I turn the dishwasher on and it starts to work, only problem is that it intermittently sticks in the same spot instead of passing through the cycle, so after 20 minutes I go back and check on it and the dial is in the same spot, so I have to give it a little turn clockwise and it starts to continue through the cycle.
I've seen it stick in the one spot right past the longest cycle most often, I don't want to break it trying to investigate before asking a certified/experienced person from here what should be done.
Well that seems to be the heat sensor for water temperature all i did till danby sent me new sensory is bypassed the temp sensor.
Can do this on left hand side of unit under it white and red wire. Take the clips off sensor and tie the wire together just tells the timer to go on that temp ok and continues wash. when sensor comes in the put in and put clicps back on.
MOST DISHWASHERS HAVE A PAUSE DURING THE HEAT
CYCLE IF TH WATER ISN'T HOT ENOUGH OR IF A HIGH
TEMP WASH IS SELECTED. NORMALLY, THE TIMER WILL
ADVANCE WHEN THE TEMP IS HOT ENOUGH TO TRIP THE
THERMOSTAT. IF IT NEVER GOES PAST THAT POINT, THERE MAY BE A FAILURE IN THE HEATER CIRCUIT.

Hello there and welcome to fixya
If electrical power is available to the dishwasher but the appliance
doesn't run, the problem is likely to be a defective door switch, timer,
or selector switch. Make sure to turn off the power to the dishwasher before attempting any repairs To solve a door switch problem, you may be able to
adjust the door latch's strike slightly, using a screwdriver then make sure the door closes securly, if this doesent work please check the timer as follows Dishwasher timer concerns can be classified
into two general categories: the timer cannot be advanced manually and
appears to be stuck or intermittent automatic timer advancement.
1. The timer dial cannot be advanced manually and appears to be stuck.
Stuck timers are generally caused by objects that prevent the detergent
cup from opening, or by a sticky substance between the timer dial and
the control panel.
Objects that prevent the detergent cup from opening: If your timer will not advance, open the dishwasher door and check for items that may be blocking the detergent cup.
Also, check the detergent cup:
It should be fully closed at the start of a cycle.
It should be fully open at the end of the cycle.
Almost fully open between main wash and final rinse.
If it is in any other position, try to open or close the cup while at
the same time rotating the timer. This should free it up. To prevent a
reoccurrence, make sure nothing blocks operation of the detergent cup when the dishwasher door is closed and operating.
Sticky substances like orange juice that get between the timer knob and the front of the control panel
on some models will bond the timer knob to the control panel. If you
have this condition, it will be virtually impossible to rotate the timer
knob while gently pressing the knob in toward the dishwasher. It will
rotate normally if the knob is gently pulled away from the dishwasher
while rotating the knob.
This problem can be solved by gently pulling the knob away from
the control panel and cleaning behind the knob with a damp cloth. Do not use excessive force
because the knob is attached to the control panel on models affected by
this problem. If this operation cannot be performed, service should be
contacted to repair the problem.
2. Intermittent automatic timer advancement.
This can be described as the timer can be advanced manually, but it
does not advance automatically in spots for up to 30 minutes.
This is almost always a normal condition and always occurs on models with a "Delay Start" feature.
Delay start timers increment or advance a couple of degrees once
every minute or so during most of the cycle. However, during certain
parts of the cycle they increment once every 30 minutes. This gives the
dishwasher time to do the job of cleaning your dishes. The long
increment times occur during "Delay Start", "Hot Start", "Normal Wash"
and "Dry" cycles.
The timer will not move at all during these delay periods. This
is normal operation and service is not needed. If you notice delay
times substantially longer than 30 minutes, replace the timer
Also ensue that you are getting adequate water pressure and the unit is getting water inside and that the water is at the right temperature 140 is the min. for most units
Please check the above and let me know what you have found so i can continue to help there is a lot of things to check but these that i have provided are the most common thing that need to be checked first ok?
I had the same problem. Turn the HIGH TEMP buttons off. Simply turning them off corrected this problem for me. Mine got stuck in two places and I had to manually turn the dials or the washer would run all night.
green light on right flashing and beeping noise..Problem solved by thowing a few pints of water in the bottom of the dishwasher...must have 'primed' the pump..which must have been the problem; working fine now. David- Crosby
ok start the washer after it fills and starts washing open the door again and turn the dial to drain shut the door see if it drains if it does then open the door and turn it to heated dry shut the door and get you a small glass of warm water let it sit in heated dry for about 3 minutes open the door and pour the water on the heating element and let me know if it sizzles
