Re: Machine refills with water after cycle

Check first that water supply pipe isn't bend. Water supply to the dishwasher is done through an electromagnet valve,loocated at the pipe's enterance to the machine. Test that it get power (with a multi- meter). In case it get power and dosen't work - You can easyly open the valve and clean it (from scale or other dirt). Be aware you should disconnect the power cable from the machine before doing it !!!!! Check as well for valve's coil resistance. In case you have no resistance measurement - you should replace the valve. Good luck !

Washing machine refills after spin cycle

Can you hear the pump running if not the machine may be syphoning out, if the outlet is into the down pipe too far this can cause it to syphon. The outlet should only be into it by about 6". The machine will fill with more water on the rince than the wash cycle that will cause the problem. If you can hear the pump running the machine mite be over filling there may a blockage in the presure system if you take the lid off (making sure the powers turned off) you will find a round switch with a thin hose comming off it tace the hose and you should find a small bottle this may be blocked. Hope this helps you.

Lint or soap residue

Sounds more like a build-up of particles that may very well be in the water supply. There is something that you can try to get rid of these particles.

1. With the machine empty start it in normal eash mode and let it fill. Add 1/2 cup bleach to the water and let the machine run completely through the wash cycle. This will help remove any unseen stains or build-up.

2. When the machine drains and begins to refill on the next cycle, add 1/2-1 cup of white vinegar and again, let the machine finish its' cycle.

3. Run the machine through the wash cycle one more time to remove any vinegar that may have been left behind.

This is not a guaranteed method but I have had some success.

Water level drops during wash/rinse cycle

Check the exit hose behind, it should be at least 3 feet from ground level, and not too deep into the wall stand-pipe. You will find a level mark behind the machine......check this out.

Your pump pumps this water OVER this height.
