CustomerLisa from Mastic Beach NY

Intake valve was leaking

removed two screws the disconnected the two hoses (after shutting the water off of course). It was easy.
Unfortunatley the water warped the wood under the vinyl flooring which is new and I really love. I would suggest that a rubber or some type of water proof material be placed under the dishwasher so that if it leaks it won't get at the subflooring. If this had been the case I would have noticed the leak right away.

CustomerRonald from Chardon OH

Dishwasher ran through cycle but no water ever entered the washer.

Turned off water & pulled plug from electrical outlet. Two screws removed the lower cover, two more screws hidden behind the opened door allowed the removal of the bottom panel. Laid a towel under the valve on the lower left to catch water & disconnected the inlet fitting with a 1/2" wrench. Remove the two screws holding water inlet valve next. With valve loose, remove electrical connector and drain hose (pliers). Valve has an elbow fitting that will need to be removed and installed on new valve - use Teflon tape or paste for a leak-free assembly. Reattach the drain hose & electrical connector before installing the valve using the two screws. Once in place, re-attach the inlet fitting (no Teflon required on tapered seats) and make sure everything is tight. Test washer through one cycle for water flow and no leaks. If all is good, remove towel and tools, then re-install the two lower panels. Clean up and you are done!

CustomerANDREW from APPLETON WI

No water during wash cycle, steam only

After checking various forums and advice, the suggested repair was a new water inlet valve. It was easy to change but I wasted $30 as it did not cure the problem. Dishwasher is only 2 years old and is cheaper to replace then have someone come and look at it. So it did not fix the problem, but I recommend Parts Select, the price was fair and part arrived very quickly.

CustomerMichael from Surprise AZ

Water was not filling the dishwasher at the approbriate time in the cycle.

Pulled the dishwasher out, turned it on the side to gain access to the inlet valve, removed the inlet valve. The hard part was getting the valve fitting that didn't come with the inlet valve. I had to use liqued wrench to loosen the hard water deposits to get it off. Once it was off, putting the new valve on was easy. Also of note, when I tested the old vlalve with an Ohm meeter it read 8 M ohm, not infinity. The new one only measured at about 1k ohm.

CustomerJimmy from Covington LA

No water in dishwasher

Removed kick plate at lower front of unit. At lower left is water inlet valve. Measured voltage across inlet valve solenoid at start of cycle. Was getting 120V to solenoid, but solenoid not opening valve thus no water going into dishwasher. Ordered replacement inlet valve. To remove inlet valve, disconnect two wires from valve assembly, disconnect water supply tube and remove two screws from mounting bracket. Now you can remove water hose that goes to dishwasher. Reverse order for install of new valve assy.
