Kitchen Aid Dishwasher Continously Takes Water


Hi,

I am having a problem with a Kitchen Aid dishwasher - it's about 10 Years old. The first problem (which I'm not sure is related to the second problem) is that it is leaking a little. Not sure where yet, but that brings me to the more important problem #2...

When the hot water supply is turned on, it the dishwasher continuously fills with water. It drains out fine, but it just runs and runs and runs. There is a "Clock noise" that I am hearing while this is going on. I have had to turn off the water supply as a temporary fix. Any thoughts?

Thanks!!!

Kitchen Aid Dishwasher Continously Takes Water


does it fill when the power is turned off or is the dishwasher running? Kill the power or open the door, does it still fill? If so the fill valve is sticking.
