Question about Dishwashers
Dishwasher will cycle if I turn off both High Temp Selections. When Hi Temp selections are on, the water is steaming hot when I open the door. What part tells the timer that the temp is 140 degrees so that the timer is allowed to continue the cycle process? Cycle stops before both rinse and dry cycles. I have tried using hot cycle independently for each cycle and it stalls at whichever cycle is selected for hot cycle. If I turn both off, the process completes normally. Thank you.

The cycle doesn't complete
If the cycle doesn't complete, check these:
Many dishwashers heat the wash and/or rinse water to a higher temperature, as the cycle calls for it. In these cycles, the dishwasher pauses after it has filled with water, waiting for the water to reach the pre-set temperature. What happens next, depends, as follows:
On some units, the pause is timed and the unit continues after the allotted time.
On others, the cycle can't continue until the water reaches the higher temperature. If you have this type of dishwasher and the water isn't being heated (say, because of a problem with the heating element or thermostat), after the unit stops at the heating cycle, it never continues. When you repair the heating-system problem, the "cycle problem" is fixed too.
Timers don't often fail. But if every other part of the dishwasher seems to be working properly and the timer knob seems to be stuck in one place--doing one function continuously--the timer may be at fault. Dishwasher timers can't be repaired. If yours is defective, replace it.
I see an error code
If your dishwasher has a digital readout and you see an error code, it may indicate a problem with the unit. If this happens, look up the error code in your owner's manual to find out what the problem is.
