Question about Kenmore 24032\24036 Top Load Washer

I TO THINK YOU HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THE DOOR SWITCH. BUT DID YOU CHECK THE WATERINLET LINES WHERE THE HOSES HOOK UP TO THE WASHER? THEY HAVE SCREENS THAT CAN GET TOTALY CLUGGED. IF THEY ARE CLEAN WITH OLD TOOTHBRUSH.

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.

Remove the 3 screws at the back of the machine that hold the top on. pull back on the top and lift the top off. Remove the hose from the inlet valve and remove the screw that holds the inlet valve.

To access the pump drain filter, follow the instructions in the link provided:
It is recommended by the manufacturer that if the pump still does not operate correctly after cleaning, to replace it. It does not take much to damage the motor and impeller of these small drain pumps.
The water fill problem is usually caused by a water inlet valve that is not shutting off properly. To access the fill valve solenoids follow these steps:
1. Unplug the washer.
2. Remove the top panel of the washer by removing the three screws that hold the panel in place in the rear of the washer. With the screws removed, the panel will slide back, and then off.
3. The inlet valve is located at the left rear of the washer (as viewed from the front). This is where the fill hoses attach.
4. A resistance reading of the valve solenoids should be between 750 and 850 ohms.
If you live in an area that has hard water, or if you use well water it is common for sediment and/or deposits to accumulate in the water inlet valve and cause problems with either filling or shutting off. you can attempt to remove the valve and clean it to see if this will correct the problem. Use white distilled vinegar to submerge the plastic portion of the valve in. DO NOT submerge the electrical contacts. Sometimes soaking in vinegar will dissolve and remove hard water deposits and sediment. If you wish to simply replace the valve, follow these steps:
1. Leave washer unplugged and remove electric connections to inlet valve.
2. Shut off water supply and remove fill hoses from the back of the washer.
3. Remove the dispenser hose from the inlet valve and remove mounting screw(s).
4. Install replacement valve in the reverse order of the steps provided.
Replacement parts can be purchased on line at searspartsdirect.com, repairclinic.com, or appliancepartspros.com. All three sites have great service and offer competitive pricing. I would recommend checking with all three sites for the best price. Use your model number to initiate your search.

Yes, the only other thing I would do and you may have done this is to put the hose directly over in the washer tub and turn the water on to check the flow. If that's good then replace the water valve.

To get into the machine read THIS first.After you have accessed the innards then you can easily remove and check the water valve. . Hook the water up to the valve. Get a suicide cord and apply 120 vac to each of the coils and see if they open.

If the washer won't fill you'll need to check for the water
inlet hose, the water inlet valve and the pressure/water level switch assembly.
Inspect the inlet hose coming to the washer for any blockages. If the hose is
not clogged then check the water inlet valve for any clogs, if the water will
not even fill for few seconds then certainly the water inlet valve is bad and
should be replaced. You can also use a multimeter to check continuity on inlet
valve. If you don't get any value on the multimeter then you'll need to replace
the water inlet valve assembly. However, if the valve is fine then the
pressure/water level switch assembly should be replaced. Hope this helps...
