Do you have the proper shutoff valve installed and is it completely open.
I've seen people use shutoff valve sizes you use for a refrigerator.

The float does turn the water off under normal circumstances, but I believe that some or all models will also time the water intake cycle. If the timer advances regardless of the float level, then it could result in too low a water level if you have a kinked hose or other restriction in the water line. I think most mfrs do the double shut-off as a safeguard in case the float is stuck - otherwise you would fill the thing with water and possible flood the house.
Of course this won't prevent a flood if the water intake valve is stuck open...

I wouldn't do anything that will void your warranty, but before you call the service person, check the piping and hoses leading to the machine. I am fairly certain that if the service person finds a blocked line outside of the machine, you will be charged for the call, regardless of warranty.

Handyman came back out and replaced the shutoff valve to the new dishwasher. The old shutoff valve was all corroded and filled with calcium and no water was able to pass through. All is good and the tablets are dissolving and dishes are getting clean!!!! We probably do have hard water but the previous shutoff valve had been on the old dishwasher for 16 years. Thank you for all the posts and help.

I probably need to replace all of the shutoff valves in my home. They are still the old washer type, which get clogged very easily when you have hard water. Ball valves are the best to use for all water supply shutoff.
