SOURCE: Leak from dishwasher fill funnel
Hi . the air gap is required by law, to have it there.to stop water in the tub, to end up in your water system, which would never happen. try setting the pressure down, and use the dishwasher. it should work fine . turn down taps ,till it stops leaking . should be ok

SOURCE: Dishwasher will not start cycle.
OK so you have power, your door interlock switch is working, the intake solenoid is operating.
The issue is that the cycle does not start. This would indicate that your timer is not advancing. The timer tells the machine what to do, when, and for how long. It is not advancing and is stuck at the start of the wash cycle (fill with water). This is not a big issue as a timer is usually easy to replace.
I don't know what type of machine you have so I don't know if is a mechanical or a digital timer.
If mechanical dial type you can simply tun the dial and see if the cycles change. If so for sure you timer is the issue. You simply remove and replace.
Digital is harder to check but from what you say it is most likely your timer.
Shut the breaker off.
Remove the screws from the door frame and from inside the door. Gently remove the control panel. The timer is a simple unit to remove. Unscrew it and disconnect the power supply. Go get a new one from your local parts supplier. Installation is the reverse of removal.
Hope this helps, if so please rate this answer.

First, are you sure that the machine is not filling?
I go on calls all the time for this problem and it turns out than the machine fills but the wash motor does not run.This leaves soap in the bottom of the DW so it looks like it did not fill with water. This is a common problem in dishwashers that have not been run for a few months, and is quite common after a remodel. If it IS getting water, the motor is probably stuck. If it is Not getting water the first step is to locate the "over fill" float inside the dishwasher. This will be a round sort of mushroom looking thing on the floor of the machine near the door on the right or left. Make sure it moves freely up and down. It will only move about 1/4 inch but If it is stuck up, the machine will not fill. If float is O.K. then check the water source. Turn of water to DW. Remove the kickplate under DW door and disconnect the waterline from fill valve (should be on front left side of unit). Run waterline into bucket then turn on the water. If you don't get water call your plumber. If you get water then you need to check the fill valve. Connect a volt meter to the 2 wires on the fill valve. Start DW. First the diswasher should start draining, then it will start filling. At this point (a few minutes into the cycle) you should see 120v AC at the fill valve. If you do see 120v Ac, replace the valve. If you don't , then turn off the machine and check the float switch. This is located under the DW right under the mushroom thingy. The switch should have continuity when the DW is empty. If there is no continuity then replace the switch.

1 Wait until the dishwasher has completely cooled after use before attempting to clean the filter. Turn the dishwasher off and unplug it from the power supply.
