When the dishwasher is started the water fills up and as soon as the cycle starts, it immediately stops and then drains the dishwasher, This happens in all the cycles with the exception of the "Quick Wash" cycles which appears to work just fine.
We had a repair man out who diagnosed the problem to be the electrical control board. I replaced this part which was very expensive and it made no change at all. The machine still fills and empties without washing. Is there anything else that would control this?
The frustrating thing is that one cycle will work but none of the others do.

Re: Cycles won't run
Dc, sounds more like a shorted interface, a shorted keypad will act like this. There should be a tech sheet behind the toe panel on the bottom. It should have instructions on how to test the keypad and put the unit into the test cycle. Catriver..post back.

Most likely the flood switch is triggered. This causes the pump to operate as soon as you start it. Check if the float at the base comes up when you press it by hand. If not the float spring might be stuck and pressing the flood switch underneath.
The drain hose on a dishwasher must be long enough to go up above the water level of the dishwasher and then back down to connect to the sink drain. This is to keep gravity from draining the tank. However, you probably replaced the drain hose the same way it was originally.
Try checking the float and float switch for smooth operation. Maybe the float has debris holding it up from dropping to the true water level.
Try to feel the temperature of water inside the dishwasher. If it is normal room temperature for the hot wash cycles then it is likely the heater is faulty. It is not easy to replace unless you have good experience with repairing dishwashers.
This problem is mostly caused by the drain pump or a restricted drain line. Try taking the end of the drain hose off under the sink and re-checking the drain-out condition. If the unit is still not draining, I recommend replacing the drain pump.
Other possibilities could be that the sump is blocked, or the control or harness may need to be replaced.
After reading a few of the other Haier models troubles, I pulled the unit out and tip it at 45 degrees backwards for around minute. Water pored from the back of the unit, once cleaned water up reinstalled unit and all seems to be back in working order.
turn the valves to the left if there the screw in type or parraell if the quick open type the first thing a dishwasher does when you start it is drain for a few minutes then stops then fills with hot water run the water as hot at the sink as you can before starting the washer there is a float in the tub that can shut the water valve off if its not seated on the safety switch after the drain at the start of cycles stops then you should hear the water valve open and start the fill let me know and we will go from there
