Question
QUESTION: The top rack water sprayers do not spray they dribble at best. I replaced the water carrying tubes from the bottom to the top sprayers and replaced the small valve and filter. The parts place says next to try the pump and motor assemble which I will but I wanted to make sure it is the best next move. As a FYI a couple of years ago I had to replace the computer board to fix the cycling problems. Is there anything other then the pump/ motor it could be or may most likely be?
Thanks

ANSWER: Start a cycle....next after the unit is filled with water, Add a gallon more of water and tell me if the unit washes with more force?  Just trying to determine where to start here....

QUESTION: Sorry for my late reply to you, I added a gallon more of water and washed with more force just like it use to. I am guessing it is the mother board then not the pump and motor?

ANSWER: Quit guessing (it cost you unnecessary money) and replace the water inlet valve.  Part number is W10327249 and your cost is 45.00 through us + not more than 9.95 shipping depending on where you live.  Replaced this and you will be fine.

QUESTION: Thanks Eric and Ann, is the water inlet valve different from the small valve and filter where the waters come in because i replaced that already.
Thanks

Answer
You never mentioned that you replaced the water inlet valve...This is the item your home water supply attaches to.  You need to monitor voltage going to this valve.  When voltage is present, water should be flowing into your machine.  When finished, the unit should have enough water in it to produce forceful washing.  Does it fill properly?   Do you have a voltage meter and know how to use it?
