this sounds like it could be the heater element has gone faulty, it is quite difficult to get to test it with it being built in, but basically gain access to the underneath of the appliance and you can test it with a test meter for open circuit, it is also possible that a wire has either come off or broken, the pump pumping out is like a safety mechanism, the eco wash may work because this uses no heat? (some models) the answer i have given you is based on the info you have supplied if i have helped please rate me, thank you, please work safe unplug when working on appliances

it sounds like the element isnt working properly.locate the element connections by removing the lower kick panel and turn the unit on to the drying cycle.use a volt meter and check the voltage.if you have voltage there than turn the circuit breaker off remove the wires to the element and check with the meter for continuity,let me know.

QuietGuard3: Clean light flashing 7 times? Press Heated Dry, press Normal Wash, then press Heated Dry again and press Normal Wash again (that's 4 button-presses) and that should fix it.

SOURCE: Not starting wash cycle
Typically this means that there has been a water leak of some sort and there is water in the lower base pan. This is the large white plastic base that the dishwasher sits on.
If you remove the toe kick and look back past the fill valve on the extreme left side of the dishwasher about 6 to 8 inches from the front you will see a red stick that goes straight up and down. This is a mechanical linkage that activates the drain feature. Be careful as there are live connections here.
This stick rests on a round piece of Styrofoam that acts as a float. If there is water present it will cause the stick to lift and the dishwasher will go into drain. The source of the leak will have to be isolated and corrected. Most likely it is the fill float assembly as referenced at the end of this post.
If the stick is not in the upright position then there is possibly an issue with the switch mechanism itself.
You will have to pull the dishwasher out from beneath the cabinet and remove the panel covering the left hand side. If it is a full panel then there are a couple of screws holding it on from the front through side trim as viewed when the door is open if it is a half panel then it can be removed by removing the large torx screw on the lower right as seen when facing the panel.
If there is a problem with the switch then the entire mechanism should be replaced.
Try the following link to a picture for reference. It is upside down as compared to the installed one:

The float switch in the tank is bad,also if water only trickles in your fill valve is going bad which will not let it fill all the way to start wash cycle. Fill tub with pot of water to raise float, if wash cycle starts,replace fill valve,if not,replace float switch.
