Contractor's Assistant: Just to clarify, what's the make and model of your dishwasher? And have you run a diagnostic test cycle?

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

I have gone as far as I want to unless there is a easy fix.

Hello sorry to hear you are having trouble, I'm Joel and will be glad to help you today.

Make sure you remembered to turn the water supply back on to the unit, and if you are sure its on and there is enough water pressure being supplied to the unit then push heavy, normal temp and start and the unit should run if not the unit is faulty and needs to be replaced or serviced under warranty.
