Unit leaks water near float area. What could cause that problem? Is unit too full of water and going down around float stem?
Answer Hello Bailey. Yes, if the unit is overfilling with water, it can cause the water to go down the float stem on the unit. if that is the case, the the float switch is reading good, you will need to order and replace the water valve on the unit.
if my dishwasher isn't draining could that be rellated to the float.
Answer No, the float is what regulates the level of water in the tub when filling up for the wash and rinse cycles. You need to start checking in the pump area, along with making sure there is no obstruction within the drain hose.
