OK so I bought a house and the dishwasher wasnt winterized property. A valve broke and caused it to dump water all over the floor after filling up the tub.

So the bank had someone come out and repair the dishwasher.

Now it runs through it's cycle but no water runs at all. WTF - any suggestions?

Check that he turned on the angle stop to d/w after his repair.

If runs without water means that water level sensor is permanently closed and activates the cycle

I'm not an appliance repairman, but have installed quite a few.
I thought that they had a water level sensor in them as the water gets heated up to much higher than what comes out of the water heater before it starts washing.
That being said, check the valve. Usually under the sink.

turn the water on, most DWs just use a timed fill cycle, float switch only turns the water off if over filling.

Also check the wires going to the fill valve.

It ran through a full cycle last night and the soap was still there, no water at all.... i will check for a valve... does this mean I have to pull the dishwasher out??

Check the supply first.
If other plumbing was done on the house, some shit could have got knocked loose and plugged the valve/hose. Thats a stretch, but seen it happen.
99.9% of the time its something simple, like the water is turned off. I have done this myself!

Check your water line from the valve under the sink to where it hooks to the dishwasher. I have seen this a couple of times and the only problem was rust clogging either the valve, a screen on one end of the line, or the brass elbow where the water line attaches to the dishwasher. A very easy fix.

Turn it off.

It will stop running.

No, just remove the toe plates and check to see if the wires to the valve is connected.
