Question about Fagor Dishwashers
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.

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.

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
