    I have the same problem. It appears to be the pressure switch which senses the water level, but I can't find anything wrong with it when I disassemble it!

I think I know how to solve your problem. The pressure switch that controls the water supply valve can be accessed from the rear of the dishwasher. Take off the panel that is on the left, viewed from the rear. The pressure switch will be at the upper left with a two part tube leading down to the water sump area. Take the tube apart and clean it out. Any clog is most likely in the lower area, larger diameter tube. When you have the 'clamp' removed, you can pull the large tube off the reducer fitting. If the reducer fitting does not have any debris itself, you probably don't have to disassemble and clean out the upper part of the tube, but you could just to be sure. The first time I had this problem, I just blew out the lower tube. This time I really cleaned it out. To clean the lower part of the tube I used a doubled coat hanger wire. I straightened the tube and inserted the doubled wire, rotated it a few times, and pulled it out. It was covered with gunk. I actually repeated this process several times until it came out relatively clean. I reassembled the dishwasher and it is back to working fine.

Dishwasher keeps running to long


Most likely the hot water temperature is the problem. If you have a separate hot water inlet check that the water temperature is ok. But if you only have a single cold water inlet then the heater inside dishwasher may be faulty. Check if the dishwasher is still cold when you terminate the cycle.
Heater is part 13 in this diagram.

Whirlpool dishwasher just keeps filling? help please


check on the floor of the dishwasher on front left side. There should be a round float that is the overflow cut off. \make sure that it will go up and down. This is what shuts off the water.

WHERE is the float switch on a frigidaire dishwater model # fmb330rgso


I am not aware of any float switch in this model. If this a portable dishwasher and assuming the water inlet connection is open, it is likely the water inlet solenoid could be faulty. Check this site for location of parts.

My bosch shx46a05UC/14 will not shut off. I can open the door and the dishwasher just keeps going?


Are you please able to confirm what exactly is happening when you mention "dishwasher just keeps going".

Is it in a wash cycle and throwing the water around through the wash arms or do you just hear a pump running with water sitting in the base. Most likely there is a leak into the base and the auto stop circuit is trying to empty the dishwasher by running the drain pump. I would suggest you check the base of dishwasher for leaks.

No water coming in after sink blockage


Sounds simple , but the plumber may have shut the dishwasher water off. Valve is probably under the sink or near the machine in the basement or crawl space. Good luck.

Water keeps running into dishwasher causing overflow


I had a diswasher with thils problem several years ago. The problem was wiith the plastic float at the bottom. It had hardend greese buildup that kept the float from moving freely. Removing the float and cleanning fixed the problem.

Water wont stop going in


You stated that your house is new. I see this frequently and what has likely happened is the installer used pipe dope to seal the elbow that screws into the bottom of the dishwasher water valve. They should have used Teflon thread tape instead as the pipe dope will get into the diaphram in the water valve, clog the tiny holes in it and ruin the water valve. The valve on the dishwasher will need to replaced. Hopefully the company that takes care of the warranty doesn't charge you for it. They should back-charge the installer.

Since water doesn't drain out,it could be a clog in the drain line. Often the problem is at the point where the drain line attaches to the garbage disposer or household drain line. You should remove this line and clear it form any debris in the hose or the hose connection. Be sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher again. Good luck!
