Need Appliance Repair Help? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
Hello. My name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you with your appliance question today. Please wait a few moments while I review your question.
I'm sorry to hear about your issue. There are only 2 things that would cause water to fill up the dishwasher when the dishwasher is not in use. If it's dirty water, then that comes form the drain line because there is no high rise drain loop under your sink. What that means is that the drain hose should be routed to the bottom of your countertop before it goes down into the drain so that water can't backflow into the dishwasher.
Now the other more likely case is that the dishwasher's electronic water valve isn't sealing up properly. That can only be caused because the electronic water valve is bad on the dishwasher (which does happen in batches on new dishwasher sometimes), or your water pressure is dropping below 40psi which causes the valve to not seal up. If the pressure isn't high enough or it drops down when your sprinklers come on or something like that, you'd need to talk to a plumber to fix that. If the valve is just not sealing up, call warranty and they will replace the valve with a new valve at no charge.

No, actually the pressure in a normal house should be at least above 60psi. These valves are rated between 40psi and 110 psi. If you're lower than 40psi, that would be a big problem.
