It seems like it goes through the rest of the motions but when it's fill time it makes a kinda rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr sound. I looked inside where I could but I don't see any obvious obstructions...Any help is appreciated!!

The buzzing sound when it tries to fill is probably the water valve. You either have a problem in the plumbing so no water is getting to the machine, trash or rust clogging the water valve inlet, or the water valve has failed and needs to be replaced.
Remove the kick plate at the bottom of the machine and you will see your water valve, it will have the water supply line hooked to it.
Post back with the complete model number from the dishwasher if you need more help. Work is very busy right now and I am not able to be online very much but I will reply as soon as I can.
Thanks, Mike

Dishwasher won't fill with water


Hi

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.
