Okay handy Mike,
First of all, is this a new dishwasher? Or, is it a used one? The reason I ask is because there should be a warranty with a new appliance and you should not have to worry, or have to pay for, any repairs.
The problem you are experiencing could very well be a water inlet valve problem (good assessment), but may also be something more simple. The dishwasher has a float inside the tub that is supposed to shut the water off, when it reaches the appropriate fill level. Check the float to make sure it moves up and down and that you can hear the switch "clicking". Sometimes small items get stuck under the float and will keep in the up (or shut off position).
For some helpful part locator drawings refer to searspartsdirect.com and type in your model number. An illustration of the water inlet valve can be found under the "Frame" heading in the next page as item number 24 (part number 154195301). The float and float switch can be found under the "Tub" heading as items number 13 (part number 154144301) and 24 (part number 5300809863), respectively.
If you require further assistance, please let me know. I hope its something simple and you don't require parts. But, if you do, you know where you can get them. If you do not wish to order on line, use the part numbers provided and go to your nearest appliance parts retailer. I hope this helps you. Good Luck.

If the washer does not shut off when filling, the pressure switch is usually the culprit. The following link explains:
In many cases, the only problem is the air hose comes loose from the switch, or is cracked or punctured somewhere. If the air hose is intact, and the electrical connections are good (no broken, loose, or corroded wires), then I would recommend replacing the switch. The part is available at searspartsdirect.com. Just go to the website and type in the model number you have provided and go to the "Washer/Dryer Control Panel" heading for itme number 13 (part #3952465). I hope this helps you. Please let me know if you require additional assistance.

SOURCE: won't stop filling with water
Does the water continue to run when the washer is unplugged from power? If it does, then there is something stuck in the inlet valve that is keeping it open. Could be the result of mineral deposits. If the water stops when unplugged then the water limit switch is defective. Unlikely since the water still flows when control knob is in off position.

If it fills with water and starts the cycle and
the water keeps running in then your water inlet valve on the back where the
water supply comes in is sticking. It needs replacing. The cold side can fail independently of the hot side.
