the level switch usually a two-or three inch plastic floating device on the base of the dishwasher that looks like a rounded tube. You should be able to pull the top up and down freely otherwise it may be clogged. If you listen closely, you may be able to hear the microswitch inside click as the unit is moved up and down.

I used to work for Bauknecht years ago.
I dont remember that machine, but it could be an indication that your salt dispencer needs refilling.

I have a SHV. My sink drain backed up, and the water accumulating in the sink then migrated to the dishwasher, through the drain pipe, causing the dishwasher to fill up and, it turned out, overflow a little. When I turned on the dishwasher, the water drained, but no new, clean water came through the hot water pipe. The drain just kept running, but nothing else happened.

Here's what happened. Under the main chamber of the dishwasher, by three inches or more, is a white plastic tray. It sits almost at the floor, and it may not be obvious that it's a tray capable of holding water. The overflow water spilled into that tray, which in turn caused a float in the far left side of the tray to lift (the way a toilet float lifts when the water fills in a toilet tank) and shut off the water intake valve (like the toilet float shuts off the toilet water flow). So long as that valve is closed, your machine will not run.

STOP: disconnect power supply at this point for safety.

To see the white plastic tray and thereby fix the problem, you'll need to take off the BLACK TOE-KICK (attached on my unit by two star-head screws at its bottom) and, possibly , the OUTER PANEL OF THE DISHWASHER DOOR (in my case, a custom wood panel (attached by a few screws through the inner side of the door, two screws that are accessed by popping off little--smaller than a dime size--covers on the sides of the doors, and then the door panel lifts up and out). (I took the outer panel off, but I can't remember if I would have had to reach into the white tray without doing so.)

Once you do that, you can see the white plastic tray. It doesn't come out--at least not without removing the entire machine--so try this. You can take your fingers and feel over and into the tray. You'll probably feel the water--I did. Look at the far left of the tray with a flashlight. Back there you'll see a flat, round, 3-inch diameter piece of white plastic sitting at the bottom of the tray. To its center is a generally U-shaped lever looking device, which, at its far left end, is connected to a red stick pointing up into the machine. When water goes into the tray, the float rises, causing the U-shaped lever to rise, causing the red stick to raise, which (though I couldn't see it) causes an electrical signal to run to, and shut, the valve for your water intake.

I took paper towels, and then a narrowly cut sponge, to sop up the water in the tray. I then took my shop vac and, using it as a blower, blew what little water was left right out. You might be able to use a hair dryer, but first sop out what you can or it'll take forever. Once you've done that, put everything back together and plug your dishwasher back in. My buttons are at the top panel. To reset, hold down the two buttons marked for clear drain for three seconds and release. You should be able to start up then. It took 15 seconds before the water started to run, but it did and the machine works fine again.

Interesting note: The valve that stopped the water from flowing in automatically opened once I got the water out of the tray. You don't need to reset the valve.

Good luck.

try unblocking the inlet hose under the machine.. My machine was overflowing inlet water into the tray under the machine setting off the above mentioned aquastopper switch. I removed side pannel, then one end of the inlet hose under the machine and dragged a wire with cloth tied to end through, removing a serious amount of built up scum. no more overflowing!!

I have just reeived a Kelvinator dishwasher KD12WW. I have only a cold water outlet can I still wash with it


I found a site that is important for you to down load the site is ns323666.ip-37-187-156.eu
It is a pdf version of the instruction manual for the dishwasher
I notice that one of the instructions is quote" when using your dishwasher , you should prevent plastic items from contacting the heating element" un quote
most all dishwashers heat their own water above what human hands can stand so from that statement you can use cold water inlet only and the machine will heat it to operating temperature
I got that site by going google and typing in --kelvinator kd12ww dishwasher
then I selected site manual-kelvinator kd12ww dishwasher clicked on that and that address came up with the pdf manual
there are other sites that have parts manuals and heaps of other information
call your local kelvinator service agent and ask them about a heating element

User manual for kelvinator extreme clean KD12WW


Need to check if Rinse Aid is not exhausted in the dispenser. It could also be necessary to increase the flow rate of rinse aid. Also make sure the dishwasher is heating water as some dishwashers use steam to dry. If heater is faulty the steam will not be there.

I've got a Kelvinator dishwasher KD12MM bought second hand, the machine goes on but does not pump water. Please help


Possible that the pump has clogged or is jammed with dirt. you will need to remove the pump and clean the pump assembly for a good spray pressure. If this wont work then the pump is faulty and needs to be replaced.Check this link for tips:

Kelvinator kd12mm, does not drain water after washing, looking for a manual as well,


There is a float switch inside your dishwasher that is usually to the left and is covered by a plastic piece that you can unscrew. Then take the float switch out and make sure it is clean and clear of all debris, and that it is working smoothly in its place. If its not that, then there is a switch underneath the float that you can only get to by accessing the underneath. To check that switch, you can take a multi-meter with ohm checking on it and see if the switch is operational by applying the leads from your multi-meter to each of the terminals. You should get nothing while depressed and it should ohm out if pressed. It could possibly be reversed, but aslong as you dont have a constant ohm or visa-versa, your okay. There is also a solenoid on the motor itself that you can do this same check on. It opens the flaps to let the water out when the timer calls for it. Last but should be first, make sure your hose that runs from the dishwasher isnt kinked or clogged in anyway. Always disconnect the power supply before doing any electrical. Hope this helps.

It seems to turn on but no water flows in I can here the motor running but no water flows the water has not been shut off


There are two possible reasons for the situation as you describe it: 1. 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.
2. 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.

If you are mechanically inclined you can repair either of these but if you are not you will have to hire it done. Now that you know it is one of two problems you can tell the repairman ahead of time and get a price on the repair. Then shop around for the best price.

KELVINATOR DISHWASHER


It's look like a water level switch issue. The switch level is usually a diaphragm device with a small clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. I am not familiar with this specific machine, but if you will open the rear panel you should find it easily. You can either clear any obstruction in the tube or to replace the switch. Good luck !
