Sorry to sound obvious, but you will have pull the dishwasher out to get to it, just follow the hose into the inlet valve unit, they are located under the unit at the back.

Check water inlet valve

Water temperature is a key element in achieving clean dishes. A dishwasher's heating element is not designed to heat the water that enters it. Rather, the heating element is designed to maintain the heat of the water that enters the dishwasher. Its a good idea to run the hot water in your sink for a couple of minutes before you run the dishwasher. Just to make sure the water is nice and hot before it enters the dishwasher. If the water is unable to stay hot, it can adversely affect your dishwasher's cleaning ability.


There is a filter in your dishwasher. Its function is to keep large particles of food and foreign objects away from the pump.

If the filter or grate is clogged or blocked with debris, it may interfere with the normal functioning of your dishwasher

How do I find and remove the water inlet valve in a Maytag MDB-9 dishwasher?


CLICK HERE for a representation of the part in question.
CLICK HERE for an expanded parts diagram (#1)

1. Shut off the water and remove the lower access/kick panels.
2. Then disconnect the two wires from the inlet valve terminals - note which one goes to which terminal
3. Using an open end wrench loosen and disconnect the water supply line.
4. Remove the two screws securing the valve assembly to the inside wall of the dishwasher
5. Loosen the clamp on the water outlet line and slide off the hose.

Installation is pretty much the same in reverse.
Sometimes the valve assembly comes with the wire terminals oriented in a different direction than what you may find when you take yours off. If it won't work for you, remove the four screws that hold the electrical side of the inlet valve and rotate it to the needed position.
Make sure when putting it back together that you tighten the screws evenly to prevent leaks.

The dishwasher will not fill with water what can i


The water-inlet valve lets water enter the machine. First Check to see if the valve is getting water. Make sure it’s not clogged. There is a screen on the inside of the valve, this sometimes gets clogged up with debris. Check to see if you get power to valve when unit is put into operation may take a couple minutes to start a fill. If you have power and it’s not clogged up replace the valve .If you have no power to the water inlet valve check float switch. This can be done by checking the continuity. There is a video of this at www.appliancehelponline.com/servicemanual.html this will walk you checking the water inlet valve and the float switch. It may be a different model but the testing procedure will be the same. You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations for most models. All parts come with installation instructions.

My Zanussi ZDF231 dishwasher does not rinse properly and I always have to run it twice to clear the silt from the top tray items


Check inside the diswasher to make sure that the bottom screen is clear of any debris. If clear on the last rinse cycle add a pot of hot water to the dishwasher and observe to see if your dishes come out cleaner.
If the come out cleaner you are probably not getting enough water into your dishwasher.
Replace your water inlet valve.

GE Quiet Wash 3, top arm does not spin


It sounds like you don't have enough water. Your water inlet valve may be not letting in enough water or the plastic pump inlet screen located on the bottom of your dishwasher had something blocking it.
  1. Check to see if there is something blocking the plastic screen on the bottom of your dishwasher.
  2. When your dishwasher is in the final cycle add a pot of hot water to the dishwasher and see if your dishes come out cleaner.
If the dishes come out cleaner you may need a new water inlet valve.

No water in dishwasher?


Hello, your problem is going to be with the inlet valve, there is a solonied on top of the valve that has shorted out, the way to test this diagnosis is remove the panel at the bottom of the dish washer..locate the inlet valve normally on the front left under the washer, remove the 2 wires from the valve (being sure to cut the power off to the dishwasher while you do this step) using a volt meter isert the probes into the connectors on the wire then turn power back on, now run a wash..after a minute or so you should see 110v on the volt meter...if this happens your valve is bad you will have to pull the dish washer out and replace the valve. Good Luck!!! If you have any other questions or concerns please feel free to comment again. Mike

My Hotpoint Aquarius diswasher won't dissolve the washing tablets


It sounds like you have a water supply issue. If you are on well water the screen in the water valve may be clogged. You can access this, remove it and clean it on most dishwashers. It is located in the valve where the water hooks up to the unit.

Dishwasher does not clean dishes, soap does not fully go away


Water Inlet Valve

A dishwasher's water inlet valve is its most common part to fail. When your dishes are not being fully cleaned, quite often a faulty water inlet valve is to blame. Test your dishwasher's water inlet valve, and if it is no longer functioning as it should, you will have to replace it.
Heating Element

Water temperature is a key element in achieving clean dishes. A dishwasher's heating element is not designed to heat the water that enters it. Rather, the heating element is designed to maintain the heat of the water that enters the dishwasher. Its a good idea to run the hot water in your sink for a couple of minutes before you run the dishwasher. Just to make sure the water is nice and hot before it enters the dishwasher. If the water is unable to stay hot, it can adversely affect your dishwasher's cleaning ability.
Filter/Drain Grate

There is a filter in your dishwasher. Its function is to keep large particles of food and foreign objects away from the pump. Many of the newly-manufactured dishwashers have self-cleaning filters, and routine cleaning isn't a concern. However, some other dishw ashers need to have the filter removed and cleaned regularly. If the filter or grate is clogged or blocked with debris, it may interfere with the normal functioning of your dishwasher. Consult your owner's manual for specific directions for removing your dishwasher's filter and cleaning it.

  • filter

  • . Detergent or Detergent Cup

    It could just be that you aren't using enough soap to completely wash your dishes. Your dishwasher may be designed to dispense soap at two different times during the wash cycle. If you don't fill all of the detergent cups, then the diswasher will lose a cleaning cycle. Also, if you use a gel-type detergent, try switching to a powered kind. Powders tend to dissolve better in hot water. And don't buy in bulk. Detergents are most effective in the first two weeks. After that, they decrease in potency.
    Alternatively, your dishwasher's detergent cup could be defective in some way. It is possible that it is gunked up full of built up detergent, and a thorough cleaning may be enough to get it working again. If that doesn't do the trick, you probably need to replace the entire detergent cup assembly. If your cup isn't even opening, My dishwasher detergent cup won't open.

    Cycle Selector Switch
    Sometimes a dishwasher's cycle selector switch is the reason why dishes are not coming completely clean. Test your selector switch to determine whether or not it has become defective. If it has, replace it.

    Dishes not clean


    If your dishwasher is cleaning poorly, check these:

    Water-inlet valve
    Internal filters
    Drain valve
    Spray arms
    Water temperature
    Detergent cup
    Water-inlet valve Most cleaning problems are caused by the dishwasher not getting enough wash water, so the water-inlet valve is often to blame. This valve is usually at the bottom left or right of the dishwasher, behind the lower access panel. It's the device with the main water line from the house, a rubber tube to the dishwasher, and two wires attached to it.

    When a water-inlet valve is defective, you may hear the sound that's usually referred to as "water hammer." If the water-inlet valve is defective, you need to completely replace it.

    Dishwasher Water Inlet Valve Replacement

    Be sure to read and understand any instructions that come with the new water inlet valve.

    Tools required:

    Adjustable wrench

    Multi-Screwdriver

    Pliers
