Dishwashers have a soap dispenser located on the inside of the door. When the timer cycle calls for the soap to be emptied into the dishwasher, it either sends electricity to a bi-metal switch that opens it, or it mechanically opens the soap dish. On many dishwashers, a plastic actuator arm mechanically links the timer to the detergent cup. When the timer reaches the proper time in the cycle, the timer activates a lever that opens the detergent cup. If the linkage is broken or defective, the cup stays closed after you've closed it. Check the link and repair or replace it, as necessary.
The detergent cup itself can become clogged with old dried detergent that prevents it from opening. Sometimes just cleaning the cup takes care of the problem. If not, you probably need to replace the entire cup assembly.
OK so you have power, your door interlock switch is working, the intake solenoid is operating.
The issue is that the cycle does not start. This would indicate that your timer is not advancing. The timer tells the machine what to do, when, and for how long. It is not advancing and is stuck at the start of the wash cycle (fill with water). This is not a big issue as a timer is usually easy to replace.
I don't know what type of machine you have so I don't know if is a mechanical or a digital timer.
If mechanical dial type you can simply tun the dial and see if the cycles change. If so for sure you timer is the issue. You simply remove and replace.
Digital is harder to check but from what you say it is most likely your timer.
Shut the breaker off.
Remove the screws from the door frame and from inside the door. Gently remove the control panel. The timer is a simple unit to remove. Unscrew it and disconnect the power supply. Go get a new one from your local parts supplier. Installation is the reverse of removal.
The reason for your dishwasher to be pausing in wash cycle because it is not heating, most d/w timers will lose power to the timer motor until the wash tub has reached a desired temperature, if it’s not heating the water it will not advance, although it still could be the timer itself but most likely a faulty heater element or thermostat, does the timer advance at all? If so where timer dial pauses (gets stuck) open door and check water temp (just feel) and close door give it 10Min's or a bit more and water should get a lot hotter (anywhere from 45°c to 75°c) note if it is hot fill water may be hot but not hot enough to trigger temp thermostat to activate timer, if your handy and can see its not heating try to check the Resistance of thermos and heater.

Is the door open or unlatched?Make sure the door is completely closed and latched. On models with a dual-digit display, the control displays "- -" during a cycle if the door is not latched. Check for obstructions (spoons or utensils), that may be interfering with the door operation. A lower dish rack that is installed backward will also cause incomplete door closure. The lights for cycles selected will flash if the door is opened while running a cycle. Is there power to the dishwasher?Check your household electrical box to see if a fuse has blown or if the circuit breaker has tripped. If the unit has a plug-in power cord, make sure it is plugged in. Does your dishwasher have a rotary timer knob?The cycle selection must match the position of the timer knob. Turn the timer knob to the beginning of the preferred cycle. The timer knob should click when you reach the start of the cycle. Is the control lock option activated? The indicator light next to the lock graphic will illuminate when the controls are locked. Press and hold the Heated Dry option (button with lock icon) for three seconds and the light should turn off. Instructions are also placed on the label on top of the inner door to unlock the controls. Is the delay start option activated?To cancel the delay and cycle, press Start/Cancel twice. Is the water shutoff valve turned on?Make sure that the water shutoff valve is turned on.
