Hello. My name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you with your appliance question today. Please wait a few moments while I review your question.

This dishwasher had a seal kit re-designed due to this problem. The issue is that the shaft that attaches to the motor strips out because it was made of plastic so the motor runs but it can't spray water to wash the dishes. The shaft has been re-designed and is metal now so below is a link to the kit you need to order and replace. It comes with instructions.

Now if no water enters the dishwasher at all so there is none on the floor, then you just have a fill issue. If you're positive that the dishwasher is definitely getting water from your house then you either have an issue with your electronic water valve underneath the washer or your float switch is stuck in the up position. Open up your door and look in the front corner of your dishwasher there is a plastic circular float device. Wiggle this up and down and make sure it's in the down position. If it's stuck in the up position it will not fill. If it still doesn't work and you looked under the dishwasher and you don't see any wires unplugged then you will need to order and replace your electronic water valve.

Now if you have a multimeter, you can do one more test to confirm the valve is bad by testing for 120 volts across the 2 wires going to the electronic water valve. If you have 120 volts and it's not filling, then your valve is definitely bad.
