Question about Dishwashers
When you turn on the dishwasher there is no water
9 times out of 10, when this happens, the fill valve has gone bad. Thats the little valve with 2 wires that your inlet waterline attaches to. They are inexpensive to buy and easy to install. You normally don't even need to pull the dishwasher out. To test the dishwasher before you go to the trouble, pour a bucket of hot water into the dishwasher and turn it on. You'll have to wait a couple of minutes before it will turn on. If it works properly spraying the water around inside, then it's just a bad fill valve.

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.
