On Craigslist here in Denver, says the fill valve is bad. Also I think the decimal point is one space too far to the right...

Wasnít sure on the model, thought the 14 series looked different than this, but Iím not the expert either... Iím mostly interested in either a KDSS-16 or 17

Reggie, just the 14 series Custom looks like this--resembling the 12 series.  The Imperial and Superba 14 series models do look similar to what you think of as the 14 series.  The item just above the door lock handle is the switch you flip horizontally to start the dishwasher.

This model is my daily driver. Very good cleaning with one short cycle. The draw back is, it does not have a door switch! You can open it any time in the cycle and it keeps running. I doused my kitchen (and myself) finding this out.

Makes sense. Are these pump drained then? I know the older models were not.

I unleashed a fountain when I opened the lid on that top load Kitchenaid, the thing stopped but there was still plenty of momentum going, water splashed everywhere!

There is supposed to be a door switch. It might not be operational, but there is supposed to be one.  You have to refrain from swinging the door wide open until the water all returns to the sump and then you don't get soaked. With the top loaders, you have to hold the door down  after you unlatch the lid to give the water time to settle.

unless the door switch is internal to the door there is no provision for one.

Door switch is inside door

The switch is in the door underneath the latch mechanism. Looks like it could be tricky to get to. Itís the item on the diagram without an item # (cut off in the pic).
