Re: water level

Hi if this machine has a visible heater element then normally when it has filled then starts to wash then u stop programme by opening the door then the water level should be covering the element but be below the lower spray arms by 2.5 centimetres or so like ERAN says when finished you shouldnt see any water in the base but if you take out the grille or base filter then you may see some water under that....

Re: water level

I'm not sure I understand your question. There isn't supposed to be any water left in the tub after operation. If there's any water left it might indicate that the dishwasher does not drain properly. If that's the case - - If the unit is hooked up to a food waste disposer, make sure the disposer is empty. - Check to see if the knockout plug has been removed from inside the food waste disposer inlet. - Check to see if drain hose is kinked. - Make sure cycle is complete, not in a pause.

Dishwasher stops working a few minutes after being started

Make sure the water is turned on to the unit first--next, is there water entering the tub? Check the float switch--the round, plastic, "flying saucer" shaped object at the bottom of the tub. Gently lift up on it and carefully listen for a very soft "click" sound. That is the tiny switch underneath working. If something gets trapped under the float switch, the washer won't fill with water. Next, if water is indeed in the tub, did you hear the motor pump running? If it runs and then stops, there might be a problem with the control board--check to see if the drain pump works properly--cancel the cycle and listen for the drain pump turning on and draining out all the water. On almost all dishwashers, at the start of a cycle, the drain pump will turn on briefly to pump out any standing water left in the motor base(you can't see the water but it's there) so it doesn't get sprayed onto your dishes. Then, fresh, hot water enters the tub, when the water level reaches the proper level, the float switch rises, tells the computer enough water is present, then starts the main pump. If the water is not being drained out, try to listen for the drain motor humming. If it is running but not draining, it is probably jammed with food or other debris and must be cleared. If the water is turned on but no water is entering the tub, check the inlet water valve underneath the washer--the water line is connected directly to it. It is electrical and operates on 120v. You will need to carefully disconnect the connector from the valve, activate a cycle, and using a voltage meter, check to see if 120 volts is present. If it is there and no water is entering, most likely the valve is bad. If there is no voltage at the valve, either a wire is broken or the main board is defective.

Maytag performa dishwasher, model # PDBL390AWB.

Sounds like to me you have a water restriction somewhere. Double check and make sure that the main water valve coming into your home is fully open. Make sure the water shut off valve(s) going to the dishwasher both have adequate water flow and that means testing them before being connected to dish washer. If that checks out okay, possibly the plunger that opens and closes in the electric water solenoid is sticking and not opening up al the way since the unit has been in storage for all that time. Sometimes tapping on it when it is in operation can free up that sticking plunger and you may get full water flow restored again. If not, solenoid may have to be replaced. Hope this helps out.

Water drained out of tube, but dishwasher stops and indicators tell me "drain is plugged."

The drain hose on a dishwasher must be long enough to go up above the water level of the dishwasher and then back down to connect to the sink drain. This is to keep gravity from draining the tank. However, you probably replaced the drain hose the same way it was originally.
Try checking the float and float switch for smooth operation. Maybe the float has debris holding it up from dropping to the true water level.

I have a GE PDW8400JO3BB dishwasher.It use to take 53 minutes to do a normat load and now takes 83 minutes. Why

There could be a few reasons for this..

Most likely the water temperature is not reaching the optimum temperature required for cycle.
The incoming water supply pressure could be lower which means it takes longer to fill.
The turbidity sensor might not be functioning properly causing the dishwasher to prolong the wash cycle.

Best to run the dishwasher empty with a Finish dishwasher cleaning kit that you can purchase from the supermarket. The instructions are written on the kit.

this should help clean dirt from all the sensors that are located in the tub.

Hope this helps.

Blanco dishwasher overflows at end of cycle

There is a float connected to a switch that controls water level. It is usually round and will move freely up and down by hand. But your problem might be a levelling related one. The dishwasher must be level to operate correctly. Use a torpedo level in the tank base to check front to back level and side to side level. Adjust the front legs to level the unit.

Kenmore dishwasher is not washing properly and leaving dirty water in the bottom when it is finished, Can i fix it?

If your washer is overfilling, check these:

Water-inlet valve
Water-level switch
Water-inlet valve A defect in the water-inlet valve may mean that it's no longer able to shut off completely when the electricity has been turned off to it. If this occurs, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub. In time, the water may accumulate substantially. If this happens, you need to replace the valve.

Water-level switch A defect--or an obstruction--in the water-level switch may mean that it can't tell the water to shut off. So the machine overflows. This switch senses the water level in the clothes tub. It's usually a diaphragm device with a small, clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level in the tub increases, the pressure on the air in the tube increases. When the pressure reaches a certain level, it activates the switch, shuts off the water, and signals the timer to begin the agitate cycle. You can either clear any obstruction in the tube or replace the water-level switch.

Water level too high in tub causing water to leak out front

Sounds like the drain hose is disconnected. Check to make sure that the tube is not blocked and is connected properly. If the checks out then you should check your water sensor meter and make sure tht it is stoppingthe system at the correct points.

I'm just wondering how much water should be in the dishwasher for proper cleaning? Should it cover the heating element?

Water level can depend on the model and manufacturer. The water will fill to the level of the float switch. This is a plastic looking thing near the front of the dishwasher along the tub bottom that looks like and upside down cup. The water level reaches a point to where the float lifts and activates a cut-off switch which will stop the water from filling, followed by the wash cycle beginning. Now, depending on where the heating element is located, the water level is usually just touching the element and not necessarilty covering it. Does this help you? If you still have questions, let me know.

Water level

Some water in the tub after the cycle is complete is normal. most dishwashers are time filled with a float switch as a safety device. the actual level depends on the fill time and the water pressure. what exactly is the d/w doing (or not doing) to make you think there is a problem?
