I just bought a new inlet valve. How do I access the old valve to replace it? Do I need to remove the washer door? If so, how do I remove it properly?
Answer Hello Jack. You need to turn off the water and remove the toe panel. Once removed, then you can access the water line and remove it from the valve. Then remove the hose and screws and wires from the valve and replace the water valve on the unit.

Dishwasher makes a lot of noise when filling then runs normally
Answer Andrew, The water inlet valve WD15X10003 is the place to start, based on your post information. You also want to flush the water supply line, to clear any debris in the pipes.
GE Hotpoint dishwasher wont fill, checked switch and inlet valve,switch has continuity when float is down and solenoid gets 1078 ohms, checked volts comimg from switch when on and getting 1.6 volts, is that enough for solenoid valve?
Answer Hello Dan,
The water valve is a 120Vac component. The issue needs to be traced back through the harness. You could have a burned wire nut at the power connection, a bad control/timer, a bad door switch, or a bad timer, or the problem can be all the way back i the breaker box (bad breaker or connection to the breaker. The tech sheet on the unit has a wiring diagram on it that should carry you through the circuitry.
New on - off valve, water line, water inlet valve - is filling - soap on door from main cup. Open door later in cycles not enough water to wash????
Answer Ray, Remove the flaot cover WD12X445 and the lower access panel, check that the float and stem are not "sticking" due to a build up of detergent and residue. Also check the float switch bracket WD12X10023 and switch, make sure they have not been dislodged or are out of alignment. You'll also need to check and make sure you have a water system that can supply an avaerage of 7((seven) gallons of water per minute, for the machine to fill properly.
There is no continuity between the terminals on the inlet valve solenoid. Should I replace the valve?
Answer Hello Roy,
Make sure if your meter is not auto-ranging, that it is on the X1 setting. If this is the way it is and you have tested your test leads by touching them together and you are still not getting a reading, then you will need to replace the water valve WD15X10003. You should check for 120VAC to the water valve. If power to the valve then you need to replace valve. If no power you want to find where you are loosing power.
water leaking out of bottom left corner when running
Answer Gordon, First, check and make sure the dishwasher is level in both directions, with the door open, check and make sure both tub corner baffles are present and mounted to the tub WD8X227,WD8X228. If all's OK remove and check or replace the lower spray arm assembly WD22X154 . Thanks
When the dishwasher is sitting idle it slowly fills with water. What is the problem? Thank you
Answer Hello Gene. Based on the information you provided, it sounds like the water valve WD15X10003 is bad and will need to be replaced on the unit.
The subject dishwasher works well but water leaks on the right bottom corner of the door. The right bottom corner if one faces the dishwasher. We replaced the door gasket and the coner baffles, but it still leaks. How can we fix this leak?
Answer Hi. Double check the door gasket that it is not twisted or kinked in the rt. area. Open the door and wipe the inner door seal area and the tub area dry. Look at the front of the tub inner lower corners and clean all build up of debris there. Does the door latch feel spongy and tight when closed? Start the unit and let it cycle a few minutes. Slowly open the door so you do not fling out water. Look at the side of the inner door panel to see where the door leaks at the rt. corner. Remove the toe kick cover and see if the legs are down against the floor so the full tub does not cock the door hinge while in operation and allow the unit to leak. There are separate tub corner baffles that are L-shaped approx. 1-1/2 x 1-3/4 ". Part # WD8X228 and part # WD8X227. If these are missing the leak will because of it. Thank You.
