Re: water inlet valve Kenmore dishwasher
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.
Have a portable kenmore dishwasher model 6651772200 which is not letting much water in...checked the floater valve and found it just sitting there but won't thread or snap into place or anything? Cleaned the residue from shaft of floater and it seemed to increase water intake but not as much as it should, should a new part snap into place?..there's no screw assembly on this part, or am I totally off base trying to figure out what the problem is? Many thanks

Most likely the hot water temperature is the problem. If you have a separate hot water inlet check that the water temperature is ok. But if you only have a single cold water inlet then the heater inside dishwasher may be faulty. Check if the dishwasher is still cold when you terminate the cycle.
Heater is part 13 in this diagram.
It is likely the water pressure is too high for the dishwasher. Can you check if the setting has not shifted to Low pressure. Try to run the dishwasher with mains tap feeding water inlet to a lower setting.
Without a brand and model number, here is my best thoughts on what to check; 1) Was the shut off valve for water going to the dishwasher turned on after new faucet install? Is it turned on now? 2) Is water getting to the dishwasher water inlet control valve? 3) If water is getting to the water inlet control valve, unplug the dishwasher and check the solenoid to see if it is shorted. Unplug the solenoid. Using an ohm meter, check for 500-1000 ohms resistance. If there is no resistance, it is most likely shorted and needs to be replaced.
Hello, If the problem you're experiencing is that after the cycle is done the tub is a dry.Yet within a few days their is water in the tub without you running it? The problem is going to be the water inlet valve is seeping wate rand not fully closing. To fix that the water inlet valve will need to be replaced. If that describes what your experiencing the replacment part for water inlet valve is part# 99001359
it could be

I hope i have been able to help you fix your dishwasher,
Dishwasher is not filling in, you'll need to check for the water inlet valve,
the filter screen and the float switch/assembly. Also check for the float
assembly inside the dishwasher. When water is filling your dishwasher, a float
rises along with it. As the float reaches a certain threshold level, it
shuts off the flow of water, thereby preventing a leak. Sometimes the float can
get stuck in the wrong position in your dishwasher, and it can prevent your
dishwasher from filling. Sometimes it can happen due to float valve and on
other occasions due to float switch. Inspect the water hose coming to the
dishwasher for any blockages.
If these are fine then it's due to Water Inlet Valve. Use a multimeter and
check for the continuity on inlet valve. If you don't get any value on the
multimeter then you'll need to replace the water inlet valve assembly. Hope
this helps... Please post back for any further assistance. Daniel
If you have already checked the water line for clogs and its clean then its the water inlet valve thats causing this problem. Please try to clean the inlet screen for any clogs and hope you understand if cleaning won't solve the issue then recommended repair is water inlet valve replacement. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.
Two things to check. First see if anything is holding up the float inside the tub. Located on the bottom right if I remember correctly. I had a fork fall off the rack and do the exact same thing by getting lodged under the float. Second, if there was work done on the plumbing, some debrs may have gotten into the line and clogged things at the inlet valve. You may have water flowing through the inlet line, but maybe clogged at the valve. Need to take that off and check. While you are down there run the dishwasher through a cycle and test voltage at that valve. Also could be the valve or the control board.
The water-inlet valve lets water enter the machine. First Check to see if the valve is getting water. Make sure it’s not clogged. There is a screen on the inside of the valve, this sometimes gets clogged up with debris. Check to see if you get power to valve when unit is put into operation may take a couple minutes to start a fill. If you have power and it’s not clogged up replace the valve .If you have no power to the water inlet valve check float switch. This can be done by checking the continuity. There is a video of this at www.appliancehelponline.com/servicemanual.html this will walk you checking the water inlet valve and the float switch. It may be a different model but the testing procedure will be the same. You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations for most
First you should remove the hoses and clean the screens in the ends of the hose, some hoses have screens in both ends. While the hoses are removed look inside the water inlet valve there should be a screen in there also remove and clean the screen out.Some screens will not be removable so you will need to clean in place or remove the water inlet valve. If all is clear you will need to check the solenoidson the water inlet valve for power.If the solenoid has power when put ina fill cycle and no water eneters your washer you will need to replace the water inlet valve. Most water inlet valves must be replaced as a unit, so if one solenoid fails you replace the whole valve assembly. These are inexpensive and easy to replace. There is a video at www.appliancehelponline.com/servicemanual.html that will walk you thru the testing procedure. It may be a different model but the testing will be the same. If you need help disassembling there are also videos of disassembling most styles your is a whirlpool style. You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations of your specific model.
