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
How do I replace step by step the Inlet Valve for the dishwasher? Do you have any repair manuals?
We do not have a service manual for this unit. To remove the water valve on the unit, remove power to unit or turn off breaker and shut off water supply. Remove the lower access panel by removing the 1/4" screws that hold them in place. Remove the water line from the water valve. A crescent wrench will work for this. Remove the water valve and if there is an L connector on it remove the Connector and switch to the new valve. Reinstall in reverse.
Dishwasher runs but does not fill with water.
You will want to check to make sure that the float on the left front of tub is not stuck in the up position. Also check to make sure that the float switch is good. If the switch is reading open when pushed in the the switch is bad and needs to be replaced. If this checks ok then check for 120 vac to the water valve when unit is calling for water. If there is not 120 vac then check at the timer for 120 vac on the water circuit. This circuit can be found on the wiring diagram. If it is sending 120 vac but water valve is not getting 120 vac then you would have a faulty wire. If you get 120 vac to the valve and no water then the water valve WD15X10003 would need to be replaced. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3.
