Dishwasher starts washing before float switch shuts off

\015 Frigidaire gallery model CFDBV9G will not fill enough to prevent the wash pump from sucking air with the water. The float switch works perfectly, shutting off the water at the correct height BUT THE PUMP STARTS UP before the float switch turns off the water fill. I cleaned the screen in the shut-off. There is good flow through the fill hose. I was told at a repair shop that the cycle should not continue past the fill UNTIL THE FLOAT SWITCH SHUTS OFF. They said there must be a problem in the electronics which allows the cycle to bypass the fill switch shutoff.Any advice would be welcome.\015

Maytag Model MDB7160AWW S/N 10337613WQ Symptons: Fills with water OK, shuts off water OK, does not start any cycle, or drain. After a power off/power on reset, problem remains. Flashes CLEAN & LIGHT WASH. My understanding is this is an error condition for low motor current, which makes sense as the motor never starts. I know both door switches are good (I checked them with a DVM) and both engage when the door is closed. Tripping the water float switch opens the valve and water fills the tub

I have a Kenmore model 587.1610 dishwasher that doesn't fill all the way when starting a load. I checked the float switch and it is working fine. The fill soleniod is also working fine and is clean. It just seems to time out before it fills all the way.also to compound the problem it doesn't seem to want to start all the wash cycle even after I have re-started the machine and it has filled to capacity. please help thanks Danny

Have a Bosch shy56a05uc dishwasher that suddenly stopped working to a point. I believe it is related to the door latch switch, because I don't feel the door securely latch shut when I close it, and I also don't get any cycle lights or times registered on the LED readout. If I depress the on switch, the drain pump will start even with the door open, and, depending on how long I leave the switch on, water will start to fill in the dishwasher, open or not.

Defy dishmaid dishwasher does not start wash cycle. Several attempts to reset dishwasher has been done. Machine has been unplugged for several days and switched on again and still does not work.

When the machine is set to do washing, the water enters the machine and wash light shows green and machine remains like that with water inside the machine.

GE PDW7300 dishwasher - must slam the door shut to get a light on the panel and when the START button is pressed, it looks like the dishwasher is cycling thru a wash, but there is no water. When I press the START cycle again, it seems like it thinks its pumping the water out for a few minutes, then the light will go off. If I start it again and push really hard against the door, I can hear the water go on. But if I stop pushing the door, the water stops. The dishwasher was installed in 2001, but

Hi, ^The GE dishwasher (PDW788000SS) will not fill in either "rinse only" or "normal wash" modes. The control panel lights up with all functions. After selecting rinse only or normal wash and pressing/holding the start/reset button down for several seconds to reset the unit the drain pump comes on for approx 90 seconds as advertised. Checked the float switch and there is no continuity in any position of the little switch arm and the switch arm has no spring on it. Seems like this is a faile

Blanco dishwasher Hi. Saw your answer on the Blanco dishwasher. We have same problem. Dishwasher makes all the pump sounds it used to, but does not start to drain at cycle start, and then no water comes in. read the manual again and think we may have been washing up - ie sinks plugged. Could this have triggered something. You mentioned something about a "micro switch" could you tell me where would this be?. We have a BFDW 650 S. Thanks, Angie

Item: Whirlpool Ultra Dishwasher Age: 3 yrs Problem: Not enough water to effectively wash the dishes. State: When the dishwasher is started, the fill valve opens as normal. Only about 1/2 the amount of water is let in when the pump turns on and the washing cycle begins. Opening the door shows that the water level does not reach the bottom of the float. When I close the door, the wash cycle begins again but stops after a few seconds. This is when the water begins to fill again. This time, the wat

Asko Dishwasher starts the cycle by pumping out as it should. But does not stop pumping nor advances. If I click it forward manually it starts to fill and then before overfilling goes into pump out without washing then just repeats this. Pressure switch tubes and air trap chambers are clean and no leak to trip spill switch. I'm guessing It is either the timer or faulty pressure switch any clues ???
