dishwasher will not fill

Relatively new Kenmore Elite will not fill with water. It runs ok, but without water. Is there something I can check?

First thing. Simple, but check it anyway. Is the water to the unit turned on?

If yes, then:
Under the door is a removeable panel. Remove that and look for the fill valve. This valve allows the unit to fill with water. You need to check the control voltage at that unit (~120V). If it is there and water is not entering, then the valve is bad and needs replaced. Usually a $30 or so part.


Poke around the above link for more info.

Water is turned on and it is totally quite when trying to fill so I am sure you are right.

Becki, is the float valve inside the diskwasker stuck? Opern the door and push up and down on the float(little round thing, about the diameter of an half dollar), mine use to get struck once-in-awhile.
