Hi I'm john I will help you with the problem.

You said the intake valve is on can you hear a hum from the water valve but no water.

I can't hear anything. When you turn on the dishwasher it's quiet until the wash cycle starts, but there is no water in it. We disconnected the hose to the dishwasher and water comes out, but when you connect it to the dishwasher it won't fill. The manual said to check the overflow valve, which I did and it moves freely. That's the only option the manual had.

The problem could be the water valve if the float switch is ok .

To be sure unplug the washer and check the water valve with a meter to see if its open if you don't have a meter take the water valve to your appliance parts store and have it tested if it test bad replace the water valve.

I'm a housewife, so I need a little more detail. If you're talking about the valve that's on the intake pipe, I know that's ok. If you're about one on the machine, where do I find it?
Expert:  John replied 5 years ago.

the water valve is located behind the front bottom panel remove the panel the valve is on the right.

This is the water valve if the solenoid is burnt out you wont get water to enter the unit.
