I have the same machine (D3350) and almost the same problem.
Mine starts each cycle fine - pumps out - fills - rinses - pumps out tht first load and then does not fill again. If I manually fill with a bottle (about 2 litres) for each subsequent cycle then it washes as well as it ever did.
Seeing it fills once it cannot be the water supply, nor the solenoid that operate the water supply. So, my guess is the control panel.
Like you I would love to simply take advantage of the PC Upgradeable featurewshich seemed so attractive at the time of pruchase.
First, are you sure that the machine is not filling?
I go on calls all the time for this problem and it turns out than the machine fills but the wash motor does not run.This leaves soap in the bottom of the DW so it looks like it did not fill with water. This is a common problem in dishwashers that have not been run for a few months, and is quite common after a remodel. If it IS getting water, the motor is probably stuck. If it is Not getting water the first step is to locate the "over fill" float inside the dishwasher. This will be a round sort of mushroom looking thing on the floor of the machine near the door on the right or left. Make sure it moves freely up and down. It will only move about 1/4 inch but If it is stuck up, the machine will not fill. If float is O.K. then check the water source. Turn of water to DW. Remove the kickplate under DW door and disconnect the waterline from fill valve (should be on front left side of unit). Run waterline into bucket then turn on the water. If you don't get water call your plumber. If you get water then you need to check the fill valve. Connect a volt meter to the 2 wires on the fill valve. Start DW. First the diswasher should start draining, then it will start filling. At this point (a few minutes into the cycle) you should see 120v AC at the fill valve. If you do see 120v Ac, replace the valve. If you don't , then turn off the machine and check the float switch. This is located under the DW right under the mushroom thingy. The switch should have continuity when the DW is empty. If there is no continuity then replace the switch.
This doe seem that the anti flood system has triggered. This device puts the machiene in pump out mode and shuts off the input water supply.
The device is a safety device that triggers once it detects a water leak (pipe / clamp) and consists of a polystireene float and micro switch at the floor of the washer. First check to see if the float has activated the micro switch and then dry the machiene floor and check for leaks.
The micro switch is bad. I had the same problem cleaned the switch a few time (nd bought some time) but in the end I moved a switch from a cycle we did not use to the start position. Cost was nothing but my time (must have skills in soldering PCB assy). Worked fine since, almost a year now. However I have had several unrelated problems and would thing twice before putting any major money into this unit. In the 3 years I;'ve had this unit I've fixed the switch, installed a new pump assy and put in 2 thermal switches (unit appears dead when they go bad). I've done all this myself and the bills would be between $700 nad $1,000 to call service.
The pump may be clogged or the motor start capacitor may be bad or the fill switch may be stuck or the timer may be bad. Fill the dishwasher by hand to just below the door level and close it then see if it will run. If it then runs correctly the problem may be the fill switch. If not, it could be the motor, the cap, or the timer
