Having trouble with Kitchenaid Ice Machine KUIC15PRXS. The

Having trouble with Kitchenaid Ice Machine KUIC15PRXS. The unit over flowed a few weeks ago. Unplugged for a few days and the plugged back in. I can hear the drain pump and see it discharging water into the garbage disposal. Unit ran for several days just fine, made lots of ice. Then woke up one morning to the blue light being off and the bin full of ice and water. Removed the water from the bin and went to work. Came back home to the bin being half full of water again but the blue light was still off. I didn't think to unplug the unit. It seems that for some reason the drain pump stops working and unit turns itself off only to try and run another cycle some time later but the pump doesn't drain. I have called for service but I haven't found anyone that seems to want to come fix it. Any ideas or help are greatly appreciated.

My daughter has a GE Quiet Power 3 Dishwasher

My daughter has a GE Quiet Power 3 Dishwasher (GHDA480N10WW). Once in a while, the water does not drain out and even overflows on the floor. Doesn't happen all the time. I've cleaned the trap and checked the base of the tub. She says when this happens, she pushes START again and it empties the water but does not go through a complete wash cycle, like it had turned off before it was completed.JA: Sometimes appliance issues that that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Appliance Technician I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Is there anything else the Appliance Technician should be aware of?Customer: She has tried several different cycles like the Pots and Pans and short cycle but she is not sure if any of these are causing the problem but she uses normal cycle the most.JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Appliance Technician about your situation and then connect you two.

No Ezekiel Technician please. I've been working with

No Ezekiel Technician please.I've been working with this under counter ice maker since June 1 and you might want to go back and look at previous comments but this ice Maker does not make full sheets of ice and I've been advised that it could be a result of not enough water. My understanding of this operation is that the water valve opens up and fills the water bend. This valve shuts down and the pump circulates the water over the evaporator to form ice. How is the amount of water that is provided to the water bend/holder determined? Is this regulated by Time or is there an upper level float switch or other ?
