The float sits on a microswitch. The shaft ot the float comes through the tub and rests on it,when the water level rises, the float lifts off the switch.

Good Luck!

My machine seems to be stuck on a drain cycle


Sounds like your 'anti flood' system is activated. This happens when a leak fills the drip tray on the base of the machine, and a anti flood float switch senses water in the tray. Leaks can come from several sources - loose pipes, leaking door gaskets - even opening the door while the machine is hot! i.e. to add an extra item after the machine has started, for example. ISOLATE THE POWER and examine the base tray, if its a free standing machine tip the machine back at an angle (The Hemlich manoeuvre for Dishwashers lol) and the water will flood out - if built in, remove the lower front panel. Once the water is removed, the machine should start - but if the problem occurs, the leak is still there. Zanussi machines are tricky - you'll probably need an engineer to sort it out - expect not much change out of £100. Cheers!

9E error code on dmt800rhs dishwasher


I also had the 9E error code on my Samsung dishwasher DMT800RHS mmodel. I had to call Samsung and the nearest authorized Samsung service representative came to my house last Tuesday, January 29, 2013. The cost of the call is $100 which really annoyed me off considering the dishwasher is only 1 1/2 years old. Two South Korean guys showed up and to fix the problem just press down on the Heavy, Delicate and Power button at the same time for a few seconds and a menu will appear on the top left hand corner of the panel. Scroll down the menu by pressing the Normal button until you reach "FT" and the dishwasher will automatically fill up and then autimatically drain. If it does not drain then scroll down to "S" and the dishwasher will drain. Thsi should get rid of the 9E error message and your dishwasher will work fine but if not you have to repeat the procedure maybe 2 or 3 times until the 9E error message disappears. If you constantly get the 9E error message then you may need to replace the part which is about $60. The part is extremely sensitive to either hard water or food particles which is why the 9E error message appears. Therefore, scrape your dishes thoroughly so the food particles are minimized and the sensor does not go off which causes the 9E error message.

My dishwasher leaks. I've replaced the gasket but it still leaks. What do I do now?


check your float valve in the bottom of the dishwasher. I just had this problem and was confused for quite some time and then I noticed the float valve was not always "clicking" every time I picked it up and down...it turned out that the switch that is on the bottom of the dishwasher that is attached to the float was binding on the cover that surrounds it, so all I did was shave a bit of the plastic from the edges of the cover and now it works great! Good Luck!

GE Potscrubber disher - water leaks out while filling


I would try removing the cover and make sure the float isn't sticking. On mine the float pushes on a rod that goes through the tub to a micro switch. When you hit it, it probably frees it up for a while. Hope that helps.

Kenmore dishwasher door leaks replaced gasket still leaks model#665.15669992 gasket replacement sears #3376927


check your overflow float inside the machine. it looks like a small hat or cone. it should move freely up and down. if it is stuck down, the water will continue to flow in. the gasket is designed to stop splashing water. it is not an underwater seal. good luck

I have a hotpoint HDA3400G02BB leaking from bottom front. I'm guessing door gasket?


that is a good guess, but you should also check the overflow float inside the machine. if it is stuck down, then it may be overfilling. the gasket is supposed to stop splashing water. it is not an under water seal. if the float moves freely, its gotta be the gasket. good luck

At some point the dishwasher leaks onto the floor. what could be the possible problem?


this are the possibilities for the leak :-----
Door gasket loose/torn
Corner gaskets or door baffle/vent gasket
Door lock/latch loose/broken
Split spray arm
Over filling with water...usually the level is just under the heating element is normal
Something leaking through the door...like the soap or rinse agent dispenser gasket, silverware basket button.
Door hinge(s) bent
Wrong soap was used...dish sink soap instead of dishwasher soap
Rinse aid being used with mechanically softened water ( makes foam or suds inside the dishwasher )

Leaks from under the unit:
Look for whiting or calcium stain on the motor and pump assembly = motor and pump assembly seal leak...access panel removal help
Hose for upper spray arm split
Fill hose split or fill hose spout air inlet is calcium covered
Drain hose is split
Rusted liner...metal liners only
Fill valve leaking or allowing water to fill all the time
Heating element ends....where they come out through the dishwasher liner
Float or float gasket.

Kenmore Elite Dishwasher - leaks from Overfill Protection Float


I had the same problem, but mine leaked every time. I have a kenmore ultra wash dishwasher no. 665.15762. I took the bottom rotating sprayer off and found that the plastic piece under the sprayer had a few loose screws and the rubber gasket, under that piece, had blown out at the corner facing the overfill protection float. I took out all the screws and re-mounted the gasket in place and put all the screws back and tightened them. It solved the problem. I hope that this helps others.

No water entering dishwasher


If there's no water entering your dishwasher, check these:

Water-inlet valve
Float switch
Water-inlet valve
The water-inlet valve lets water enter the machine. If this valve is defective, you need to completely
replace it. It's usually located behind the lower access panel on the left or right side. It's the device
with the main water line (usually copper) from the house, a rubber tube to the dishwasher, and two
wires attached to it.

Float switch
The float switch is a small electrical switch that's located right below the dishwasher "floor."
Above the switch, on the inside of the dishwasher, is a plastic cylinder that floats up as water fills
the dishwasher. If this switch is defective, or if the plastic float gets caught or trapped in the raised
position, the water can't enter the dishwasher. If the float switch is defective, you need to replace it.
