I just recently replaced my water inlet valve with a new one. The dishwasher does not filll up the way that it used to. Does it fill up by time or is done by the float? I checked the float and the micro switch underneath with my meter and it checked out okay. The supply pressure is 80 psi,and the water inlet is clear of any debris.
ANSWER David, Actually the water fill cycle is controlled bu time and the float switch, which ever "opens" first. Under ideal conditions, the dishwasher starts to fill,(1.7 gal.) then the fill stops for a few seconds, then the motor starts to run. W10158389 is the correct fill valve part number based on the model number you supplied, and as long as you have a 3/8" I.D. water supply line, you should be fine. Here's some tech info " Supply Water Flow Rate: To fill 1.9 liters (2 quarts) in 27 seconds, 120 psi max., 20 psi min. Supply Water Temperature: 49°C (120°F) (Before starting a cycle, run water from sink faucet until hot). Water Charge: (Normal cycle with OWL) 6.5 liters. Fill valve Energized at beginning of all washes and rinses (up to 2:50 min.) so you can verify the operation of the machine.
