will these units (silo and jtrip) start back on their own? if so, it is likely they are heating the water.
otherwise it sounds like a logic board, unless there is a defective door switch or sensor issue.
electronics seem to be a recurring problem with whirlpool.
i would ask whirlpool (electorlux) to either buy it back or fix it.

Indesit IDL700 first two green lights flashing and cycle stops with dirty water left in the machine. CAUSE - blocked or jammed drain pump. SOLUTION - First remove all the filters inside the machine, syphon or sponge up all the water in the sump and check for any obstruction over the fine grill at the very bottom. (we had a pistachio shell covering the hole!). If this doesn't cue it you will need to gain access to the pump. First, turn off the power. Gently lift the machine onto it's side (be ready for some water to spill out!). Remove the bottom plate (6 screws) and disconnect the sump float switch. Remove the single screw retaining the pump to the bottom of the machine and rotate to remove. You should be able to see the rotor blades. With your finger check to see if the pump rotates freely. To dismantle the pump, remove the 3 screws and separate the two halves. Our pump was jammed with an apple stalk!. Reassemble and connect any cables. Apparently this is a known problem with these machines and can be prevented by assembling the filter system correctly and pre-rinsing plates etc. before placing in the dishwasher.

I am the proud owner of a LG LDF6920WW. I bought it 10-2008 and it developed a high pitched sqeel (HPS) exactly 2 years and 3 months later. It first occurred on a monday and repeated on the following Wednesday. After the water filled the machine and the swirling, pumping, cleaning cyale began, the HPS began and lasted until the drying cycle. I searched the internet and determined that this HPS was occurring anywhere from 5 days of being purchased, up until the 2 year mark. I was weary of believing that a motor would fail in a five day period as well as last for up to 2 years, so I "Googled" parts for my model and looked at the scematic or parts break down chart. Refering to the chart, I began to disasemble my dishwasher after removing it from the cabinet and taking it to the garage.
I focused on the sump assembly. I removed all parts, motors, baffles, bladders, check valves, etc. I thougroughly cleaned all pieces and parts with windex and a scotch/sponge. I removed all food and debris from all surfaces and gaskets. I cleaned the main body cover by using a low pressure hose and alternating cleaning the top and bottow. I made sure not to rip the micro screening. Upon re-assembly I used high heat, automotive bearing grease to lubricate the seals where motor shafts protruded through them. ****Important**** I set the clutch setting at 3 on my electric drill to screw the assembly back together. I also disassembled the water inlet valve and the float assembly on the left side, exterior of the dishwasher and cleaned that completely out. I flushed all hoses as well.
I put it back in, connected all water, electricity and back-flow devices. The dishwasher is once again silent. All motors and bearings seemed fine. During tear down, the only problems I found were: 1) A lot of debris in several places. 2) dry gasket to shaft surfaces.
