Question about Dishwashers
SOURCE: Water Leak
dishwasher leaking might be due to either of these causes, check these:
Main tub seal
Note… If the main motor of your dishwasher is mounted vertically, beneath the center bottom
of the dishwasher, the following instructions probably apply to you.
But if your motor is mounted horizontally, the pump isn't serviceable--you need to replace the
entire pump and motor assembly.
The main tub seal is beneath the drain impeller. It prevents the water in the dishwasher from
leaking out near the shaft of the motor. To get to the seal, which is inside the dishwasher,
* Lower rack
* Spray arm support
* Wash/drain impellers
Then try the seal out of its housing and replace it.
Door gasket or seal
Over time, door gaskets and seals harden and lose their ability to seal properly.
You can't repair the seals. You need to replace them if they've begun to leak.
The water-inlet valve, itself, seldom leaks. But, the water-supply line from the house and the
rubber tube leading from the valve to the inside of the dishwasher may leak. Tighten
or repair/replace these as necessary.
The water-inlet valve could mechanically stick open. When that happens, the water continues
to flow into the dishwasher, which then floods your kitchen. Turn off the water supply to the
dishwasher, and replace the valve.
Behind the lower access panel on your dishwasher are several rubber or plastic hoses. If the
leak appears at a connection, try a new clamp. If that doesn't work, replace the hose.

SOURCE: no water coming into dishwasher
There are a couple of things to check. First we will start with the water level float. Open the door and on the floor of the washer, left side, front you will see what looks like a large cap. This is the water level float that tells the dishwasher how much water is in the bottom of the unit.
Check and see if you can push it down closer to the floor. If it is stuck in the up position, the washer "think" it is full of water and will not allow any more in. If it seems to be all the way down, pull it up and out to make sure the stem is not broken or it looks damaged in any way. Check the float chamber for debris or anything that looks like it doesn't belong.
Clean the assembly and chamber as necessary.
Let me know.

Had the same problem with my 12 year old LS609. The cycle knob sits on top of what Ariston calls the control board. This control board is most likely to be your problem. It was in my case.

You either have a food or glass particle lodged in the wash motor impeller not letting it turn or more likely the wash motor capacitor needs replacement.
I suggest getting a repairer as the Aristons are tricky to repair.
