If there's no water entering your dishwasher, check these:

Water-inlet valve
Float switch
Water-inlet valve The water-inlet valve lets water enter the machine. If this valve is defective, you need to completely replace it. It's usually located behind the lower access panel on the left or right side. It's the device with the main water line (usually copper) from the house, a rubber tube to the dishwasher, and two wires attached to it.

Float switch The float switch is a small electrical switch that's located right below the dishwasher "floor." Above the switch, on the inside of the dishwasher, is a plastic cylinder that floats up as water fills the dishwasher. If this switch is defective, or if the plastic float gets caught or trapped in the raised position, the water can't enter the dishwasher. If the float switch is defective, you need to replace it.

How to clean sunbeam window air conditioner 5000 BTU


To ensure you are achieving absolute BEST energy efficiency, I would strongly encourage you to take the following steps:
1. Unplug your unit, disconnecting the electrical service from the unit.
2. Remove the filters from the front of the unit.
3. In a typical quart spray bottle, add 4 packets of UNSWEETENED Lemon KOOL-AID, fill 1/2 full with water, screw top onto bottle, shake well for 30 seconds, remove top and add water to near the top, screw top onto bottle and shake again to mix it very well.
4. Spray the INDOOR COILS with the above KOOL-AID solution until all of the solution has been used. The CITRUS Acid in the KOOL-AID will penetrate the coils and not only remove unwanted dirt, dust and debris; but it will also clean the bi-metal portions of that coil, making it SHINE.
5. Let the KOOL-AID set on those coils for a MINIMUM of 30 minutes.
6. While the KOOL-AID is doing its job, take the filters that were removed and rinse them under a faucet, ensuring the water is flowing from the back to the front of the filters in order to dislodge and remove as much debris as possible. It is acceptable to now spray the filters with either a solution of 50% water and 50% hydrogen peroxide OR simply spray with any household disinfectant/cleaner such as Lysol or Mr. Clean or similar product. Bump the filters against your hand to remove any additional water or household spray.
7. After at least 30 minutes, take that same spray bottle and fill it with clear water. Spray those coils once more with clear water to flush what ever may have been left within those tiny coils.
8. Add 1 drop of light weight oil to the fan motor and bearing.
9. Re-install the front cover of the unit; and then reinstall the filters.
10. Plug into an electrical outlet.
11. Turn the unit to the COOLING Mode and HI Speed Fan Mode.
Enjoy continued usage of your A/C unit.
This should be performed at least once each year in order achieve the highest EFFICIENCY of your system.

Hi
Either your grind is very coarse or your injector seal is bad. The injector is behind the brew unit and has 2 orange O-rings on it. See if you can wiggle the injector?

I dont know why your humidifier is spitting water out.

But it sounds like you need to clean the unit and install a new filter. Once the filter becomes used, the humidifier won't work as well. Less water will be used because the clogged filter can't hold as much. Once you replace the filter, your water consumption should go back up and you should feel a difference in your home again.

Good Luck.
