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.

It's quite possible. First see the Sears parts list for your washer with diagrams of all major parts.
Then see the Whirlpool / Kenmore Service manual for these washers and check the troubleshooting section.

Testimonial: "Thanks! Very helpful."
find the tech sheet and ohm out the valve with a multimeter. or pull off the plug, and connect a multimeter to it. select a cycle, hit start, shut door, wait a few minutes and you should be getting 120VAC out of the plug. if the voltage is there and the no water is entering the machine, faulty valve.
