Question about Dishwashers
My dishwassher is overfilling during the fill cycle, so that water pours from the overflows in the front door. I have checked the pressure valve and it is OK electrically. When it switches out (ie at correct fill level ) the machine just keeps filling. Can someone help ??
I have been told that some machines work on a timer fill not pressure....is the DG 6145 model one of these ?
There are two ways that dishwashers generally fill. One is a float inside the tub, the second is a tube which fills with water, loops and goes to a pressure switch below the machine. That switch is usually about 1.5 inches in diameter, two wires and a small hose going to it. The float witch is found below the float in the motor area. With the float, sometimes they jam with too much old detergent or food goo. Clean out. Both can have the switch weld closed. Change the switch in either case. Since the unit is not filling with the power off, I'm going to guess the water solenoid is okay.
