Every time we put the dishwater on we have to vacuum the water from the pan so that it begins the cycle. At the rinsing cycle, we repeat the same procedure until it ends the complete cycle. We have already changed the water inlet valve a few times and the floating switch as well. The control pcb panel smells burnt at times. We have the new board and would like some guidance as to how to replace it. If you have other suggestions please fell free to inform us.

Hello Vicki. If the drain pump sounds like it is running and will not shut off, you are on "flood mode" There is standing water in the bas pan of the dishwasher. sometimes water can get down there due to an overfill, or not draining completely between cycles. You can either wait for 2 or 3 days and the water will evaporate and should run normally. You can remove the bottom access panels and either vacuum out of dry the water (REMOVE POWER FIRST !) . If it does not clear on its own or if removing the water manually does not work, then the float switch will need to be replaced that activates the flood mode. There is a small possibility you have a bad control .
No fill..no water..
Check the problem on the filling section...
The machine should fill first of all and after this to run in any of the cycles.
Can be..solenoid for fill.
the water line is close :)
the drain solenoid is broken and all the water is draining
I have no real experience with float switches on dishwashers, but have with some in humidifiers. It's a piece of styrofoam on a narrow metal stick that lifts when the appliance fills with water & lowers when the water empties. If this gets stuck on something, like a dishwasher rack, the unit won't fill or empty the water & the cycles won't work properly. Take a look & see if there is such a thing hung up somewhere in the dishwasher. If you can loosen it, your dishwasher should work again.
water tempt too low . use longer cycles like pot & pans . if d/w has a heater turn it on . always run tap at sink till water is hot then start dw . this is a common problem it's probably not the dishwasher . but how ou are setting the cycles .. mm hope this helps . feed back pls ..
It could be that the machine isn't filling properly with water- which could be a faulty or clogged water inlet valve. I'm not quite familiar with Inglis, but if you still have the manual, check and see if there is a way to adjust the amount of time the water valve stays open at the beginning of the cycle.
Or just add a liter or so of water at the beginning of a cycle and see if that helps- but make sure you add it after you hear the soap dispenser open- the beginning of most wash cycles is a quick rinse cycle, so any water you add will only be in there for a couple minutes before the machine drains and attempts to refill.
Lots of ideas,,, Try cycling the dishwasher without dishes on the hottest setting and about 10 miutes into that cycle..stop it and add 2 ups of white vinegar to the water.. let it complete the cycle..
The problem is that standing water with food byproducts will begin to smell as they break down. Like all dishwahers, there is always a small amount of water that remains in the drain system at all times so it is important to clean the filter trap and to periodically air it out or use the white vinegar method..
Hope this helps you...
Mderford, on a normal fill, the water should be just above the filter screen. 1.8 gallons first fill, 1.7 on all other fills. Don't think it would be a siphoning problem as you are not having this on the pots/pans. Check the float, make sure it is not sticking. You can check the inlet valve filter screen to see if it is not plugged. Run it through the diagnostics cycle by pushing high temp-air dry-high temp-air dry. Some models it's heated dry-normal-heated dry-normal. It will run through a self test for about 20 minutes. See if any error codes come up. Fill time should be approx. 1:30 to 1:40 seconds. If any of the aformentioned doesn't turn up any results, then it's possibly a faulty fill valve drive circuit on the control itself...Catriver..post back.
