Customer Question
Kitchen aid dish washer...

Kitchen aid dish washer model kdte204dwh1 washer was not filling with water. replaced valve inlet but still no water. How much voltage activates the valve inlet ?

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your KitchenAid is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

3 Yrs.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

I don't think so. The inlet valve I'm sure need to be activated electrically. And thats what I want to check. If it's getting the proper voltage then the valve is defective.

The water inlet valve is activated by 120 volts A/C

And have you also made sure that the float switch is not stuck in the up position ? that will make the unit not fill due to it thinks it has water in it already .

Where is the float switch located ? Or is the valve inlet the float switch ?
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
Does the 124AC activate when the run button is pushed ?
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 3 months ago

the Float switch is mounted on the front left corner inside the tank right above the water inlet valve and the wiring for the Float switch is right by the inlet valve under the dishwasher .

I don't think I'm getting voltage
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 3 months ago

ok let`s open the dishwasher door and pull out the lower rack and on the front left corner pull up on the float bulb and let go of it a few times and then try to see if the dishwasher will fill with water or not .
