Water wasn't flowing into the dishwasher

You'll have to put the dishwasher on it's side. The water inlet valve is located in the center on the bottom of the unit. I read that you could access it by pulling the kick plate off. Not on this unit. Once on it's side, Locate the valve. The input is a garden hose type screw connector. Un-screw the inlet hose. Then take a medium phillip screw driver and take out the two mounting screws for the valve. When removed, turn the valve to expose the the water outlet hose. Take a pair of pliers to compress the hose clamp and slide it up on the hose. Then twist and remove the hose. Take the new valve and replace the outlet hose and clamp. Mount the valve with the two screws and replace the inlet hose. Make sure the rubber gasket in the inlet hose is in good shape or you might have a leak. Screw the hose connector down as tight as you can get it and the give it an 1/8 of a turn with the pliers. Don't over tighten. Tip the unit back on it's wheels hook it up and let it fill while checking for leaks.
