If the dishwasher won't fill up with water and you're sure it's getting water from your house. Check the float switch. The float switch is part 308 on the diagram attached below. You'll need to remove the bottom wash arm and filters and such to get access to the float switch barrel. Pull this out and look through the side slots to make sure the center float isn't stuck up from gunk build up. Clean it out and make sure the float inside slides down. Re-connect everything and try again. If it still won't fill, then you're looking at a bad electronic water valve or control board. You'd have to test power to the valve to know if it's getting power from the board or not.

Hello again. I'm just following up because I haven't heard back from you and I see this question is still open and unrated. Is there anything else I can help you with?

I did what you said and no water appearred. Your next suggestion was very complicated about a bad electric something. This was a total waste of money, I called Lowe’s, Home Depot, Walmart, and they all had a citric acid pack that took care of it in 30 seconds. I will never use this site again. My rating is zero
