This means the unit isn't detecting water coming in the unit. If there is definitely water getting to the dishwasher, then you will need to replace the flow meter which is the part that detects the water entering the dishwasher when the valve opens.

Thank You for your response. Where is the flow meter and is there a way to check it?
Expert:  Tyler Z. replied 7 years ago.
there is no way to check it and it's usually right before the inlet on the left side of the dishwasher. Here is a link to the part.
