I'm pretty sure I need to replace the float switch in this dishwasher but I'm finding it very difficult to access. Are there instructions available to show how to get at this? (Drain pump runs continuously, cycles do not advance, diagnostic test stays on 0 and cycles don't advance in diagnostics either.)

Have you checked the base of the dishwasher for a possible water leak?

I don't see any leaks in the base.

You have to remove the dishwasher from the cabinet and remove the left side panel. This job is not too difficult.

Hi, Ive got similar problems. I cant remove side panel till I take off ther top panel. I just cant see how to get the top off. I understand I'm looking for clips to push or similar. Can't see anything that will push, or squeeze!

Are they on the back? Can anyone a give precise answer ( Mine is an SGS 4012.

Apologies to original questioner, but hope this helps.

In the past, occasionally a small amount of grayish water has leaked from the machine (probably fewer than one cycle in 50) and I do have seepage into the tub which sometimes becomes visible if the machine isn't run for a couple of days.

Gene,

Sorry, didn't see your reply. Thanks. I had tried to remove that panel but was unsuccessful. I'll try again.

The side panel is secured with a few screws around.

Replacement of the level switch assembly has fixed the problem--thanks. Now I have to stop water from seeping in I believe through the drain hose even though I restored the loop in the hose higher than the drain.

It can be a bad water inlet valve as well.
