My sump pump wont kick off. There is no water in the sump and the float is fine, but the motor won't shut off. I unplugged the pump as to not burn up the motor, and thinking it may reset itself, but when...


Hello, the pump motor is controlled by the float switch. If your motor is running constantly even when you move the float switch around, then I would say that either the switch is shorted internally, or the wires going to the switch are shorted, thusly causing the motor to run. Is the float on a separate adapter to the pump, or is it wired into the pump?

The pump makes a noise but no water


First, the obviouis, make sure the water is turned on under the sink. Check for kinks in the fill hose. It may be the float assembly or float switch.

Check the float to make sure it moves freely up and down, and it should click when it moves. Remove float and clean around the float tube-you may need to do this from below, through the access panel. Use white vinegar to scrub the float and shaft assembly. Turn on the dishwasher to see if this fixed the problem.

If not, it may be the float switch. If you are handy with electrical repairs, turn off the power to the dishwasher, pull the dishwasher from the wall and remove the back. Remove the wires from the terminals on the float switch-use masking tape to identify to identify terminals,noteing which belongs where.Remove old switch and replace with the new float switch. You will need the serial number, model number and make of your dishwasher to order the new float.

Km-630mae/where does the L-shaped metal bracket fit inside the float switch. It fell out


small bracket does not go inside, but outside the float switch. It goes behind where the float switch mounts. A screw goes thru the float, the bracket, and then into the machine. It holds the float level to it's adjustment.

My dishwasher keeps adding water and overflows


If the water lifts the float all the way up or the float is submerged, the water level is too high. Overfilling is likely a problem with the float or float switch. The float is located inside the dishwasher in the tub area. As water enters the tub, the float device will rise. When the float rises to a certain level it triggers the float switch, which in turn, turns off the water flow. In some dishwashers, the float switch is only used to prevent overfilling and the amount of water is regulated by the timer.

Before testing the float assembly, unplug the dishwasher or shut off the power at the fuse box or breaker panel to avoid an electrical shock hazard.



To inspect the float assembly, open the dishwasher and remove the bottom rack. Remove the float cover (if any; it can be identified by the fact that the cover does not move up and down). The cover may snap in place or it may be fastened in place with a screw.

Lift and drop the float several times. It should move freely. If the float sticks, it may prevent the dishwasher from filling or draining properly. Remove the float and look for obstructions that may interfere with its free movement. The float usually snaps in place. If it does not come off with a small force, it may have to be disconnected from the float switch first.

You will need to Replace the float and float cover, If you found no obstructions and the problem persists, test the float switch.

TESTING PROCEDURE




To access the float switch remove the lower panel located beneath the door. The panel is usually held in place with two screws either above or below the panel. It may be necessary to first open the door to the dishwasher to reach the screws over the panel, then close the door to remove the panel.

Note the location of the float in the dishwasher's tub and you will find the float switch beneath it in the access area. The switch has two wires connected to it. Label the wires and connections so that you can properly reconnect them later. The wires are connected with slip on connectors. Firmly pull the connectors off of the terminals. You may need to use a pair of needle-nose pliers to remove the connectors. Inspect the connectors and the terminals for corrosion. If either is corroded they should be cleaned or replaced.

Use a multimeter to test for continuity. Set the multimeter to the ohms setting X1. Touch one probe to each terminal. You should get a reading of either zero or infinity. With the probes still in place, depress the button or lever on the switch and the reading should change to the opposite extreme.

If the switch fails either test, it should be replaced.


NOTE_ If the float, and float switch check out ok, and there are no issues here, the culprit will be a faulty water inlet valve. replace the valve in this case.

Flotec Sump Pump Tethered Float - Float seems faulty. Easy fix?


it sounds like it could be a bad float switch but most of the time the water isn't high enough for the pump to turn on. it takes alot of water to turn on a tethered float. the other pumps they sell at lowes with a real float (like the one in the toilet) are adjustable and also replicable. .

Hotpoint fdw60 , were is the float switch?


The float switch is screwed to the bottom panel.  If you tip the machine onto its side, you will see a metal panel held on with six screws - 3 at the front - three at the back.  Remove these screws and remove the panel.  The float switch is secured to the back of this panel. It is a white polystyrene block suspended below an electrical switch.

No water is entering the Exxcel auto option dishwasher


hello there,
If there's no water entering your dishwasher, check these:
1. Water-inlet valve
2. Float switch

Water-inlet valve
The water-inlet valve lets water enter the machine. If this valve is defective, you need to completely replace it. It's usually located behind the lower access panel on the left or right side. It's the device with the main water line (usually copper) from the house, a rubber tube to the dishwasher, and two wires attached to it.


Float switch
The float switch is a small electrical switch that's located right below the dishwasher "floor." Above the switch, on the inside of the dishwasher, is a plastic cylinder that floats up as water fills the dishwasher. If this switch is defective, or if the plastic float gets caught or trapped in the raised position, the water can't enter the dishwasher. If the float switch is defective, you need to replace it.

thanks for using FixYa

Dishwasher Fails to drain and cuts out via float switch?


hi Dishwashers are usually protected from overfilling by a float switch. This switch is located in the bottom of the unit. Here's how to check and replace it:

Step 1: Open the door and remove the bottom dish rack. Check to see if the float valve is stuck. If it is, clean away food debris around the float. With a screwdriver handle, lightly tap the top of the float to free it.

Step 2: If tapping doesn't work, remove the lower access panel and locate the bottom portion of the float and float switch. Test the float switch with a VOM set to the RX1 scale. Unscrew one electrical lead wire to the switch terminal, and clip one probe of the VOM to each terminal. If the meter reads zero, the switch is not faulty. The trouble is probably in the timer. If the meter reads higher than zero, the switch is faulty.

Step 3: Replace the switch with a new one made to fit the dishwasher. The switch is held to a mounting bracket with screws; remove the screws to get the old switch out.

Step 4: Connect the new switch the same way the old one was connected.
