Dishwasher not washing well

I turned off the CB for the DW and the water supply to the DW.
I disconnected the electrical connections on the water inlet valve. I then removed the panels from the lower part of the dishwasher, I pulled the water inlet line off and then the water return line off.

I replaced the valve. The only problem I ran into is that the inlet portion required a new brass "ell" - the one that was on the old piece would have of course been ok, however, it was solidly in place in the old water inlet valve

the only other issue, and one that would probably be commonly encountered - when I first went to turn off the water supply to the DW, the valve leaked - I was fortunate to be able to take the valve apart, clean it and put it back in place

Water inlet valve broken

First I removed two lower panels at bottom of dishwasher beneath the loading door using nut drivers. There had been a problem in that the dishwasher was not filling with water during any of the cycle. I closed the water supply. I removed the old water inlet valve completely using pliars to open the hose clamp at the outlet anbd remove the hose. Then used a I/2 "" wrench to remove the copper inlet line. Then I used a screw driver to remove the inlet valve mounting screws. I put the valve in my garage vise to remove the pipe fitting. Everything was reusable on the new valve. I just cracked opened the water supply to make sure water pressure was available to the valve inlet side and reassembled everything. Started the dishwasher and problem solved.

Poor wash - insufficient water in rinse and wash cycles

Fairly simple to replace the valve. Water input side was a rubber hose that required pliers to squeeze the ring seal and slide it down the hose. Copper pipe on the output side was attached with a 3/8 compression fitting.

I did need to transfer a brass elbow from the old part to the new one.

CustomerScott from Lake Forest CA

Dishes and glasses were not clean - soap residue

Finally listened to advice of others online and decided to replace inlet valve. Btw, the problem is NOT the inlet screen. It was completely clean in my case. Issue is with internal seals that swell over time and restrict flow leading to low water level.

Unplugged unit, removed lower front panel (two screws on outside upper corners), undid compression fitting on inlet supply line, removed two screws holding valve bracket to frame, disconnected electrical connections to valve, used pliers to compress hose clamp to remove valve outlet hose, used adjustable wrench and some elbow grease to remove small inlet elbow (its on tight!) from valve inlet, put teflon tape on elbow threads to reinstall on new valve, reverse removal instructions to put everything back. All done! MUCH cleaner dishes!

Dishes not getting clean.

I was trying to avoid having to buy a new dishwasher before the holidays. I went on YouTube and found the dirty dishes may mean bad water inlet valve. So, I used my meter to see if the valve was bad and sure enough it was. I ordered the part from Part Select. Once I received the part I removed the old one. Be sure to put a towel down to catch the excess water. The bracket that came with the new prt was a different configuration, but i swapped the new with old and it worked. I addition to the valve being bad the dishwasher upper and lower arms were somewhat clogged. I looked online again and followed YouTube instructions to clean. The dishwasher is cleaning like it is new. I would recommend to anyone doing work on their dishwasher to use part select and thoroughly clean the upper and lower arm.
