I found the wiring diagram where you said it would be. I checked the wiring and it looks correct. Do you have any suggestions on what I should do next?
It appears the tub won't fill. The dishwasher comes on. The timer advances, but then the timer stops advancing about 40 seconds in. I think it's still trying to drain and never gets to the next step of filling. If I push QUICK WASH and RINSE & HOLD at the same time to reset the program cycle, the timer will cycle all the way through back to the beginning.
If I then hit normal wash and start it again, the timer again appears to hang up about 40 seconds in.
Is there a way to test the valve? The dishwasher was working fine a few days ago. Before I replaced the wiring harness, I could jiggle the wiring harness so the black wire made contact and the machine would come on and run through it's cycle normally. Is there a reason replacing the wiring harness would have affected the valve or am I just unlucky?
When I just went back to the dishwasher I realized I misspoke. The timer is moving forward slowly, The tub just isn't filling. At least not filling quickly. There's some water in the bottom of the tub, but not nearly up to the heating coil. If I manually add water, it circulates around.
I can test the valve for 120 volts. At what point in the cycle should I test it? I'm resetting the program now.
No, I didn't remove the dishwasher, and I didn't turn it on it's side. I forced it to reset the cycle and it completely drains.
With power off, the resistance at the water inlet is about 1000 ohms.
When the cycle starts, there's about 20 volt at the water inlet. It goes up to 120 volts about 1 minute in. I found a timing chart for this dishwasher online. It looks like voltage goes to the inlet when it should.
When there is voltage to the pump, though, there doesn't appear to be water entering the dishwasher. If if flip the door catch and open the door with the dishwasher on, there isn't any water coming down from above and there's just the slightest spurts of water coming up from the lower spray arm (which is stationary when I look in)
OK. I'll order the valve and replace it. Thanks for your help
