Question about Dishwashers
I just purchased this dishwasher used. Had a friend help me install it. The dishwasher seems to fill with water then slowing empties on to floor for the underneath center part of the unit.
It may have a cracked tub does it drip out of the tub brace (a strip of metal that runs side to side on the bottom of the tub behind the wash motor) Have replaced several for this issue. Have fixed them with good epoxy also. PLEASE rate my help as solved if i answered your question!! Thankx

If the water inlet
valve is fine and it fills with water then the issue seems to be with the float
switch assembly that is bad and should be replaced. Float assembly is found
inside the dishwasher's tub, on the bottom. The water that fills the dishwasher
lifts the float, and when it reaches a certain level, it acts as a trigger for
the float switch. The float triggers the float switch to shut off, thereby
shutting off the flow of water into the dishwasher. A defective switch may
interfere with dishwasher's filling and/or draining ability. Use voltmeter to
test the switch. Set the device to the ohms setting x 1. Take each probe and
touch them to one switch terminal each. This should produce a reading of either
zero or infinity. Continue to touch the probes to the terminals, and press down
on the switch's button. The reading should change to the opposite extreme. If
the switch fails either of these tests, you should replace it. Hope this helps...please post back for
