Question about GE Dishwashers
It sounds like a bad solenoid valve. Shut off the water to the dishwasher and disconnect the water supply line at the dishwasher. Caution, there will be water there...
Open the water supply valve and try to pass water through the line into a container. If you get water there, the solenoid valve is needing attention. make sure that there isnt bebris in the solenoid valve. Make sure that the wires are fully connected. If they are, and the valve was clear, I'd test or replace the valve. This is the most likely fault. If this didn't fix the problem, look into the float switch, making sure that it operated correctly.

It is possible that the
machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors or feedback from
the inputs. For the program to start up the main program controller must
initiate the INLET/PUMP MOTOR/DRAIN to work
when it is commanded .If this does not happen then the voltage at these
points must be checked or the fault
relates to no voltage/drive from the controller. This means the controller is a
to remove the control panel: http://www.espares.co.uk/advice/dishwashers/a/3/1287/how-to-replace-a-hotpoint-dishwasher-fascia-p.html
water flows then the flow should be good, if not the inlet valve is bad or there
is dirt in the filter. Also check the flow at the inlet of the water line. What
is most important for the motor to start functioning is that the door switch
must be ON when the door is shut or this will be an error for starting the
motor. The water pressure must be good and the spraying must be seen to be
good. If there is low pumping or pressure then the spray arms will not turn
around to inject with pressure. If so
the pump must be checked for clogging.

Finally after the wash the drain valve will be activated, the water is allowed to come in to rinse and then finally the drain valve/pump activated so as to drain off all the water.
