This water inlet valve has attaching solenoids on the valve that open and close according to the desired amount of water needed.
This part works with the following brands: Whirlpool, Admiral, Estate, Inglis, Kenmore, KitchenAid, Roper, Maytag, Crosley, Jenn-Air, Hardwick, Magic Chef, Amana, Caloric & Glenwood.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
First turn off the power and water. Water valve is under the sink. I removed the two lower panels with 5/16 nut driver. I disconnected the valve from the cross member, again with a 5/16 socket. I removed that cross member with the same nut driver. I disconnected the rubber hose using pliers. I unplugged the electrical connector from the valve body. I held the water inlet pipe with a wrench and twisted the valve off with the adjustable pliers. I applied teflon tape to the water inlet pipe and reassembled. Works like new. For the rubber water tube I pulled off the old tube, put some dish soap on the new tube and it slid right on.

Replacing the water inlet valve was as simple as unplugging the dishwasher, turning off the water, removing the dishwasher panels, removing the old water inlet valve by removing the 2 screws holding the valve, and disconnecting from the valve the two-wire clip, the water-in hose, and the water-out hose. I could then reverse the order of these steps to install the new valve.I had initially tore into the dishwasher to determine the problem. This process took me about an hour to determine the problem was the water inlet valve. I also checked the float switch to make sure that was not the problem. So having done all the preliminary foot work, all I needed was a new valve. I also purchased a new brass elbow to go on the new valve (about $2.50).I reconnected the old valve so I could turn the water back on, ordered the new part and waited. Counting the day I ordered the part, it arrived on the 3rd day. Once the new part arrived I had the new part installed in less than 30 minutes.I always hate repairs where plumbing is involved because once you take something apart and put it back together, it usually leaks. Maybe I got lucky this time because nothing leaked once I had it back together.
The water inlet valve SEEMED to be the logical choice of the part that went bad. It was! It was a really easy fix. Undo the bottom front of the dishwasher. Shut off the hot water supply. Unscrew the hot water pipe leading to the valve. Unscrew the 2 screws holding the vlave to the dishwasher. Unclamp the rubber hose on the other side of the valve leading TO the inside of the dishwasher (water outlet side of the valve) And remove the electrical plug on the old valve. Only time consuming part was the need to remove the male/female coppper fitting from the old valve, put it on the new one and reattach the hotwater pipe....don't forget the teflon tape on the threads, the elecrtrical plug, the rubber hose and the front of the case . My wife says it runs like new
FIrst I shut the water and power off. I took 4 screws off bottom panels of dishwasher. Using pliers I move spring clip of the rubber valve. I disangage the hose and disconnected electrical connection ( two wires ) . Then using two open wrenches ( 3/4" and the other probably 13/16" - not sure ) disconnected the copper tubbing. I replaced the valve i reverse order.I used teflon tape for sealing connections . Everything works good now.
Turn off water and power to the dishwasher. Remove kickboard cover to gain access below the door (2 screws). Water inlet valve was removed using a 5/16 nut driver (1 screw). It is located on the front left side of the dishwasher as you face the appliance. My dishwasher did not need to be pulled out from the cabinet, so using an adjustable wrench removed the supply line. Used a pair of pliers to remove spring clamp on the other line. I then removed the two wires from the clips on the side of the valve. Installation is the reverse, the wires can be reversed with no consequence.
removed the two cover in front of the dishwasher then removed the water inlet valve located behind these covers. replaced the old valve with a new valve by connecting the water supply line and the outlet hose going to the dishwasher.
