Re: My dishwasher will not fill with water?
The water level sensor is not working right. Generally, these are floats in the lower right side of the inside tub. They jam up and will not move due to detergent buildup. Gently move the float up and down to clear the issue. If you have a water heat cycle, use it next time to help 'melt' the detergent buildup.
If you don't have a float, you have a sensor located in the bottom of the machine with a tube going up to the tub. It has a thin hose and two wires coming out of it and is about 3 inches in diameter and about half an inch thick. It has broken and will need to be replaced. Test it by shorting the two wires and seeing if the washer fills.

This is a very common complait about dishwashers taking a very long time to complete cycles. More than not if you start your dishwasher cycle wait untill your washer fills with water. Reach in and feel the temp. of the water. If it is cold the dishwasher try's to heat the water. Most of the dishwashers are not design to heat water. And here is the delay. Try to run the water at your sink first until it is hot, Star your dishwasher and see if the cycle runs correctly. http://www.on-timeapplianceplano.com
Your dishwasher may pre-heat the water. If so, and if the water entering the dishwasher is cool, the heater may take up to half an hour to heat the water.
To avoid the wait, increase the incoming water temperature before turning on the dishwasher. Do that by running the kitchen sink faucet until the water runs hot. Or increase the temperature of the hot water to the entire house at the hot water heater.
Timers don't often fail. But if every other part of the dishwasher seems to be working properly and the timer knob seems to be stuck in one place--doing one function continuously--the timer may be at fault. Dishwasher timers can't be repaired. If yours is defective, replace it.
Make sure you get water to the dishwasher. Check to see if the water shut-off valve (located under the sink) is open. If you get water to the dishwasher, but there is still no water inside during the fill cycle, the problem might be with a faulty water valve (located at the bottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, on either side), in which case replace the water valve.
first I would check screen on the water fill valve. make sure it is not plugged.
also check the fill hose make sure the hose is not pinched
check that the water is turned on all the...
this dishwasher is time filled the float is to stop the dishwasher at a overfill problem...
Air gap is clean Garbage disposal is clean Dishwasher fills with water OK Drain pump runs after a wait of several minutes and seems to run slow but drains most of the water out of the reservoir. Dishwasher is not running the wash cycle (spraying water on dishes)
The float switch in the tank is bad,also if water only trickles in your fill valve is going bad which will not let it fill all the way to start wash cycle. Fill tub with pot of water to raise float, if wash cycle starts,replace fill valve,if not,replace float switch.
