Hi, First thing you want to try is the float located inside front corner. Lift it up and down and see if you hear a click each way and then try to add water. If you still don't get any water, remove the front lower kick plateand locate the inlet valve on left side. turn on the D/W and test voltage to the inlet valve. You should get 120V. If you get voltage and still no water, check to be sure the water source was not shut off. If the water source is ok, and there is 120V to the valve, replace the valve.
Please let me know if I have helped or if I can assist you further.
Thanks
Vic

If there's no water entering your dishwasher, check these:

Water-inlet valve
Float switch
Water-inlet valve The water-inlet valve lets water enter the machine. If this valve is defective, you need to completely replace it. It's usually located behind the lower access panel on the left or right side. It's the device with the main water line (usually copper) from the house, a rubber tube to the dishwasher, and two wires attached to it.

Float switch The float switch is a small electrical switch that's located right below the dishwasher "floor." Above the switch, on the inside of the dishwasher, is a plastic cylinder that floats up as water fills the dishwasher. If this switch is defective, or if the plastic float gets caught or trapped in the raised position, the water can't enter the dishwasher. If the float switch is defective, you need to replace it.

SOURCE: WATER FILL LEVEL

Every cycle has its own water measurements for example: Heavy Wash : 7.2 gal. so check the manual for further information. And don?t worry there is an Overfill Protector, so you won?t do any damage. Good luck

SOURCE: dishwasher filling correctly?

john, the dishwasher has a timed fill, make sure you are using 3/8 inch line. If you are using 1/4 inch, that would be your problem. The fill should be just below the heating element. If you are using the 3/8 inch line, the next suspect would be the fill valve itself. Make sure nothing is kinked, Catriver.

SOURCE: Kenmore dishwasher 58715142400 fills but doesn't wash

Motor has gone out..just like mine...Make sure u have voltage going to the motor, (disconnect the plug from the motor) and use an electric meter to make sure you have voltage going to the motor. If so the motor has either gone out or has been blocked by something! If no noise except clicking then motor has gone out. Looking at about $150 for motor.

Tub wont fill with water


Could it be the water is not getting to the machine? Usually there is a water inlet fitting on the back or bottom of the machine. Please check that first.
Be blessed.

Slow fill of water is due to the strainer clogging. Strainer is located on the body of the machine where the inlet water hose is connected.

No water entering dishwasher. seems to cycle but with now water.


open the dishwasher in the tub on your left bottom you will see a large plastic bubble lift the bubble (float) up and, down vertically, listen for a "click" the float sits above the water fill switch: the float's weight causes a pin on the float to press down on the switch to let water in the float sometimes can get stuck in the up position by debris and, prevent the fill switch from letting in water. When the float is lifted by the water in the tub to a predetermined height the pin comes off the fill switch lever and, turns off the water so that the dishwasher tub does not overflow. check this please.

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.

My dishwasher not spraying water


Answer kind of depends on whether tub fills or not. If tub is filling and the arms just aren't spraying water, that would suggest a problem with the pump or motor. If the tub is not even filling at all, then it may be a problem with the intake strainer, solenoid or valve. If you give mfg/model and more specific info I will try to help... Tripp
