Check two things:
-Follow the hot water pipe from the dishwasher back to the place it connects to the wall. There should be a valve there. Make sure that it remains open. (very common for it to get closed but not noticed.)
-If the hot water supply valve is good/open, you should next consider the solenoid valve that controls when the water enters the dishwasher. It is located just past where the fill pipe connects to the dishwasher.
Please report back what you find of if you have further questions. OK?

Have you checked the inlet filters on the water hoses ?
If you unscrew the water hoses from the machine, and look inside the connections on the machine, you should see the filters - they are usually a plastic "cage" supporting a gauze or fine mesh. These can be pulled out (you may need tweezers or fine nosed pliers) and washed under a running tap.
If this doesnt cure it, check that the water supplies where the hoses connect to your house plumbing are actually fully on and flowing properly, and as yours is a built in model, that when the machine is pushed back in to it's housing the water hoses are not being kinked or trapped to the point the water cant flow properly.
Otherwise, there is probably a fault with the solenoid valve(s) on the machine that controls the flow of water in to your machine.

Have you checked the float switch inside the dishwasher. It is usually covered by a plastic piece that you have to unscrew, then after you take that off, the float will just be sitting inside of a small hole. Make sure that it is clean of all debris and build up. You can check how well it works by messing with it. Hope this helps.
