Thank you for answering my question, but how does one check the inlet part number AP3178610?
ANSWER Hello Sherry. You will need to check and see if the water level inside the dishwasher is filling up to the bottom of the heater. If it is low, then the inlet valve 8531669 is bad and will need to be replaced. Once the dishwasher fills, open the door and see how much water is in the bottom of the unit. Hope this helps.
