Water keeps running into dishwasher causing overflow

When the dishwasher is turned off water is still running into the dishwasher from a hole in the side of the dishwasher causing it to fill and overflow. The hole has a plastic piece witrh a plastic nut. I shut the water off under the sink to the dishwasher and the water stopped running out of the fill hole.

    The plastic float is working. Water runs into the dishwasher unless I turn off the water supply to the dishwasher under the sink. It might be the water inlet valve - does anyone know if you can clean these or do they have to be replaced?

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.

Hi... I just bought Electrolux Dishwasher ESF2433W. When i first time turn it on, light at "Normal" button keep on flashing with beeping sound. After checking the trouble shooting manual, it actually refer...


E4 Overflow

Sometimes during trasport it is possible that styrofoam float mechanicaly activated overflow microswitch. So, you should check complitely overflow system.

At any time, if overflow micro-switch act and keep for longer than 2 seconds, the E4 would occur. When E4 occurs, the drain pump will run until flowmeter keep motionless for 2 minutes (if the model with the pressure switch (83/63),drain pump would run till the pressure switch reset and continue draining for 60 seconds.) and all the other components will be stopped immediately. At the same time, the buzzer will alarm for 30 seconds and error 4 will be shown. Note: Priority level of E4 is the highest. E4 operation is valid after other error operations have done. When E4 operation has done, all the others are invalid.

The water keeps running inside the dishwasher slowly like a valve will not close all the way, water will overflow if I dont turn it off


You are on the right track...On Comerical Dishmachines this happens when mineral deposits build up in the rinse or fill solenoid blocking it from closing all the way. We install a rebuild kit and delime the solenoid itself.

On a home machine this is not really a practical solution due to their construction.

Best thing to do is locate the valve and replace it in as they are often plastic sealed units on household dishmachines.

In addition your machine should have an overflow drain hole somewhere which may be clogged with food or debries. Snake it whith a single strand of thick copper wire.

Good Luck..

I was an idiot and put dishsoap in the dishwasher because I ran out of regular dishwasher soap. Now the dishwasher keeps overflowing with bubbles. I keep wiping all the bubbles and extra water out but...


you must rinse all the soap out the best way is to make the drain hose lower than the tub of the washer and run the garden hose into the drum and slowly rotate the drum as you rinse it out after a complete rinse you should run a rinse and spin cycle a few times and you should be fine.

Dishwasher overflows


Sounds like you've got a problem with the water intake valve(s). If it takes on water without water running in the sink, that is where I would look. If it happens when you use the sink, then I would also check your drain hose placement

Dishwasher overflows when running and when not running still fills without draining


Check the water fill valve - sounds like it's stuck open. Turn the power to the machine off. If water continues to fill into the machine it's the water fill valve. If so...

Take the front lower cover off and look for the valve - it will have a water line going to it. This could also be caused by a bad control board, but look at the water valve first.

Water refilling after dishwasher is cycled off


Leave the D/W door open and make sure the water is not coming from the water inlet .
It may be oozing up from the bottom when you run water in the kitchen sink.
Does your dishwasher vent through a counter top Y siphon. It could be clogged causing water to re-enter the D/W.
