I have a GE dishwasher that I bought new Jan. 2009. I do not use my dishwasher but maybe once every two weeks, as it is just me. I noticed my laminate wood floor bubbled in front of dishwasher. My dishwasher, I'm assumming leaks only when I use it. It doesn't flood. I haven't used it now in a month and took the front panel off and everything is dry under the dishwasher. Could this mean the flood assembly switch is out? Or am I looking a something more major. I thought dishwashers should last at least 12 years and longer if you don't use it that often like me. Thanks

My dishwasher keeps tripping its breaker. I went through the test mode and all components worked until I activated the water valve, which caused the breaker to trip. Not sure how to test the flood switch- I know the valve itself functions by wiring it to 115v on the bench. Could the flood switch be tripping the breaker?

The dishwasher will not fill with water. I ordered the inlet valve and installed it but did not fix the problem. I tested the flood switch and between the end terminals the continuity swung from infinity to no continuity. No continuity using the center pin in the test. I don't want to simply continue throwing parts at this. Please offer your insight.

Dishwasher won't fill with water. Tested voltage at the inlet valve and there wasn't enough when I thought it should be filling. Disassembled the float, it appeared clear and was making the clicking sound when I pressed on the stem. Tested continuity of the float switch and was surprised that it had continuity when the switch wasn't pressed but lost continuity when the switch was pressed, just the opposite of what I'd expect. I thought the switch would have continuity while pressed. Do you think it's a faulty float switch?

The dishwasher was pouring out the flood switch WD12X10151 bottom until the floor. To check the flood switch I removed it from the machine and cleaned all of the float assembly. With my meter it showed no continuity. When I pressed in the lever in the switch I got continuity. Is that OK? When I reassembled the unit, put the stem and cover together I checked the unit and got continuity (because the cap was pushing down on the stem and lever) When water is in the machine will it float the cap enough to disengage the switch? Anything else I should look for or do I need a new switch? Thank you in advance for your help. Where should I check?

My dishwasher won't drain at all. It had been working on and off for a couple of weeks. I had been able to press the reset a few times to get it drain. Now when I do that step, it just attempts to run the cycle selected (wash, rinse, etc) It will continue to fill if I try it again. I've cut the power to reset it, but it made no difference. I cleaned the drain hose (wasn't obstructed). The drain hose was installed originally with a large loop under the sink instead of an air gap (I understood this was common). I pulled the drain pump and tested it and it does run. I don't think this model has a solenoid that activates the pump unless it is part of the control panel. Suggestions?

The unit intermittently starts the wash cycle. At times you need to open and reclose the unit and reselect the wash cycle before the unit will start to run. Another symptom, the light that indicates the wash cycle is complete never goes out

It appears dishwasher is intermittently either not filling or overfilling; when it doen't fill, we've opened the machine to find the detergent at the bottom of the tank; over fill causes machine to leak. Is the problem the flood switch #308 or the water inlet valve?
