Everything seems ok... lights, etc., but after door lock has gone off and on for adding extra clothes, I can hear a clicking - but no water. We had a repair person out a couple of weeks ago for the same problem - he said it was because the door was not latching correctly and fixed it.... but, he didn't tell us how. Now, two weeks later same problem and it's Saturday and the repair shop is not open... Any suggestions?

Randall, the high speed spin failure can be caused by a number of issues. I would suggest starting the machine without any clothes in it. Once it has filled, make sure the door lock light is on and that the door is, in fact, locked. If the light is not on, or if the door is not actually locked, either the door lock assembly or the control panel is at fault.
If the light is on and the door is locked, stop the wash cycle and start a drain and spin cycle to see if all of the water is pumped out of the drum. All water should be pumped out within 10-15 seconds. If excess water is in the drum, the high speed spin will not start.
is it the tub that clunks?was it very noisy in the spin cycle?if so the spider gear is gone and it would be cheaper to replace the washer.you should only be adding two tablespoons of soap that's it,alot of people use to much soap and it eats at the spider gear,if you look inside the tub at the back wall you'll see a piece sign,that's the gear located on the back of the tub
usually when you start the dishwasher, you should hear the inlet water valve operate and let water in. The wash motor cuts in much later. If you do not hear the motor but everything else seems to be ok then the motor has burnt out. But if you hear nothing once you press the start button, then it is likely the cycle is not starting as the door is not locked. This could mean either the door switch is faulty or the latch is not engaging the door switch. It might help to please clarify the situation as above and also provide model number of dishwasher.
try fuse on plug this may be gone, also the door interlock switch, try a light bang with fist near door catch see if this will do it, what i do suspect is the door inerlock is faulty, this is a safety device which locks the door when machine is in washig/spinning mode it aso stops machine working when you open the door, this is also a safety device, good luck al. xxxx
Check the wall inlet to see if water comes freely; then check if the inlet valves behind your machine to see they are not clogged.
Best that u open the valve full before you begin your wash. The water coming 3 inches/door is normal.
Dont try opening the door until after you hear a click or aft 2 or three minutes aft wash cycle completes.
