could the water intake vavle be the cause of the dishwasher trying to start 4 or 5 times and then going to cancel/drain because it fails to start Jen for Model KUDS30IXBL1
ANSWER Jen, Yes a faulty or clogged water valve could create the issue as you described it. If the control board does not see a specific circuit from the float switch, within a specific time, the control will eventually cancel the cycle and shut itself off. Also check and make sure, there are no suds in the water after the dishwasher fills and starts to wash.
