Before you order a fill valve, check the resistance with an ohm meter....if you have continuity....then something else is most likely wrong.

Are you saying that you can manually fill it with water and the pump runs? If so, your incoming ac is ok.

All of the wiring was fine. I replaced the copper (compression fitting shot) line with a braided stainless line and one of those slip over turn off faucet deals - pretty slick. Replaced inlet valve and the dishwasher is back in business!

I'm left some details out of the story because I may have done them wrong. The last thing I want to do is come in here and act like I know what I'm doing when I'm looking for help. I'm new at this but learning.

A coworker's guess was that it wasn't a bad fill valve, but a bad control board because I fried it? I don't know, but .
Leaving out details can get the wrong answers, but it looks like you have it fixed now I see.
Just to respond to the older text above;

Electronic boards can be damaged real easy, and they can be a bear to try and field test as a DIY'er without equipment, wiring diagrams and specs at least, but one can carefully look the board over to see any obvious burn spots, melted areas, discolorations etc.


Capacitors, resistors, diodes etc can all fail at any time from static electricity, a short, power surge, age, or just from poor construction. One of those components can fail and not show any visible signs of it, so there's always a good chance an electronic board has failed.


The big problem is, many such boards are not sold to the general public to replace, some are proprietary designs and can't be field repaired and can't be taken to a place like Radio Shack to fix them. If the board says it's a copyrighted design and not field repairable or soemthing, you can't even get it repaired by anyone other than the factory or their reps.

I had an RV furnace whose ignitor board failed, I knew the problem, I had the furnace apart on my table, the board out, it had a couple of wires and held on with 4 screws- real rocket science to replace, yet the manufacturer would not sell me the board, I was forced to take it to an RV repair place 90 miles away to pay some joker $75 labor to put in a new board with 4 screws and slide 2 wires on.

Why would you want to hardwire the dishwasher? If it was never going to be pulled out....sure....you don't hardwire a dryer....
The use of the word "earthing" tells me those instructions were written for some foreign country, not the USA. I hardwired my dishwasher because that's what the installation instructions said to do. Obviously, others may be different.

As we all know, almost everything you buy now is made in CHINA and the instructions are always in some wierd version of Chinglish that makes little sense, which if they asked any ten year old kid could give them corrections!

Some examples from my Chinese scooter owner's manual for laughs:

Quote:
Oil change director: it points out when must change engine oil.

Starting: when engine in operation, do not press down the button to avoid bad effect on engine.

Turn signals: If use turn signal light, the turn signal indicator on instrument panel in the same direction blinks at the same time.

NOTICE: Do not add much gasoline suddenly with throttle grip to prevent motorcycle out rush unexpectedly.

Choose a plain place:
Choose a plain place not retarding traffic and raise up the main stand. Motorcycle is easy to fall down at a place not plain.
Just hate doing things that have a "bad effect" on the engine!
I think everyone who operates a motor vehicle knows how the turn signal indicator lights work LOL
Wouldn't want my bike to suddenly rush out unexpectedly!
I don't know about anyone else but I prefer a FANCY place to park, to heck with those plain places they are too boring!
