Question about DCS DW-24-SS Built-in Dishwasher
I'm having a problem locating a replacement OEM water inlet valve for my DCS dishwasher (DW-24SS). DCS customer service isn't much help, only answer I get is that's an older model we no longer have parts for it.
I figure these valves all basically do the same thing, so can I just get any ol' water inlet valve?
Thanks in advance!
The short answer is no, all dishwasher valves are not the same. Newer dishwashers use much less water than older ones, and the valves are often ones which allow a lower flow rate (just like newer shower heads with low flow rates to conserve water) so that the timed fill cycle lets in a smaller amount of water. I do not have parts info for DCS, but this is what I would try: Units old enough to have discontinued parts probably did use basically the same water valves back then. Try a GE valve # WD15X93. The mounting may have to be modified, but you could even let the valve hang without mounting it to the dishwasher. (won't hurt a thing) Please don't bother rating this, as anything other than a FixYa will lower my score. Thanks.
