We just moved into our condo and I think our dishwasher is pretty new because the previous owner remodeled the kitchen and put the dishwasher in to help sell it. I started the Kenmore dishwasher on Normal Wash, and then opened the door a few minutes afterwards to put a dish in that I forgot. I thought the cycle completed but it just stopped with some water that did not drain. I tried resetting the cycle with the knob but the dishwasher won't start. I can't find the manual.
In my parent's old GE dishwasher (1990's), all the time we used to in the early cycle open the door and add dishes and the cycle would continue as normal, in newer models is there some safety switch that shuts it off or something? Am I not supposed to open the dishwasher door in the middle of a cycle?
