Erestanding Equator PLS600 Overflows

\015 What can cause these dishwashers to overflow? I know of two reasons. Are there more?This dishwasher certainly could never be called a pot scrubber, but it ran satisfactorily for two years. Then it began over flowing. The cause the first time was the filler shut off. The filler shut off mechanism is a pressure switch at the end of a long tube. When the water rises to a sufficient level it is driven into the tube raising the pressure and closing a switch and causing a relay to shut the fill valve. the tube had been clogged with built up debris and cleaning out the tube caused it to resume working.The second time the clean out fix did not work. The problem this time seemed to be the door. There is no door seal at all on the dishwasher. Instead, flanges on the sides of the door opening fit loosely into deep recesses on the door sides and a flange on the door bottom fits in a recess at the bottom front of the door opening. Water splashes on the door, runs down and collects in the recess at the bottom, flows through that channel to the sides where it runs back into the sump.The channel at the bottom had become clogged and the water could not drain easily back into the sump.It built up until it overflowed. Cleaning it out seemed to fix the problem.It worked for several loads before it overflowed again. This time it does not seem to be either of the first two problems.Is there any other possible cause of an overflow?Thanks.\015

May be this time the drain hose has been clogged or the drain hose is at a higher level than the unit or may be the drain pump has stopped functioning.

I have an equator PLS600 and I can't seem to get it to work. I have tried the WikiFix to help a stalled dishwasher, by adding water and vinegar. When I put on the wash cycle it does not run. Even with the short rinse cycle, the sprayer will not move, and the machine will just run through the cycle until it starts to drain. Please help!!! Thanks =)


Give the spray arm a spin to make sure it rotates. It should spin freely. If not, remove plastic spray arm clip, flip it over, replace it, and try again. Make sure holes in the spray arm are clear of debris. Spray arm must be clean for it to spin ... Equator 20 in. PLS600 Free-Standing Dishwasher

My sound conditioned Whirlpool dishwasher is real old. It fills up completely with water. It looks like it will overflow, so I stop it. I thought it always started washing from the start. Do they always fill completely up with water, then start washing. I never noticed. I am afraid the water will overflow. Can it? Last time I ran this, it had a real loud motor. I used to hear the motor running from the start, but now I don't, just water filling up to what looks like overflow if I let it. I baile

Bosch SHX45P05UC: i see from other forums this model often overflows within a year of being installed.

Dishwasher overflows I have a Maytag PDB3600AWX dishwasher. The pump works well, pumps all water out of the tub when reaching the appropriate cycle state. However, it keeps taking in water when it's not running / turned on (e.g., overnight) and the tub starts overflowing, cuasing obvious leakages (to the basement). What part needs to be replaced? Thanks, C Artz


Sounds like you've got a problem with the water intake valve(s). If it takes on water without water running in the sink, that is where I would look. If it happens when you use the sink, then I would also check your drain hose placement ... Dishwashers

Maytag dishwasher- Model # WU 502 serial # 145 192 EP- 03 series Water builds up in the bottom of the dishwasher, does not overflow but will not go down. Nothing appears wrong in the drains. Dishwasher is connected to the kitchen sink drain. Tried a seperate rinse cycle but did nothing to eleviate the problem just made the water rise a bit but still did not overflow out of the washer. This washer is old and I cannot find the manual that came with it.

I was an idiot and put dishsoap in the dishwasher because I ran out of regular dishwasher soap. Now the dishwasher keeps overflowing with bubbles. I keep wiping all the bubbles and extra water out but when I turn it back on it is again overflowing with bubbles and bubbles are leaking out the bottom. What can I do about this?


You must rinse all the soap out the best way is to make the drain hose lower than the tub of the washer and run the garden hose into the drum and slowly rotate the drum as you rinse it out after a complete rinse you should run a rinse and spin cycle ... Dishwashers

I have an Equator Mini Maid PLS602S dishwasher. It works fine, but the upper spray arm fell off and the clip and knob holding it in place are missing. Equator said they no longer make this model and don't have the parts. Can you tell me where to get the clip and knob to hold the upper spray arm in place. I know there is a little white clip - I actually had it but lost it, because when I tried to hold the arm in place with that, the next time I ran the dishwasher the arm fell off again. I
