Question about Dishwashers
Hi, Welcome to FixYa. I'll start by saying your description sounds exactly like a symptom of a faulty control board on Asko dishwasher's...specifically the relay responsible for energizing the fill valve. It sounds to me like the relay itself is receiving power, but then immediately failing which manifest in the manner you describe...water valve energized for a second then nothing. At the stage you seem to be at I would suggest removing the door panel and observing the relay ( they are clear so you can visually see the contacts open & close ) the wiring diagram should identify the inlet relay as "K3" or "K4" I don't recall off hand and I don't have the schematic in front of me. Let me know what you observe or if you require further assistance and I will try and be available asap. P.S. It could also simply be a poor wire connection on the board, power switch or door switch so check thoroughly. Good luck. Macmarkus :)

Please follow the bellow suggestions…
Turn off the water supply to the machine, both hot & cold. Remove the cold-water hose from the back of the machine. Put the "machine end" of the hose in a bucket, in a sink, or drain (somewhere for the water to go!). Turn back on the cold water, and see if water really is getting through the hose. Turn the water back off. If you're not getting any water out of the hose, call a plumber.
If the above said suggestion is not the issue then look at the water inlet valve (where the hoses were screwed to the back of the machine), and check for any rust, lint, limescale, or anything else that could be blocking the flow of water. If yes, clean the mesh screens, reattach the hoses, and turn the water back onPlease check the link….
The water inlet can fail, and is a fairly easy part to replace. On the back of your machine, there should be a sticker with the model and serial numbers on it. Write down those numbers, and call Sears / Kenmore (or an appliance parts & repair store) for prices and information about the water inlet valve. They (especially Sears) should also be able to give you a schematic and some instructions on how to remove and replace the water inlet valve, but if you're fairly handy -- it might be just as easy for you to look at how the old one comes out, so you can put the new one in.
Let us know if you have something more to know else accept the suggestion.
Thank You for contacting Fixya.com
