Hi Bryan, i did check that float,i pulled the rounde top off and checked that the little nub was able to spring back when pushed down and cleaned all around it. We started it again ,and here's what happened.
2. Faint hum.can hear a small trickle of water coming in, lights on the panel that are lit are,normal wash,sensing,and washing. Timer reads 63 min.
3.Stayed this way until timer said 53 then jumped to 48, when it got down to 32 it went back up to 48 and sounded like it was washing.
4. it got to 32 min. then rinsing light came on, we opened it up and it was hot and steamy inside, there was no water in the bottom and the soap in the dispenser was not dissolved.
we have started it before and it will do the faint hum, then shut down after a few minutes and the start light will be blinking, we open it up and close it and press the start button and it pumps water into the drain and stops
