This water inlet valve should be located behind the lower kickplate panel in either the right or left corner. The attaching solenoid on the valve open and close according to the desired amount of water needed.
This part works with the following brands: GE, Hotpoint & Kenmore.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
You'll need to remove the front toe kick and (if installed, the GE Profile baffling for additional silencing action). You will need to disconnect the right wire connection to access the right screw (and may need to use a flat head screwdriver). You can then remove the 2 screws that hold the Valve Water Inlet on. You will then need to loosen and the hose clamp that attaches the water line to the Valve Water Inlet. You may need to force it undone since the rubber connection is pretty secure around the water tube inlet. Disconnect the plastic wire housing from the Valve Water Inlet and you should now have the Valve Water Inlet disconnected.Reverse the order and reconnect everything and you should be good to go! Double-check for any leaks prior to pushing everything back in :)

Part was an exact match. Make sure to use plumber's tape on all threads. Had to really tighten fittings to prevent leaks. Screws are a little difficult to get to. Test for leaks first, before final installation.
Removed the wire clip, then removed two screws on mounting bracket. Then disconected the hose. Removed the brass elbow. Then reversed these steps and I was done.
First of all the part I ordered came a lot sooner than expected.I thought it would take 5 to 10 days.I ordered it on a Tuesday and it was at my door on Thursday.The part was difficult to take off as this was the first time I attempted this.When the new part came, I saw that I went to too much trouble to take the old one off.It was installed in about 40 minutes and we were off and running.
Remove Base Access Panel; Removed Valve Mounting Bracket & Valve; Disconnected Wire Connector; Disconnected Supply Line & distribution Hose; Reversed the Process. Piece of Cake; Part was O.E.M.Component Exact Fit; Took Longer to Write this than it took for Fix. Thanks I Will Be Back for other Parts.!
Turn off power and water from dishwasher. Remove Base Access Panel. Remove the upper 2 screws that holds the dishwasher in place. Pull out dishwasher. Locate the valve and remove the 2 screws holding the mounting bracket. (I used a hex Nutdriver to remove the screws) Remove the valve. Disconnect the wire connector. Disconnect water supply. (Place a towel to catch the water) Loosen the hose clamp holding the inlet hose and remove the hose. (I used pliers to loosen the clamp) Remove the elbow from the old valve and reattach to the new valve. (Use teflon tape around the threads) Reverse the Process. Check for leaks. Piece of Cake. Part was an exact fit.
Received part, removed lower panel and shut water and power off to appliance. Used flash light to see under dishwasher, removed the two screws that held part in place. Loosed clamp that held the water tube in place to part. Placed towel down to catch water. Pulled the line out so I could get to the nut that is attached to inlet part. Unhooked the plug after all water was gotten up. The main knuckle that's attached to the pump was on so tight that I took it to my local gas station for an mechanic to unscrew it for me....I have arthritis in my hands. Station is only two mins from me and wasn't a problem for them to do for me. Came back put fresh Teflon tape on joint and reattached it to new part. Attached all hoses and clamps, plugged electrical prongs back in and attached bracket back to body of dishwasher. Turned water on and checked for leaks. Turned power back on and ran a cycle of dishes to wash....all went well. If the knuckle was on so tight the job would have only taken about 40 min at best.
shut off water. removed lower panel disconnected power removed supply hose and outlet hose. disconnected electrical plug from valve. Un bolted valve from frame. removed elbow from valve inlet. installed elbow on new valve using Teflon tape. reinstalled valve to frame. connect hoses + electric plug to new valve. turn water on check for leaks. reconnect power. run dish washer check for leaks & popper operation. reinstall lower panel.
I simply removed the bad part and reversed the process. It was very easy and a 12 year old could do it. Thanks for the online tips and recommendations. You saved me over 400.00 which is what a new unit would run. Plus installation. Many Thanks.
