SOURCE: flood protection is activating

I have had the KUDD01DPPA drawer dishwasher since 12/30/05. The "Flood Switch" has been activated 8 TIMES. Our dishwasher is not freestanding - it is under the counter; therefore it does not move. Tilting it would be impossible. We've had service on it twice. There answer to us was to "shut off the breaker for several days and see it that works." We need another dishwasher!

SOURCE: flood protection is activating

Had the same problem on a Miele mashing. In my case trying to clear a drain blockage in a kitchen sink had probably forced water back into the washing machine and caused an internal leakage. Rather than remove the whole machine and tip it over, I opened the small panel at the front bottom (behind the skirting panel) (needs 'special' screwdriver for the 2 screws) and removed the water that was lying on the base of the machine. Not much (less than 5mm) but enough to lift the white polystyrene float (a round disc about 10cm diameter) which was activating the micro-switch and causing the F70 message.

SOURCE: Dishwasher does not drain, instead drains through overflow valve in sink. No apparent clog seen.

Usually the sink connection is not an overflow, it is the main drain from the dishwasher. It is more likely your s-bend is blocked under the sink- try putting a bucket under it and unscrewing the u-shaped piece and cleaning out (remember don't wash it in that sink while the pipe is off)

Remove the bottom drawer by pressing in the tabs on either side of the drawer (bottom edge towards the front).

Dry out the compartment with towels and let air dry.

Where can I obtain Electrical Schematic details for my Kenmore dishwasher?


Hi Pepper
If Kenmore themselves don't have the Schematics then they may be hard to find. Usually manufacturers don't provide that sort of detail any more.
It's usually easier to use troubleshooting knowledge to figure out where the problem is.
A multimeter is necessary here. Or a test light or buzzer.
Find the solenoid attached to the water drain pipe.
See if it is being actuated electrically. If not then it would be traced back to a timer unit of some sort.
If it is getting voltage (being actuated) then the Diaphragm and Actuator inside the valve section should be disassembled and cleaned. Even tapping the solenoid can often open the valve.
Either way, you have to get inside to have a look and test wires with the voltmeter.
Good Luck

Periodic water leaking from Kenmore Elite K701


hello Adrian. I am suspicious that the standing drain pipe behind your machine may sometimes over flow. To find out, pack some dry newspaper around the drain hose where it enters the drain line behind the machine. If that newspaper gets wet you will know that the drain is sometimes overflowing. If that is the case, snake that drain or force a garden hose down it and run hot water thru it for ten minutes. J.

Hi there, now I do not remember the original problem, if there is not water coming into the appliance, start checking the water pump. Also locate and check the water level floarting switch, that stop the pump.

If water is not drained out, then you need to check the drain pump.

Try entering the exact model number here and see if you can get schematics for your appliance.

Kenmore 17245 won't drain.


Try blowing into the drain line with a wet/dry vac. This sometimes removes clogs. Otherwise, hold the hose above the unit and fill it with water. If there is no clog the water should appear at the bottom of the dishwasher after a few quarts.
