The unit turns on/off just fine. But once powered on the unit will go to the drain mode for a few seconds and then reset and start again with drain mode. My husband pulled it of the cabinet and noticed there is a red plastic piece that seems to stay down to low, so he powered the unit back on and held this red piece up and noticed the water drains and slightly fills up BUT the dishwasher will not power the water through its sprayers.
ANSWER Hello Lily,
These are simple to repair after a few years of figuring them out. You need to remove the power from the unit and turn off the water. Remove the water inlet valve and set it aside. Using a wet vac or wicking the water out of the base with the corners of a towel not washed with fabric softener, (this will repel the water instead of wicking it out), dry all of the water out of the base. It needs to be dry to operate properly. When this is complete, install a new water inlet valve and your repair is complete as long as you have no water leaks at the new water inlet valve.
