The very first thing to check is the float inside the tub. Most of them look like a mushroom in one of the front corners. Raise it up and drop it back down. It should move easily and you should hear a slight click as it sets back down. It is common for the float to get knocked out of place by something sticking through the rack when you pull the rack out.
Post back and let me know if this helps or not and we will check other things if needed.

    Just wanted to follow up on your dishwasher and see what you found out.

    Thanks/Mike

My whirlpool dishwasher wont get water to it when I press start

Hi

When the Dishwasher won't fill you'll need to check for the water inlet hose, the water inlet valve and the float switch assembly. When the water fills your dishwasher, a float rises along with it. As the float reaches a certain threshold level, it shuts off the flow of water, thereby preventing a leak. Sometimes the float can get stuck in the wrong position in your dishwasher, and it can prevent your dishwasher from filling. Sometimes it can happen due to float valve and on other occasions due to float switch. Inspect the water hose coming to the dishwasher for any blockages. If the hose is not clogged then check the water inlet valve for any clogs, if the water will not even fill for few seconds then certainly the water inlet valve is bad and should be replaced. You can also use a multimeter to check continuity on inlet valve. If you don't get any value on the multimeter then you'll need to replace the water inlet valve assembly. However, if the valve is fine then the float switch assembly should be replaced. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

Whirlpool GU1500X dishwasher motor noise got loud

Hello- Yep- it's toast. A small seal on motor shaft failed, causing water to destroy bearings. Motor is about 100$. Installation instructions available if you choose that route. Let me know if this info helps- have more if needed.- Thanks - Ed

Dishwasher wan't fill with water

The water valve may look fine but the solenoid may not be opening to allow water in. You said that everything else works fine except no water supply to the dishwasher. This sounds like a bad soleniod valve. Check for continuity on the valve with an ohms meter after you start it. Be careful.
