The dishes on the top rack are left dirty. Especially the ones in the corners of the rack.
We have replaced the lower inlet valve and that seemed to fix the problem for about 4 weeks. Could this be the valve inlet to the upper rack? If so, how do I get at it?
Answer Hello. You will need to remove the spray arms and make sure they are clear of debris. There is only one inlet valve on this unit. Also check the float and make sure it is clean, allowing enough water to come into the unit. Hope this helps.

Dishwasher will not fill with water ,powers up. I'm not sure what to replace door lock, float, or water inlet valve?
Answer Hello Dean. You will need to check the float and float switch. If good and there is power to the water valve, but not filling with water, you will need to replace the valve 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
My dishwasher is leaking water. Usually happens in the morning and it has not been running all night. Is this a valve problem?
If the unit is leaking and the tub is filled with water then the most likely cause would be the water valve allowing water to enter the unit.
Dishwasher is very loud at start of cycle when filling. Does this mean the fill valve is bad? Please advise. Thank you.
Answer Jennifer, Based on the post information, Yes, you most likely have an issue in the water valve 8531669. When you replace the valve, you also want to "flush" the water supply line for 30 to 60 seconds, to clear any accumulated debris in the pipes.
Does not rinse.See soap bubbles at the bottom at the end of the whole cycle.What could be the problem?
Answer Hello Seth,
You may want to check your drain to make sure that the drain is clear and check pump for obstructions. Also you should start a cycle without anything in the unit and no detergent to see if bubbles are appearing. If this is the case you can use a little veggie oil or salt in the cycle to disperse suds. The unit may need to be run through a couple of cycles to cleanse system of excess build up of detergent. You may also need to reduce the amount of detergent being used.
Water will not fill machine. Runs through cycle with no other problems.
Answer Hello Frank,
To check the unit for normal operation:
1. Check that the overflow protection float is free to move "up" and "down" Check that the overfill switch in opening and closing properly electrically and mechanically.
2. Check for continuity between the contacts on the fill valve.
3. Check for 120VAC between P8 and P2-3.
