My dishwasher fills and drains at the same time.
Answer Hello Dave. The solenoid is bad and will need to be replaced on the unit.
When the drain selenoid trips water drips from the bottom of the selenoid. there is no water coming from any where else. Can i just replace the selenoid--or do i need to do more?
Answer Everett, You'll need to do more. You really don't need the solenoid WD21X802. The dripping water is more likely dripping from the flapper shaft seal WD8X181 and push on nut WR2X7054 . You will need to remove the solenoid assembly, and the linkage to access and replace the seal and nut on the shaft. be very careful removing and installing the new seal.
Will the drain solenoid click before it fails.
Answer Hello Ray,
The drain solenoid clicks when it is operating properly in the sense that when the solenoid activates you will hear an audible click sound pulling the arm down.
DISHWASHER RUNS FOR 4 MIN. THEN WE GET ERROR MESSGE C1, OR C2. THE WATER IS ALL PUMPED OUT.
WE FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS, BUT IT DOES NOT FIX IT. WHAT IS GOING ON?
Answer Hello David,
You may want to check the drain pump gate valve. If the gate valve did not return to the closed position then the pump needs to be replaced. You may also have a drain sensor switch that is shorted or closed. Do a continuity check on the switch to make sure it is open. If it is closed then you will need to replace switch. Also check your drain solenoid to make sure that it is not stuck down. If it is then it needs to be replaced. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
not getting any water to dishwasher can anyone help!
Answer Mario, Are you sure the water and the water shut off(usually under the kitchen sink) are open and the water is supplied to the fill valve. Check inside the tub,in the front left corner, and make sure the float assembly is not stuck in the up position. You'll need to remove the lower access panel and kickplate, and check the wiring to the water inlet valve and flaot switch assembly. A multimeter will come in handy to check the swich circuits and voltage to the fill valve solenoid.Here's some help on meter usage if you need it.
