Kemore Elite Dishwasher Spews Water When Wash Cycle Begins
The machine fills just fine, but after filling and starting to wash, water spews out of the front of the machine. I know exactly where it is coming from but I cannot figure out why. We have had the machine for over 8 years and I am obsessive about how it gets loaded, so that has not changed. What could possibly change the way that the water is routed inside the machine? There are vents in the bottom of the plastic door liner, that is where the water is exiting the machine, into my wire harness and then down the face of the bottom panel.
Re: Kemore Elite Dishwasher Spews Water When Wash Cycle...
After further inspection of my dishwasher I found a bad gasket under the lower wash arm. Over the years it finally gave up and was shooting a torrent of water through the water in the bottom of the wash tub. When all that water hit the door liner it went up into the lower door vents, into to wire harness, and onto the floor.

The normal cause of leaking while it is filling is a leaking Inlet hose. Try pulling the washing machine away from the wall and watch the hoses as the machine fills. If it is leaking you can see which hose is leaking.
You may either need new tighner clips or to replace the hoses depending on how bad they are leaking.
Another possibility is the water pump inside the washing machine could be broken and spewing out water.
Larry, The float is generally for overflow conditions and will interrupt power to the fill valve solenoid. If you are not filling completely in the time allowed by the timer, it is most likely a flow restriction in the water supply. Barring other obvious restrictions, the fill valve has filter screens on the inlet side of the fill valve, which is generally the cause of your symptoms. Be careful if you attempt to clean the screens, as the fill valves are very sensitive to debris, and can become stuck open if sediment gets past the screen. I usually replace the fill valve to avoid future problems. Hope this helps.
If the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:
It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.
It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.

most new washers have cold water only rinse and spray rinse ck cold water coming into machine during wash if no cold comes in suspect cold side of fill vale not opening ..could be wiring issue or a bad valve
