Question about Dishwashers
Since water doesn't drain out ,it could be a clogged in the drain line. Often the problem is at the point where the drain line attaches to the garbage disposer or household drain line. You should remove this line and clear it form any debris in the hose or the hose connection. Be sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher again. Good luck!

Either it's not getting enough water to flip over to the next part of it's cycle (unlikely) or the water float gauge is not working properly.
When the dishwasher is cool, look for the float inside the dishwasher --usually a small plastic dome or cylinder mounted inside at the tub's base, near the front. When you move most types of floats up and down, you can hear them click because they trip a lever (they are spring loaded). Lift out the float mechanism and clean around the float tube; many floats must be disconnected from below--to do this you'll have to remove the lower access panel. Rinse off the float, then replace it in the tube and be sure it moves up and down freely.
If you're experienced with minor repair work shut off the hot water valve to the appliance. Locate the water intake valve, behind the dishwasher's bottom front panel, disassemble the valve to reveal the screen, clean debris from the screen, and reassemble. If the screen doesn't appear to be blocked, call a repairperson (they will probably need to replace the water intake valve).
If none of this helps, call a repair person. Any of several parts, including water inlet valve, pressure switch, and the timer or selector switch, may be faulty.

SOURCE: Dishwasher won't start
How old is this dishwasher and the complete model number is?
You said, you have a Kenmore Ultra Wash dishwasher, and you have power running to it, but when you shut the door on it...it still won't start a cycle. Does it have a reset button on it? Any ideas on a solution?
Yes, you may try this to reset the system.
Go to the breaker and switch it off for 5 minutes and the on and try it. It usually resets the systems.
Let me know ho it goes. Huuum
Do not forget to leave a rating.

If it's under warranty, get someone to look at it. Probably a bad switch or sensor in the unit, could be something simple, and they're not hard to open up, but the soap dispenser mechanism has to be reassembled (it often falls apart upon taking the door apart). Last resort is the appliance serviceman. New house? New dishwasher? Warranty? That's your best option.

Tips for a great answer:
It is possible that the
machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors or feedback from
the inputs. For the program to start up the main program controller must
initiate the INLET/PUMP MOTOR/DRAIN to work
when it is commanded .If this does not happen then the voltage at these
points must be checked or the fault
relates to no voltage/drive from the controller. This means the controller is a
to remove the control panel: http://www.espares.co.uk/advice/dishwashers/a/3/1287/how-to-replace-a-hotpoint-dishwasher-fascia-p.html
water flows then the flow should be good, if not the inlet valve is bad or there
is dirt in the filter. Also check the flow at the inlet of the water line. What
is most important for the motor to start functioning is that the door switch
must be ON when the door is shut or this will be an error for starting the
motor. The water pressure must be good and the spraying must be seen to be
good. If there is low pumping or pressure then the spray arms will not turn
around to inject with pressure. If so
the pump must be checked for clogging.
check this link:
after the wash the drain valve will be activated, the water is allowed to come
in to rinse and then finally the drain valve/pump activated so as to drain off
all the water.
that a fault in any of the cycle will relate to the specified action, so check
the command from the program module and then the executing device be it the
valve or motor or pump.

Hi - The issue may lie with the door latch; a door switch is used to start and stop your dishwasher. It's a safety feature that won't allow water to flow with the door open. With a faulty door switch, there is a chance your dishwasher won't start at all. Dishwasher door switches are about an inch long. They are usually black but can be red. There are metal prongs on the body of the switch called terminals. Some door switches have two terminals and some have three. If your door switch is OK, check the timer assembly. This controls when and how long power is sent to other controls on your dishwasher. If these controls don't receive power, they won't work. The timer assembly contains a motor. Check this motor as well. It is often cheaper just to replace the timer motor rather than the complete assembly. My last suggestion is to check the cycle selector switches. These switches indicate cycles for washing, drying, and setting the temperature of the water. If one of your switches is the problem your dishwasher may not start. Dishwasher cycle selector switches tell the timer which cycle to run by opening and closing electrical circuits. Most selector switches are six to eight inches long. They are usually black and have terminals. By testing each one of these parts with an ohmmeter you should be able to determine why your dishwasher is not working. It is possible for other parts to fail but these are the most common parts to check. If any proves to be ineffective, I strongly suggest contacting a professional to move forward accurately.
