Question about Dishwashers
First cut power for ten minutes by unplugging power cord or tripping circuit breaker.
If that does not work try the following reset.
Press in succession:
High temp-air dry-high temp-air dry - High temp-air dry-high temp-air dry
high temp-normal-high temp-normal - high temp-normal-high temp-normal
sani-rinse, heat-dry, sani-rinse, heat-dry
depending on the model.
If that does not work, then there is an internal fault, it can be thermostat, dryness sensor, control board.
In that case the machine must be tested by a technician.
Try first the reset , the most common is high temp-air dry twice. You may need to try a couple of times before it works.

Your dishwasher is not getting the water evacuation limit signal - so it is shutting down.
Your evac pump or it's controller has failed.
If you are not keen at repairing electrical equipment - a service call is in order - as you will need to check voltages at different points in the Dishwasher.
A serivice tech will have you up and running quickly.
Short of checking the drain for blockage - there is really no end-user (push button) fix for your problem.
Using the LIGHT cycle may allow enough time for water to evacuate if there is a blockage.
Before calling a repairman - check the bottom trap for food/paper/plastic restricting the outflow of water.
Thanks for using FixYa!!
