Question about Dishwashers
Dishwasher wont fill I've already changed out water inlet valve
Some dishwashers have a float inside that shuts off the water when it reaches a certain level check to see that the float is not stuck in the high water ( off ) position. Hope this helps.

Follow-up: I was able to fix the problem on Bosch model # SHU 4002UC. Purchased water inlet valve (part number 425458) from Sears Parts Center. I required the Sears unit number from the original invoice as Sears computer system apparently cannot identify the Bosch model number. The valve is as described by meyerjr above; however it is located at the bottom front of the machine so could be replaced (not so easily) without removing the machine. Cost of part was $30.50 Cdn including tax.

find the tech sheet and ohm out the valve with a multimeter. or pull off the plug, and connect a multimeter to it. select a cycle, hit start, shut door, wait a few minutes and you should be getting 120VAC out of the plug. if the voltage is there and the no water is entering the machine, faulty valve.

Tips for a great answer:
When the Dishwasher won't fill you'll need to check for the water inlet hose, the water inlet valve and the float switch assembly. When the water fills your dishwasher, a float rises along with it. As the float reaches a certain threshold level, it shuts off the flow of water, thereby preventing a leak. Sometimes the float can get stuck in the wrong position in your dishwasher, and it can prevent your dishwasher from filling. Sometimes it can happen due to float valve and on other occasions due to float switch. Inspect the water hose coming to the dishwasher for any blockages. If the hose is not clogged then check the water inlet valve for any clogs, if the water will not even fill for few seconds then certainly the water inlet valve is bad and should be replaced. You can also use a multimeter to check continuity on inlet valve. If you don't get any value on the multimeter then you'll need to replace the water inlet valve assembly. However, if the valve is fine then the float switch assembly should be replaced. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

most common causes of this problem are a defective water inlet valve or
a stuck float switch. The float switch sits under the dish racks and
sends a shut-off signal to the dishwasher when the water level is high
enough. Make sure you only use a Maytag-compatible replacement if you
have to change out your dishwasher's float switch or water inlet valve.
