I have a kitchenaid KDTE404DSS0 dishwasher. It keeps

I have a kitchenaid KDTE404DSS0 dishwasher. It keeps stopping mid-cycle and the light on the front will flash. I have used the diagnostic mode to get codes 6-2 fill valve electrical problem. 6-4 Float switch open. 8-1 slow drain.the unit turns on all the leds light up in diagnostic mode. I have checked the drain line and water supply. the control board is still under warranty from kitchenaid so I had them send me a new one and installed it still stops midcycle. The thing all the codes have in common is the fuses and the control board. I believe the fuses are built into the board so they have been replaced also. Is there a way to test the fuses? If they are in the board where do I go next?

We have an LG Top load washer model #WT4870C. It just flooded our laundry room. The tub/tank was empty and the clothes were wet, water on the floor. We had an older washer do this once and it overflowed through the top and it was an easy repair of a clogged float switch line. Any thoughts on this one?

Kitchenaid model number KUIC18PNZSO under counter ice maker.

kitchenaid model number KUIC18PNZSO under counter ice maker. No power from the outlet built into the drain pump. No lights on controls or courtesy light. If I plug drain pump and other cord directly into wall outlet, everything lights up. Is it the float switch or what other components might cause this. I've removed control board and it appears great, no burnt spots or loose solder.JA: Can you guesstimate how old your KitchenAid is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?Customer: 3-4 years, KUIC 18PNZSOJA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?Customer: preferablyJA: Anything else we should know to help you best?Customer: I've pretty much done all of the trouble shooting and as stated, the only issue is no power coming from the plug built into the drain pump.

Bosch shu9925uc/u12 Dishwasher fills with water, but only to

bosch shu9925uc/u12 Dishwasher fills with water, but only to the top of the drain. Then, the motor keeps running indefinitely, but nothing else happens. The heating element is working. but it runs until I open it, and hit the cancel/drain button combination. At that point it drains, but incompletely (there is still water left in the bottom? any idea. I tried jogging the float switch, which activates the drain, but no other ideas. Thanks!
