When I turn on the dishwasher it will run for about three minutes then shut off. The only way to get it to run is if I start all over again, but once again it will only run for about three minutes then it stops. If I wash the dishes in the sink, water some how gets into the dishwasher, not much , but some. There is also a rotton egg smell that goes along with the water. I am open to any ideas and thanks in advance for your help.

I'm not a dishwasher expert. I was just thinking about water draining back into the dishwasher while doing dishes. Have you looked at your drain line yet? I believe they are supposed to have a high loop in the drain line. I'm assuming that helps with the draining back. When my buddy installed my dishwasher he said to check the loop periodically to make sure it hasn't slipped down. All he did was take a wire tie or zip tie and hook the pipe up higher than where it hooks into the drain. You may need to clean your sink traps or dishwasher drain hose is a bit clogged causing the rotten smell. Like I said I'm no dishwasher expert yet, but I figured I would share my thoughts since no one has answered yet.

It appears you are missing the 665 at the beginning of your model # as well.

I've always liked this dishwasher.  The wash motor is hard to kill and usually don't have much problem evacuating the water unless the check valve (connecting the drain hose to the motor) gets restricted.

 

If the unit shuts down after starting the wash cycle, it might be a voltage issue.  Check the power box located behind the bottom access panel, lower right side.  See if the power cord connections show any sign of damage or looseness.
