The kitchen sink was clogged when the dishwasher was run, and the water from the dishwasher backed up. Stopped the dishwasher and removed the clog from the sink.
Now when we run the dishwasher, no water will flow thru the dishwasher.

The water valve for the dishwasher is still open
Expert:  Bryan replied 7 years ago.
ok, you have one of two problems, 1 the float in the dishwasher is stuck up, 2 your water valve is bad, these are electronic and fail a lot, Part(NNN) NNN-NNNN width= this is the pressure chamber that has the float, this is on the side of the dish washer, you will need to pull the dish washer out to get at this though, Part(NNN) NNN-NNNN width=check the float if its not stuck replace the can get the valve @

Will anything need to be disconnected to pull out the washer, and will the floater be underneath or behind the washer?
Expert:  Bryan replied 7 years ago.
the water inlet float is on the side , you may have to disconnect the dish washer to get it out, there will also be screws (usually two when you open the door) holding it to the counter top,
