Question about Fagor Dishwashers

1 Answer

Fagor dishwasher overflow

Our Fagor LF73DQITV Dishwasher is leaking from the base causing the polystyrene float to rise and cut off the flow. I took the RHS panel off and found that the leak is coming from a small tank to the RHS of the float switch panel (with the relay switch). This small tank contains an orange plastic float, and when switched on this tank fills, the orange float rises and depresses the relay switch above it, but this appears to have no effect and the water keeps overflowing here until the poly-float switch next to it gets activated. I have checked both relays and they are okay, further I have disconnected the electrical aquastop solenoid valve(inline with water inlet pipe) and cleared all debris.) The larger tank to the RHS of this small overflowing tank, which is very thin and contains what seem to be ribs to circulate./mix water does not fill except on a couple of occasions, when it only partly filled but I had to pull the power as the small lower tank was flooding. Thanks - Duncan

Consider that the problem may not be the float as mentioned. Leaking can be as simple as the door seals, or misalignment. If someone slams the door or runs into the door from the side, the normal alignment can be out of adjustment. Check the locking tab under the counter and see it that was moved and reset it. Seems you already fussed with the system and it did not solve the problem.

SOURCE: Bosch SMS4012GB dishwasher. Refused to

An electric switch activated by air pressure. This device detects air pressure exerted on it through a flexible tube connecting it to part of a water tub.
When activated, this switch then opens an electrical circuit stopping further filling of water into the machine.. May also be called a PRESSURE SWITCH. if not activated definately it will cause overflow.

Check the wire harness to the pressure switch. or tap your float switch with finger tips may be it get stacked. if nothin happen replace the pressure switch.
Rate my solution if useful.

SOURCE: Model mdb7160aww Maytag dishwasher won't

Hello, when you move the float switch to the up position the volttage should be 0 seeing how to float switch would be registering that the unit was at its maximum amount of water it would then tell the water inlet valve to stop sending water into the dishwasher. You are supposed to have 110 at the solenoid. What do you have for power going into the machine do you also have the 93-94 or do you have the 110 ? Click this link http://c.searspartsdirect.com/lis_png/PLDM/M0604013-00002.png you also have a wax motor at part 19 on the diagram that if the motor is not working the machine would not send water as well. click this link as well http://c.searspartsdirect.com/lis_png/PLDM/M0604013-00001.png you also have a door switch at part 3 and a holder switch at part 5 if either of these were not working would be another reason for the inlet valve not to be getting the correct amount of power as well. In the description from above note some maytag models have 5 as the door switch. I would test both these switches for continuity to assure that they are working properly. I await your reply if you have any further questions and to the questions that I have asked as well Thanks Rick

Howto get to the float on my 5550 whirlpoop dishwasher


The float is at the base (bottom) and you need to remove the side panels. Mostly self tap screws hold all together. The float is a polystyrene on the base that has a micro switch attached. Once water causes the float to rise, the pump out motor turns on!!!!

I have an LSv66 Ariston dishwasher. When it is switched on, no matter what program, the knob just stays in the same position. It sounds as if the dump pump is running constantly.


The dishwasher overflow detection may have triggered. This causes the drain pump to operate.

The overflow float is located at the base of the diswasher and maybe faulty. It is spring loaded float and should move down and up when pressed. If you cannot find this in your model, then water has leaked into the overflow cavity where the motors are located. This could also trigger the overflow protection circuit.

You have to replace the overflow float if it exists or empty the overflow water in the overflow cavity and dry it out. If leak is taking place then the gasket needs replacement.

Hope you are able to fix the problem with some of the suggestions I have made.

Please rate the solution if you find it helpful otherwise post a comment.

Eco light comes on when I switch on machine but can't change programme and it doesn't work some water still under filter


This indicates water in the base, there is a polystyrene float that operates a cut off switch if water leaks into the base, this could be caused by a leaking pipe connection, or simply by water getting by the door seal and eventually having enough volume in the base te operte the float switch, try tilting the machine backwards if water comes out of the basethen this should cure the problem, but if it recurs fairley quickly you should have the hose connections checked for tightness, can be accessed from the base.
the dishwasher should be isolated from the supply first base tray is secured by 6 screws, the float switch is attached to the base so care should be taken when removing the base tray

Diswasher Pump won't stop running


Introduction: This may work for your problem, but only if you're finding that you cannot get further water to flow into your machine. If your machine fills, OK, then this ISN'T a solution to your problem.

I have a Bosch SHV. My sink drain backed up, and the water accumulating in the sink then migrated to the dishwasher, through the drain pipe, causing the dishwasher to fill up and, it turned out, overflow a little. When I turned on the dishwasher, the water drained, but no new, clean water came through the hot water pipe. The drain just kept running, but nothing else happened.

Here's what happened. Under the main chamber of the dishwasher, by three inches or more, is a white plastic tray. It sits almost at the floor, and it may not be obvious that it's a tray capable of holding water. The overflow water spilled into that tray, which in turn caused a float in the far left side of the tray to lift (the way a toilet float lifts when the water fills in a toilet tank) and shut off the water intake valve (like the toilet float shuts off the toilet water flow). So long as that valve is closed, your machine will not run.

STOP: disconnect power supply at this point for safety.

To see the white plastic tray and thereby fix the problem, you'll need to take off the BLACK TOE-KICK (attached on my unit by two star-head screws at its bottom) and, possibly , the OUTER PANEL OF THE DISHWASHER DOOR (in my case, a custom wood panel (attached by a few screws through the inner side of the door, two screws that are accessed by popping off little--smaller than a dime size--covers on the sides of the doors, and then the door panel lifts up and out). (I took the outer panel off, but I can't remember if I would have had to reach into the white tray without doing so.)

Once you do that, you can see the white plastic tray. It doesn't come out--at least not without removing the entire machine--so try this. You can take your fingers and feel over and into the tray. You'll probably feel the water--I did. Look at the far left of the tray with a flashlight. Back there you'll see a flat, round, 3-inch diameter piece of white plastic sitting at the bottom of the tray. To its center is a generally U-shaped lever looking device, which, at its far left end, is connected to a red stick pointing up into the machine. When water goes into the tray, the float rises, causing the U-shaped lever to rise, causing the red stick to raise, which (though I couldn't see it) causes an electrical signal to run to, and shut, the valve for your water intake.

I took paper towels, and then a narrowly cut sponge, to sop up the water in the tray. I then took my shop vac and, using it as a blower, blew what little water was left right out. You might be able to use a hair dryer, but first sop out what you can or it'll take forever. Once you've done that, put everything back together and plug your dishwasher back in. My buttons are at the top panel. To reset, hold down the two buttons marked for clear drain for three seconds and release. You should be able to start up then. It took 15 seconds before the water started to run, but it did and the machine works fine again.

Interesting note: The valve that stopped the water from flowing in automatically opened once I got the water out of the tray. You don't need to reset the valve.

Good luck.

Water Leak


hi there,
dishwasher leaking might be due to either of these causes, check these:

Main tub seal
Note… If the main motor of your dishwasher is mounted vertically, beneath the center bottom
of the dishwasher, the following instructions probably apply to you.
But if your motor is mounted horizontally, the pump isn't serviceable--you need to replace the
entire pump and motor assembly.

The main tub seal is beneath the drain impeller. It prevents the water in the dishwasher from
leaking out near the shaft of the motor. To get to the seal, which is inside the dishwasher,
remove the:

* Lower rack
*Spray arm
* Spray arm support
* Wash/drain impellers

Then try the seal out of its housing and replace it.

Door gasket or seal
Over time, door gaskets and seals harden and lose their ability to seal properly.
You can't repair the seals. You need to replace them if they've begun to leak.

Water-inlet valve
The water-inlet valve, itself, seldom leaks. But, the water-supply line from the house and the
rubber tube leading from the valve to the inside of the dishwasher may leak. Tighten
or repair/replace these as necessary.

The water-inlet valve could mechanically stick open. When that happens, the water continues
to flow into the dishwasher, which then floods your kitchen. Turn off the water supply to the
dishwasher, and replace the valve.

Hoses
Behind the lower access panel on your dishwasher are several rubber or plastic hoses. If the
leak appears at a connection, try a new clamp. If that doesn't work, replace the hose.
