Backfilling is just a word I use to get started. I find that after a day or so the bottom of the dishwasher is full up to the door lip.
I can turn off both the hot and cold water valves but we use the sink regularly.
I have detected that the water in the bottom of the D/W is grey water as opposed to fresh water.
well there should be a shutoff just for the dish washer under the sink. its usually connected to the hot water supply. try that first.
if that doesn't do it then your valve flap (check valve) is either missing or worn and it letting water back into the machine. this is on the drain part of the pump. # XXXXX its one of the two. hope this helps, thanks, Bryan
I have found the d/w valve and can shut it off.
I see the part #38 on the graphic. I will check it out.
I watched an installation video for the valve and thought I understood it. I now have the part and ready for installation, however, I cant' get past the first step. I can't find again the video. Can you tell me where to look.
if you need the valve replacement video click this blue link.
I'm sorry. I thought you would have seen the previous chats. You had suggested the check valve as the part I needed. The video you suggest is for the water inlet valve.
I need instructions an how to replace the check valve which I now have.
After I sent the first msg today, I continued to search for the video. I finally found it at: http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Check-Valve/8268375/939846#repairHelpVideoTabs
Hower, I soon discovered that their view of inside the dishwasher was quite different than mine so was no help.
