Question about Kenmore 24 in. 17362 / 17364 / 17369 Built-in Dishwasher
The problem is your water inlet valve.
If you remove the panel at the bottom of the dishwasher you will see either a copper hard pipe, or a flexible steel hose leading into the water inlet valve.
BE SURE TO CUT OFF THE WATER SUPPLY. It is probably located under the kitchen sink- just follow the water line until you see a cutoff handle.
Now (or first, if you prefer) cut off the power to the dishwasher, or if possible, unplug it. The valve is activated by an electromagnet (called a solenoid)- carefully remove the plug from the side of the solenoid (its best to use pliers so that you don't accidentally yank the wires out of the plug) on the valve.
Now, loosen the nut that connects the water line to the valve (a small adjustable wrench works best, but it's a tight space, so be patient.) disconnect the water supply hose and remove the valve.
Check and see if the screen (just inside where the water supply line connects to the valve) is clogged with limescale. If it is, you can clean it out fairly well with CLR or Limeaway, and that might fix your problem. If it doesn't you can order a new one online, or take it to an appliance parts store if there is one in your area. They are pretty common. If you do order it online, be sure to look it up using the model number of your unit (usually on a sticker on the inside of the door. Different models might use sightly diffferent valves depending on where under the machine they are attached.

are noticing that the dishes are not clean, then there are a few things to
check for. Check the soap powder if it's kept in a dry environment. Also try
replacing the powder with something like a gel or liquid. Next thing to check
for is the water pressure and fill valve. Check if the water is filling in and
the spray arms are throwing the water with enough pressure. Try and listen to
the sound if you hear a proper spraying action sound.
seems as a low water pressure then check the fill valve. Now, check if
dishwasher is draining the water or not. While the dishwasher is working check
whether the dishwasher is draining and there is not much left out water after
the cycle is complete. Try cleaning the spray arm with a soft brush. The water
temperature plays a major role in cleaning of dishes. The temp should be
between 125 and 150 F for dishwasher to clean the dishes. Hope this helps...
