A Crosley dishwasher is a key player in the kitchen, keeping all your cooking tools ready for use and the entire kitchen shipshape. On those rare occasions where you find your dishwasher refusing to fill, you can do some simple troubleshooting to get it working again.
The overflow float has to be able to move up and down freely for the dishwasher to be able to fill. If an object of any kind is blocking it, remove it. Make sure the overflow float isn't stuck at the highest point, because in that position, the fill valve can't let any water in to fill the tub.
One of the dishwasher parts that controls the overflow float is the overflow float switch, the element that stops the flow of water into the dishwasher when the height of the float makes it clear that the water level is too high. If this small switch fails, the dishwasher won't fill. Check the switch and replace it if necessary.
If the water inlet valve gets stuck in a closed position, the dishwasher won't fill with water; if it's stuck in the open position, the dishwasher fills with water even if it isn't turned on. When it gets stuck in the middle, the dishwasher fills halfway and you're likely to hear a lot of noise from the pump. In any of these situations, a dishwasher repair is urgently needed.
