Dishwasher not washing properly nor drying dishes

My Repair & Advice
Had repairman come over and take a look. At first he said the motor was bad. NOT! Not enough water entering pump to properly wash dishes. It turned out that the supply valve, being ~20 yrs old needed to be replaced. (it wouldn't isolate the dishwasher supply) Did that. Took off the supply valve to the dishwasher and found pieces of debris within the valve that was not allowing the solenoid to properly open or close the valve. I attempted to use the old adapter with the new valve but found that it caused about a 3 drop per minute leak. Bought a new adapter, used pipe dope to attach to new valve, VOILA, no leaks! Now I have a functioning dishwasher (Bosch), and a very happy wife and daughter.
