Dishwasher will not go through a full cycle. Sometimes will start but then will stop after about 1 min. Control panel was replaced twice. Also melted plastic glasses in top rack and silicone and plastic utensils in bottom. GE tech support contacted multiple times by technician. They still cannot figure out what is going on.

Re: cycle will not run completely
It is a problem with the water heating cycle, the dishwasher pauses after it has filled with water, waiting for the water to reach the pre-set temperature. A thermic sensor will allow the machine to restart the cycle after the water reaches the required temperature. In your machine the thermostat is defective and the machine waits too long, that is also the reason for the too high temperature melting plastic.

See my problem and solution. Sounds like you, too, are having a problem with the main control board (computer chip that controls the dishwasher), which is apparently a common problem with this model dishwasher. The part can be found here, for $211 (tax + shipping), and they have a 30-day return policy in the event that it does not fix the problem. It's an easy DIY fix. Hopefully this helps!
If the dishwasher is hanging on in the middle of the cycle it is usually the heating system. If the temperature of the water is going up after filling, then the element may be working. The element is tested using a multi meter set on Ohms to read impedance across the heater element contacts. If impedance is infinity (open-off limit), then the element is gone. If the element is OK, then the bi-metal thermostat or the fuse must be replaced. The heating assembly is located at the base of the appliance, behind the kick panel.
Behind the kick panel you should also find the tech sheet illustrating how to run the diagnostic cycle for this model. Run a diagnostic cycle to confirm that the problem is with the heating system. Drain, water sensor and inlet problems sometimes may also result in cycle not finishing.
hey you..I have a whirlpool dishwasher too that would not stop the wash cycle...it would run for 2-3 hours, and then run thru the whole wash cycle again!
so..I had a whirlpool factory trained repair man come to the home. He ran a diagnostic and it was 100% good, so he called Whirlpool headquarters spoke to them;
said...........every 250 hours the dishwasher will RE-CALIBRATE itself! running for 4-4 1/2 hours straight, in order to re-calibrate itself. I was interupting this by opening the door before it had run the full 4 -41/2 hours of it's self-maintenance program.
Perhaps that your dishwasher is doing too? p.s. always make sure you get a repairman that is factory trained in your specific brand, otherwise you'll waste $$$ money with a repairman who doesn't have access to the corporate tech's and direct access to their parts/inventory.
good luck with your dishwasher! mine is the whisper quiet with computer control on front of the door.
sounds like you have a stuck key in the control panel, you would need to replace the keypad, which comes as complete console w/active overlay(check your manual sometimes extended part warr on electronic model
