It's look like a water level switch issue. The switch level is usually a diaphragm device with a small clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. I am not familiar with this specific machine, but if you will open the rear panel you should find it easily. You can either clear any obstruction in the tube or to replace the switch. Good luck !

I have just reeived a Kelvinator dishwasher KD12WW. I have only a cold water outlet can I still wash with it

I found a site that is important for you to down load the site is
It is a pdf version of the instruction manual for the dishwasher
I notice that one of the instructions is quote" when using your dishwasher , you should prevent plastic items from contacting the heating element" un quote
most all dishwashers heat their own water above what human hands can stand so from that statement you can use cold water inlet only and the machine will heat it to operating temperature
I got that site by going google and typing in --kelvinator kd12ww dishwasher
then I selected site manual-kelvinator kd12ww dishwasher clicked on that and that address came up with the pdf manual
there are other sites that have parts manuals and heaps of other information
call your local kelvinator service agent and ask them about a heating element

I have a Kelvinator KD12WW1 dishwasher and the bottom rack does not get cleaned. Please advise me on how to check what is wrong.

It's possible, but check to make sure a knife or fork or something is not sticking down below the lower rack and stopping the arm from turning. Turn the lower wash arm with your hand to make sure nothing is caught in there. A stuck float would probably not let the unit fill or drain properly.

User manual for kelvinator extreme clean KD12WW

Need to check if Rinse Aid is not exhausted in the dispenser. It could also be necessary to increase the flow rate of rinse aid. Also make sure the dishwasher is heating water as some dishwashers use steam to dry. If heater is faulty the steam will not be there.

I've got a Kelvinator dishwasher KD12MM bought second hand, the machine goes on but does not pump water. Please help

Possible that the pump has clogged or is jammed with dirt. you will need to remove the pump and clean the pump assembly for a good spray pressure. If this wont work then the pump is faulty and needs to be replaced.Check this link for tips:

Washing Powder will not flush out well

Start by buying a box of brand name dishwasher powder like Electrosol or Cascade. Use only it, not a cheap generic powder.
Please post back here with the results of this step and we can take the next step if needed. But I bet the step above will take care of your main problem.

This is a common problem with this machine. Per the manual E4 indicates that the machine is overloaded but this is incorrect. The machines has actually become water logged due to a design fault whereby some water is allowed to pool at the bottom of the machine rather being efficiently drained. Note that the area where the water pools is not rust resistant. To temporarily overcome the E4 error, tilt your machine backwards and the excess water will drain out the back corners. Remember to put some towels down to avoid a big mop up operation afterwards. I live in a coastal area so drain the machine this way once a month and then open up the back of the machine (don't do this if still under warrantee) to dry it out completely to minimise the rust.

SMEG Dishwasher - Water fill level is too low

Hi, I found your problem stuck here from one year ago.

I will post my solution the same, as reference for you and more users with same problem, apologies.

Re: smeg dishwasher fails to fill with enough water to sucessfully wash. It does put some water in.. but nowhere near enough.

Before checking parts inside the machine, ensure that water is coming from the faucet at the back with regular pressure.

To start check the water level sensor.

This is usually a floater sensor located on a side inside the dishwasher.

Check if water level is working properly, if the floater is getting stuck then that is the problem.

If the water level is OK, then the responsible is usually the inlet valve, or clogged inlet lines.

From description it looks more like a faulty water level.
