My dishwasher displays a note h 03 what does that mean


I think that means it's not draining water correctly. My older portable dishwasher wasn't draining right and I found a small piece of white plastic had lodged under the float at the bottom which caused the dishwasher to think it wasn't draining. Look at the bottom of the dishwasher to find the float, usually round in shape and moves a little up and down when you gently pull on it, look for anything obstructing it's movement.

Check float valve


pull out your bottom rack, in one of the bottom corners of your dishwasher there will be a circular plastic piece. it is probably stuck in the up position . Wiggle it around, it should sit loosely in place. It's a float, so when water fills in your washer, the float should raise up, when the water is draining, the float should lower with the water. That's why the float should be sitting loose in position.

Tablet not dissolving, dishes not clean


Hi Trina. I wish I was nearby as I would come over and take care of this problem for you.

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.

Water keeps running into dishwasher causing overflow


I had a diswasher with thils problem several years ago. The problem was wiith the plastic float at the bottom. It had hardend greese buildup that kept the float from moving freely. Removing the float and cleanning fixed the problem.

No water enters, the dishwasher runs but just sounds like a buzz the entire cycle. It's a Bosch, about 3 years old


check and see if there is water in the base by removing the toe kick. if so then it activated your float micro switch. clear the water from the base. i use a wet vac, but if you don't have one just soak it up with towels. once that styrofoam piece on the left side of the base isnt submerged in water anymore then it should start. it could be a broken hose or bad part. check hoses if you have a rat or mouse lingering. otherwise i have also seen flexable cutting boards blocking the condensation hole on the inside of the tank on the right wall. if you think it was that then just keep those flexy cutting boards on the left side or top rack.

if no water is down there.. then where that styrofoam piece sets on the left side. find that red plastic rod and flip it upward a few times to un-stick the float switch with the dishwasher unplugged first of course.

Kenmore Elite ultra wash dishwasher


When it is off, reach down around the base of the spray assy and run your fingers around the entire circular base where junk can get caught. I've found broken glass and plastic utensils. Why do some of us wash disposable utensils? Huh? You may find something like a piece of plastic, glass, or the like that is making the noise. Be careful not to cut yourself.

If this buzzying sound is not coming from the tub, and is actually below the tub and in front right side, it is most likely the electrical relay switch ( which can make that sound when it is straining or failing).

Miele Model G 692 SCI PLUS does not start up. It drains water if you put water in the bottom. The Inlet/Drain light flashes. I have checked all the water filters and cleaned any very small particles...


The inlet/drain light also comes on when there is water in the base pan. There is a float switch that triggers this and over time if water has collected in the base pan the float switch can stick. Pull out the dishwasher and tilt it towards to back. If there is any water in the base pan it will come out. To be thorough, put the machine on it's back and remove the base pan (4 screws by the feet), the float switch is a circular plastic casing with a polystyrene float in it. It comes apart for servicing, the float can jam if there is any rubbish in the water.

Broken switch


That is correct, the flat plastic rod that pulls when you depress the on/off button is attached to a switch lever under the bottom of the handle. The rod in mine broke off right where it connects to that switch lever. You can either try and find the new or used part, Braun may have new, I have not tried their 800 number, can't hurt? I fix everything from scratch though and rebuild when I can especially if parts are scarce or obsolete. So I used some marine putty to affix the rod end back to the lever. Marine putty is a stick with two putties you roll together for a rock hard compound, awesome stuff. You can get at Wally World or hardware, auto parts, boat supply stores. I also drilled very small holes in the broken rod on each side and the lever on each side and threaded some thin stainless steel wire through, just looped it around without twisting it togethor before putting the putty over it for a permanent, wire reinforced, fix.The handle is not screwed on exception of one little torx screw at very bottom of handle on base. The handle just snaps together. The base or bottom and 3 screws do not need to be removed either for this rod and lever fix. Remove the top 'cover' piece of the handle first, then remove the two brass pins under it at top next to the on/off button second. So, the handle 'snaps' off with a lock blade knife or equivalent, get under the handle pieces with knife edge and twist the blade, it will pop off as you go, be prepared to break a few little hook pieces off underneath, they break but it seems to snap back on ok anyway. Crazy glue alone won't hold these plastic pieces together btw, try another way, wire and putty, maybe a plastic welding kit etc.. Mine works great again, once I got the lever reattached to the rod.
