Question about Whirlpool Dishwashers
About 4 inches of the heating coil is red hot, roughly those inches closest to the dor. Is this normal? When I open the door, I can see it cool down, but is this safe to run?

Your water pump is blocked. You will need to either call a repair person or disassemble the top of the pump (inside the dishwasher, bottom) and check the water input duct. It just might be some food, etc.. that is blocking the input. But if you don't see anything then it will be further inside and will need to be removed and cleaned. BIG pain...
Best of luck. BTW, I've had the exact same problem but mine was further inside so I had to remove the whole dang pump, arggggggg.

A clog in the drain line or air gap (if there is one) is the usual reason that a dishwasher won't drain. Often the problem is at the point where the drain line attaches to the garbage disposer or household drain line. If you remove this line, you can clear any debris from the hose or hose connection. Be sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher again.
Many dishwashers use a drain valve with an electric solenoid. When electricity flows to the solenoid, the valve opens and diverts the water to the drain. Sometimes the solenoid, or the diverting lever, sticks and prevents the dishwasher from draining or filling properly. Try to free up the solenoid to lubricate the lever. Otherwise, you may have to replace the solenoid or pump assembly. With these systems, the motor always rotates in one direction. When it's energized, the drain valve diverts the water.
Other dishwashers simply reverse the direction of the motor to drain the dishwasher. These units don't have a drain valve. Instead, there's a drain hose connected directly to the pump housing.
