Hi,Welcome to Just Answer, My name isXXXXX will be helping you with your appliance issue today.


first off after you start this and it fills with water how much water is in the bottom in inches? Does it reach the heater?

Customer: replied 6 years ago.
I think so, but i'm just going to try it.

Customer: replied 6 years ago.
Ok the water is just touching the lower edge of the heater.
Expert:  Bryan replied 6 years ago.
so how deep do you think in the center?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
Maybe 1-1/4" from the grill at the bottom, but just below the bottom spray arm assembly.
