Having problems with your Bosch 24 in. SHU5305UC Built-in Dishwasher ?

Why does my Kenmore dishwasher keep running water? I've replaced the overflow switch and the float with the same results?


Answers :

I'm gonna guess that you are manually turning the water on and off under the sink. if this is the case, you are taking the place of the water inlet valve which is probably bad or stuck open. since you have already gotten your feet wet with repairs on this machine, you can most likely handle this one too. good luck

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 Whirlpool which just recently started leaking from the door occasionally and it is most unpredictable. It eventually stops, but before it does it will deposit about a pint of water. I have replaced the float and the float switch, thinking those were the cheapest parts and perhaps the switch was faulty and letting too much water in. That did not work. When this happens I checked the exhaust and hot steam is coming out. Could it be the water inlet valve? If the seal was bad I am ass

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

Frigidaire Dishwasher FDB740RC. Not cleaning dishes well. Just in the past couple weeks. When the dishwasher fills with water, how full should it get. When mine fills, it definitely doesn't go up to the element, and just barely makes it to the float switch (not enough to trigger it), makes it to just below the base of it, doesn't come up the side of it at all. Is this normal, or should there be more water. The Water valve has been replaced already.

In replacing the float that senses water level on a Hobart AM 14 dishwasher, I see that the whole assembly is free to rotate after the c-clip is reinstalled. Past experience is that sometimes this plastic float will be found upside-down, on top of the probe which houses the reed switch & thermistor temperature sensor. What's to keep the float from rotating like this? Nothing appears to be broken or missing on the assembly from what I can see. THANKS!!!.......Lee

You may have installed the stainless float retainer backwards. The hook on the retainer that holds the float faces the tank wall and fits into a flat on the probe. This prevents the rotation and will better secure the float. ... Hobart 42 in. AM14C-154 Free-standing Dishwasher

My Whirlpool Gold Series 980 dishwater no longer fills up with enough water to drive the washing arms, so the dishes do not come out clean. I cleaned the filter on the water intake valve (which was really clogged) and it still did the same thing. Replaced the inlet valve and still no change. The water does not reach the level of the overfill float switch, so that’s not it. Its been working fine for 4-5 years, what else could it be? Thank you.

Kenmore dishwasher 587.15163401 won't fill. I checked the float switch with my multimeter and it's working properly. It's registering zero when I touch the terminals and 1 when I activate the switch. On this particular washer, how do I access the water inlet valve to check it for debris and also to check the solenoids? Also on this particular washer, how do I access the drain valve and solenoid. Can you tell me if this is a single direction motor or reversing motor. As I understand

I have an Ariston LS245 dishwasher, have just had the pump replaced, as it had shorted out, due to water in the bottom tray where the water detection float is, also a new drain hose fitted. Have just run a wash and after running a while, presumably to the end of the rinse, wash and dry cycle, then one of the cycle phase lights, the one for 'soak' blinks constantly. I switched the machine off and had a look to see if a wash had been done, the dishes look clean. In the book it says that if one

I've had a Miele G892 SCU PLUS dishwasher for a long time. Today a problem started that results in a flooded floor. Water keeps flowing into the dishwasher - even when the unit is turned off. It seeps in very slowly, but within15 minutes there is enough to overflow & flood the floor. My guess is that there must be some kind of sensor that isn't working, or the coresponding mechanical switch that shuts off the water is worn or slightly stuck open a bit? Anything I can do / check, short of the re
