We had a clear-weather power event here last night. No storms, but the power went out, back on for about 2 seconds, then out for 2.5 hours. This morning I started a load of dishes and noticed I didn't hear the water turn on when the cycle started. No matter which cycles I try, no incoming water. Nothing is holding the float switch up, so it should be calling for water. The valves are all on, and the the lights on the controls all light when pushed. I read on another post here that the valve operates on 110V, so I pulled the wires from the inlet valve, put a tester light on the power leads and when the cycle starts – no light. To test the valve itself, I made up a power cord, connected the leads to the inlet valve and when I started the cycle, plugged in the power cord and...water flows through the inlet valve. I let the entire cycle run this way, plugging the power cord in to open the valve at the right times, and unplugging it to avoid an overflow. I also noticed that the soap door didn't open when the main wash started, so had to do that manually. Seems that the electronics went bad? What other parts should I be looking at, or is it time for the repairman? The washer itself is 13 years old and never had a problem until now.

Is this problem likely the water inlet valve? Wash cycle works fine with water filling to correct level. When the rinse cycle starts, most of the time now little to no water comes in. I open the door and verify the float valve is down all the way and moves freely. If I cancel and just start the rinse cycle, it works fine as long as I wait awhile for it to cool down. Can't tell if its an intermittent valve or control panel heat issue. What voltage measurements would I expect to get if I monitor the valve?

No water is coming in. I dumped some water into the machine. It seemed to work as usual.

My Kitchen Aid Dishwasher just flooded my kitchen. After cleaning up the mess and digging into unit to see what went wrong, I discovered that everything seems to work properly, except for one thing. The dishwashwer doesn't turn off the incoming water supply. No matter the cycle, the incoming water is open and coming in? What would cause this?

Would the water inlet valve have an occasional leak? It's just a plastic apparatus, but there is no significant structural fault. (none that I can see) It seems to be very incidental/occasional, but enough to start curling the hardwood flooring. Thank-You, Jon
