If when the machine is flooding if you turn off power to the machine and it continues to fill: replace water inlet valve. If flooding water stops filling when power is interupted: clean out the end of the water level switch tube where it connects to the outer wash tub.

I have a 1995 gs 300. The injectors sometimes will add to much fuel n cause the car to shut off n flood. I have to do a flood clear to get it started again. I have had two mechanics run diagnostics but it...

The injectors open and close to feed fuel to cylinders based on data they receive from various censors.

1 of two problems happened.
1) either the water level sensor went bad. Which tells the water inlet valve when to shut off and the machine to start operating.
2) The water inlet valve has failed. This comes from the water hose and fills the washing machine.

Dishwasher is not draining and is flooding out the side

It sounds like the float valve is clogged and or you have a timer problem (which is way down on the list of probabilities...very rare...last thing to happen generally ...but not impossible.)....on the floor of the DW is a round Mushroom looking float valve that rises with the water and shuts the water off at a specific time...usually when often gets gunk in it...(soap...debris...etc) and it sticks in the down...too much water...or in the water....position...take it off...just lift up...and listen for a clicking noise...check to see if it is clean...if not clean it and replace it...push it up and down listening for the clicking noise...if you don't hear one...then it may not be making contact with the contactor...check to see that it does...and it it is and no contact noise with movement replace the contact.

Also some DW's have a sump (drain ) area where water collects to drain...sometimes debris collects in this area....and inhibits drainage...check to see that no debris (careful could be broken glass) is inhibiting drainage.

Hope this helps....and good luck...let me know if it does not... thanks for rating my effort...The Fang.
