without any input from you to explain, sounds like your drive motor (pump) is malfunctioning. does it sit there for the length of cycle, then drain? you say the motor doesn't work. replace it if it is deffective
It is possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors due to feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program controller must initiate the INLET/MOTOR/DRAINpump/ valve to open up and allow each function to be driven starting from the flow of water into the drum as also the drain valve to open to exit the water at the point of the program cycle. If this does not happen then the voltage at the valve/motor/pump must be checked or the fault relates to no voltage from the controller. This means the controller is a suspect since the cycle when advanced seems to go through well.
Make sure that a fault in any of the cycle will relate to the specified action, so check the command from the program module and then the executing device be it the valve or motor or pump.
Based on your description and provided the dishwasher is indeed filling with water, draining, heating, but not circulating, It sounds like a busted wash impeller within the main motor/circulation pump.
First though, do you hear a quiet sound of a motor starting once the unit has completed filling with water ?
( it will be super quiet if the wash impeller is broke as I suspect it may be...almost like a fountain, since the Viking...built by "Asko"...are very quiet under normal conditions. You will have to either get right down with your ear to the bottom or run it with the door open by activating the door switch with a screw-driver )
If so that is a tell tale of no wash action yet the motor runs, hence broken impeller. If you don't hear anything it may be a wire come off the main motor/circulation pump...but not likely.
This unfortunately is common with Asko built dishwasher`s and it is a case of being a victim of their own design.
What happens typically is the ball-bearings from the upper rack holders ( which are plastic which fatigues due to heat and fall apart ) fall out making their way into the sump, hence breaking the wash impeller from the motor.
Let me know what you find and I'll try and help you move forward from there.
If you're sure it is heating the water, then it sounds like the wash motor/pump has failed. If you've worked on washing machines and/or dish washers before, this is potentialy a DIY job - the Haynes Dishwasher manual is very good, and parts can be found on the internet.
The reason for cheking it is actually heating the water is that the symptoms sound very similar to those of a failed heater = fill, pause, empty, stop usually accompanied wth an error code. Error code will be presented by a number of flashes of a lamp, or a number on a display panle depending whch machine you've got.
It sounds like the main pump isn't running - either it is jammed with something, burned out or has a power supply problem. If you can disconnect the machine from everything and turn it onto its side and look at the base you may be able to see the main pump and check if it is free to turn, and also look for corroded contacts / broken wires.
If you are not up to doing that yourself then I guess you'll need an engineer.
what your friend did would not affect the appliance. by the sound of it the main circulating pump or pump capacitor is faulty. capacitor is a cheap part but the pump will be expensive. only way to find out is to dive in and look. is pump motor is faulty then this will be faily obvious - burnt winding. if no apparant motor damage try substituting the motor capacitor - this is a cheap part
