Regarding a Kenmore Dishwasher 665.13123k701 We recently

Resolved Question:

Regarding a Kenmore Dishwasher 665.13123k701:

We recently had an artesian well drilled and a good bit of sediment came through our plumbing. Consequently, our dishwasher started acting up and began to stop mid-cycle, soap remaining in the dispenser. After a couple tries to "rewash", the machine started to make a terrible noise (as if some metal is grinding to a position) when first started and will not proceed with the wash. Is this a possible result from excess sediment in our water? And is there a filter that's accessible that's similar to a faucet aerator that may simply be clogged? I am relatively handy and would like to try to address this if possible, but wondering if it is something a tech will need to fix.

you will need to replace the water inlet valve in this, these get clogged easy and its not opening, these cant be cleaned they need to be replaced , as far as the noise with the pump running and no water this can make a lot of noise, first try putting a couple of gallons of water in by hand and then turn it on see if the noise goes away , Part 3310let me know when you put the water in if it quites down if not we will need to look into other possibilities for that, thanks Bryan

Thanks. Where is the water inlet valve located, and where can I purchase one for this unit? Price? Also, once this is replaced, wouldn't that allow the water to flow so I would not have to "hand-fill" the machine tub with H2O?

Thanks,
Pete
