Hello all--I have a kenmore dishwasher and it won't cycle through the wash cycle. It fills with water, then the soap dispenser opens but it never goes through actual washing. Then it drains and the heating element turns on. It was working on certain cycles (like 1 hour wash and smart wash) but now those have stopped working too. I read somewhere that it could be the float valve is not activated bc the water isn't high enough and it's not telling the control panel to start washing. I added more water to bottom of tub and sure it enough it worked but I know that is only a temporary fix. I also read on partsdr.com that water should never touch the heating element, so now I'm confused! Am I not getting enough water or is it the control panel?
