Question about Kenmore 15129 Built-in Dishwasher
Water comes out of "fill funnel" on side of dishwasher when energising the water valve, it comes out of the small rectanged hole in the fill funnel. If I turn down the water pressure to the dishwasher the water does not overflow from this point. Is it nessasary to have this airation system or can I block the hole with something? John
Hi . the air gap is required by law, to have it there.to stop water in the tub, to end up in your water system, which would never happen. try setting the pressure down, and use the dishwasher. it should work fine . turn down taps ,till it stops leaking . should be ok

Tips for a great answer:
When the Dishwasher won't fill you'll need to check for the water inlet hose, the water inlet valve and the float switch assembly. When the water fills your dishwasher, a float rises along with it. As the float reaches a certain threshold level, it shuts off the flow of water, thereby preventing a leak. Sometimes the float can get stuck in the wrong position in your dishwasher, and it can prevent your dishwasher from filling. Sometimes it can happen due to float valve and on other occasions due to float switch. Inspect the water hose coming to the dishwasher for any blockages. If the hose is not clogged then check the water inlet valve for any clogs, if the water will not even fill for few seconds then certainly the water inlet valve is bad and should be replaced. You can also use a multimeter to check continuity on inlet valve. If you don't get any value on the multimeter then you'll need to replace the water inlet valve assembly. However, if the valve is fine then the float switch assembly should be replaced. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.
