Question about Dishwashers
Depending on the type (make/model) of your dishwasher, this sounds like a control problem. There should be in most cases, 120V at the water valve. If it is a touchpad "digital" type, then you may have a main circuit board problem. If it's a "dial" type, the first place I would look are at the connections going to the washer itself and also the connectrions going to the timer. If all is well and good on teh supply side and you're getting 120V, dig a little deeper with these tests...
Nevertheless, unbolt the front panel and tilt it forward to get a better look at it. The 2.5V that you're reading is an indication that the valve is only getting half the circuit. In a digital model, this could be a number of things, but concentrate your search around the relays and the wiring harness. I've seen Kenmores start to burn due to a defect, around parts of the wiring harness. Look for blackening. If you see it, replace the board! Otherwise, a fire could start as a result.
If it is a dial-timer type, does the timer actually "tick" when you set it to turn on the dishwasher? If not, you may be looking at a replacement to fix the problem.
