Are you sure the breaker is big enough to carry the Amps needed to start the drying cycle. You know that due to inductance it takes almost twice as many amps to start a motor as it does to run it.Find out how many Watts it uses and divide it by 120VAC and it will give the maximum amps it will draw. See if the breaker is high enough amp for it. A 25 Amp breaker should be efficient. I hope this helps you and if I can help you in anyway in the future let me know.

Built in Warning!
To avoid personal injury or even death, always disconnect your
appliance from its power source--that is, unplug it or break the
connection at the circuit breaker or fuse box--before you do any
troubleshooting or repair work on your appliance. Also, because some
components may have sharp edges, use caution while working on your
Turn off curcuit breaker. Mop up suds and water with towel. Remove kick panel mop up water here and dry out with a fan. Replace Kick Panel. Reset Curcuit breaker. Add one cup of Vingar to bottom of tub. Run a rinse and hold cycle. Repeat if necessary.
Try using a quick cycle and see what happens. Don't use sanitize or any extra heat cycle. Sometimes during sanitize high temp rinse or other cycles the timer motor is stopped until the water heats up. The sensor could be defective. Not all machines do this and I'm not real familiar with your particular one.
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.
I have seen a lot of these older dishwasher break the wires running up to the timer. the break right near the bottom of the door where they flex when you open and close it. I would turn of the power, remove all the torx screws along the inside edges of the door, as well as the 2 on the bottom edge of the door facing up (you cant see them, just gotta feel around for them) and loosen the 2 on the top of the door near the latch ( so you can tilt the control panel out to remove the outer door) follow the wires from the timer down to the bottom of the door and see if any are broken or missing insulation. If not, take the bottom panel of the dishwasher as well and locate the 2 terminals hooked to the heater and check them with an ohmeter to see if they are grounded to the frame of the dishwasher. the dishwasher may be doing a heated rinse just before the dry cycle even though you have low temperature and no heated dry selected, so the problem may still be the heater. Good Luck!
