Question about Dishwashers
See if you can access the tech sheet, should be on the right side of the underside of the unit after you remove the toe panel, or perhaps in the console. Almost sounds like a stuck key pad but the tech sheet might shed more information on this malfunction.

This happens because, Once the drain solenoid is activated the first time during the cycle, the valve will not return to the wash position even though the water drains completely out and filling begins. The solenoid de-energizes but the valve remains in the drain position, even if you try to manually move the cam back to the wash position. It seems as though the vacuum created by the pump is holding the valve in the drain position.
It sounds like the flapper valve has come loose from it's shaft.
Remove the spray arm assy etc., then hold the flapper in the drain position while moving the solenoid cam to see if this is the problem. If you manually force the cam into the wash position then the flapper should also go to wash position but according to the above it does not
Actually it is water pressure that holds the flapper shut. When the unit goes into a drain cycle the solenoid is activated for a few seconds. It then deactivates but the water pressure keeps it closed. When the water is pumped out the pressure is reduced and the valve is returned to the wash position by the spring. Seems like this is not happening and the valve is staying closed even with reduced pressure.
you will require the solenoid to be replaced.you can order and get the parts at
