Question about Whirlpool Dishwashers
Hi, I have a Whirlpool ADP 262 Dishwasher that all works fine but after a cycle it will slowly fill with water from the bottom over the next few days. It's was fitted before i moved in 18 mths ago with no problems and nothing has changed in the install so something must of failed? I have checked the drain pipe is still fixed high and OK giving the loop above the sink level, again nothing has changed here. Is there a drain valve that fails i can replace? Maybe the inlet can leak and fill from the bottom? Thanks in advance Dan
If water slowly fills in the tub when not in use.
a) Most likely your machine inlet water valve not seating properly and closing. Change the machine water valve.
b) May be sink drain water back flowing to the tub. But you have checked that.
So it has to be the machine inlet water valve.

When the water stops too soon, it could be the "over flow" is stuck in the downward position, therefore the dishwasher thinks it's going to over flow. Check that out. Otherwise I'm afraid this sounds like the circuit board is shot.

There are only 2 places the DW can get water from. One is the drain line and the other is the supply line. We need to eliminate one to diagnose the problem, OK?
The first picture is a drain hose gone wrong...
Inspect your drain hose. If it looks like the pic above, you gotta fix that. Even IF that's not the problem right now... it will be in the future (and MAY be contributing to the problem now). You'll need to loosen the clamp, remove the drain hose from its' fitting, pull as much slack as you can get from the DW and then make a "loop" in it before reconnecting it. Like this...
The DW drain loop should be as high as the highest part of the sink...
I know that you have done a lot of experimenting in an attempt to figure this out. Just make sure that the drain hose is installed properly to eliminate it as the cause of the flood issue.
After you've made sure about the drain hose, leave the DW alone overnight. If you see water in the tub the next morning, you definitely have a failed valve on your DW. Since it's new (less than a year?) the valve is under warranty and will be replaced at no charge.
Hope this helps. If it's out of warranty let me know and I'll do the part look up for you and provide detailed replacement instructions, OK?

Hi. The above machine stops mid cycle and drain/fill light is on, also
error code F3E, have cleaned both hot and cold water inlet filters, also
checked drain pump and drain line, all ok. Machine drains with no
issues and fills with hot water, runs for a while then shuts down.
