Hi Geraldine,

Thank you for submitting a question to Manage My Life.

If you have replaced the inlet valve and the float switch, this issue is most likely caused by:

  1. No voltage to the valve.
  2. Bad timer.
  3. No water supply.
  4. Bad wiring.
  5. Faulty door switch.


The diagnosis of this issue will require a volt/ohm meter.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website; Sears Home Services .

Thanks, For all the help. I believe it's the timer. I will check back once I've replaced it.

I've replaced the timer, water inlet valve and the switch float and the machine still will not fill with water. How do you check the wiring?

Hi Geraldine,

The remaining checks will require the use of a volt/ohm meter. At this point I suspect the door switches or a voltage problem. If you have a meter and are confident in your technical abilities please let me know and I will be happy to assist you further.

A:

Geraldine,

To begin with I recommend checking continuity across the door switches. With the dishwasher de-energized (breaker off) or unplugged and the door switches made, you should read continuity across them white to white/violet and tan to black.

If the door switches are good you will need to check voltage out of the timer brown to white/violet at the fill valve. Working with live electrical current can be very hazardous and possibly deadly. Testing voltage output requires working with electrical current. Do not attempt this measurement without the proper tools and safeguards.

Let me know what you find.

I noticed that the replacement water inlet valve is110/120V 50/60HZ 5W, the one I removed from the machine is 120V 60hz 7W. Is it possible that the difference in the watt of the valve is the problem?

A:

Hi Geraldine,

That should not make any difference at all. The valve should open as soon as energized with 120vac.
