Hi Margaret. That looks like a part number of some sort. There is a model number tag where the door meets the dishwasher - typically on the left. If you are unable to find a model number, I can give you more general information - causes in order of probability for most Whirlpool dishwashers.

There we go. One moment while I look that up.

So for this model. I always suspect the float switch. Make sure that it goes all the way down. You will want to hear a "click" of the switch when you push it down or pull it up. This verifies function of the float switch underneath. Secondly, tenants have a way to turning the water supply off. Make sure the water supply under the sink is turned on. If it is on, turn it off then back on, because sometimes debris gets lodged in the valve under the sink. If you have tried both of those things, you will need an ohmmeter to check the continuity of both the float switch on the right of the dishwasher and the inlet valve coil on the left. Would you like the part numbers for these items?
