Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. To start with check the water inlet valve which is located behind the lower access panel on the left or right side of the Dishwasher. If the water inlet valve is bad you have to replace it, also check the main water line for clogs/obstructions. If still the issue is not resolved then it’s a bad float switch and needs to be replaced. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

    Hi Thank you for that i dont think it is the valve as i am not getting any power to it,i also think it could be the float switch but i cant find it.

    Do you know where it is located also have you got a service manual for this machine.

    Thanks in advance.

    You are right, in some dishwashers its pressure switch (float switch can be referred as pressure switch). Please click on this link for its repair manual. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

    Hi

    Yes everything works fine the but there is still a little problem at the end of the eveningwe drain the machine and when we do re-fill i get various different problems-whats happening is that i get airlock in the pipes that go to pressure switches-so i have to bleed them then every thing is ok,do you know what causes this.

    ps all the info you gave was very helpful.

    Thanks

    If you have already replaced the pressure switch and water inlet valve then try to completely disassemble the pipes and clean them to resolve this also you can check the contacts of pressure switch.

How do i fix "OE"code.


if it is like my dishwasher the oe code means the unit is over filled with water. My dishwasher had a major fault that blew up a circuit board and had a faulty front assembly. Still in repair shop waiting for parts.. I would deduct that the washing machine is not emptying water so I think a water pump could be failing. My dishwasher was not activating the washer motor and came up with the same code but..

Washer does not fill with water washer was under water recently due to flood change the motor control assembly that was not the promblem am think it may be pressure switch thanks leo


There should be no water in the pressure switch or in the hose. You could be right, if the washer thinks its already filled it wouldnt add more water.Rob

I have a top loading Kenmore Washing Machine. I don´t have the excat model but looks like a KENMORE HEAVY DUTY SERIES 70 AUTOMATIC WASHER, MODEL # 110.92273100. The problem presents after finishing...


You may have 2 defective parts.
First,make sure the hot and cold water hoses are connected correctly and both turned on.
If the water fill problem is the same,the water temp switch is bad.
The not filling after the wash cycle could be a bad lid switch.
Set the machine for SPIN and turn it on.
If it does not spin,replace the lid switch.

Kenmore heavy duty 70 series model 82763110


set the load size to small, fill with water.

now after it fills with water do you hear anything? motor noise?

If you hear motor noise, it probably has a broken motor coupler.

if it doesnt do anything I would look at the lid switch and activator, the lid has to close and the switch has to know it closed. did the tab on the lid break off?

Kenmore 70 series


Mrquest
If it is draining the water then the motor is running. ou most likely have a broken motor coupler between the motor and gearcase.

Remove the two screws that hold the console to the cabinet and flip the console back.
Remove the two clips that hold the cabinet to the rear panel of the washer and unplug the lid switch harness. The cabinet will tilt forward and slide off.
Remove the clips holding the water pump and move it to the side.
Unplug the wires from the motor and remove the clips holding it.
You will see the motor coupler.
Make sure you can turn the gearcase shaft with a pair of pliers so it is not locked up.
Post back with the complete model number from the washer if you need further help.
Thanks, Mike
