The motor on most dryers sits approx 1 inch off of floor on bottom base plate.if you had more water than that,you have a open motor winding.aprox price for repair if u call a tech is $300.washers stand a better chance of surviving a flood,dryers very rarely do.

My washer didn't stop filling water

sounds like progammer fault. As water and electricity is involved do not tackle any of the job yourself, call in a repair technician immediately. switch of at mains and just leave it is my advice.
It may well be repairable but if some item in my home lets me down that badly I tend to replace because the cost of new machines is not so high any more. If you intend to replace rather than repair check reviews for the most efficient and most reliable machines, I have found siemens to be the best

Good Luck

Tries to start but floods plugs

Do you mean it fouls the plugs with oil or does your engine flood with gas? If the plugs are involved you will need to clean them up really good and make sure they are gapped properly, or just buy a set of new ones. Check to see if you smell a large quantity of gas in the oil. If you do then give it an oil change.

BMW K1200RS all injectors open gas flooding in

I have done some digging on this - how good is your mechanic? Is it a BMW service centre?
I have had three of these and have been heavily involved in the tech side for all three and have never heard of this problem - I spoke to my mechanic (15 years BMW Motorrad) and he has never heard of this either... I would go get a second opinion.

Dish washer not working, lights come on but nothing happens, will not drain water that is in there either.

flooding the sink won't have anything to do with the dishwasher.unless the check valve on the dishwasher got stuck closed. Can you hear the pump come on?

Bosch dishwasher model shu3300

Your machine has detected a "flood" condition and has defaulted to its flood mode. Meaning that only the drain pump will work until the flood is fixed.

Bosch D/W's are pretty slick, the entire unit is sitting inside a drain pan that's designed to catch an overflow (flood) keeping the water off of your floor. This overflow pan has a Styrofoam float that rises with the flood and trips the "flood mode". The water in the pan has to be removed allowing the float to drop back down before you can use your dishwasher again.

There are 2 ways to do this... the easy way and the hard way.

1.) Easy way---> Wait a few days. The water will eventually evaporate out of the drain pan all by itself. Takes longer than the hard way, but no tools are involved.

2.) Hard way---> (not actually "hard") TURN POWER OFF TO THE DISHWASHER! Remove the lower kick panels (below the door). Remove the 2 screws holding the water valve in place, and push the valve up as far as you can. Now use a "Shop-Vac" with a long crevice tool attachment. Stick the crevice tool in where the valve was... make sure to reach in there about 8 or 9 inches, (the safety float is in there on the left, you can see it with a flashlight) otherwise it won't reach the water. Now simply suck up as much water as you can. You won't be able to get it all, you just need enough removed to drop the float.

Now try your D/W... after a normal 2 minute drain, it should fire right up.
