This thing is driving me nuts. Put the new vent on. No water . Ran the first cycle fine, but noticed a little water/suds in the bottom. Hit the drain button and it emptied. Ran the next cycle and the same thing. Took the cover off the drain and all looked good. Checked that the discharge line and it was clear. Ran again, same thing. Ideas?
I thought I rotated that picture. Sorry its upside down

One drop of non dishwasher soap will give you suds.Or like in the other posts your rinse aid tank maybe leaking or putting it in at the wrong time.Do you just rinse your dirty dishes off with water.Do not soak dirty dishes in non dishwasher soap.

Drain pumps are designed to pump water not suds . All your water is turning to suds , after the dry cycle most of the suds have turned back into water and thats what you see.
You should be able to detach the black panel off the front from the control panel.
Reattach the latch and control to the inner panel. Closed the door and run a quick or 1 Hour cycle.
Now grab a beer .. maybe two and watch the dispenser. Whether it has a wax motor or a cylinoid.
It should only activate twice . First time to release detergent in the wash cycle and once more in the rinse cycle for your JetDry.
If it is activated more the twice then it is your control.
Only twice you have a leaking dispenser.
Leaking dispenser is the more likely cause , But I have seen a bad control One time !

Okay....the saga continues. Life has gotten in the way, so I ordered a new soap dispenser since the consensus is that it is leaking which I agree. Once it was empty, the suds went away. Put the new one and ran the eco cycle. It shut off sometime during the cycle and now I am back to the original main problem. I think I cleared the error code last time, but it stilled showed a 6-1 and 6-2. I'll try and run a diagnostics again tonight, but not sure if the old codes are clearing. Is this a junky dishwasher? Should I throw in the towel and just get a new one? Thanks so far for your help.

In the process as we speak. When I did the first run after installing the new dispenser, I did not add any jet dry to the dispenser, so it is still clean. I just cant figure why the thing is shutting off mid cycle. I pressed the hi temp key in interval 20 and 13 last time to clear the codes. I hope thats correct. Thanks Spannerwrench. I'm running on the 1 hour mode right now and will get back with you later. One thing is for sure, I can get that front panel off pretty darn quick now. lol.

That still leaves me with why will it stop during a cycle and is it normal for water to be left in the bottom?
Customer Concern: Dishwasher stops approximately 10 minutes into the cycle, “cancel drains” and goes directly to standby mode (off).
Cause: Testing has determined that cycle stopping may result from a software error that can cause a false error code that cancels the cycle. Techs will see a 6-1 error code recorded in service diagnostics. This issue is very sporadic, and is affected by the location of the household and region of the country. Other conditions that may also cause this “cancel drain” cycle are: siphoning through the drain hose, severe sudsing, and debris in the sump.
If the customer experiences a “cancel drain” issue, first check the following:
1. Make sure the dishwasher is installed according to installation instructions provided with the unit.
2. Check for water siphoning out through the drain hose. Ensure that the drain hose end termination point
is above the water level in the tub. The drain loop attached to the side of the tub is not sufficient to
3. Check for severe sudsing or a malfunctioning Rinse Aid dispenser.
4. Check for locked rotor in wash pump.
5. Check for and remove debris in the bottom of the sump/chopper area.
6. Check for water supply and proper water level in the dishwasher.
7. If all the above checks are OK, then the control will need to be replaced with one that has the upgraded
software designed to handle any additional power variation. See chart below for part numbers.
Control Part Number
Replace with Part Number W10380685

No suds in either run. Had the 6-2 and 6-1 in the customer error slots and no codes in the service error slots.
Thanks Chat... Let me go over them one by one.
1) I followed the instructions on installation and did not have any problems until the unit was over two years old. Could I have still put it in wrong?
2) I believe the drain line runs into my disposal as I can see the water enter when the drain cycle comes on. Couldn't tell you if I have a loop in it because I don't remember.
3) Replaced with new dispenser and no suds. Removed soap from old one and then no suds.
4) Not sure how to do this one.
5) It was clean as per the pics.
6) How do I check for proper water level?
It's drained completely the last several times, but the few that did not showed the green light for the end of cycle. Today I know it shut off within an hour, but couldn't tell you the exact time.
This problem has been sporadic for the last several month, but got worse when I started this thread.
