My dish washer starts to fill water for about 5sec then stop. Not enough
water to even wash the soap powder out of its container. The washing cycle
is normal. It seems the solonoid valve is working because it let the water
in but not sure why it turns off just after a few seconds leaving the
washer runing with little water.
Any one knows the problem for this type of fault?
Thank in advance.
D/w make, model#, approx age??
Volt meter on the fill valve...check for power ( normally 110-120 volt
AC ) and when the water quits is the power still there?...
NO - timer/control, float, float switch, wiring
YES - bad fill valve.
Not always...the fill valve coil can heat up and quit or the fill valve
can simply fail mechanically.
