I use a test cord to power up the valve. Simple lamp cord with two female connectors. I remove the harness and slip on the clips to the valve and give it 120 to see if it slings any water out.

Thanks for all the help.  I got a new valve, hooked it to the leads and it opened. 

The dish washer is working now.

I did mean volt, not amps.

Thank you all very much for the information and suggestions!
