The wires go to the 2 different parts. One wire comes from the float switch which is in the front right corner of the dishwasher below the tub. This cuts out the power to the valve if the float is in the up position because the dishwasher thinks the water level is already too high. The other wire goes directly up into the door and to the main control board. So if your solenoid isn't getting power then you'd need to make sure the float switch was good and the float wasn't stuck in the up position. If that all checks good then replace the control board.
