Question about Dishwashers
I just bought a new house with a kenmore built in dishwasher. i tried to run a cycle and when i opened dishwasher to check if it was running there was no water in it. i looked under my sink and realized there was a shut off valve for. i turned the valve on and water started coming out of the side into the washer. the problem is that the water doesnt turn off, it keeps filling the washer through every cycle and after the washer turns off. any ideas??? sorry i dont have the model number.
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.
