SOURCE: water inlet valve Kenmore dishwasher

Okay handy Mike,

First of all, is this a new dishwasher? Or, is it a used one? The reason I ask is because there should be a warranty with a new appliance and you should not have to worry, or have to pay for, any repairs.

The problem you are experiencing could very well be a water inlet valve problem (good assessment), but may also be something more simple. The dishwasher has a float inside the tub that is supposed to shut the water off, when it reaches the appropriate fill level. Check the float to make sure it moves up and down and that you can hear the switch "clicking". Sometimes small items get stuck under the float and will keep in the up (or shut off position).

For some helpful part locator drawings refer to searspartsdirect.com and type in your model number. An illustration of the water inlet valve can be found under the "Frame" heading in the next page as item number 24 (part number 154195301). The float and float switch can be found under the "Tub" heading as items number 13 (part number 154144301) and 24 (part number 5300809863), respectively.

If you require further assistance, please let me know. I hope its something simple and you don't require parts. But, if you do, you know where you can get them. If you do not wish to order on line, use the part numbers provided and go to your nearest appliance parts retailer. I hope this helps you. Good Luck.

Jeff

If you have questions along the way, please let me know. A replacement valve can be purchased online at searspartsdirect.com, appliancepartspros.com, repairclinic.com, or pcappliancerepair.com. All these sites offer competitive pricing and excellent service, so shop all of them for the best price. Use your model number for your search criteria. If you do not wish to order on line, use the part number found at the sears or appliancepartpros website and go to your nearest appliance parts retailer. This is a part that is commonly carried as part of the in store inventory. I hope this helps you.

It's quite possible. First see the Sears parts list for your washer with diagrams of all major parts.

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getModel!retrieve.pd?modelNumber=+110.28812790&pathTaken=partSearch

Then see the Whirlpool / Kenmore Service manual for these washers and check the troubleshooting section.

Kenmore Dishwasher Model # 363.14391991 It does not allow water to come into the machine. What could be the problem and what part do I need to repair it?


Hello Sonny,

Welcome to FixYa !

The problem you're experiencing based on your description sounds like (unfortunately) a common one.

First check the float isn`t being obstructed and thereby indicating the unit is already full.

The other possibility....

The water inlet valve can be an issue with dishwasher's if they fail in the closed position, It'll need to be replaced likely, but you can try to fix it.

You can remove the water line and remove the valve and try to clean it out...it's usually futile, but worth a try.

You may want to call in a pro however, the part to repair it is available at most brick & mortar appliance part centers or you can check out on-line vendors such as "repairclinic.com" "searspartsdirect.com" or "apwagner.com" etc.

Do a search by typing in your actual model number and you should find it. Hope that helps move you forward.

Let me know if I you need help on how to change it etc.

**It's relatively easy with Whirlpool built Kenmore or any other for that matter. First Turn off the power, the water, safety first...access is gained through the kick plate/toe panel below the door.**

The valve will be on the left and involves only removing 2 screws, the water line in & out and 2 wires which go on either way...they aren't polarity specific. Should resemble this image...

Thanks for coming to "FixYa" for your inquiries. Let me know how you make out or if you require further assistance.

Good luck.

Cold water not running


First you should remove the hoses and clean the screens in the ends of the hose, some hoses have screens in both ends. While the hoses are removed look inside the water inlet valve there should be a screen in there also remove and clean the screen out. Some screens will not be removable so you will need to clean in place or remove the water inlet valve. If all is clear you will need to check the solenoids on the water inlet valve for power.If the solenoid has power when put in a fill cycle and no water eneters your washer you will need to replace the water inlet valve. Most water inlet valves must be replaced as a unit, so if one solenoid fails you replace the hole valve assembly. These are inexpensive and easy to replace. There is a video at http://appliancehelponline.com/topwaterinletvideo.html that will walk you thru the testing procedure. It may be a different model but the testing will be the same. If you need help disassembling there are also videos of disassembling most styles. You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations of your specific model. Not all models will be available. All parts come with installation instructions.

It fills up with water during the week when I'm not doing any laundry


This condition is typically caused by faulty solenoid or solenoids at the water inlet valve. Unplug the machine, turn off the water, and remove the supply hoses. Check the solenoids at the water inlet valve. They can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter and checking for continuity. A lack of continuity will indicate a faulty solenoid and the inlet valve assy will need to be replaced. Sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

Kenmore 70 series is leaking water. Could it be the pump?


It depends on WHERE the leak is coming from. If the leak is coming from the FRONT area of the washer, the drain pump or drain hoses are suspect. If the leak is coming from the REAR of the washer, the water inlet hoses, water inlet valve, or dispenser hoses may be suspect. If the leak is coming from under the CENTER portion of the wash tub, the tub seal or wash tub may be suspect.

The first step is to remove the exterior washer case to gain access to view. The following link explains how to replace a water pump (if required) on your washer, but also includes all the steps necessary to access the washer interior:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r397092-replacing_water_pump

Allow the washer to fill about 1/3 of the way and turn it off before unplugging and removing the washer casing. The washer will not run once you disconnect the lid switch connector, so you will need some water in the tub to see where the leak may be coming from.

NOTE: If the problem IS a leaking pump, these pumps are not serviceable and will need to replaced.

If you have questions, or need additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Front Load Washing Machine Filling On It's Own


the inlet valves are shot. what happens the coils in the inlet vales can no longer hold the water from going into the unit, causing water to run into unit when not in use. replace the inlet valves and you should be good to go. the inlet valves can be removed by, removing top panel(3screws in back), disconnecting hoses, taking the small clamp on the small hose connected to the dispenser. theirs a small screw holding the inlet valves from back pane, remove old inlet valves and replace and you should be all set. hope it helps.

Hello Friend, Your problem is easily solved. You need to replace the water inlet valve. It's easy to replace the water inlet valve on your machine. First, remove the two screws that hold control panel in place and tilt back exposing the two metal clips that hold the cabinet in place. You will see some wires plugged into the cabinet, just unplug them. There are two clips, one on each side. Just pop these clips off and lift cabinet slightly from back and tilt forward. At this point you will be able to completely remove the cabinet. Once you have cabinet removed just set it aside. Now, you will be able to gain access to the water inlet valve. Simply remove the hose and wires from valve and replace with new one. Re-install the cabinet, control panel etc. This should solve your problem. Happy to help, Tim.
