This water inlet valve should be located behind the lower kickplate panel in either the right or left corner. The attaching solenoids on the valve open and close according to the desired amount of water needed.
This part works with the following brands: Whirlpool, Admiral, Estate, Inglis, Kenmore, KitchenAid, Roper, Maytag, Crosley, Jenn-Air, Hardwick, Magic Chef, Amana, Caloric & Glenwood.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
First I shut off the water intake. Then disconnected it from the valve assembly. Then disconnected the hose on the other side of the valve assembly. Then removed and replaced the valve assembly, disconnecting and re-connecting the 4 wires attached to the 2 solenoids. Then re-connected the water intake and hose. Then turned the water back on.Then, noticing it leaking slightly, had to do it all over and include a small amount of teflon tape on the brass fitting that screwed into the valve assembly.Phew.

I removed access panle then disconected the wires, water inlet line, and water outlet line from the valve. then took the two screws that held the valve in place off and removed the old valve and replaced with the new. Its that easy. I had one problem that did'nt want to stop haunting me...water leaks at the conections. Tip: don't put access panle on untill sure there are no leaks. You might notice I had an earlier article with a float switch. It turns out that that was not the problem. This water valve was, and it works great again. Not bad for 24yrs old(yes, the dishwasher).
The water inlet valve would not allow enough water to run effectively. To R & R the part only a phillips screwdriver, a smaller adjustable wrench and pliers are needed. Turn the water supply off, & disconnect the water supply. Remove 2 screws attached to the cabinet and remove the rubber fill hose with pliers to open the clamp. Remove the inlet fitting from the old part and place on the new valve, using teflon tape. Attach the new part to the cabinet wall then the water supply to the old, reused fitting (also with teflon). Obviously, turn power off and disconnect the 2 double leads before beginning and replace when done. A fairly simple job , and my miraculous Maytag keeps on going!!
