Major Appliances/Dishwasher


QUESTION: I have a 1997 Frigidaire dishwasher FDB949GF serial number TH94263399 When I turn on my dishwasher the lights come on but no water enters the machine.  the machine will go through the whole cycle but nothing happens.  their is some water in the bottom that I can't get out nothing wants to run.  I cleaned out under the sprayer but nothing works  Any ideas what to look for?

ANSWER: Check the water inlet valve.  this is the valve your home water supply connects to.  There are two wires going to the valve.  Remove the connection and stick the probes of a voltage meter in there and then turn the unit on at the beginning of a start cycle.  While watching the meter, allow the unit to run for at least five minutes.  Did the voltage meter ever read 110 volts....give or take?  I need to know this before I can instruct further....
