This dishwasher has driven me crazy since we got it. Every so often it does this. Basically, when you start the cycle (any cycle--doesn't matter), it will first pump out any water in the bottom, then it sounds as if it pumps in water, works for about five minutes (maybe less) then stops and says that the cycle is finished and the dishes are clean. Usually there is water in the bottom when it does this. You can run it empty and it will do the same thing.
I have been able to get it to stop doing this and start working again before, but without any rhyme or reason as to how or why. In the past, we have pulled the screen and checked it for blockages on the drain, pulled it out, unplugged it, plugged it back in, etc. Eventually the thing started working again, but we had done all of these things multiple times, and we don't really know why it chose to work.
Potential guesses would be something to do with the float or something to do with the control board. I have fixed a dishwasher before, but am FAR from handy or knowledgable on the subject.
Thanks for any help you can give me!
