Dishwasher will not fill with water. Will go through entire cycle. Bone dry inside (other than the detergent that was released and pooled next to the reservoir). Checked with ohm meter the float switch (float itself is unobstructed) and water inlet valve. Both reading properly. Unit is only 3 years old. Perhaps bad inlet valve itself?? makes no noise when starting cycle and no water at all inside. any suggestions?
For model number KDTE254ESS2
Hi Brian, thank you for your question. I would say it might be your valve. Sometimes even if it is electrically testing good, it might be mechanically not working correctly. If it is not that part then the only other part that I would suggest would be your electronic board that might be the issue. I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair.

Hi, i can hear my dishwasher fill and drain and it seems to go through all the cycles. When indicated by the light it is complete and the door is opened there is steam in the unit but the detergent is sitting in a pile on the bottom and the dishes were never washed. This does not change for any of the wash cycle options.
For model number KDTE104EWH0
Hi Aaron, thank you for you question. I might suggest checking your water inlet valve to make sure that enough water is being brought into your appliance. You may also want to make sure the water pressure from your home is good as well. If that is fine you should go on to check for blockages in the filter and tubing of your appliance. Make sure the water is able to flow freely and strongly. I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair.

When it is time for the cycle to drain the water from the dishwasher, sometimes there is very poor flow or possibly none (but sometimes there is pretty good flow). When the flow is poor, it sometimes helps to shake the hoses leading to the sink up and down to increase the flow. I have opened up the bottom of the machine and had all the hoses apart, and everything seems to be clear of blockages. Any ideas?
For model number WDP350PAAW3
Hi Randy, Thank you for your question. If the dishwasher is not draining correctly, there are some parts that you will need to check to see which one is causing the issue. Here is a link from our website that you may reference on what parts to check, https://www.partselect.ca/Models/WDP350PAAW3/Symptoms/Not-draining/ . I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

My machine fills, not sure if all the way or 1/2 way. I can hear it running through cycle but dishes are all dirty.(even bottom ones) I checked for debris in the bottom screen and washing arms. Suggestions?
For model number WDF520PADB7
Hello Kirsten, Thank you for the question. If the tub is not filling up to the bottom of the element, there is not enough water to circulate and clean properly. We suggest checking the Water Inlet Valve. We hope this helps!

How to check water inlet valve solenoid. Should the solenoid contact must have a continuity? Please let me now how to properly check the water inlet valve. Thanks
For model number MDBH969AWW5
Hi Mohammad, Thank you for your question. Before performing this test, unplug the dishwasher from the electrical outlet and turn the water off. With a multimeter, set the device to the ohms setting x 1. Touch each of the meter's probes to a terminal. If you receive a reading of infinity, it means the valve's solenoid is faulty and the valve needs to be replaced. If your valve has two solenoids (four terminals), test the second pair of terminals in the same manner. If either pair of terminals receives a result of infinity, replace the water inlet valve. We hope this helps! If you have any questions, please let us know.

The washer start light stays on for about 1min. When pushed than goes off and no water starts to come in, some broken glass got in to the pump, i removed that and the drain ran but now washer does not fill. I smelled hot wires the last time i ran it. Board ?

The tub gets some water and opens door for detergent but does not wash .
For model number 665.13263K114
Hello Magda, Thank you for your question. if the tub is only getting some water and not filling completely, its likely the inlet valve under part PS12578165 that would need to be replaced. If its filling up fine, but it isn't cleaning or washing properly, its likely the filter under part PS11759673 that would need to be replaced instead. We hope this helps!

We replaced the water inlet valve on our dishwasher. That wasn’t the problem. We get water to the top spinners but it seems not enough pressure to spray water. They aren’t clogged. Next suggestion? Thank you.

We replaced the water inlet valve, but that did not help. We are getting water to the upper arm (dribbling out) but there is not enough to actually rotate the spray arm. What should i check next? Screen at the bottom is empty & the spray arm is not clogged at all.
For model number wdf520padb7
Hi Kirsten, Thank you for your question. If water is not coming out of the upper arm and you have already replaced the water inlet valve, it may be clogged and you need to clean it. You can use a pin to clean any deposits that have formed in the holes of the spray arm and soak it in warm water and vinegar. You will also need to check the pump and motor assembly to see if it is working correctly. We hope this helps! Good luck with the repair!

    The Inlet Valve cracked from the severe cold weather we had in Chicago area.
    Removing and installing the new part was fairly simple. We removed the water hose first since it is the easiest to see. We then removed the screw holding the part to the metal frame. We slid out the part out of the holder to remove the black hose and electric plug (it is like the old phone jacks). After it was completely off we plugged in the electric to the new part which was very easy since it can only go in one way. We slid the new part in place and attached the black hose. We attached the piece to the frame with the one screw and last we attached the gold (garden hose) connection. We turned on the water to look for any leaks then turned the power on and ran it through a partial rinse to be sure there were no leaks.

    clean light blinked 4 times and repeated this over and over
    I took the valve off and actually hooked 110 volts to the vale and tried to blow through it and it would not let air pass through it. I replaced the the new valve in about 15 minutes and it works fine

    Dishwasher wasn’t getting water.
    I located the water inlet valve underneath. After moving the dishwasher out from the cabinet, I tilted it . Then I disconnected the black hose with the pliers . Using the adjustable wrench I unscrewed the water feed to the valve . I then unscrewed the valve from the frame and disconnected the wire plug by unlocking and slipping it away from the valve. To install I did all this in reverse.

    Dishwasher stopped filling
    based on advice here, concluded the problem was likely that the part "Valve-Inlt" was defective. Our dishwasher intake line is copper and had already developed a partial kink from sometime in the past, so I had to be careful. The final connection to the new part had to happen in place: very close to the floor and underneath, because I didn’t want to stress the copper line. Plus, the shutoff was defective, and it was always leaking while I connected. Awkward. As I was threading on, it started to look like it might be cross-threaded, so I stopped and reversed. Slid the washer back out and disconnected the drain line so I could tip the dishwasher u and inspect. It was going on cross-threaded. Not hard to happen on a metal to a plastic connection. To solve, I carefully made very small bends in the copper inlet line until when it would later be brought up underneath to connect to the inlet valve, it would be as perfectly aligned as possible. This worked. As I tightened, it went a little easier and the leak stopped. A good moment. Tightened a bit more, but didn’t want to overdo it as that can cause other problems. Now the moment of truth: let’s run it. DISHWASHER WORKED AGAIN. Runs fine now and we are glad to have it back. Was satisfying I could do this on my own. The advice and guides here made that possible. Thank you.

    Dishwasher would not fill with water
    The water valve float lever was broke. So I replaced that and the water level switch. Probably didn’t have to replace switch. Very easy!!
