Re: no water going to the dishwasher
Actually there is a pump that moves the water threw channels. this pump may be experiencing motor issues. i would find a repair man or, if you good a disassembling the dishwasher, you can extract this part and replace it at you local appliance shop.also, this pump assembly could be jammed as well due to an object.

John make sure the drain line under the sink and unit haven't been pinched from stuff under the sink in particular. Check where the drain hose attaches to drain under sink and take it off and make sure it's clear. It is one of the most common areas where the drain hose gets clogged at the connection or in line at a sharp kink in the hose. If the unit is not running then the problem is there and if the unit makes no noise when in pump mode you should be able to tell. That could indicate a bad pump or switching issue from clean to empty. Now for the occasional weird things that happen. In the bottom of the dishwasher is a screen of sorts that keeps large objects from getting into the pump. I have on occasion found that screen so full of food particles that the water can't get to the pump. Most dishwashers have a mulching type unit on the pump to help chop food up but if the stuff can't get to it, it clogs. I know of 2 units that ruined the pump from running them dry and in both, food clog was the problem. The screen is readily accessible and a semi- soft brush and hot water should clear it. The reason this happens is the food gets baked on the screen when the unit goes into dry mode. Like I said it's not real common but if all else says the unit should empty, check this.
Check the water supply line for kinks, check bottom strainer/drain inside to remove particles/trash blocking water from exiting to pump washer motor, be sure no items block rotation of washer heads. Good luck.
Don't know the history of your machine, sounds like possibly the hot water supply valve under your sink is turned off. To check this go under your kitchen sink and inspect water supply valves, (right side cold water) left side hot water valve feeds the machine. Vertical water line is for sink above, there should be a second water line coming off this valve that has its own on/off knob. Make sure this knob is turned on, (counterclockwise)if not sure turn it to the right (clockwise)till stops, then to the left till it stops. This allows hot water to enter dish machine. If valve is on and line is ok, there might be a kink in the line behind the dish machine or a restriction (clog) in the water line. May need to unplug machine and unsecure it to pull it out for inspection. Good luck,best regards.
The pump is a motor
which runs in one direction to spray water in the dishwasher to clean and the opposite
direction to drain the water.The
problem could be from a clog or kink in the drain hose. Several years ago the drain
line would connect to the sink garbage disposal. If the garbage disposal is not
draining or the dishwasher connection to the garbage disposal is restricted or
clogged the dishwasher will not drain. Under the sink, look at the garbage
disposal to see ifa rubber hose is
connected at the side of the disposal unit. If a hose is connected to the side
of the disposal, remove the hose clamp and check for any restrictions from
garbage in the inlet or hose. You can use a screwdriver to clean the fitting to
the garbage disposal and a wire hanger to free any restrictions in the
hose.If the dishwasher does not connect
to the garbage disposal it should connect to the sink trap. This is more common
with new dishwashers because they have built-in disposals. Disconnect the drain
hose from the sink trap and the dishwasher and look for a clog at the sink
connection. The dishwasher inlet should have an angled piece of plastic or
metal facing downward to prevent the waste from the dishwasher from spraying up
into the sink. Do not get to aggressive with the cleaning in order to prevent
breaking the angled piece of plastic or metal. Look for any kinks in the hose
and try to run water through the hose, but do not use the sink which you
removed the drain line from or it could leak under the cabinet.If you see a bad kink replace the hose with a
new one. I hope this works and you find the problem without a great deal of
time or trouble.
Your gonna have to pull the dishwasher out and shut off the water line. Then disconnect the water hose and get you a bucket. Then turn on the water line to see if water comes out. If water comes out strong then your water supply line is good, which means your inlet port on the dishwasher is clogged or hard water has clogged the little holes in the dishwasher arms. Dishwashers are meant to leave a little water remaining at the bottom to keep the sensor from burning up.
check if the bottom rack is inserted correctly. Try turning it 180 degrees and run the cycle. Make sure nothing obstructs the dispenser.
the water does not get into the dishwasher open the dishwasher 3-4
times during cycle, if you don't see any water at least once - check
water valve, water level float and water pressure.
the pump is clogged - there is water, the motor will run but no water is circulated. Check pump filters, check chopper and impeller.
motor in main pump is not working - could be caused by something
stuck on the impeller or chopper or could be a problem with the motor
itself or control board. Check if line voltage is coming to the motor
during wash/rinse cycle.
depending on the brand and mdl the unit may be equipped with an overflow safety. If ther is water under the dishwasher in the floor pan then the sensors will trick the dishwasher into thinking it is leaking. Check under the kick plate . if it is moist then take a hair dryer and dry it up up until there is no moisture at all. This should cancel out the pump command and you can start over .
1st check to see if the water supply is on , check for kinked supply line to dishwasher ,check to see if electrical connections are on valve and 1 more thing is to check if float is jammed (float is a mushroom shaped part located inside front of tub on bottom) just pull up slightly
I eventually unhooked the hotwater line where it comes in below the sink in order to give the slack I needed to hook it up to the elbow on the front of the dishwasher...then slid it into the 24in. space, but found that my hotwater line was 4 inches short! A trip to home Home Dept to buy more line and connectors solved the trick and now it is all hooked up and works with no leaks.
