Your water level switch has a small hose going to it. The hose may be pinced ,have a hole in it, or simply vibrated off the water level control.

Wont stop filling up with water


1. if the water is not flooding the floor, then you have a drain hose siphoning problem. raise or loop the drain hose up in the back of the machine higher than the highest water level of the machine.

2. if water is flooding the floor and the only way to stop it is to shut it off at the fawcet then the water valve is bad and needs replacing

Kenmore Ultrawash III will not fill with water, in any cycle setting. Is this the overflow protector sticking or other?


Check the float(flood) switch inside the dishwasher on the floor of the tub, it floats with the water level shutting off the water inlet valve when water is at the right level to start the cycles.Also check the water inlet valve for good water supply/pressure and clear of any resrictions. Good luck !

Floods floor on startup. Pump not leaking. What


The tub was off center and the fill water was splashing over the rim. This happened because I had removed the pump to oil the seal. The washer sets all summer in 110 degree weather and very callcifeid water. Last fall on start up the seal was siezed to the shaft because of calcium build up. I was able to recenter the tub by pulling it the opposite way. Hopes this helps someone along the way.

Water fills up in tub but wont shut off flooded


Sounds like a problem with either the inlet valve or the pressure switch, the way to determine which is bad... while the machine is filling pull the power plug..if the water keeps filling it's the inlet valve that is going to be bad..if it stops filling it's going to be the pressure switch. The pressure switch is located in the control panel and has a small rubber pipe attached.once you have figured which it is replace it good luck.
If you have any other questions or concerns please feel free to comment again..Mike

Check water valve may not be shutting off .
Check water level switch , or hose going to it from tub must be air tight may have pin hole in it.
Water level switch is the one that says small , medium or large on some washers.

Water sometimes does not shut off. flooded twice. happens intermittently.


If when the machine is flooding if you turn off power to the machine and it continues to fill: replace water inlet valve. If flooding water stops filling when power is interupted: clean out the end of the water level switch tube where it connects to the outer wash tub.

Another flood. GE washer


The water sound is normal. There is a solution in the top of inner tub for balance. Is it overflowing...as in not stopping the fill cycle? If so check to make sure small hose is still attached to outer tu at bottom left front. This dome that it connects to can become filled with scum and causes the unit to not know that it's full. This causes flooding. You can try removing hose and cleaning out with thin wire. Sometime only fix is to replace outer tub. Again, this is only if overflowing!!
Another possibility is a bad break allowing outer tub to spin in agitation. This throws water up over sides of tub. Monitor unit when agitating to see if outer tub picks up speed and starts to spin. It is normal for it to index.
