Make sure the incoming water temp is 120 degress or above and be sure that you restored flow at the angle stop. If you turned off power at the breaker box, make sure it's restored as well. If it's hooking up to a garbage disposal that did not orginally have a dishwasher, you need to knock out the plastic cap at the bypass pipe.

My Kitchen Aid Refrigerator model KFCS22EVMS8 is leaking water . I was told that I should clean the drain pipe. How can I clean it and stop the leak? Thanks

The drain is plugged up from ice and debris that comes off the food in the normal process of working. You may have to remove the back panel in the freezer and pour hot water in the drain area at the rear bottom if the freezer under the coils. After thawing the ice it would be a good idea to run a short piece of 1/4 inch plastic hose, maybe about 18" or so, down the drain to push any debris through the hose. Flush it out well with hot water and this should be good for several years.

Kitchen Aid Imperial 21 has loud motor noise duing wash cycle

loud motor noises during the wash cycle usually come from a water pump. Either the water pump will stop working soon, or it will keep working for a while longer, and the unit will stop cleaning. Sometimes the pump will stop making the noise for a while before it stops.
