My dishwasher will not fill with water. When I turn it on it makes a continuous grumbling noise. Could it be the water inlet valve or is it something more serious? How can I tell?
Answer Hello Joe,
You should check for items preventing the float switch from dropping. Check the drain pump also. From this point, you need to verify the Model number from the units' I.D. tag. This will enable us to actually pull a wiring diagram and parts list for diagnostic and repair parts for you. Thank you for your patience and understanding in this matter.
Water keeps filling in DW even when not in use. What Part is needed?
Answer Hello! Based on the information provided you'll need to replace the water inlet valve part number 8531669. Thanks!
After installing, water line, drain and electrical, not enough water going in and didn't drain and didn't completely the cycle. I went back to Lowes and I was told I no longer have warranty. Please help. I was told that there is a shipping rod that maybe I forgot to remove?
Answer Hello Troy,
You need to verify sufficient water pressure to the unit and make sure you haven't crimped the water/drain lines during the units' installation. If no problems are found, I would replace the water inlet valve and the drain pump. The part numbers will of course be determined by the model number as with all appliances.
Water Inlet Valve two (2) wires to power one with a strip on it
which one goes where^
Answer PDS, It really doesn't matter which wire goes where on the fill valve, it is not a polarity sensitive valve. The brown and white wire is the 120 VAC power supply and needs to be attached to the "float / Overfill" switch and the brown wire is the "Neutral" leg of the circuit and will be attached to the main control board in the console.
Note: This question is for the older version of this part, but we thought you might still find it helpful
Water continue to run in the dishwasher. Is this due to the water fill /inlet valve?
Answer Hello Casey. If water is filling the dishwasher, and the unit is not on, you will need to order and replace the water valve on the unit.
