Tips for a great answer:
I experienced the same problem. One day the lights on the unit weren't on. The wall outlet that the dishwasher uses had power because the Garbage Disposal that also uses the same outlet had power. Turns out the power supply cord also tied to the water supply hose and had over the months (due to the constant slapping or dancing of the water hose whenever the electrically controlled water valve was opened or closed), had caused the female receptor prong inside the wall outlet to loose continuity with the male prong of the dishwasher power cord. It might have been a defective wall plug all along but the wall outlet worked for months before the problem arose. Anyway, after replacing the wall outlet the dishwasher again has lights and works fine.

The water-inlet valve lets water enter the machine. Make sure it's not clogged. There is a screen on the inside of the valve, this sometimes gets clogged up with debris. Check to see if you get power to valve when unit is put into operation may take a couple minutes to start a fill. If you have power and it's not clogged up replace the valve .If you have no power to the water inlet valve check float switch. This can be done by checking the continuity. Here is a video checking the water inlet valve and the float switch. It may be a different model but the testing procedure will be the same. You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations for most models. All parts come with installation instructions.
