Question about Whirlpool Dishwashers
Possible that the inlet valve , the level sensors are faulty, Most likely that the water level sensors are not reacting and cutting off the inlet valve unless the water level pressure comes in with the addition of the water into the chamber.
You must check the pressure switch of the level sensor, the connections to the program sensor , remove and flush the inlet valve from all dirt and reset.

The problem is in the water inlet system. See this diagram.
My opinion is the float system is playing up. This is stuck in dry condition and tells the controller it is full. So it stops taking water. But when you pour water manually, it frees up and start working normally which means the water inlet valve lets water in.
You may have to replace the float or press it a few times to ease the sticky spring.
Hope this helps. Please rate the solution if you found the solution helpful otherwiwe please post a comment.

Tips for a great answer:
SENSING Page 5
When the START/PAUSE/Unlock Lid is pressed, the washer will first perform a self-test on the lid lock mechanism. You will hear a click, the basket will make a slight turn, and the lid will unlock briefly before locking again. Once the lid has locked the second time, the washer will use short, slow spins to estimate the load size. These sensing spins may take 2 to 3 minutes before water is added to the load and you may hear the hum of these spins. If the sensing light is on, then washer is working properly. You will hear the motor turn the basket in short pulses to thoroughly wet the load. The washer will then move the load briefly, pause to allow water to soak in to the load, and resume adding water. This process may repeat until the correct amount of water has been added for the load. You may also hear water flowing through the dispenser, adding detergent to the load.
NOTE: Avoid opening the lid during sensing. The sensing process will start over when the washer is restarted. The sensing light may also come on during the Soak and Wash portions of the cycle. This is normal.
If there's no water, then Page 13
Washer won't run or fill, washer stops working, or wash light remains on (indicating that the washer was unable to fill appropriately)
Check for proper water supply.
Both hoses must be attached and have water flowing to
Both hot and cold water faucets must be turned on.
Check that inlet valve screens have not become clogged.
Check for any kinks in inlet hoses, which can restrict water flow.
Or you have an inlet valve that is not working

|Samsung Washer Fault Codes|
|4E||WATER SUPPLY ERROR||Water Supply Error occurs when water level frequency does not show changes more than 100Hz or water is not supplied up to the preset water level after 10 Minutes or more at the time of initial water supply. The error status can be cleared by turning the POWER switch OFF and back ON.|
|5E||WATER DRAIN ERROR||5E is displayed if the water level frequency detected is 25 KHz or less in the initial phase of the UNB -detecting cycle. The Water Drainerror can be cleared by turning POWER SW OFF and back ON.|
|oE||OVER-FLOW ERROR||Over-Flow error occurs when the water level is too high. It can be cleared by turning POWER switch OFF. Water is drained prior to POWER switch OFF. The tub is drained for 2 minutes if a frequency of more than 25 KHz is detected.|
Laundry load is unbalanced, manually loosen any tangled laundry.
If only one item of clothing needs washing, such as a bathrobe or jeans, the final spin result might be unsatisfactory and an UE error message will be shown in the display. Unbalance error is cleared by POWER switch OFF and back ON.
|HE||WATER HEATER ERROR||HE, HE1 is displayed if the water temperature rises by 7 C or more in 1 Min or by 2 C or less 20 Min after heating process has started. The error can be cleared by turning POWER switch OFF.|
|1 E||WATER PRESSURE SWITCH ERROR||
* Generated Frequency Signal of WATER LEVEL (WIL) SIW (KHz)
Normal Level = Abnormal W/L Frequency
Low Level = 30.00 Khz High Level = 15.00 Khz
If the same signal is detected for more than 5 seconds, it is aPRESSURE SWITCH Error. When this error occurs the drain pump will operate for 3 min. and the display will show 1 E indicating a pressure switch error.
|cE||ABNORMAL WATER TEMPERATURE ERROR||
e.g. If the water temperature is 50 C or more, during a Delicate or Wool cycle.
At the time of initial water supply, if the water temperature is not appropriate, the display will show cE. This error can be cleared by POWER SWITCH OFF.
|11 E||WATER LEAKAGE ERROR||Water Leakage error occurs when the water drains naturally, (by leakage) after the washing program starts.|
|tE||THERMISTOR ERROR||This error occurs when the Thermistor circuit is abnormal or a voltage of O.2v or below or, 4.5v and over is detected. This error can be cleared by POWER switch OFF.|
|3E||MOTOR RESTRICTION ERROR||
Hall Sensor is sensed every 5OOms. 1 second after motor starts to work.
If data of hall sensor is less than 2 (2RPM), the Washing motor will stop at once.
During Washing and Rinsing when a motor restriction is sensed, the motor stops and then proceeds to the next water -flow action. If the motor stops working and this happens in one direction ten times, "3E" Error is displayed.
During dehydrating. when a motor restriction is sensed. the motor stops working and then returns to the initial stage of the dehydration unbalance sensing cycle. After ten times, "3E" Error isdisplayed, When the motor Is told to stop because of an operating function. no error is shown.
Power 81W OFF can clear the motor restriction error.
|8E||OVER CURRENT ERROR||
IPM fault signal (this is caused by the overload of the MICOM INTO during motor action).
IPM: Integrated power module. The IPM controls the motor.
If the fault (low signal) happens to be sensed even once during the washing/rinsing stage, the motor stops immediately. However, during the dehydrating stage the signal is to be sensed, when the number of signals reads more than 6 per 500ms during the Washing or Rinsing cycle action.
If the motor stops working, in one direction ten times, "8E" Error is displayed.
During dehydrating, when the overload is sensed, the motor stops working at once and then feeds back to the initial stage of the dehydration unbalance sensing. When the feed back has occcurred twice, Error "8E" is displayed during the dehydrating unbalance sensing, No error happens by overload sensing. When it happens at more than 800rpm, the process is stopped compulsorily. Power Switch OFF can clear the overload error.
