Nautilus Dishwasher filling when not in use
« on: January 01, 2010, 12:44:38 PM »
Happy New Year to everyone!  So hubby and I decided to entertain at the shore house for NYE this year. Upon arrival, my suspicions were confirmed that my dishwasher was filling on it's own when not in use.  I suspected it was filling slightly over the summer when I was living here full time but didn't think much of it as I used the dishwasher everyday and assumed that terrible DIYS'er previous owner hooked up the garbage disposal wrong and chalked it up to water "regurge".  We've only had this home since June so I am uncovering little tid bits here and there.

After leaving the place for a few months, I noticed a few inches of water upon return (Thanksgiving) so I started "experimenting" and exploring.  The only thing that has stopped the machine from filling on it's own while not in use is shutting the water supply off completely to the machine.  So my gut tells me it's the water valve inlet as this is what holds and regulates the pressure for the machine from the water source.

Any thoughts before I order and replace it?  Thanks in advance!

Model GSD4000J00BB

Hi regnursepm99,

Sounds like a bad water valve to me.

Water Valve: Part# WD15X10003 icon
Replace the water valve and you should be good to go.  O0

I am having the same problem with my GE Dishwasher and was about to order a new water valve inlet for it until I read this.  I know this is for a washer but is it possible to trouble shoot my dishwasher the same as this as suggested by jumptrout51 and JW before replacing?  My dishwasher is < 3 years old and has had minimal use.

No Your Dishwasher is different.

A dishwasher fills on time and a washer fills until the water level/pressure switch opens up.

A dishwasher does not have the same switch.

Also the float inside the dishwasher is only there for safety. If the timer would get stuck and keep the water fill valve energized the float would kill power to the dishwasher valve keeping it from over filling.

You will need to replace the valve in your dishwasher to repair the problem.

You guys were SPOT ON (again)...Just got around to FINALLY fixing this dishwasher at the shore house and it was a bad water valve.  I ordered the part from here and it did the trick.  There's no more water filling up when not in use and I don't have to remember to shut off the hot water to the dishwasher before we leave  O0
