If you are experiencing problems with your dishwasher, here are some common problems.
Not filling with water:
All dishwashers have a water fill safety switch. This is to keep the dishwasher from over filling.
a. Check water fill float, located in the bottom of dishwasher under the lower basket.
Raise and lower float gently and listen for a clicking sound. If there is no sound, you have a bad float switch.
b. Sometimes things will lodge themselves under the float and prevent the float from lowering and letting the water in.
Or will get soap build up and not let the float lower itself. Just clean the bottom of the dishwasher, around the float.
