SOURCE: NO Water
Check the float under the lower rack. It should move up and down freely and you should hear a click when moving it. This operates a switch that turns the power to the water valve off if it gets to full. If it sticks in raised position or has gotten out of place where it rests on switch under the dishwasher, the valve will not let water in.

Hello, I have just installed a similar model, and took the side panel off to see how it was put together ;)
The drain hose goes in the back of the dishwasher, then loops up the right side (as you are looking at the front)(this is to act as a "trap" to keep sewer gases from coming back into your washer, I assume), and then connects to the drain pump under the washer.
In order the change the hose, you will need to remove the left side panel, and the bottom panel, and this will give you access to the entire hose....
Hope this helps!

The float you speak of is located behind the left side panel. (be careful if you remove the panel, the back edge is real sharp,.... I left a pint of blood at one house !) Water enters the dishwasher fill assembly and turns a paddle wheel, which allows the control to count the revolutions, determining the amount of water filling into the dishwasher. The float is inside a chamber in front of (and attached to) that water guide and it has two micro switches at the top of the float chamber. If I recall correctly, the float is only for overfill protection, as the paddle wheel determines water amount. You should check the screen at the water valve to make sure nothing is obstructing inlet valve water flow. Also, make sure you are not using a "flood safe" inlet hose, which are designed to shut off water if a hose breaks (but can cause water supply issues). You may have a bad control board or wiring connection. On a new unit I would suggest calling for warranty service.
Please don't rate this solution, as anything but a FixYa will lower my score.

Check and see if you have 120 comming to the fill valve. if you do the start to loosen the hose you connected to make sure the valve actually opened when you turned the water back on
