Hi Michael, Thanks for reply. I have phoned espares, but they have no record for any parts for the WW-DW013, and could suggest no likely fit.
Any more ideas? Is it possible to strip the solenoid to try to clean?
Hi unfortunately the part is a throw away part when it fails as its a coil that is bad in the part, but its easy to replace. Here is a better source for that, tell them you need the water inlet valve;-) Please try this site, they are good but are faster than calling them, please let me know how this goes. http://shop.ukwhitegoods.co.uk/contact-us Thank you Tech Michael, please dont forget to rate so I can set up the free follow ups for you;-)You can also call partmaster

OK Michael, I have submitted a request to ukwhitegoods, and await a reply.
Still waiting for ukwhitegoods reply to my query, and phoned partsmaster who will get back to me in 24/48 hours.
In the block in the inlet pipe there appear to be 2 solenoids, with no external electrical connections so the wiring must be in the pipe?
Indications are that there are generic parts in existence, but no supplier has yet come up with anything.
Wait on, I guess!
No response yet from any suppliers. Last night I tried testing the solenoid by clacking at it whilst dripping water down the pipe and turning the machine on. It worked once but no more, so no doubt the problem is the solenoid. I then cut in to the pipe to see how many wires are used, and there are only 2. Am I right to assume that pretty well any solenoid would do the job? UKwhitegoods site shows a cheap universal one. Do you reckon it's worth a try?
No replies from any supplier with a valve suggestion, so bought a generic one from ukwhitegoods. Attached wiring, and potted it in epoxy for safety. Water enters now, but it is apparent that the circulating pump is not moving water around, although there appears to be a humming noise as though it is trying to start.
Being semi integrated, there is no access to pump without getting to the bottom. I'm old and disabled, so such manipulation is difficult for me.
I'm thinking that either the pump is blocked, or faulty, or I see some mention online of starter capacitor issues.
Since it would be unusual to have 2 faults at the same time, I wonder if there could be pcb issue.
It seems the dishwasher is a badged chinese Haier make, with poor opinions of it. Maybe it's done well to work fine for 4 years, and I'm now flogging the proverbial trying to keep it going?
Thanks for response.
I've got the motor out from the bottom of the machine, and there's no sign of any blockage, and the impeller rotates easily.
The hum sound was very quiet, and I couldn't really identify the source.
I'm thinking that the machine is now trouble, and, judging from online reports, I've been very lucky to have had nearly 5 years use from what is a badged poor chinese dishwasher.
In fact, I've been looking for an alternative whilst this process has been going on, and have just done a deal locally for a Smeg dishwasher as a replacement.
Thanks for your patience and many rapid responses. You can be sure that I will give you good feedback on the justanswers site.
All the best,
