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.

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.

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.

Thanks Kokanee. I was gonna give an update an ask a question, but think you already answered it. I cleared the diagnostics and ran it again. This time no suds, but the jet dry was empty. I was wondering how to test that part and if I'm reading you right, I'm basically running the washer without the cover on to watch the dispenser.

That still leaves me with why will it stop during a cycle and is it normal for water to be left in the bottom? I know samurai said one step at a time, so ill do the dispenser next.
