Not really interested in throwing $180 on this this problem to see if it fixes the problem.
It does seem strange, that I can always get it to run 100% thru the customer service cycle and not show any problems....I am using that to clean dishes for now.
How can a pump work some times and not others...? I keep trying to hang on and get a hard failure, but remain in this limbo state where it seems like everything is working, but it just goes from start to finish in 5 minutes and says it is clean. Seems like some sensor or something is telling it to stop....I did adjust my drain hose to smooth out the turns it was taking after the hose exited the dishwasher...that and the drain pump got me working for about 2-3 weeks.
Frustrated and ready to toss this one.
