There are some flashing lights that indicate a problem.

If a keypad is stuck or shorted then the corresponding light will flash.

During the cycle the most will stop and pause for a short time.

One thing I would like you to try is to run a quick rinse or rinse only cycle. This cycle should fill, wash and drain and nothing else.

If the lights start blinking then the corresponding keypad is stuck or has a short.

Reply with what happens and any additional details for further assistance.

I run "Rinse only" cycle without interruptions. Normally I use "Normal" and "Energy saver dry" buttons and sometimes they start flashing right in the beginning, but most of the time in the middle of cycle usually during fill up together with "Wash" or "Rinse" lights depends on where in the cycle interruption happens.

If rinse only works okay then the problem might be with water heat. The unit will pause during the cycle to heat the water. If you run a regular cycle does the water seem to be heating? I suspect you have a water heating problem which might be the element or thermostat.

This is a tricky diagnosis. I'm not sure there is a problem. Is this dishwasher new to you or have you had it awhile? The reason I ask is that the motor does pause during the cycle. Seeing the motor pause for 6 seconds or 2 minutes would be normal. The flashing lights indicate a stuck keypad. It may be happening in the middle of the cycle because of the heat and moisture. I would suggest the console be replaced to fix this problem.

This dishwasher about 10 years old, but it was rarely used. Why it stops during initial fill up, when motor is not running yet? By console you mean control panel with buttons? I remove console and looks like all buttons clicking OK, doesn't look like they stuck.

A:

From the description you give they don't start flashing till the middle of the cycle. I was not aware it stopped in the middle of the fill cycle. The water valve is controled by the main control board. If there is a meter available and you are comfortable using it then one thing to try is checking voltage to the water valve when it stops filling. If there is 120 volts then the valve is bad but if there is no voltage then the main control is the problem. Be careful checking live voltage.

Everything point to control board, but I have two control boards with the same problem?

A:

The only thing between the valve and control is the float switch. If you check the switch does it seem okay? If the voltage to the valve stops mid fill then what about voltage at the door switches. With two controls doing the same thing where is the voltage dropping out?
