My asko will run through the cycles, but will not fill with water. I checked the water inlet valve and it tested at 240.

I'm open to suggestions...I'm not a bright service tech, the husband wants the washer working so any help is greatly appreciated.

If you're getting 240vac the valve (assume you are in Australia or Europe), and the valve isn't opening, then it's a bad valve by definition

OTOH, if you're located in Ameedika or Oh, Canada and you have 240vac at the valve, then we need to talk 'cuz you should only have 120vac.

Or, are you saying the valve tested at 240 ohms? Without any units with the numbers, I can only guess about what you're talking about. If you did an ohms test o the valve, then you need to check the voltage to it. Something can check good ohms and still be bad. But if it's bad under load (voltage), then it's really bad.

Set your meter to volts and see if the valve is getting 120vac when it should be letting water into the dishwasher. If you're getting 120vac and no water, then replace the valve.
