Hi,

There might be may reasons. Let me provide you with all the steps :-

\015\012\015\012 \015\012 Water-inlet valve\015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012\015\012\011\015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012\015\012 \015\012 Most\015\012cleaning problems are caused by the dishwasher not getting enough wash\015\012water, so the water-inlet valve is often to blame. This valve is\015\012usually at the bottom left or right of the dishwasher, behind the lower\015\012access panel. It's the device with the main water line from the house,\015\012a rubber tube to the dishwasher, and two wires attached to it. \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012\015\012\011\015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012\015\012 \015\012 When\015\012a water-inlet valve is defective, you may hear the sound that's usually\015\012referred to as "water hammer." If the water-inlet valve is defective,\015\012you need to completely replace it. \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012\015\012\011\015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012\015\012 \015\012 Dishwasher Water Inlet Valve Replacement

Be sure to read and understand any instructions that come with the new water inlet valve.

\015\012Tools required:

\015\012Adjustable wrench

\015\012Multi-Screwdriver

\015\012Pliers

\015\012Step 1. Disconnect the dishwasher from its power source.

\015\012Note: Dishwashers are usually wired directly to the home’s electrical\015\012system. To disconnect the power, switch off the circuit breaker or\015\012remove the fuse for the electrical circuit the dishwasher is attached\015\012to. Try to turn the unit on after disconnecting the power to be sure\015\012you were successful.

\015\012CAUTION: If you’re not sure you’ve shut off the power properly, DO NOT\015\012CONTINUE. Call a qualified appliance repair technician to complete the\015\012repair.

\015\012Step 2. Turn off the water supply to the dishwasher. This is usually\015\012underneath the kitchen sink or in the basement or crawlspace near the\015\012location of the dishwasher. Pliers may be helpful here.

\015\012Note: If there are no shut-off valves, you must shut the water off at the main water supply valve for your home.

\015\012Step 3. Remove the lower panel(s) of the dishwasher. These are usually\015\012held by 2 to 4 screws at the upper and lower corners of the panel(s).

\015\012The inlet valve is usually near the front of the dishwasher. Attached\015\012to the valve you’ll see: 2 or 4 wires, the water supply line from the\015\012house and the water feed line that goes to the dishwasher.

\015\012Step 4. Remove the household water supply line from the valve. The line\015\012is usually secured with a brass compression nut. The water supply line\015\012is usually copper or braided stainless steel.

\015\012CAUTION: Water supply line may be hot.

\015\012Step 5. Remove the fitting from the valve the water supply line was\015\012attached to. This fitting may be very difficult to remove. It may help\015\012to put the valve into a vice in order to remove the fitting. If you\015\012cannot remove it, replace it. The fitting is not an appliance part but\015\012a plumbing part that is available at most hardware stores.

\015\012Step 6. Remove the screws holding the valve to the dishwasher frame.

\015\012Step 7. Label the wires to the valve so you’ll be sure to reattach them correctly.

\015\012Step 8. Remove the wires from the valve.

\015\012Step 9. Remove the clamp on the black rubber water discharge tube and pull the tube off of the valve.

\015\012Step 10. Reinstall the old fitting (or a replacement fitting if\015\012necessary) onto the new valve the water supply line was attached to.\015\012Use Teflon tape or pipe joint compound as a thread sealant. Make this\015\012fitting tight to prevent leaks. Make sure that the fitting points in\015\012the same direction as the old one so that the water supply line will\015\012meet up with it properly.

\015\012Step 11. Install the new valve in the reverse order of the removal instructions.

\015\012Note: The water supply line is under high pressure. Be sure to tighten the fittings properly.

\015\012Step 12. Turn on the water to the machine, and check for and correct any leaks.

\015\012Step 13. Reinstall the access panel(s). Restore the power to the dishwasher and test.

Dishlex Global 310 model. My dishwasher has water sitting on the bottom of it and it wont drain. I noticed it after I did a cycle of dirty dishes and the 'fast' light was flashing when I went to open it. Which shouldnt have been because it was on a normal wash. The water has been sitting at the bottom for 2 days now and still wont drain! I've taken out all the parts on the bottom which come out and cleaned them. Still no change however.
