Dishwasher was in cleaning cycle, made whirring/buzzing sound, wife turned off. Now fills with water, heats, and control panel clicks when cycle should begin, but no cleaning cycle. Disassembled down to motor/pump assembly ( did not remove it ) and found nothing obvious. Please advise.

Did you remove the cover from the wash impeller housing and get a look at the mascerator? Sounds like yours mights sheared off. If that's the case, you'll need to replace the motor-pump assembly...

Easy job. This video shows you how to do it.

Well, it turns out that a small (about 2cm) metal pin was wedged in such a way as to prevent the chopper from rotating. I discovered this after removing the inlet protector.
I don't know where this pin originated from; probably from something that was put in the dishwasher to be cleaned. I hope its not from the dishwasher itself. Anyway, the dishwasher seems to be running OK. Thanks for the help.

The metal pin could be half of a rivet from a pot handle, I've found those in the same place.

Could be a tongue stud, too. I've found those stuck in dishwasher impellers.

After showing the pin to my wife, she identified it as a hinge pin from a water bottle lid. How 'bout that? Glad its not a $150 motor/pump assembly.
