Re: Dishwasher will not run after filled with water
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.

Hello. Is this unit less than 1 year old? If so, anything defective is covered under the warranty(parts and labor). After 1 year, certain parts are covered, however, no labor is covered. Make absolutely sure the door is closed properly--there is an internal door switch that must be closed(tells the main board it's okay to start the cycle) or nothing will happen and produce the exact symptom you describe. Next, the unit could be experiencing an error condition causing the shutdown. Make sure the water supply to the dishwasher is turned on(and always run the hot water in the sink before starting the dishwasher to ensure hot water gets to the unit). Next, do you hear the drain pump working? A lot of dishwashers turn on the drain pump immediately to remove any standing water in the pump before letting in fresh hot water. If the drain pump is jammed or clogged, you might hear a soft humming sound only(from the motor trying to spin) and then the dishwasher will shut down due to it detecting a malfunction. Check the float switch in the tub to make sure nothing has gotten underneath it(ex. a spoon or fork can become lodged underneath and the dishwasher thinks there is already water inside and won't fill) I hope this helps you!
When I start a new cycle, I first hear the pump run to empty out all
remaining water, and after that I hear the motor run for the regular
washing cycle, but there is no water in the dishwasher. After a few
minutes, the cycle stops, and the washer claims the dishes are 'clean'.
When I try starting a new cycle over and over again, about one in 20
times, the cycle will run normally with water. But then the next time,
the problem starts all over again. Once a cycle starts correctly,
everything works fine, including the rinsing.
Make sure there is no detergent in the dishwasher. Put the dishwasher in "Rinse and hold" cycle and start it. Once you hear it starting to fill with water, open the door and pour in a cup of white vinegar. Resume the cycle. You also can try using some citric acid. If all that did not help try this.
turn the valves to the left if there the screw in type or parraell if the quick open type the first thing a dishwasher does when you start it is drain for a few minutes then stops then fills with hot water run the water as hot at the sink as you can before starting the washer there is a float in the tub that can shut the water valve off if its not seated on the safety switch after the drain at the start of cycles stops then you should hear the water valve open and start the fill let me know and we will go from there
