Start by removing the dishwasher from cabinet. Oh, don't forget to turn off water supply and also don't forget to install a plug on garbage disposer so when your other half uses the sink while you are outside you don't end up with a leak! Both supplied hoses installed easily, the third which I used semi flexible clear tubing with clamps deemed more difficult to bend, so I soaked the hose in very hot water to make it more pliable thus making the bends easily. I then had to wait until I was sure I captured the culprit before re-installing the unit.Your sales person was very informative and knowledgable and helped immensely!

Well after trouble shooting several components , the fill valve, the check valve , the pump motor all it turned out to be is the supply line to the dishwasher. I had installed one of those lines with an anti flood check valve in the line. Thinking it was a smart idea so if I were not home it would keep from flooding my basement etc. even when you remove the line and run it into a bucket you still get flow. But unknown to myself a majority of your appliances do not work well with these lines because when the solenoid opens it causes a surge and the check valve tries to restrict the flow. After soapy of these surges the valve sticks . When I replaced the line with a standard supply line it solved the problem. So for about $15.00 you could save yourself a lot of headaches and money by replacing that first. I'm not saying it will be the solution but start there first even if your getting water flow through that line. By the way the manufacturer of those lines at least the one I bought less than 5 montages ago do not mention that on their package and by the time you come to that conclusion you may have spent a lot of money trying to fix your machine. I had three techs that couldn't figure it out. Also the machine I have is a kitchen aid but its a common problem on a lot of brands including washing machines for clothes.

Removed the dishwasher from under the counter, disconnected the copper water tubing, placed it upside down, removed the old pump and replaced with new. The only iffy situation is making sure the copper tubing doesn't kink when removing the dishwasher and putting it back into the cabinet. Very simple, my husband can fix anything. Your video was very helpful as well.
