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.

WMUD962p not taking water

Possible the filters in the inlet of your machine (top behind) are clogged. It is simple to clean out, refit carefully. Plug off the machine, unscrew the inlet water connection just behind machine to check fine filters. The water from your wall faucet should have good pressure.

If helped, pl click.

Machine does not take water. the water does not come in to the machine. I think it can be the water pump.

Before breaking into your machine, shut off your water inlet valve(s) to the machine. Remove your water inlet hoses from the machine and aim them into the wash tub or a bucket. Check water flow through hoses. Debris in water system can clog up the screens on your water hoses.

Ty for being here. I have a kenmore stack washer

Inside the machine you have a valve called inlet.

The inlet water valve will collect the cold and hot water lines, and open alternatively one or the other during cycle.

To access the inlet valve you need to take apart the machine, and that is not an easy task.
If you DIY remember to unplug power, there is high voltage running inside your appliance.

Below the inlet valve for your model:
