#249816 Kenmore 665.16912001 Dishwasher Overflows Through Float

Posted by nomoney on 11 March 2013 - 10:11 AM

I have to dispel a couple of misconceptions here before they confuse the issue and lead our Apprentice astray:



This is incorrect.  The water charge into the basin is controlled by the timer program on the control board; it is a timed fill.  The float switch is there as a safety device incase the valve relay on the control board sticks closed or the valve sticks open.  



10 to 15 degrees is far too much tilt and will cause washability problems, wash pump starving and cavitation, and incomplete pumpouts.  The dishwasher should be roughly level, front to back and side to side. 

I stand corrected.  I stated that wrong. The fill IS timed and the float IS there for a failsafe to prevent overfilling. Sometimes things just dont come out right.
