My disherwasher starts and finishes the prewash cyle normally. After the water draines and the next cycle starts I hear just humming when I should hear water sloshing around. I open the door and there is no water in the machine. I can reset the cycle and start a new one and it fails (will not let new water in). I can come back in 30 minutes and it will start a cycle and complete it but fail on the next.

Double-check to see that the first cycle really is normal. You might find it's actually not filling all the way.

Your water valve receives voltage from the control panel thru the float switch (flood switch).  Make sure the float is down.  You you could have a fill valve going bad, float switch going bad or the float stuck in the up position or the control panel going bad, not giving power to the water valve.  You will have to see if you are getting voltage to the valve.  If so you probably have a valve that is sticking in the closed position and would need to be replaced.

Thanks, I opened the bottom plate (with the power off)and checked the float valve switch..OK, and the water inlet silenoid...OK. I ran the dishwasher and it failed to let water in on the 2nd cycle. I cut the power off and the Inlet silenoid checked open. I guess it opens after it heats up. I will order and new one and keep my fingers crossed.

I just replaced the inlet valve and the dishwasher went through a complete cycle. I counted 6 water in water out cycles. The only problem is the mounting bracket on valve that I bought is different from the one I replaced. Is it consider crude to just leave it laying on the floor underneath the dishwasher?

Should not matter as long as it cannot move around letting the metal bracket come into contact with electrical wires as it will jump when it opens and closes.  Other than that, who will know since the toe panel will cover it from others seeing it.

I have a 20 year old GE Potscrubber 1200. There is no water coming from the upper sprayer arm. (I took off the arm, jammed a paper towel lightly in the hole, and ran for several minutes; paper towel was still there.) Plenty of water from the lower arm and side of the dishwasher. I haven't pulled machine from the cabinet, but wonder could that hose alone be clogged, or is there a separate pump which has gone south?

TIA

1000 apologies for previous newbie post w/o model number. Model number on said appliance, with no water from the upper sprayer arm, is GSD1200T-01.

Thanks.

   Sorry but it is most crude.  Next time switch the new valve body onto the old valve mounting bracket.  It even makes the plumbing part easier that way too.  Everything stays lined up.
