I have a Kitchenaid dishwasher (model: KUDE40FXSS5)
Our kitchen faucet and drain frozen a couple of days ago. The dishwasher ran that night, without taking in any water. I ran a space heater, etc. and got the water from the faucet running again. But, the dishwasher now constantly runs hot water from the ‘water inlet opening’ (as the manual for the dishwasher calls it).
The searches I’ve done seem to indicate that the water inlet valve is damaged, and needs to be replaced. But, I wanted to post and see if anyone had an alternative suggestion before I get someone out to replace the valve. One other note. The hot water runs into the dishwasher whether the dishwasher is powered on, or off.
I've posted 3 photos of the dishwasher (exterior, wide shot interior and close up interior, with a red arrow marking the water inlet opening) Thanks in advance for any thoughts, or advice!
