float assembly gets stuck at a lower position than its normal position, it will shut off water flow into the dishwasher prematurely. Check if the float is bad, read how to test dishwasher float switch for details. If the float assembly is faulty, you need to replace it. Get detail information about how to replace float switch.
  4. 4 Water Inlet Valve: The water inlet valve opens during the fill cycle. There is a filter screen inside the water inlet valve. If the valve does not open fully or the filter screen is clogged with debris, your dishwasher will not fill with water. Check the water inlet valve. Testing details can be found in the article how to test water inlet valve. If the water inlet valve is defective, you need to replace it. Read how to replace water inlet valve.
