The dishwasher should heat the water to about 55 C as the heating cycle starts.
In these cycle, the dishwasher pauses after has filled with water and wait for the water to reach the temperature.
If the water isn't being heated (because of a problem with the heating element or thermostat), after the unit stops at the heating cycle, it never continues.
Another possible reason is that the timer unit is defective. If you have observed anything different post a comment.

Drain valve not opening or pump impeller loose on shaft - is it washing ok?
My guess would be drain valve not opening. It is a 110v solenoid and they get stuck or burn up. New solenoid costs ~$20.00

This is one problem I researched for GE dishwashers and however..it appears to be a universal problem with lots of brands...The float get stuck in one position or the other...you can see it inside the DW...(round like a half round ball....pull it out see if it is gunked up and clean it out replace it and make sure it moves up and down freely...all the while you should here a clicking noise. Anyway here is what I also found...similar or exactly the same as I said but with some extra info that may suit your model.....
The issue was a full overflow trap which pushes up a toilet-style float and trips a small switch. This effectively freezes the dishwasher in "drain" cycle and for whatever reason puts the panel on Heated Dry. Caused by too much soap or accidental or accumulated inclusion of regular or hand soap (from dishes w/ soap in them in the sink).
Taking off the toe kick and removing a couple panels under the dishwasher lets you barely see the tiny tray that is the culprit, and you can sneak paper towels into one edge of it to dry it out and return it to service.
Hopr this helps...good luck and good day...thank yopu for rating my effort.....The Fang.
