FIrst I had to turn off the water supply, remove the bad part and cap off the copper water line. I found the correct part on line and ordered it. When the part came, I uncapped the water line, doped the ends and refit the valve. Turned the water on an voila!. I actually did it! I was pretty proud of myself. It only cost me the price of the part and not a plumbers fees as well.

Located where the dishwasher was leaking from and by referencing the parts catalog determined that it was the water valve. I ordered the part from Parts select and replaced the part when it arrived. Replacing the part was very easy and I now have a working dishwasher again.
Easy as pie. Just turned off water and electricity. Disconnected hoses and wires and replaced with the new valve.
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.
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.
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!
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.
removed back cover covering compressor and condenseing fan ,located vavle system,there are two the one leaking was the single solenoid vavle .To remove ,remove screws holding the double solenoid cause the single one is mounted to the double one ,once that done undo the water lines under the double vavle and pull out vavles .The bracket holding the single is connected to the double one by two screws,then undo the water lines ,then the wire connecter,then the reverse of what you do with the new one.
remove two small screws and slide the dishwasher out, lean it back and see where the water was leaking out. turn of the water remove water supply line and remove the water supply valve. then went to partselect.com and ordered new valve. the dishwasher is now like new for only $21.86 and UPS left the valve at my door in about 4 days::::LIFE IS GOOD
*Shut off power to dishwasher at circuit breaker (hot water supply had already been shut off under sink since inlet valve was broken and was allowing water to run into washer nonstop)*Removed front lower panel from dishwasher*Removed valve assembly from dishwasher frame*Disconnected wiring harness from valve*Disconnected incoming water line from valve*Disconnected outgoing flexible water line from valve*Installed new valve in reverse orderIt was a pretty easy installation other than the small work area under the dishwasher.
Turn the water off to the dishwasher. Loosen water supply connector w/ crescent or sized wrench. Remove bracket srews from water inlet. Remove spring clip from discharge hose, remove hose from discharge nipple. Replace with new part in reverse order.
Shut off water, unpluggewd appliance, removed two screws holding part in place. Removed water supply hose from part to Washer, remover water supply from source to part. Reversed steps with new part. DONE! I'm not handy at all it was mostly luck diagnosing problem.
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.
