Fill valve replacement should be fairly simple. Most dishwashers are constructed in a similar manner, so although these steps are generic, it should lead you in the right direction: 1. Remove the lower kick panel right below the dishwasher door. The fill valve should be located in the front of the dishwasher on the left hand side. 2. Turn off the water supply line. 3. Turn off the circuit breaker to the dishwasher or unplug the unit as necessary to secure power. 4. Carefully remove the two wire connectors going to the fill valve solenoid. These wires are delicate, so be careful with them. 5. Leave the fill valve attached to the mounting plate in order to loosen the supply line. Once you have the supply line loosened you can remove the valve from the mounting plate by removing either one or two screws. 6. With the supply line disconnected, wires removed and the valve removed from the mounting plate, you can now remove the secondary water line that goes into the wash tub. It is usually behind the valve and easier to access if you can pull the valve out far enough the reach it. 7. Make sure you put teflon on all your threads BEFORE you re-install. 8. Installation is in the reverse of what I just explained to you. You should not have to remove the dishwasher from under the counter, but you can if it makes access easier. It's that easy. Just make sure you check your water lines for leaks BEFORE re-installing the kick plate. And, make sure you reconnect the wires properly. Good luck. I hope this helps you.

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 it just started the water inlet is probably defective. this can be obtained at your local hdwre. store. be carefull these oarta are brass and are really soft. pull the dish washer out and tip it up or remove it, dont try to change it where it is.
