Today, the most impor­tant assis­tant to the host­ess in the kitchen is the dish­wash­er. The home unit is able to clean­ly wash dirty dish­es of var­i­ous types. But as with any house­hold appli­ance, var­i­ous prob­lems can also hap­pen with it. Often, appli­ance own­ers are faced with the fact that the dish­wash­er does not draw water. This may indi­cate both seri­ous break­downs and minor defects, or con­nec­tion errors.

Home dishwasher does not draw water: causes of breakdowns and malfunctions

Cur­rent­ly, house­hold appli­ances are used by var­i­ous man­u­fac­tur­ers — Aris­ton, Bosch, Beko, Siemens, Aeg. They dif­fer from each oth­er in tech­ni­cal para­me­ters — dimen­sions, capac­i­ty, pow­er, ener­gy con­sump­tion and var­i­ous oper­at­ing modes. Despite this, the prin­ci­ples of oper­a­tion as a whole are approx­i­mate­ly the same, there­fore, one can con­sid­er the same rea­sons due to which water does not enter the machine.

The most com­mon caus­es of dish­wash­er fail­ure are:

  • mal­func­tion or incor­rect con­nec­tion of the intake fil­ter;
  • clogged inter­nal water fil­ters;
  • door mal­func­tion;
  • incor­rect oper­a­tion of the water lev­el sen­sor (pres­sure switch);
  • con­trol sys­tem mal­func­tions.

The trade­mark of the dish­wash­er, as already men­tioned, does not play a spe­cial role. The caus­es of break­downs are usu­al­ly about the same, so you can con­sid­er the days and the same options, as well as repair meth­ods.

How­ev­er, some mod­els of machines, usu­al­ly more mod­ern ones, are equipped with the AquaStop sys­tem. It is a leak pro­tec­tion sys­tem. The hose through which water enters is cov­ered with a pro­tec­tive cov­er. In the event of an acci­dent, the sys­tem is able to shut off the water sup­ply. In some cas­es, a mal­func­tion of the AquaStop sys­tem pre­vents water from being drawn into the dish­wash­er. This option also can­not be dis­count­ed.

Why is the dishwasher not getting water?

Usu­al­ly, a break­down of house­hold appli­ances can seri­ous­ly scare you, but you should not wor­ry ahead of time. On your own, it is quite pos­si­ble to estab­lish the main caus­es of the mal­func­tion of your own equip­ment, if you approach this issue cor­rect­ly. Most often, the equip­ment does not work due to the fact that the hose through which water enters is not con­nect­ed cor­rect­ly.

If the machine worked prop­er­ly for a long time, and then sud­den­ly does not pump water, then the whole thing may be clogged fil­ters. Dirt accu­mu­lates in the pipes, pre­vent­ing the flow of water.

Some­times the own­ers of the equip­ment do not notice that the water hose is squashed by some­thing or the front door sim­ply does not close tight­ly for some rea­son. The unit itself only buzzes and refus­es to start the cycle. Lit­tle things like that can seri­ous­ly ruin your expe­ri­ence.

Dishwasher does not draw water — what to do?

Experts offer sev­er­al effec­tive and use­ful tips that allow you to con­duct a kind of diag­no­sis at home. To do this, it is rec­om­mend­ed to do a few sim­ple steps:

  • make sure there is water in the tap;
  • check if the inlet valve is acci­den­tal­ly blocked;
  • pay atten­tion to how tight­ly the door is closed.

dishwasher valve

Such advice some­times seems naive, but often the rea­son lies pre­cise­ly in this. Heavy objects can fall on the dish­wash­er, block­ing valves or squeez­ing hoses. Over time, the door itself can also fail, because of which it ceas­es to close poor­ly. In this case, water does not enter inside, since the sen­sor does not receive an enabling sig­nal.

Diagnosing the causes and troubleshooting of the dishwasher

Ordi­nary tap water is quite hard, so over time, salt deposits and just pol­lu­tion form on the walls. In nar­row places, such as the valve of a dish­wash­er, a kind of plug forms. In this case, it is nec­es­sary to block the access of water inside with a tap. After that, you can dis­con­nect the water hose and remove the mesh fil­ter. Clean it with spe­cial means and con­nect every­thing back.

Over time, the intake valve can break, so it stops open­ing when the sig­nal is giv­en. The machine just buzzes or is com­plete­ly silent. This hap­pens peri­od­i­cal­ly due to pow­er surges or some­thing sim­i­lar. Only a com­plete replace­ment of this part will help to cor­rect the sit­u­a­tion.

tightly closed dishwasher door

The dish­wash­er door should close with a dis­tinc­tive click. If not, then it is clear­ly bro­ken. In this case, it is bet­ter to con­tact spe­cial­ists who can replace the lock­ing device.

Approx­i­mate­ly the same sit­u­a­tion devel­ops with the pres­sure switch of the dish­wash­er — water lev­el sen­sors. It pro­vides infor­ma­tion about the state of the water inside. If this mod­ule fails, then the smart machine sim­ply does not under­stand how much water needs to be poured inside. It is pos­si­ble to elim­i­nate the mal­func­tion only after the com­plete replace­ment of the mod­ule.

The mod­ern AquaStop sys­tem is designed to pre­vent the risks of leaks, but some­times it also brings var­i­ous prob­lems. “Smart” tech­nol­o­gy requires con­trol by spe­cial­ists. They car­ry out diag­nos­tics, after which they car­ry out repairs or com­plete­ly change it.

Do not for­get that many of the prob­lems are quite typ­i­cal, but some­times the own­ers are faced with some­thing unusu­al. If stan­dard actions do not help, then it is bet­ter to find out from spe­cial­ists what to do and why the equip­ment fails.
