How to Test the Inlet Valve

To access the inlet valve remove the lower panel located beneath the door. The panel is usually held in place with two screws either above or below the panel. It may be necessary to first open the door to the dishwasher to reach the screws over the panel, then close the door to remove the panel.

Caution: Please read our safety information before attempting any testing or repairs. Before testing the inlet valve, unplug the dishwasher or shut off the power at the fuse box or breaker to avoid an electrical shock hazard.

The water inlet valve can be identified by the water hoses connected to it. One hose will lead from the valve to the pump/motor assembly in the center of the dishwasher. Check that the hoses are securely connected to the valve and that there are no kinks in the hoses which could restrict water flow.
