Question about Kenmore 24 in. 15689 Built-in Dishwasher
I start the normal, or anyother, cycle and do not get power to the main water valve. 20+ seconds later, the circulation pump comes on with no water to circulate. Is there a relay or fuse in this circuit? Where do I look?
I'm no expert, but I recently had a fill valve replaced. There is a float switch at the bottom of most dishwashers. Its purpose is to cut power to the normally-closed electrically-opened fill valve in the event of an overfill. If the float switch "thinks" there is an over-fill situation, it will cut power to valve, closing it. I would start with replacing the float switch or checking to ensure that it is not stuck in the "up" position due to debris.
Again, I'm no expert.

It is possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors or back feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program controller must initiate the INLET valve to open up and allow water to flow into. If this does not happen then the voltage at the inlet valve must be checked or the fault relates to no voltage from the controller. This means the controller is a suspect.
If the water flows then the flow should be good, if not the inlet valve is bad or there is dirt in the filter. Also check the flow at the inlet of the water line. Once the water comes into the system the WATER LEVEL SENSOR - normally a pressure switch- must activate at the preset/chosen level to give the signal to the program controller to switch on the motor. What is most important for the motor to start functioning is that the door switch must be ON when the door is shut or this will be an error for starting the motor for rinse and wash.
Finally after the wash the drain valve will be activated, the water is allowed to come in to rinse and then finally the dry spin with the drain valve/pump activated so as to drain off all the water from the clothes during the spin.
Make sure that a fault in any of the cycle will relate to the specified action, so check the command from the program module and then the executing device be it the valve or motor or pump.
