Yes on both. It will advance to end of cycle if manually advanced to past 7 o'clock, one or two small clicks.
Soap door opens (at around 5/6 o'clock) and water valve works. The dishwasher just sits there in wash cycle.
I noticed the "wash" indicator light goes off and on throughout entire cycle, yet it stays off at 7 o'clock and the dishwasher just sits there in wash cycle.. That's why I am suspecting the timer. I'm going to use an ohmmeter and the tech sheet (which I located on this website by following the Samurai's instruction on how to search) and try to isolate the bad contact within the timer. I'm thinking the small amount of resistance on the blackened wire terminal at the hi limit thermostat may have caused an arc to jump at that point, inside the timer, seeing as the thermostat has been identified in other welcome posts by other members as a common culprit on this particular "mechanically timed" appliance. I'll post a follow up on this afterwards.
Also, I think I saw your likeness in a movie preview coming out in December. You haven't aged a bit. Thanks Wes.
