No power to water inlet valve
« on: March 05, 2021, 10:58:18 AM »

My Kenmore Elite dishwasher model # 665-1276 stopped mid cycle.  At first it wouldn't drain. I pulled the drain pump and found a broken blade so I replaced the pump.  I noticed I had kinked the copper supply hose so I replaced it with a flexible braided hose.  I could now hear it go into the draining cycle but strangely it wasn't getting any water!  I replaced the hot water supply valve under the sink (It was old and deteriorating).  Still no water so I checked the water inlet valve for continuity and it tested ok. I also tested the overflow switch and it too was fine.  Since I still wasn't getting any water I tested the water inlet valve with a power cord and it worked fine.  Lastly, I hooked up my voltmeter to the inlet valve supply wires and ran a wash cycle to check to see if it was getting 120 volts.  It registers some voltage during the drain cycle but nothing when it should be filling.  When the dishwasher is just sitting in the off position with nothing selected I can hear it humming like it is trying to do something.  I would appreciate any help on this problem!



Thank you,
