Have you checked the little screen that's in the water valve solenoid?
I have not...please clarify so I understand where the part is located for me to diassemble to check. thanks
You usually just have to go buy a new one meaning the water valve solenoid; these are not serviced. If it is clogged then that will be your problem. You know where the main water line goes to and hooks to the dishwasher that is the water valve solenoid I'm talking about. Check that before we go any further. Make sure the power is off going to the machine by switching it off at the breaker.
I'm working on it it just takes time.
No problem on timing- How will I be able to determine if the solenoid needs to be replaced? Will I need to disassemble in order to inspect?
You should be able to take the waterline off and possibly take the wiring harness off that just clips on it. Then take the screw out and you should be able to take it out then just look into it. Use a flashlight if you have to. You will see if its clogged or not.
I would like to work on this to be able to accept payment. In case there is another issue...will you give me about 10 minutes to work on this then reply. Sounds pretty simple, for the most part.
You will need to remove the water line there should be a nut that you just unscrew then the water line should come out after you take off that nut.
Here go to the bottom of this page and watch this video.
Waterline is off. Now looking at 4 nuts on plate waterline is attached. On nut has a wire that runs back to the wiring harness which is a part of the selenoid unit. You are advising taking all 4 nuts that secure the brass where the waterline was attached?
Also, I have now successfully removed entire solenoid and am inspecting. I will view video.
Ok, have you ever heard of that product called dishwasher magic?
No not at all its a cleaning agent.
Do you know that there is a filter in this?
I think there are 2 of them in there but to take the sprayer out there should be 2 clips just unclip them and the sprayer should pull right out there you will be able to see the filters check it out if there dirty clean them the put back and give it a try. Here's a diagram for you. There are parts for this machine.
I removed #60-the solenoid- have dissassembled inspected and reassembled. There is no apparent wear. Is this the only origin for the symptoms I have described?
There are no filters; I have completely disassembled and reassembled. The plastic parts appear to have holes designed to filter. Not sure at this point what the solution to this problem is.
Baskets? No not that these filters are under the bottom spinner. This is what I posted earlier that is what you need to look at.

Here it is here there's a video that goes with this to check it out. Look near the bottom for the video.
William, after disassembly of the water inlet, I have reassembled everyting and I think I may have to get another dishwasher instead of fixing this one. We did not identify the problem at this point. Perhaps using an ohm meter to check the motor would be next step before replacing it as you are discussing. Thank you for trying to help me.
Apparently it is working but its not enough to do the job. Your gonna get proper readings. That's a lot of money for that pump it would be better to get a new d/w. Good luck sir it was nice working with you have a good evening.
Thank you, William and you as well! Seek God first in everything and He will surely direct your path and make them straight.
That's true! thanks.
