First move the float up and down. (green arrow) see if it will fill then. No water go to the next step.

Pull the kick plate off and make sure the float is moving the switch up and down. (yellow arrow)

If you still have no water replace the inlet valve (red arrow) The factory part number for that valve is W10219505. That is a factory part number you can shop anywhere with. One place that has it online is located HERE.
That should get it filling for you.

We did a ohms check on the water inlet and it read 1020 on it, if we put water in it manually it moves it around and seems to work
Appliance Technician: Barry G., Home Appliance Technician replied 6 years ago
Great you have a meter. Test the voltage during the fill part of the cycle at the valve. Make sure you set the meter up at 120 volts AC and have the probes inserted into the connector before you turn it on.

can we check the volts from the lines going into we cant get the sticks from the meter into the connector while it is connected
Appliance Technician: Barry G., Home Appliance Technician replied 6 years ago
I am sorry I see I was not clear. You can remove the connector from the valve. Insert the probes into the connector and then turn on the dishwasher.

the valve is gettting 44 volts when it is trying to fill
Appliance Technician: Barry G., Home Appliance Technician replied 6 years ago
Thank you.

I cannot tell but looking closer,,well as close as I can it appears there may be a filter screen in that valve. You may want to check.

if its ready 44 is that good? we checked the screen it the valve and it is fine.
Customer reply replied 6 years ago
are you still there? I am waiting for a response on the last thing I wrote
Appliance Technician: Barry G., Home Appliance Technician replied 6 years ago
I am not sure about the voltage. I have been trying to find a wiring diagram to be able to tell. That valve is not like most so I do not know. Most are 110 volt let me opt out so another person who does have a diagram or direct experience with that valve to help you. Please do not press accept above. When that person helps you be sure to press the accept button for them.

Hi, my name is Peter.

 

You should have 120 volts to the water valve during the fill cycle. Check the float switch in the front right corner for continuity. If the float switch is good and no 120 volts at the water valve then I would ohm the wires from the board to the water valve. if they are good then you have a defective control board.

 

You may send additional questions directly to me.

 

Please push the green accept button if I have answered your question satisfactorily.

 

Thank you,

 

Peter

About $130.00. It is available from www.reliableparts.com

 

If I have answered your questions satisfactorily please push the green accept button.

 

Thank you,
