GE dishwasher wont fill with water
Posted 17 June 2005 - 06:41 PM
I checked to see if I was getting voltage to the solenoid with a multimeter but got no reading. I shorted (actually disconnected and bypassed) the float switch to see if that was the problem and still got no voltage reading when I turned the dishwasher on. Does anyone have any further troubleshooting tips?

When I went back with both parts I installed the cheaper switch first and tried it. It started filling just fine, it passed my complete checkout so I returned the timer unopened. I see it often enough now to stock the switches on the truck.
I've been known to cut the orange and black wires going to the switch and wire nut them together to get the machine running while a switch was on order. This locks it in heat dry mode.
I never really studied the wiring diagram to see why it does this. Don't really have to at this point.

By the way, instead of actually cutting the wires to nut them together I just pulled out one of the prongs of the bad switch and put the terminater for the orange wire on one end and the blue wire on the other, taped them together and was good to go.
