Question about Dishwashers
Worked fine yesterday. Turned it on this morning and had no power. Checked the breaker and it had tripped. Flipped it back on. Unit had power but wouldn't fill with water. Thinking something electrical must have tripped the breaker of course. Checked the float which appears fine(it's down). Haven't check voltage to the valve yet. Thought I'd see what you think before I waste more time checking things that might be unrelated. If it might be the timer, can you please tell me where it's located? Underneath or in the door? No schematic came with this unit. Just typical owner's manual.
have favorit 4220 no water, checked inlet valve works but still no water getting through, someone suggested float switch, how do i get that out? from inside or underneath?
COLINSPARK; The timer is the connected to the back of the control dial. (the door) If nothing is working, Don't forget about the door switch, If you had a short that tripped the breaker, I bet its there somewhere. The float switch is underneath. remove the front panel under the door, the float switch is activated by that little bulb inside the machine. If you lift the bulb up and down, you should be able to hear the switch clicking. If its clicking and has power going into and out of it (when its down down) its not the float switch. I bet the schematic is on the backside of the panel underneath the door.
RKIRK2K;.. This irregular problem does, unfortunately point to the timer/selector control. Before you commit to this expensive part. Check the door switch, it can make the same symptoms. Remove the panel on the door, find the little switch and by-pass the wires going to it by connecting them together. This this is a part that is usually $100 less than the timer. The resistance on the timer control can vary depending on what its set. But it is very refreshing having someone who can actually read one. If they have one I'm happy.
