It seems that not enough water is coming in. The floater is not stuck. The holes of the big revolving sprionkler seem somewhat clogged, but I cannot remove the screw to remove the part for cleaning. Someone told me to replace the inlet? valve(s). I do not have a service manual so I do not know how to go about it.

Is the floater on a dongle cord or does the floater slide up an down on a shaft? Are you saying the floater won't float? It seems if you can raise the floater up which contains the switch and it works, it should work when liquid makes the float rise. Is the sump placed low enough in the liquid to ensure the float will rise high enough to turn on?
I found that after 3 washes the flood well had enough water to activate the float switch thereby rendering the machine inoperable. What I done was drill a small hole in the plastic base well - the waster that drains out is minimal, not even noticed, but enough to keep the machine working.
I have a Samsung DMT400RHS and I started getting the low water level error ('Normal'+Heavy'+Smart Auto' LED blinking). The error started intermittently a few weeks ago, but the the last day or two the problem was solid, and simply restarting the cycle no longer worked. I looked of the code in the dishwasher user guide and it said 'low water level.' Searched the internet and located the repair manual at tradebit.com for $15. The manual was well worth the $15. The manual suggested: 1) loose level sensor connector 2) Faulty Assy case sensor or stuck floater aka 'remove foreign matter' 3) Bad Main PBA assy. Since we do 10+ loads a week for the last 18 months the stuck floater seemed to be the most likely cause. Go to Samsung DMT400RHS Low Water Level Error ('Normal'+Heavy'+Smart Auto' LED) (new link is https://photos.google.com/album/AF1QipNtp1neOR7icVG8cSs71bLpxQD5k_xljiWcJD2P click the i on each picture to see the caption - DM 04/17/2016) to see the pictures and read the captions documenting what I did. Do this at your own risk. You must turn off and disconnect the electric power and turn off the water supply before you begin.
d02 Error may have following Causes:
1-drain hose kinked or plugged
2- drain pump failure
3- accumulation of debris in filters and causing the floater positioner got stuck
if there is the flow of water through the drain hose it may that the floater inside the bath got stuck, if this is the case, remove the filters, unfasten the bolts and remove the inside cap until you can see the floater.
clean debris from inside surface of the washing machine and also clean the floater.
Try making sure filter is installed correctly. Push filter down onto foot ring. Install cartridge support on top of filter with gasket into filter and fingers up. If filter is not seated on top and bottom, debris in water will flow around the filter instead of being trapped in it.
Sounds like some thing pluging the water line or the water line pinched some where.. if the hole was 1/4 inch you should get enough water with that big of a hole. I would check the water line for a obstruction.
Let me know if this helps.
If the cycle does not stop draining that is usually because of a faulty
water level switch that controls the water level in your appliance.
The faulty sensor cause the machine to think that there is still water inside, even when water has drained completely. Check if the floating sensor is stuck or faulty. Some machine may use a membrane switch instead of a floater.
