Question about Kenmore Dishwashers
1.) Check the float switch for continuity
2.) check for a service tech sheet either inside of the toe panel (lower front panel)
or somewhere inside of the bottom or on the side of the unit.
3.)Trace the valve power back to the timer/control
4.) Check for power from control to water valve.
I bet it is the float switch
here is a video for the water valve and float switch click on the link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zv22rpcthy4
Please post results for float switch and if you found the service tech sheet.
I will continue to look for service manaul and or wiring diagram.

The white residue is from the new environmentally safe soap. Check
your soap and see if it is phosphate free soap and that will be your issue. Also
either you have hard water or you're seeing either calcium or lime deposits. You
should use the jet dry for every load. There should never be any suds in a
dishwasher. Do not use liquid dish detergent for the dishwasher.Try running a
load without dishes, using vinegar, or a bottle of Dishwasher Magic. Another
possibility could be you're not getting enough water. The level should be close
to the heater(check your tech sheet to be sure). The water temp should be at
least 140 deg.F (no matter what the box says) Also, use a good brand of
detergent (Cascade) and be sure your wetting Agent dispenser is full. (jet
dry)You should not have to pre-wash your dishes..just scrape them well.The
detergent actually needs some dirty dishes to work properly..fats, protien,
etc. to make up 1 more chemical for the detergent.Another important step is to
run the hot water faucet before running your d/w to "purge" the cold
water out of the line.
