That is a indication of a bad timer the timer is the nob that u turn to make it run drop door down take off the top six screws on the door from the inside then pull off the knob then there will be two screws behind nob and the time should come right out then once u get the new time pull off wires one by one to make sure u putt when in the same place
This would mean that the dishwashers water valve has failed. This is a simple repair to make yourself. The lower access panel would need to be removed, four screws. You can purchase the part from the link below.

It's most likely that the filters in your dishwasher are blocked, the best way to clean them is to remove the filters from the bottom of the dishwasher, place them in the racks and run through the hottest wash cycle. It also helps to have a dishwasher cleaner inside the machine at the same time, these are available from most places that sell the dishwasher powder.
The same thing happens with my dishwasher. I have made it work by doing the following. When you start up the cycle, turn the dial to just a tick before "start." If you hear the buzzing, but no water is running, unlock and then lock the dishwasher door again. This usually gets it running. If it's still not running water, unlock, advance the dial a little bit, and lock again. This should work. You need to be around for the early parts of the dishwashing cycle because this machine tends to stop up and buzz without running water until it gets past "short wash." Every time this happens, do the same thing, unlock and lock, and advance the dial a little when necessary. Once you get past "short wash," it should complete the wash without intervention.
I asked for help when the dishwasher (GE 1991) started up and then quit. Your site was useful as we found a priority list of things to check, thus saving much time and confusion. Our problem turned out to be a disconnected ground wire.
Thanks for the help. You probably saved us a couple of hundred dollars for a repairman. We intend to replace the dishwasher next year when the kitchen is renovated so the timing was important.
I had the same problem. Turn the HIGH TEMP buttons off. Simply turning them off corrected this problem for me. Mine got stuck in two places and I had to manually turn the dials or the washer would run all night.
First off.. the pump does not let water in.. it takes water from your sink faucette via the hose and allows it to enter the DW via an inlet electrically operated valve. If that valve is not commanded by the control system to open, then no water will enter the DW and a wash cycle will not start. Please find the informaton shown below that decribes some reasons why your DW may not be filling with water. You should go thru this series of checks to make sure you've set up the DW correctly aqnd it is not in mid cycle.If by chance you are setting it up correctly and are not in mid cycle then you may have a hardware problem with the system. I would be happy to assist you if it comes to that but I am hoping that the information below will get you started,...

Dishwasher - No Water Fill
Often the cause of a dishwasher not filling at the start of its cycle is not electrical or mechanical. Often times you may be starting your dishwasher model incorrectly which results in the machine skipping its first water fill period.
There are presently three different types of starting procedures being used:
Pushbutton type. This system is found on all POTSCRUBBER models.
"Turn-to-start" timer type. After latching the dishwasher door, you turn the timer dial until you hear a click. By advancing the timer dial beyond that point, its possible that the first water fill would be skipped. The first fill is necessary for automatic pre-rinsing of the dishes.

The most common type is a "push-to-start" timer dial. All that is required to initiate the cycle is to push in on the timer dial. It is NOT necessary to turn the dial.
Without the manufacturer and model number, it is very hard to help much. If this dishwasher is several years old, this may be the beginning of many, many problems so you may want to consider replacing the entire dishwasher.
It you want to attempt a repair, you start with removing the door panel screws around and near the door gasket. When you get it open, take some pictures of what you see. Closeups to hep you reassemble.
Zero in on the rinse agent dispenser reservoir and look for leaks. Identify what has failed and order either locally or on line.
