First check the water supplies at the back of the machine.
That is either a problem wit the inlet valve , or with the water level switch.

See the following suggestions from Repairclinic:

There's no water entering the machine If there's no water entering your dishwasher, check these:

Water-inlet valve
Float switch
Water-inlet valve The water-inlet valve lets water enter the machine. If this valve is defective, you need to completely replace it. It's usually located behind the lower access panel on the left or right side. It's the device with the main water line (usually copper) from the house, a rubber tube to the dishwasher, and two wires attached to it.

Float switch The float switch is a small electrical switch that's located right below the dishwasher "floor." Above the switch, on the inside of the dishwasher, is a plastic cylinder that floats up as water fills the dishwasher. If this switch is defective, or if the plastic float gets caught or trapped in the raised position, the water can't enter the dishwasher. If the float switch is defective, you need to replace it.

Bosch dishwasher will not take in water after cut off of external water supply while machine running. Tried reset

Could be a problem with the seal? I am not a mechanic but if if works when you add water to the drum (the place where the washing goes) then it sounds like a problem with the seal. Check that the washer ( rubber o-ring) is in place where the inlet pipe connects to your water supply, also check that the seal where the pipes connect to the machine (if there is a connection that can be checked).

How long does the 55 degree normally run for

Depends on the water temp going into the machine. Dishwashers should be connected to cold water. Some people fit to hot water but the machine will go through the cycle too fast and you wont get a decent wash result. 55 isn't superhot for a machine (I assume this is 55 celcius?) Most machines will take about 45 mins to an hour.

My GE Nautilus dishwasher takes water in and then stops and nothing happens. I tried flusing it with hot water and vinegar and no progress. Any ideas are very welcomed. Thank you.

Flushing the hose with hot water and vinegar would not help.
If the machine is filling and then stops, parts that may be responsible are the impeller pump and the control board.
If the machine is under filling, test also the floater switch.
If the water is not warm, check the heating system or the hot water supply.
If this machine has dual inlet, test that both solenoids are opening.

Dishwasher will not go through complete cycle it will not take water away

most washing machines nowadays have a electrically operated switch that will open to either drain or let in water if ur machine does not drain the water the machine will not go ahead in completing its cycle as the sensors sense that there is water in the drum so unless the water drains u will have this problem. Check for a click sound when the machine reaches a point to drain if that doesn't happen then it is this drain switch that isn't working

A01 warning on constantly. Just appeared dont know to fix

Have you checked there is no water in the base of the machine?

There is likely a float in there which activates a microswitch turning on the drain pump.

You could try tilting the machine through 45 degrees and see if any water comes out.

It could take only a cupful of water inside the base of the machine to trigger the safety switch
