My Whirlpool Dishwasher Model WDF530PLYB7 will start like it is running but will not fill with water. A couple years ago the dishwasher overflowed and I could not determine why. It only did it once. I went ahead and bought a new valve but did not install it. The dishwasher ran fine until a couple days ago when it started to leak at the bottom of the door. When I opened it the water level appeared to be too high so I think that is why it was leaking. So today I removed the float switch to check it’s operation. It seemed to work ok so I reinstalled it. Then I suspected that maybe the inlet valve might not be closing fully so I installed the new valve that I had purchased a couple years ago. I started the unit and it ran but did not fill with water (no water at all). Thinking that the new valve might be defective, I reinstalled the old valve. That didn’t make any difference. I rechecked the float switch and it appeared to be ok. I am baffled why neither valve will let water in. Any suggestions on what I can do will be greatly appreciated.
