Default Kitchen Aid dishwasher filler valve stuck on

Kitchenaid dishwasher filler valve appears to be stuck on. Water overflowed out the door flooding the place, nice. I canceled the cycle and waited for the 2-minute timer to finish, but even after that was done fresh water is still flowing into the machine. Help.

If water continues to run after you open the door the water valve is bad and needs replacing. Cut the water off and order the valve. If it stops when you open the door the problem is electrical.

Yes the water kept running even with the dishwasher door open, and continued to run even after I turned the breaker off, so I will order the valve, thanks. Are the directions for replacing it included with the part?

And as long as I'm ordering parts for this dishwasher, I'm wondering about the rinse agent dispenser. It seems to me the manual said a full load of rinse agent is supposed to last 3 months but ours always seems to be gone in a matter of days even with the dial turned down to 2. Is this a common problem, and if so what's the solution?

Bump... I was hoping to get these parts ordered today.

Can anyone advise if there is a solution to the rinse aid dispenser question above?

Here is the tech sheet
http://www.servicematters.com/docs/w...iring_main.htm

It looks like you have to order the complete assembly.
I would remove the inner door panel and check it,
A lot of dishwashers have had problems with rinse aid leaking out of the container and contaminating the wires in the door.
Check it over visually.
As long as it is not always powered on it is probably shot.

I looked behind the door panel and couldn't see any evidence of rinse aid leaking or residue on any of the wiring. So if it is actually leaking, I think it must be coming out the front.

I guess I'll dial it down to 1 and try to monitor it more carefully to see if it's really going through the supply too quickly. I've always found the little indicator window to be pretty useless at showing whether there's anything left, so maybe it just looks empty when it's really not.

I ordered the inlet valve to take care of the stuck-open problem, that was the most urgent thing. Thanks for the help.

It is rare a water solenoid fails like this. I would check the water pressure to the valve and look for foreign objects stuck in the valve screen. Low water pressure will cause a valve to stick open!

I donít disagree about the valve rarely going bad but if it does stick I would replace it. Because I wouldnít risk flooding the kitchen again but if you do have a water pressure problem you need to fix that as well.

The water pressure is great, in fact it was flowing into the tub (and subsquently onto the floor) at quite a healthy rate until I managed to cut off the supply. I ordered the new valve assembly already -- guess I'll see if there were any foreign objects when I pull the old one out.
