kenmore elite dishwasher 665.13123k701blinking light 8-1

Fred Manry posted a trouble code chart was very handy! First a little history on my dishwasher 665.13123k701: this came from my parent’s house it is three yrs old. They wanted something not stainless… We installed it, no problem and it ran about 4x’s beautifully. Then one evening I started it and walked off to do laundry. While standing at the clothes washer in the garage (about 10 ft away) I heard a LOUD POP from the dishwasher in the kitchen. And I may have seen a flash? Or it just scared the daylights out of me! After that, it kept running...I thought maybe it was something else that made the POP but since didn’t finish? (The dishes were not clean) It when it stopped soon after it blinked the 8-1 code. We are a DYI family so we used your Fred's Manry's list and downloaded the “fill drain and overflow schematic” to try to fix it. We checked water flow (all hooked up and not leaking), the level, the water temp, emptied it to insure nothing was blocking water flow, the float was clear and would “click”, and then we “guessed” it may be the solenoid on the inlet valve (part 7 on schematic) and replaced it. Well, new part installed and it still just blinks 8-1 at us and won’t run…what would you replace next? Thanks! Sarah (AKA the Texas RaceGirl)
