Is the overfill protection float able to move up and down freely? Press down to release.
Be sure the water supply is turned on to the dishwasher. This is very important following the new installation

Check for suds in the dishwasher. If foam or suds are detected by the dishwasher sensing system, the
dishwasher may not operate properly or may not fill with water.

Forgetting to replace the rinse aid dispenser cap after filling (or refilling) the rinse aid.
Using an excessive amount of dishwasher detergent.
Dishes do not dry
Plastic and items with nonstick surfaces are difficult to dry because they have a porous surface, which tends
to collect water droplets. Towel drying may be necessary.
Use of rinse aid along with Heat Dry option is needed for proper drying.
Proper loading of items can affect drying.
Glasses and cups with concave bottoms hold water. This water may spill onto other items when unloading.
Unload the bottom rack first.
For improved results, place these items on the more slanted side of the rack.
Surging sounds can occur periodically throughout the cycle while the dishwasher is draining.
Normal water valve hissing may be heard periodically.
A normal snap sound may be heard when the detergent dispenser opens during the cycle or when the door
is opened at the end of the cycle.
Improper installation will affect noise levels.
Be sure the filters are properly installed.
A thumping sound may be heard if items extend beyond the racks and interfere with the wash arms. Readjust the
dishware and resume the cycle.
