My diplomat apd8703 over filled and flooded yesterday, this morning the machine would not fill and as a result burnt out the heating element, i have disconnected the pipe for the level sensor blown through it and reconnected it, now the machine fills correctly ( although the heater element is gone ) the worrying part now is that i did not find a blockage in the level sensor pipe and cannot understand what i have done to fix the problem, could what i have done have solved the problem or should i look further ?

Re: diplomat apd8703 filling problems
If I were u, I wud check the hose or chamber where the water level switch hose is terminated for any blockage or obstruction there as this is often the cause of the prob, u were certainly on the right track.

Sounds like its syphoning out the water. If it was overfilling, you would have water everywhere, the machine would eventually flood. Check the drain hose. Make sure the end is higher than the water level in the machine and that there are no extensions running outside which have an end lower than the water level in the machine, it will start syphoning, usually after the first pump out.
I understand that your Frigidaire washer, model# ATF6000ES, continues to fill with water until it floods out. I suggest resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at the circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. When power has been restored, select any cycle and start it. If your washer is still overfilling and flooding out, I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They will be able to diagnose your appliance and determine what is causing it to overfill and flood. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your refrigerator status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.
fill valve may be hanging open and can be very intermitant may be switch but ck valve first start water entering machine shut washer off and notice if valve takes extra time to shut off if it does would suspect valve problem
Door not shut Check that the door is properly shut.Faulty interlock A faulty interlock might not allow the door to shut properly. Find your door interlock here and replace, or contact a qualified repairer. No power Check the flex, plug wiring, fuse and mains supply for faults. Faulty on/off switch Check the power light if fitted. Replace your on/off switch. Water supply disconnected or off If a washer dryer cannot load water it cannot start a wash cycle. Check water supply.
