Thread: Water inlet overflow issue

  1. #1

    Water inlet overflow issue

    Model Number: KDTM704KPS0
    Brand: KitchenAid
    Age: 1-5 years

    Hello. Im hoping this group may be able to help me figure this issue out. This dishwasher stopped working on us and research indicated the water inlet valve was bad. So I replaced that.


    That solved the initial issue. However as the washer ran, water began to leak from the water inlet. There was a good bit of gunk in there, so I ordered a replacement. Installed the new part today and the water still is shooting out of what I am assuming is an overflow? The photo attached highlights where the water shoots out from.


    this dishwasher has honestly been a nightmare from day 1.


    what am I missing? Anyone seen this?



    Ive even reached out to a couple of local repair people Ive used but both say they no longer do dishwashers. 🤦🏼*♂️

    It could be caused by the water inlet valve that you installed. We see a lot of issues with the aftermarket water valves being sold on Amazon. Below is a link to the OEM Whirlpool water valve. Let me know what you find.

    Would the Amazon valve be pushing too much water through causing the overflow? Ordering the OEM is probably my next move. But trying to understand the why on this too.

    Appreciate it!!!

    I don't know the why either, but my guess would be the wrong flow of water. The aftermarket parts aren't make to the OEM specifications and we see it cause issues. Also, we hear about a large number of the aftermarket water valves flooding peoples houses. They are definitely something to stay far away from. Let me know how it works once you get the OEM Whirlpool water valve installed.
