If the dishwasher won’t clean dishes, it might not be getting enough water. There is an electrical valve called a water inlet valve which opens to allow hot water into the dishwasher. If this valve has failed or is clogged the dishwasher won’t clean the dishes properly. The valve cannot be cleaned or repaired and should be replaced.
If the dishwasher won’t clean dishes, check the wash arm assembly. If the center wash arm isn’t getting water, all of the dishes in the upper rack will come out dirty. Check to be sure the center wash arm assembly is mating properly with the water supply nozzle in the back of the dishwasher. Also check to be sure the little holes in the center wash arm aren’t clogged or blocked.
If the dishwasher won’t clean the dishes the pump and motor assembly might be defective. Once the dishwasher fills with water, the pump forces the water through the wash arms in order to spray the dishes. If the motor is defective, the pump impeller is broken, or some part of the pump is clogged, the dishes won’t be clean. If the pump and motor has power to it and will not run it will need to be replaced.
On some models there is a small, replaceable impeller on the pump motor. As the motor spins, the impeller forces the water up through the wash arms. If the impeller is missing some of its fins or is broken it may not be able to produce the necessary pressure. The impeller can be replaced independently of the motor and pump assembly on some models.
If the dishwasher won’t drain, the drain pump might be defective. The drain impeller is attached to the pump and pushes the water out of the dishwasher, through the drain tube and into the garbage disposer or drain line. If the dishwasher won’t drain, the drain impeller might be broken or worn out.
If the dishwasher won’t drain, the drain solenoid kit might need to be replaced. The drain solenoid is an actuator that opens a flap to allow the water to drain.
The drain valve can get clogged with debris and should be cleaned out if the dishwasher won’t drain. If it seems clear of debris but won’t actuate, it will need to be replaced. The drain valve is not repairable.
If the dishwasher won’t drain and the garbage disposer was installed recently, the installer might have forgotten to knock out the drain plug from this disposer. All garbage disposers are sold with a solid plug in the drain tube for situations where a dishwasher isn’t connected. However, if the dishwasher is connected, the plug will need to be removed. If the disposer wasn’t replaced recently, the dishwasher drain hose has to be cleaned. .
If the dishwasher won’t drain the drain hose might be clogged.  The most common place for an obstruction is at the garbage disposer.
If the dishwasher won’t drain the check valve might be stuck closed. The check valve is a device which prevents water from returning to the dishwasher after it has drained. If the valve gets stuck closed, it will prevent the water from draining. The check valve is located in or at the outlet of the pump that the drain hose attaches to. Sometimes the check valve is accessed from the inside of the unit depending on the model.
If the dishwasher is leaking water the water inlet valve might be defective. If the water inlet valve sticks open, it will allow water to fill the dishwasher continuously. Some customers report that they see clean water filling the bottom of the dishwasher after it’s been sitting all night or for a couple of days. If this happens, turn off the water that is supplying the dishwasher. This is normally a valve under the kitchen sink. The  the water inlet valve has to replaced, it cannot be repaired. The water valve needs at least 20 lbs pressure to shut off properly. If your water pressure is to low replacing the valve may not solve the problem.
If  the dishwasher is leaking water the  wash arm assembly might be defective. If the  wash arm has a crack or split on the end, it can force water to spray directly toward the lower part of the dishwasher door. Then, the water can be forced under the door and onto the floor. Check the  wash arms for any cracks or splits it has to  replaced  if necessary.
Every dishwasher door has a door seal. If the dishwasher is leaking water, it might be that the door seal is defective or worn out. Try closing the dishwasher door on a dollar bill and see if the door seal is making good contact all the way around the door. If not, replace the door seal. If the door seal is good or has been replaced and there is still a leak check the door hinges. If the hinges are bent the door will not close properly and the hinges will need to be replaced.
