    Check that first, move it up and down, you should hear a clicking sound.

    Your float may be stuck.

    Default Thanks Jake But...

    Thanks for sending me the info on the float I bought this dishwasher used It doesnt have the #32 float as in the diagram. It didnt come with one. Its missing. DO i need it? I was going to replace the Valve/regulator where the main water hose come into . It looks like its the first valve the hose go into from the fauset. Its on the bottom near the front Its white and is hooked on a metal bracket and has 120 v 60mz 7w writen on the bracket. it looks like its down around where 23-24 are. Any other Ideas please let me know

    Yes, you definitely need a float.

    Here's the float for your model:
