Question about Kenmore 15129 Built-in Dishwasher
Dishwasher quit filling with water and I found the solenoid coil open on the inlet water valve. Replaced the coil and checked. The water sonenoid is working now. Water is coming out of an opening near where the water enters the sump. It is an open vent maybe. I don't know. I can see it coming out a plastic opening above the water valve just below the black water hose connection as it bends back down and into the sump.
Your inlet hose probably came loose on the left side of the dishwasher. If you pull the d/w out 6 inch. or so you will see the s-shaped hose going to the inlet port on the tub. Make sure it's not pinched or leaking..Catriver

Did you have this problem before replacing the solenoid coil or it start after ? In case it started after solenoid coil replacement, its look like you did something wrong while assembling it back. Disconnect Dishwasher power cable and close water tap - remove the selenoide coil, clean the valve from scale or other dirt and check that you placed all parts back properly (spring,gasket...). Good luck !!

Tips for a great answer:
When the Dishwasher won't fill you'll need to check for the water inlet hose, the water inlet valve and the float switch assembly. When the water fills 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 the hose is not clogged then check the water inlet valve for any clogs, if the water will not even fill for few seconds then certainly the water inlet valve is bad and should be replaced. You can also use a multimeter to check 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. However, if the valve is fine then the float switch assembly should be replaced. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.
