Troubleshooting

Question and Answers

Q:

Why did my Kenmore Elite dishwasher model 665.13762K600 suddenly stop filling even though the float moves freely?

A:

Make sure that the water supply cut-off valve is open for the dishwasher.

You did not mention whether you hear the solenoid water valve buzzing when the dishwasher should be filling with water or whether the dishwasher continues with the cycle after the fill sequence. If the control powers up but the valve does not buzz to indicate that it is energized (and the cycle does not continue after the fill sequence), then you could have a problem with the door switch. Make sure that the door is closing properly. Push inward on the door to see if the dishwasher will start with this pressure applied to the front of the door.

Lack of voltage to the fill valve could also be caused by a blown bi-metal safety fuse on the power supply to the control board as shown in the strip diagram of the fill circuit shown below. You could also have a bad control board, a failed float switch, an open water solenoid valve coil or a wiring failure between components. If you have the ability to shut off the breaker to disconnect electrical power and check the continuity of components through this circuit, you may be able to determine the cause of your fill problem. If you are not able to determine the cause of this problem, then you may need to contact a service technician to diagnose and repair this failure.

If the fill valve is buzzing but the dishwasher is not filling, then it is likely that you have a water supply problem or a failed inlet water solenoid valve failure.

If you need more help, resubmit your question with additional details.

Thanks for the detailed response. I finally found my problem and Im embarassed to say that the safety pressure valve inside the external flexible water hose was triggered, due to high pressure in my house hot water pipes. This is following a water-heater maintenance, where extra pressure build-up was introduced within the house hot water plumbing. All I had to do is to disconnect the water hose from my the input under kitchen sink, tap the hose built-in safety valve a few times and reconnect the hose.
