Look for shut off valve corrosion. Next check fill solenoid valve under unit. Screen could be plugged from water hardness minerals.

Should be valves under your sink for the faucet. #1
Make sure they are opened up enough.
If either device is new, they should support this issue.
Old plumbing can also cause this. Build up in the lines.
They can only be replaced to fix. Some water heaters have adjustable valves, make sure if you have them they are opened as needed. Remember, too low flow can cause over heated water.

Turn on dishwasher hear noise solenoid clicks water valve works but no force of water to turn tines and no clean.

Sounds like you may have a bad solenoid valve. you can check this by opening line that feeds the valve to see if you have sufficient water flow. GET SOME TOWELS READY THIS MAY GET A LITTLE MESSY!
  1. turn off the water valve that feeds the dishwasher.
  2. remove the line to the dishwasher solenoid valve.
  3. slowly turn water back on that feeds the dishwasher.
  4. verify sufficient water pressure flows onto the towels.

Check the accumulator housing. This is the dome over the pump below the lower spray arm. Over time a slot can be carved through the dome by the pressure from the water pump, which vastly reduces the pressure that is normally diverted up to the top spray arm.

Battery won't hold charge

The battery should be taken out for a long drive or put on a charger for a few hours to determine if it is dead or not. a few minutes with the engine running will not let the battery recover sufficiently.
Check the water level in the battery, ensure the water covers the plates but is below the rings.
If you have done this, then the battery has probably sulfated and will need to be replaced.

Can't really supply a solution, mine has done this since Christmas. Mine seems to be related to the volume of water taken(or indeed not) into the machine. I have resorted to chucking a bowl of water into the bottom at the start (after the initial draining cycle) of the programme and during the rinse. Not exactly automatic & I can't imagine it will do the pump much good flogging it without a sufficient prime, however it works for me. I'll keep an eye to see if a more substantive fix comes along. Best wishes.
