Re: no water being allowed into dishwasher
You may have a bad water soleniod. there is also a mesh on the solenoid. go here to identify
if you have your model number and make you can go here to identify it www.techray1.com then click on the guru guy on the left. this will open another window. on the left you can select your model and unit and part. If this helps please rank me

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...

I'm not entirely sure what you mean by "floods at the end of the cycle". Is water leaking from the washer and where from?
The mushroom float isn't a water level sensor to determine when the washer should pump out. It's a second level safety feature to prevent flooding if the washer overfills. The flow meter regulates the water level in the washer.
Your pump is obviously working and there is no blockage in the drain hose, etc as the water pumps out when you lift the mushroom float. It sounds like the pump isn't receiving a signal from the controller to pump out at the end of the wash cycle. Lifting the float bypasses the controller and runs the drain pump.
Please try the following simple test:
1. Switch the programme selector to "Off" 2. Empty a bucket of water into the bottom of the washer 3. Turn the programme selector to any wash cycle 4. Press and hold the Reset button (start/stop) for at least 3 seconds.The washer should drain.
Please try this test and let me know if the washer pumps out. Please can you also be a little more specific about how and where the washer is flooding.
The most likely causes are a failed drain pump motor (or capacitor) or a jammed/broken pump impeller. There is a very simply simple test on classixx models which which help you to determine the cause, or where to look next.
1. Turn the wash cycle selector to any wash cycle so the "ON" light is illuminated, but do not press the START/STOP button. 2. Open the door and pull the lower basket out. 3. Locate the 'float', lift it up fully and keep it held up.
(The float is a dome/mushroom shaped protrusion in the base of the washer just to the left of the drain and partially hidden by the spray arm)
When you lift the float, the drain pump should run instantly and the water should drain from the washer. If you can hear a low hum from the pump motor in the base of the washer, but the water doesn't drain, then it's likely that the pump impeller is jammed or it may have broken away from the spindle. If this is the case, try repeatedly lifting and dropping the float fairly rapidly. Repeated stop/start signals to the pump motor can sometimes free a stuck impeller.
If you cannot hear any noise from the base of the washer when you lift the float, then the drain pump motor or the motor capacitor may have failed. A failed capacitor is often accompanied by a buzzing noise. Further testing will be required to determine the exact cause of the fault.
Please try the simple test above and then post back with the results for further assistance.
When the Dishwasher is not filling in, you'll need to check for the water inlet valve, the filter screen and the float switch/assembly. Also check for the float assembly inside the dishwasher. When water is filling 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 these are fine then it's due to Water Inlet Valve. Use a multimeter and check for the continuity on inlet valve.

Possible that the inlet valve is not working . check the voltage of the inlet valve when the program is put ON. If there is voltage with no water flow the valve is faulty if not the program controller is having errors and must be checked out.
Try turning water off to dishwasher and see if it stops it. If so, replace valve. If not check for a low drain hose loop, allowing drain water from sink to back up into dishwasher. Just raise drain hose as high as possible under sink and secure.
fault is that there is a leak. the tray at base of dishwasher is full of water which operates a float and turns on drain pump. tilt over 45deg and water will run out and then it will work or remove bottom front panel and mop out (better). then find leak
