I was not sure if it was the inlet valve since it would fill with water the first cycle. After that all other cycles would run but no water would be in the dishwasher. I checked the voltage at the valve and found that 120v was applied when the water should be coming in but that I could not hear the water entering the dishwasher. I ordered the valve from this site and had it in 3 days. Spent an hour changing the valve and it works PERFECT! You do not need to tip the dishwasher on its side. Just trip the circuit breaker, shut off water and disconnect where the main goes into the inlet valve. Slide your dishwasher out and get your hands dirty. Not much to explain about it. Very simple repair. I have never done this type of work but would recommend after getting everything together to run the dishwasher a complete cycle with the bottom part off to make sure you don't have any water leaking. Good Luck - Do it yourself and save some cash.....
