Re: The dishwasher isnt doing the full cycle
A few things here one with no water coming in the water solonoid could be blocked or is fualty,check to ensure the filter in the soloniod is clean do this by removeing the inlet pipe from the conection at the back of the machine and in the solonoid is a small filter remove it and clean ,reconnect the water and try again,if no water is taken the chances are that the solonoid is gone replace it after you have checked the following ,second if water is taken then see if the timer moves if it does not then look at replaceing the timer again after going through all the possibilities,the motor running is part of the process the motor is meant to run to drain exsess water before takeing new water .the only other thing is that the pressure switch has not released normally from an obstuction in the pressure pipe worst case the switch itself has packed up to test is easy locate the pressure switch and blow into it and if you hear a click and another click when you stop blowing it should be ok if not replace it.

I know it sounds strange, but many times when detergent dissolve, a failed heating element is to blame. The detergent needs that water to be hot to dissolve and activate the detergent.
Recommend you check the heating element for obvious damage/failure. When you run the full cycle, does the heating element get hot? If not, replacing it is not as hard as it appears. Post back here with further questions, OK?
If the heating element _is_ working, the other possibility is a failing wash pump motor, but depending on the age of your dishwasher, replacing
If the motor is running, the diverter solenoid valve is probably not functioning. It is attached to the pump. With the power off, take the solenoid apart and remove whatever is jamming it. Toothpicks are a favorite as are any large food particle. It may also be bad. Not the problem...you may have a defective timer or your outlet hose is clogged or kinked.
My Frigidaire front loader washer model LTF2140E doesnt want to drain the water when set to wash (heavy-normal-quick selectors). It washes put thats it. I have to switch the selector to drain/spin then rinse/spin cycle to finish the load. I checked the drain hose for any clogs....everything is clear. Any suggestions? Also,iIs their any reset buttons for this type of washer?
You need the control panel to reset before anything else can happen. To do this TURN OFF THE PLUG SOCKET FIRST AND UNPLUG. Then you need to drain ALL the water from the machine. Turn off the water supply feed and place the wastage pipe as low to the floor as poss ( 1-2" off floor). Water will gush out so use a large shallow tray and keep emptying the tray. Tilt the dishwasher over slightly to make sure all the water is out. This will allow the control panel to reset itself which wouldn't normally happen if the base of the dishwasher was holding even a small amount of water. Re connect the water, plug back in , select the RESET setting on the dial and close the door and switch on. Leave for about 20 seconds and then turn off. Rotate the selector switch to "A" Intensive wash and switch
I found this on another site and it really did work for me
Hi You have a problem which will need some knowledge of how the machine works and some test meter.There may be a problem with the motor.It may not beworking,jammed or dead -burnt out.The motor does the work after the water-cold,hot or medium-has entered. The timer-you say works- will connect power to the motor to do its job,power to solonoid for the valves to open at the right time to let water in and out-pushed out by the motor.Remove the water with a cup and rags from the machine and then see if the motor turns by hand.This may mean you have to get under the machine.ALL WAYS REMOVE THE POWER CORD AT THE WALL POWER OUTLET--Jay
IA, these GE pumps have a habit of sticking if the unit hasn't been run for a while. First you want to verify that the motor is in fact getting power, this will eliminate the timer. You can use a meter on the quik connect from the motor while in the wash cycle. If the motor is getting power, see if the pump is stuck by turning the motor vanes (Do this with the power off). If it's hard to turn and then frees up than this was more than likley your problem. You remove the bottom toe panel and will be able to check this out without removing the dishwasher.

If you have either dry bearings in the motor or sticky grease buildup in the pump bearing/seal, it can cause the motor to stick rather than rotate on startup. More likely to be greasy crud buildup.
The best you can do without disassembling the entire unit is to circulate a good degreaser product in a wash cycle, such as 409 or PurplePower.
On the off chance (very small chance) it would degrade plastic parts, only run degreaser wash cycle for 5 minutes or so before draining it and running rinse cycle.
