yes, thank you. I have never had this problem when pressing the start button. Usually within a minute I hear the water begin to fill/run and the cycle starts as normal. All I hear now when pressing start is a faint humming sound. No water.
My fault, I forgot to send the link. I am fairly certain. If you start a cycle and just hear a hum and no water is entering, this tells me that power is going to the valve, but it is not opening to allow water in.
I replaced water valve as instructed. Once the new one was installed I atttempted to run dishwasher. Unit began to fill with water for a few seconds, stopped and now has the same issue as before. I uninstalled the new valve, retraced my steps and reinstalled. Still nothing. Water supply line is working and sending water to the valve. Power is working as unit still makes humming sound without filling with water.
I do not want to incurr another $30 charge by asking follow up questions. Will I be charged? If so I do not wish to continue your service.
Hi Jason. I disconnected the air gap at the sink along with the disposal hose and there was no blockage. I'm not sure if I should be able to blow through the dishwasher hose that connects to the air gap but I could not. I did not disconnect at the dishwasher as it appears to be in the rear/underneath of the unit. There is a little standing water in the unit. I tried to siphon it and got some water out. When I run the unit I just get the same "humming" sound and no water flow into it. Any suggestions?

the valve is brand new as I replaced the old one. Are you thinking the new one may need to be replaced as well? If pressure is dropping what is the fix?
Yes. I did that early on when replacing the valve. The supply line had no blockage and seemed to have adequate flow for what it does. So another valve perhaps?
