Water Leak My dishwasher is an Ariston Advantage AF250: I have been told that internally its the same as a Hotpoint DF55. It intermittently leaks water onto the floor from the front at its base during use. At one time it ruined the motor which I had rewound and at the same time I made a new polystyrene float for the base pan overflow switch. All was well for months, but now its leaking again. I have blown through the tubes from the drain filter well to the pressure sensitive switch, but all

I have a JennAire jdb1090aws dishwasher. It's about 4 years old. The symptom is no water flowing through dishwasher. Approx 3 months after installation, the same symptom occurred. Tech resolved with float switch adjustment (no charge). Has run fine every since. I have not checked water supply, but doubt this is the problem (new water heater 3 months ago, sediment gone).

I have a DU8000XX6 series Kenmore dishwasher that won't drain the water properly. There is about a half inch of water in the tub and the float is raised (not sitting on tub bottom). When I lift up the float a little more I can hear the float switch make. I would assume that when the water is high enough the float switch makes and energizes a solenoid valve in the drain to drain the water, but shouldn't it stay open until all the water drains? Lifting the float while the dishwasher is off wo

I have a very old domestic Hobart dishwasher. The micro switch that is controlled by the float on the inside left of the machine has malfunctioned . I believe that this micro switch controls the "water in" valve/solenoid. It's ID = UNIMAX 2TMT2002 4 Y , 10 amp-1/4hp 125-250VAC. It's an odd switch as it's lever is about 25mm long and has a paddle on the end to line up with the plunger comming through from the float inside the machine. It also only has 2 prongs for connection and 2 holes fo

We've got Beko DE 2542 FW Slimline dishwasher. Everything switches on as it is supposed to but nothing happens. Rinse aid and Salt indicator red light is not on, because we've filled them up. Switched on dishwasher, green light for "On" comes on. Selected programme level, pressed start. Green light comes on for "Wash" Nothing happens - we've left it overnight but nothing happens. What seems to be the problem? Look forward to hearing the solution.

Dear Sir/Madam,I have owned a Beko DW450 slimline dishwasher for 13 months and used it only twice, i wanted to use it last night but when i switched it on the drain pump activated and would not switch off. I powered down the dishwasher to see if that would reset it but unfortunately when i started it again it did the same thing - drain pump activated but would not stop running, it is impossible at the moment to carry out a wash programme. Does anyone have any idea on this problem. Thanks, Patric

I have a Bosch Exxcel dishwasher which runs the drain pump constantly even with the door open and despite there being now water in the machine at the cycle wont start. I have checked the warer amtrix and the ffed hose to the sump for blockages.

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
