If the washer is not used regularly the shaft can stick to the seals and prevent the motor from spinning. This happens quite regularly for me if I don't use the washer often. You can just take off the bottom panel - after shutting off power to the dishwasher - and access the motor. you should see some fins and then just try to spin the motor by hand. It usually takes about 90 degrees of rotation before the motor breaks free from the seal. You'll have to fight through the spring-like resistance created by the seal-shaft adhesion. After it breaks free the motor spins freely and you should be all set to go. I haven't found a more permanent fix for this other than running the dishwasher more regularly.

Some diswashers have a sump in the bottom with a float switch. If the water level overflows the float will activate the switch which will kill the machine and run the drain pump continuously.

I found on my first dishwasher the arm holes were plugged. I had to clean out each and every hole with a small wire. They would not even turn until I cleaned them God luck.

If the machine functions properly when you add water, then it is likely there is a problem with the water supply. Start at the valve under the kitchen sink.
First I would turn that valve off and remove the water line. Then turn the valve on slowly. Use a small bucket or a large cup to catch the water. You should also have a lot of towels on hand.
If you are not getting much water through it, you may need to change that valve. If you are getting a good flow of water through it, inspect the water line checking for crimped or crushed parts. (is the line copper? braided steel?)
Reconnect the water line to the valve and disconnect it at the dishwasher. Now flush water through the line. how is the flow?
Lastly inspect the water inlet valve on the machine. I found a walkthrough for that at http://www.easyapplianceparts.com/repair.aspx?appliance=dishwasher&part=dishwasher-wont-fill
Actually, you might want to check that first. It may be as easy as cleaning a screen. I'm a plumber, not an appliance tech, so I tend to take a global approach to water supply.
Best of luck
