Re: water level

Some water in the tub after the cycle is complete is normal. most dishwashers are time filled with a float switch as a safety device. the actual level depends on the fill time and the water pressure. what exactly is the d/w doing (or not doing) to make you think there is a problem?

Dishwasher stops working a few minutes after being started

Make sure the water is turned on to the unit first--next, is there water entering the tub? Check the float switch--the round, plastic, "flying saucer" shaped object at the bottom of the tub. Gently lift up on it and carefully listen for a very soft "click" sound. That is the tiny switch underneath working. If something gets trapped under the float switch, the washer won't fill with water. Next, if water is indeed in the tub, did you hear the motor pump running? If it runs and then stops, there might be a problem with the control board--check to see if the drain pump works properly--cancel the cycle and listen for the drain pump turning on and draining out all the water. On almost all dishwashers, at the start of a cycle, the drain pump will turn on briefly to pump out any standing water left in the motor base(you can't see the water but it's there) so it doesn't get sprayed onto your dishes. Then, fresh, hot water enters the tub, when the water level reaches the proper level, the float switch rises, tells the computer enough water is present, then starts the main pump. If the water is not being drained out, try to listen for the drain motor humming. If it is running but not draining, it is probably jammed with food or other debris and must be cleared. If the water is turned on but no water is entering the tub, check the inlet water valve underneath the washer--the water line is connected directly to it. It is electrical and operates on 120v. You will need to carefully disconnect the connector from the valve, activate a cycle, and using a voltage meter, check to see if 120 volts is present. If it is there and no water is entering, most likely the valve is bad. If there is no voltage at the valve, either a wire is broken or the main board is defective.

Blanco dishwasher overflows at end of cycle

There is a float connected to a switch that controls water level. It is usually round and will move freely up and down by hand. But your problem might be a levelling related one. The dishwasher must be level to operate correctly. Use a torpedo level in the tank base to check front to back level and side to side level. Adjust the front legs to level the unit.

Kenmore dishwasher is not washing properly and leaving dirty water in the bottom when it is finished, Can i fix it?

If your washer is overfilling, check these:

Water-inlet valve
Water-level switch
Water-inlet valve A defect in the water-inlet valve may mean that it's no longer able to shut off completely when the electricity has been turned off to it. If this occurs, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub. In time, the water may accumulate substantially. If this happens, you need to replace the valve.

Water-level switch A defect--or an obstruction--in the water-level switch may mean that it can't tell the water to shut off. So the machine overflows. This switch senses the water level in the clothes tub. It's usually a diaphragm device with a small, clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level in the tub increases, the pressure on the air in the tube increases. When the pressure reaches a certain level, it activates the switch, shuts off the water, and signals the timer to begin the agitate cycle. You can either clear any obstruction in the tube or replace the water-level switch.

Water level too high in tub causing water to leak out front

Sounds like the drain hose is disconnected. Check to make sure that the tube is not blocked and is connected properly. If the checks out then you should check your water sensor meter and make sure tht it is stoppingthe system at the correct points.

I'm just wondering how much water should be in the dishwasher for proper cleaning? Should it cover the heating element?

Water level can depend on the model and manufacturer. The water will fill to the level of the float switch. This is a plastic looking thing near the front of the dishwasher along the tub bottom that looks like and upside down cup. The water level reaches a point to where the float lifts and activates a cut-off switch which will stop the water from filling, followed by the wash cycle beginning. Now, depending on where the heating element is located, the water level is usually just touching the element and not necessarilty covering it. Does this help you? If you still have questions, let me know.

Dishwasher leaves residue in top rack only

Most cleaning problems are caused by the dishwasher not getting enough water. It could be cause of the switch level, which control water level in the tub. The switch level is usually a diaphragm device with a small clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. I am not familiar with your machine, but if you will open the rear panel you will find it easily. Be aware you should discoonect the power cable !!! Clear the tube (attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub) from any obstruction.In case it will not solve the problem, you should replace the switch. Good luck !

Water level

I'm not sure I understand your question. There isn't supposed to be any water left in the tub after operation. If there's any water left it might indicate that the dishwasher does not drain properly. If that's the case - - If the unit is hooked up to a food waste disposer, make sure the disposer is empty. - Check to see if the knockout plug has been removed from inside the food waste disposer inlet. - Check to see if drain hose is kinked. - Make sure cycle is complete, not in a pause.
