Question about Dishwashers
Sounds like you will have to replace the fill valve.
Part number can be researched on the Internet by make and model number - can get the part from usually any appliance repair shop depending on the make.
To remove - shut off water - unscrew the kick panel and you will see a valve with a hose coming from a water source (usually blue or yellow or whiteish) - need screwdriver (for the screw holding it in place), pliers and towels to do the job.

Float valve is not used in normal cycle, it is a failsafe method. Energy conservation issues dictated less water during washing.

Did you check that you have a good water supply to the water valve....there may be a restriction upstream...
Also... is there 120v for sure at the valve? and how long is the voltage supplied to the valve... the control/circuit board may be bad...
Also check the float that tells the valve to shut off... it could be full of old food particles and be giving a false reading of the water level...
These are a few of the things that I would check next...
