Have you tested for voltage to or out of the float switch assembly when the dishwasher should be filling?

no
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 8 months ago

ok if the unit is not getting any water into the unit the first thing you need to do is find out if the float switch is even getting voltage to it to be able to energize the water inlet valve .

When the unit should be calling for water ( the first two minutes of the cycle after it is turned on ) test the pink wire on the float switch to chassis ground for 120 volts A/C if you do have voltage there then test the other wire on the float switch yellow to chassis ground to see if the float switch is bad.

If you do not have voltage on the pink wire to chassis ground then you have an electronic control board issue and the control board will need to be replaced.

if you need parts info just let me know!
