Re: dishwasher not getting water
Check the solenoid on the water valve.
The water supply connects to the dishwasher water valve, two wires are connected to the solenoid. An OHM meter will tell if this is good. If good, set meter to volts and see if 110 is getting to the solenoid, you will have to turn the timer to the point where water should be coming in.

Cold is probably more efficient unless you have solar heating or your how water cylinder is right next to the washer with minimum amount of piping otherwise by the time the hot water reaches the machine it will have enough in it anyway :p I dont have much experience with water hardness issues as water in my region is quite soft but you can get tablets containing? softener as well as detergent... yes?
well all I can say is, I have ONLY cold water connected to mine, A Parmco, & it works fine? I have many friends, using the same method. It will however take longer to wash, and as you say must heat the water up. But so what? I wonder if you aren't being told "Porkies"? Also "Connected" and "Being used" are two different things, right?
check the water connection at the valve to the dishwasher. If the dishwasher only leaks when used then the motor seal is damaged. If leak is constant the the leak is at the supply to the dishwasher from the water supply at the valve
The water valve may look fine but the solenoid may not be opening to allow water in. You said that everything else works fine except no water supply to the dishwasher. This sounds like a bad soleniod valve. Check for continuity on the valve with an ohms meter after you start it. Be careful.
I need to know is the water not going in the machine at all in other words when you switch on the machine with the tap open can you hear the water flowing,if you can here the water flowing check the hight of you drain hose if it is too low down you will find that you end up with a syphoning effect as the water goes in the machine it gravity feeds out the drain pipe if the drain pipe is low lift it up (about half way of the machine is a general indicater) if you cannot here water flow and the tap is open and machine on it could be your inlet solonoid,it may also be your pressure switch if the machine was tlted it may get water in the pressure tube in wich case you will need to locate the pressure tube and blow it clear if there is water in the pressure tube the pressure switch will think the machine is full,worst case is the (timer or pc board) wich ever your machine has is fualty but this is seldom the case
My GE Nautilus, Serial # GSD363F00W, Model # LA774908 is about 3 or 4 years old. I use it at least once a day. It has been working fine. Today I turned it on, red light came on, and I heard activity of some sort inside machine but no water came. Turned washer off, looked inside, no water. Turned machine back on, again heard some sort of activity but again no water came. Tried twisting the dial through the washing cycles, detergent cup dispensed detergent and dry heat come on, but no water.
