I replaced the water inlet valve due to no water coming into the unit. Tested the float switch and it is fine, also disconnected connection to the I let valve and ran through the drain cycle to get to a full cycle an am getting 120 volts to the inlet valve but I still am not getting water through the valve. Could I have a defective unit or could there be another problem?
With having 120 vac to the water valve, this should energize the valve to allow the water to come through. You will want to double check to make sure that the water is turned on at the supply and check to make sure that there is water getting to the valve. If the valve is getting water and getting power then the valve would be the defective and need to be replaced.
Dishwasher runs does not fill with the water. What is wrong?
Answer Hello Margaret. Check and see if the float is stuck in the unit. If not, then make sure the float switch is good. If so, then the water valve is bad and will need to be replaced on the unit. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
