Question about Kenmore 24 in. 15079 Built-in Dishwasher
The water is going all over thr floor and water will continue to flood unless main water shut off valve is turned off. This happened once Saturday. We emptied washer and hit drain, it drained. Did a quick wash and nothing happened. Did another normal wash all was fine but last night Tuesday at night the normal wash had a flood problem again.
This time more water and I hit cancel & drain, but 2 minutes later the program was off and no light was lite. I hit drain again and shut off water and it did drain. Please help we took off spinnner and all seems fine. No clogs and we can't find what is the matter. Help!!!!!
It sounds like the float valve is clogged and or you have a timer problem (which is way down on the list of probabilities...very rare...last thing to happen generally ...but not impossible.)....on the floor of the DW is a round Mushroom looking float valve that rises with the water and shuts the water off at a specific time...usually when full....it often gets gunk in it...(soap...debris...etc) and it sticks in the down...too much water...or in the up...no water....position...take it off...just lift up...and listen for a clicking noise...check to see if it is clean...if not clean it and replace it...push it up and down listening for the clicking noise...if you don't hear one...then it may not be making contact with the contactor...check to see that it does...and it it is and no contact noise with movement replace the contact.
Also some DW's have a sump (drain ) area where water collects to drain...sometimes debris collects in this area....and inhibits drainage...check to see that no debris (careful could be broken glass) is inhibiting drainage.
Hope this helps....and good luck...let me know if it does not... thanks for rating my effort...The Fang.

The dishwasher drain hose may be clogged. When the dishwashr starts up can you hear the water running into the Sink faucet drain. If not inspect the hose that attaches to the Sink Drain for restrictions. Also in the bottom of the dishwasher you should have a filter. If this filter is clogged you cannot expel water. Clean the filter.
