For Whirlpool Float Switch Kit (Part Number: AP3138166)

Answer or Comment

My 5 year old dishwasher is leaking at Part AP3138166, the Float Switch. This only happens every 3 or 4 days and when the tub is full of water and in wash cycle. I'm guessing either the seal has failed or the switch is allowing too much water into the tub and its somehow overflowing thru the switch. Ive checked the float and it seems to move up and down freely. If it is the float switch, how hard is it to remove and replace? Thanks.

Hal J for Model Number KUDT03FT

ANSWER Hello Hal. It sounds like the unit is over filling and you will need to replace the water valve W10158389 on the unit.
