Welcome to Just Answers, I will be glad to help you with your question.

Sorry to see you are having problems with your DW.
Check to make sure the float in the right corner of the machine inside the tub, does'nt have anything keeping it lifted up. This would shut of the water. If it is OK then the problem would be with the water valve on the left side of the machine.
