This would mean that the dishwashers water valve has failed. This is a simple repair to make yourself. The lower access panel would need to be removed, four screws. You can purchase the part from the link below.

The problem is hard water. There is a new product out called the dishwasher filtration system.It filters the water before it enters your dishwasher. It works amazing and has a money back guarantee.You will love the way your dishes look after the first load. It is also very affordable (like 70 bucks). Go to www.dishwasherfilter.com to find out more info.
Your gonna have to pull the dishwasher out and shut off the water line. Then disconnect the water hose and get you a bucket. Then turn on the water line to see if water comes out. If water comes out strong then your water supply line is good, which means your inlet port on the dishwasher is clogged or hard water has clogged the little holes in the dishwasher arms. Dishwashers are meant to leave a little water remaining at the bottom to keep the sensor from burning up.
I have the same problem as those who stated their dishes are not getting clean. If you listen to the wash cycle you should hear water sloshing around inside. If you hear just a humming sound the washer has no water. I have this problem. I had a tech come and he told me the water is syphoning out my drain and I need to change my plumbing, then he charged me $65. I have lived in this house for ten years. 6 with the washer that came with house and 4 with this Kenmore Elite. This problem started about 6 months ago. So what I have been doing is opening the door, after the humming starts and the sloshing stops, and adding about 2 L of water. It seems to wash just fine after that.
I had a similar problem. I cleaned everything that I could (lower screen, etc.) and still had scum. I have hot and softened water and neither fixed it. If your water is not soft or hot, you may be out of luck.
Here is a cheap solution. If it does not work, you are out some vinegar. I started the rinse cycle, once it was full of water, used 1 cup of white vinegar dumped it in the bottom of the washer and ran it through. 20 min. Then ran another rinse cycle to wash it down. Next load came out 5 stars! Just like new. Hope it works.
your dirty water backed up into the washer (which it shouldn't do) and probably clogged something in there,..i would recommend getting it flushed out somehow, not sure how,.....next time, your washer drain hose should go up under the sink as high as possible and then back down to drain,....this settup makes it hard for drain water to go back into washer,....it's instructed in any dishwasher manual
