Warning! To avoid personal injury or even death, always disconnect your appliance from its power source--that is, unplug it or break the connection at the circuit breaker or fuse box--before you do any troubleshooting or repair work on your appliance. Also, because some components may have sharp edges, use caution while working on your appliance.
This link, http://www.repairclinic.com/SmartSearch/SmartSearch.aspx, provides exploded view imagery, belt routing diagrams, parts imagery and function, parts ordering and shipping information, error code details, just about anything you need to get your appliance up and running again. Just follow the links to navigate through the site.
You will need to enter the model number stamped on the manufacturers product information data tag, located on the unit, and not in the User’s Manual. to access your product information.
Here are some common solutions to help resolve the issue with your appliance. Clicking on the underlined links will take you directly to that page.
If your dryer doesn't heat properly, check this: Venting restriction: Disconnect the dryer temporarily from the vent. If the flame stays on for a longer period, you may have an air flow obstruction to the outside. Gas valve coils Watch the igniter. Does it glow bright orange, then shut off without igniting the gas? (When the gas ignites there's a large blue flame.) If so, there may be defective coils on the gas valve. Mounted on the top of modern gas valves, there are black electrical coils. The coils, when energized, open the gas valve. If one or more of the coils are defective, the valve doesn't open and the gas cannot ignite. Because it's often difficult to properly test the coils, it's usually best to replace both (all) of them at the same time. Also, in your case, the coils may work fine initially, but heat build up can cause the coil(s) to malfunction and when they cool down will work again.

Check the following to address this issue--
Note: Normal drying time for a dryer is about 45 minutes (some may take up to an hour).
Make sure the dryer vent hose, as well as the rest of the vent duct, is not clogged.
Unless regular maintenance is performed, chances are there is a lot of lint accumulated inside the dryer. This might affect the drying time and could be a fire hazard. Make sure to have your dryer cleaned regularly. Because this might involve taking most of the dryer apart, it is recommended to have a qualified appliance repairman perform this task.
There are a couple of cycling thermostats inside the dryer. If one of them breaks down, it might affect the dryer's performance. Replace the defective thermostat.
3. Heating element
A heating element might only be partially burned out, in which case it would still work but will take longer time to dry the clothes. Replace the element if found defective.

It sounds as if the warter inlet valve (solinoid) isn't working and might have to be replaced. If everything else opeates fine, (unit pumps and sprays water that you added to it, pumps out and drains OK, then it is very likely the inlet valve has failed.
You can check for a blockage in the water inlet line, but unless you have a lot of sediment in your water or use a private well for your water supply, that would be a remote possibility, but worth taking a look at before buying replacement parts, etc.
You can remove the water supply hose/line and check for proper water flow and see if there is anything blocking the water from getting into the dishwasher. Many uints have a filter screen installed in them, so check that to see if it is blocked. Otherwise, look at the inlet valve and see if it is working correctly and go from there in replacing it.
One last thing, make sure the water supply line is actually providing water to the dishwasher, sometimes the water valves some installers use do get blocked, depending on how it was installed.
