Question about Whirlpool Dishwashers
Tofigure this out you will need to remove the cover plate at the very bottom front of the dishwasher. Behind there you will see where the water hooks to the dishwasher. Take that hose off and make sure you have water there. Then check for a screen where the hose hooks up. It may be plugged right there.
Then If you have an electric tester check for voltage at the two wires on the valve that the hose hooks to. If you have voltage going to there the valve is bad. Replace the valve and you will be set. If there is no vaoltage then you have problems with a relay in the control panel. You will need to trace back and find out the problem there. That can be very difficult to do.
My bet is that either the screen/hole at the valve is plugged or the solenoid valve is bad.

When the Dishwasher won't fill you'll need to check for the water inlet hose, the water inlet valve and the float switch assembly. When the water fills your dishwasher, a float rises along with it. As the float reaches a certain threshold level, it shuts off the flow of water, thereby preventing a leak. Sometimes the float can get stuck in the wrong position in your dishwasher, and it can prevent your dishwasher from filling. Sometimes it can happen due to float valve and on other occasions due to float switch. Inspect the water hose coming to the dishwasher for any blockages. If the hose is not clogged then check the water inlet valve for any clogs, if the water will not even fill for few seconds then certainly the water inlet valve is bad and should be replaced. You can also use a multimeter to check continuity on inlet valve. If you don't get any value on the multimeter then you'll need to replace the water inlet valve assembly. However, if the valve is fine then the float switch assembly should be replaced. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.
