Question about Kenmore 24 in. 16039 Built-in Dishwasher
Hi. I will assume that by "running" you are referring to the pump motor turning on, but there is no water entering the unit. If you are really lucky, you may just have a stuck float switch actuator. Look for a mushroom style float in the tub basin, lift up gently and release it, you should hear a very light, but distinct clicking sound as the switch is released. If that sounds alright, move on.
I would check things out in this order.
1: Shut off water supply to the dishwasher and remove the bottom panel.
2: Disconnect water supply from inlet valve
3: Using a basin for the water, slowly turn the supply on and verify that you have a good water supply from the house plumbing. If so, continue.
4: Make sure the unit is off, or just have the door popped open, and disconnect the electrical supply from the inlet valve. With a meter set on VAC, turn the dishwasher on, and check for 120VAC between the two wires going to the inlet valve. Make sure to give it a minute, the control may not power the valve immediately. If 120 Volts are present, replace the fill valve. If not, you will want to verify good wire connections back to the control board, and to be sure, test the float switch for continuity. If that also checks out, replace the control board. Let me know what you find if you get a chance.
