1. checked the Float switch - it has continuity
2. checked voltage at water inlet valve - it becomes empowered for one minute forty seconds then power stops and the dishwasher starts into the post-fill cycle (water pump churns but with almost no water in the base it just froths a little).
Sounds like classic water inlet valve failure no? Quick questions to the masters here:
I. The machine had been leaving sandy brown residue on glasses (despite rinse agent and the fact I clean the inside regularly) - could that have been caused by a partially failing water inlet valve.
II. The machine is 7 years old, I have kept it alive with help from this site but am I due for expensive part failure on this make/model? i.e. do the main boards or pumps on these things go at about this age?
III. FYI for others on this model I have to clean major gunkis out of the bottom vent on the door twice a year (its really gross).
Thanks in advance!
