Question about Washing Machines
Machine does not start as it should, on start it should add water but only a noise is heard but no water. I have added water manually and then it seems to run the full cycle adding water later by itself as it should. It however starts leaking water almost three quarters of the cycle further from the bottom somewhere. Some assistance will be appreciated.

SOURCE: dishwasher not starting cycle
aslav...Does it do anything at all and how do you know it has power? Find and turn the breaker fully off and then on to reset it.
You don't say how old the unit is. If it has a mechanical timer, is it one you can turn? If so, turn it. If it starts to do something...this gives you an idea what's happening. Try a different cycle.
The first things a timer 'authorizes' in a dishwasher are: water in and start of pump motor. If neither is happening and power is on to the connection under the unit (use a voltage tester you get from the hardware store), then replace the timer. My bet: no power.

If you are still trying to sort out this issue try the following.
From what you say then it is most likely the aqua sensor on the side of the dishwasher. The gurgling sounds that you hear are likely the drain pump running and the un-drainable water sloshing in the sump.
Verify that there is actually water going to the dishwasher( Basic step but often overlooked)
Next the inlet valve will have to be checked. This is the part where the water line from the house connects to the dishwasher, under the toe/kick panel. Remove power from the dishwasher. Disconnect the dishwasher electrical connections (2 wires) to the inlet valve and connect it (carefully to 110 V power) using a jumper wire. With 110V power the valve should open and water will flow into the dishwasher, if not then the fault is in the inlet valve.
If this checks fine then the fault is likely in the aqua sensor...
On the outer left side (viewed from front) there is a panel, Behind this panel there is a small clear(of light blue) plastic mechanism with hoses and wires attached( There is usually a yellow disk at the top about 6cm in diameter) this is a float and sensor assembly there is tells the control the water level and works as an emergency drain if there is an issue. There will be a red stick protruding downward to the base and a Styrofoam float on which the stick rests. This is a pan overflow sensor if the stick is too high the unit will go into drain and cut off the fill valve power. The yellow disk is a diaphragm which senses water height. This unit can become stuck with wear and hard water.

To fix your draining problem you need to check the air gap(if you have one) , check if there is voltage going to your drain pump during the draining cycle. If there is voltage coming to your water pump and the dishwasher is still not draining then the problem could be a clogged drain hose, a clogged air gap or a bad drain pump. if there is no voltage detedcted on the drain pump during the drain cycle, then it could be a water level-switch/solonioed , wiring, or a control board problem.

I found this post on another website. Hope it helps:
"Six torx screws securing the fine mesh filter just below the lower spray arm. Make sure they're all tight. Bit size is T 20 also, check for damage to the mesh screen. What happens when those screws are loose is water pressure seeps under and creates a tidal wave sort of effect by spraying water forward instead of thru spray arm...long shot, but I've seen it 50 times."

SOURCE: Dishwasher leaks water
dishwasher leaking might be due to either of these causes, check these:
Main tub seal
Note… If the main motor of your dishwasher is mounted vertically, beneath the center bottom
of the dishwasher, the following instructions probably apply to you.
But if your motor is mounted horizontally, the pump isn't serviceable--you need to replace the
entire pump and motor assembly.
The main tub seal is beneath the drain impeller. It prevents the water in the dishwasher from
leaking out near the shaft of the motor. To get to the seal, which is inside the dishwasher,
* Lower rack
* Spray arm support
* Wash/drain impellers
Then try the seal out of its housing and replace it.
Door gasket or seal
Over time, door gaskets and seals harden and lose their ability to seal properly.
You can't repair the seals. You need to replace them if they've begun to leak.
The water-inlet valve, itself, seldom leaks. But, the water-supply line from the house and the
rubber tube leading from the valve to the inside of the dishwasher may leak. Tighten
or repair/replace these as necessary.
The water-inlet valve could mechanically stick open. When that happens, the water continues
to flow into the dishwasher, which then floods your kitchen. Turn off the water supply to the
dishwasher, and replace the valve.
Behind the lower access panel on your dishwasher are several rubber or plastic hoses. If the
leak appears at a connection, try a new clamp. If that doesn't work, replace the hose.
