A few things to check:
- is the timer running? The first thing the timer does is open the water valve solenoid. You should hear a click immediately before the water flows through the pipe. If you don't hear this click, then either the dishwasher has no power (check your circuit breaker), the timer is faulty, or the solenoid is faulty.
- is the water turned on? Obvious question, but I have to ask.
- is the hose kinked somewhere?
You didn't mention if the rest of the functions work after the fill function. If so, it must be either the solenoid or a water delivery problem. If not, perhaps the dishwasher has no power, or else it is probably the timer.

If the water inlet
valve is fine and it fills with water then the issue seems to be with the float
switch assembly that is bad and should be replaced. Float assembly is found
inside the dishwasher's tub, on the bottom. The water that fills the dishwasher
lifts the float, and when it reaches a certain level, it acts as a trigger for
the float switch. The float triggers the float switch to shut off, thereby
shutting off the flow of water into the dishwasher. A defective switch may
interfere with dishwasher's filling and/or draining ability. Use voltmeter to
test the switch. Set the device to the ohms setting x 1. Take each probe and
touch them to one switch terminal each. This should produce a reading of either
zero or infinity. Continue to touch the probes to the terminals, and press down
on the switch's button. The reading should change to the opposite extreme. If
the switch fails either of these tests, you should replace it. Hope this helps...please post back for

Dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due to
kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. Check the drain hose for
any visible clogging, remove if present. If no visible lint is present then
remove then turn off the dishwasher and remove the drain hose and check for any
visible clogging. If it's still not visible then the drain filter or drain pump
is clogged and you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump. Also,
check for any food pieces stuck near the pump impeller. Please note that
dishwashers don't drain out the complete water such that heating element
doesn't overheat. Hope this helps... Please post back for any further
