Fault with water fill (only on machines with level-controlled fill)

1. Disconnect the power to the unit

2. Remove the lower access panels and check the tray under the dishwasher (you will probably find it is full of water)

3. Use a towel or a sponge to remove the water

4. There is a float that should stop the operation of the dishwasher and run the pump if water is in this tray. Check this pump to see if it is functional

5. Test the dishwasher

6. If there are no leaks from the dishwasher into the pan, check the drain hose under the sink

7. THE DRAIN HOSE MUST RUN UP TO THE TOP OF THE UNDERSIDE OF THE COUNTERTOP THEN DOWN TO THE DRAIN. (If the hose is not set up like this, water from the sink drain will flow into the dishwasher and overfill the tray

*Faults may vary by model. Use this as a general guide.

the F4 problem in the Dishwasher is common, and the solution is often to replace the Water Indicator unit. This is because the light-action microswitch attached to the unit often loses its spring.

Replacement is HERE if required.

Also, dismantle the sensor unit to get all the "gunk" out. There can be a carpet of white goo covering the rubber diaphragm, get the thing out of the machine though the front bottom inspection cover.

have only worked on them a few times but no problem to use. literally select program, close door and start. you won't break anything by trying it out.
put detergent in the dispensor and rinse aid in the rinseaidv despensor. if in a harrd water area, add dishwasher salt to the softener

yes no problem - the dishwasher has a heater. in fact, you are better off plumbing a dishwasher in to the cold water supply instead of hot
