Dishwasher has been operating OK until suddenly failing to fill with water. Machine starts and develops warmth and humidity inside suggesting that some hot water is entering though none is visible. Do I need the Valve, Water Inlet or the upper Valve-Inlet, or both?

Mick for Model Number GU2400XTPT0

ANSWER Hello Mick, Check to make sure nothing has gotten under the float making the control think it's full of water. As long as the water hasn't been turned off to the unit, and nothing is holding the float up, it's a safe bet that the water inlet valve 8531669 has failed to open an is in need of replacement.
