Check your drain line it should run to your sink or disposal if it is too low it may siphon out the water as fast as it fills if that is the case strap it up as to cause a loop (inverted Trap) if this is not it i will need model # and rand to go futher

I believe the Float Switch has been activated, do the following:
- Tilt the dishwasher back 35 Degrees. - Keep it there until water stops running out the side (If any) - Then tilt the dishwasher forward 35 Degrees - Keep it there until water stops running out the side (If any)
This should empty water trapped in the lower part of the Dishwasher, and deactivate the float switch.

Built in Warning!
To avoid personal injury or even death, always disconnect your
appliance from its power source--that is, unplug it or break the
connection at the circuit breaker or fuse box--before you do any
troubleshooting or repair work on your appliance. Also, because some
components may have sharp edges, use caution while working on your
Don't know the history of your machine, sounds like possibly the hot water supply valve under your sink is turned off. To check this go under your kitchen sink and inspect water supply valves, (right side cold water) left side hot water valve feeds the machine. Vertical water line is for sink above, there should be a second water line coming off this valve that has its own on/off knob. Make sure this knob is turned on, (counterclockwise)if not sure turn it to the right (clockwise)till stops, then to the left till it stops. This allows hot water to enter dish machine. If valve is on and line is ok, there might be a kink in the line behind the dish machine or a restriction (clog) in the water line. May need to unplug machine and unsecure it to pull it out for inspection. Good luck,best regards.
Check whether water is flowing into the machine. Disconnect and check the water flow at the machine connecting end. This is user serviceable portion and no special tools required. Check the strainer submerged in to the small pipe on the machine body. Clean if blocked.
To ease matters further pour water into the wash chamber manually to a required level. Run the machine. if OK only your incoming water problem.
Finally check the inlet solenoid valve & its associated circuitry if problem persists. Take help through the authorized service provider.
Hi I am Vortash it sounds like your vacum sensor has gone .. this is the device that tells the machine how much water it has in it , should this fail it sometimes confuses the machine into thinking it is full of water and is actually a very common fault with dishwashers and washing machines . So it carries on and does a full cycle thinking it is washing but has no water . If it was just the water feed solenoid the vacum would not allow the machine to run , but if the vacum is faulty it stops the feed from opening and allowing water in .
Another possibility is that your program panel has gone and requires replacement .. but I would try the vacum first as this would be the far cheaper option first ... Regards Vortash
Hi I am vortash it sounds like this is a water level switch ( vacum ) problem it is telling the machine there is water in and the machine carries on and doesn't open the flow valve to put the water in .. as it thinks it is full . or the controller is faulty and need s repalcing .. try replacing the level control first as this would be cheaper than the programer.. Regards Vortash
It is normal to have 4 or 5 inches of water inside the dishwasher unless you remove the stand-pipe (located inside, front right side). This pipe should be removed at least once a day and the dishwasher should be drained. Don't forget to turn the power off first.
To avoid the wait, increase the incoming watertemperature before turning on the dishwasher. Do that by running thekitchen sink faucet until the water runs hot. Or increase thetemperature of the hot water to the entire house at the hot waterheater.
Warning! To lessen the risk of scalding, don't set the hot water heater temperature higher than 120 degrees Fahrenheit.
