Question about Dishwashers
I have an Equator dishwasher (Model SB72) that will not fill
with water. I first noticed something was wrong when water started leaking out
the bottom of the unit. I removed the right side cover panel and found
that soon after a cycle began the water entered the air break unit, and then
the levelling unit. I am not dishwasher savy; I only know these terms
because I was able to locate the Service Parts catalog. Once the water
enters the leveling unit it begins to spill out from the top of the unit and
into the basin below, and eventually onto the floor. Any advice on what
might be the problem? The only thing I see that could be causing a
problem is a lot of deposit-like material in the clear plastic air break unit.
I think some part of yours dishhwasher has problem .i think water container has problem so if possible call to ur customer care of urs company.

Try checking for anything that might be obstructing the filters and try to check on kinked or wring tubings. Look for a switch or say knob on the leveling unit as well. keep me posted

If there's no water entering your dishwasher, check these:
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.

You'll need to check for the water inlet hose, the water inlet valve and the float switch assembly. When the water fills your dishwasher, a float rises along with it. As the float reaches a certain threshold level, it shuts off the flow of water, thereby preventing a leak. Sometimes the float can get stuck in the wrong position in your dishwasher, and it can prevent your dishwasher from filling. Sometimes it can happen due to float valve and on other occasions due to float switch. Inspect the water hose coming to the dishwasher for any blockages. If the hose is not clogged then check the water inlet valve for any clogs, if the water will not even fill for few seconds then certainly the water inlet valve is bad and should be replaced. You can also use a multimeter to check continuity on inlet valve. If you don't get any value on the multimeter then you'll need to replace the water inlet valve assembly. However, if the valve is fine then the float switch assembly should be replaced. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

are noticing that the dishes are not clean, then there are a few things to
check for. Check the soap powder if it's kept in a dry environment. Also try
replacing the powder with something like a gel or liquid. Next thing to check
for is the water pressure and fill valve. Check if the water is filling in and
the spray arms are throwing the water with enough pressure. Try and listen to
the sound if you hear a proper spraying action sound.
seems as a low water pressure then check the fill valve. Now, check if
dishwasher is draining the water or not. While the dishwasher is working check
whether the dishwasher is draining and there is not much left out water after
the cycle is complete. Try cleaning the spray arm with a soft brush. The water
temperature plays a major role in cleaning of dishes. The temp should be
between 125 and 150 F for dishwasher to clean the dishes. Hope this helps...

Make sure the dishwasher is level. If the water is leaking from the door, you should replace the door gasket.
