Question about Dishwashers
Is the valve opening. Since you have a meter set it to the a c voltage range, and check whether you get voltage to solenoid coil where you tested coil resistance. If no voltage reaching check the control board.
For a trial fill water manually to the wash chamber and run the machine. If it runs OK the machine is OK. Otherwise check the float switch/ pressure switch and diagonise further

If the water inlet
valve is fine and it fills with water then the issue seems to be with the float
switch assembly that is bad and should be replaced. Float assembly is found
inside the dishwasher's tub, on the bottom. The water that fills the dishwasher
lifts the float, and when it reaches a certain level, it acts as a trigger for
the float switch. The float triggers the float switch to shut off, thereby
shutting off the flow of water into the dishwasher. A defective switch may
interfere with dishwasher's filling and/or draining ability. Use voltmeter to
test the switch. Set the device to the ohms setting x 1. Take each probe and
touch them to one switch terminal each. This should produce a reading of either
zero or infinity. Continue to touch the probes to the terminals, and press down
on the switch's button. The reading should change to the opposite extreme. If
the switch fails either of these tests, you should replace it. Hope this helps...please post back for

most common causes of this problem are a defective water inlet valve or
a stuck float switch. The float switch sits under the dish racks and
sends a shut-off signal to the dishwasher when the water level is high
enough. Make sure you only use a Maytag-compatible replacement if you
have to change out your dishwasher's float switch or water inlet valve.
