The pump has a filter to protect it so any large particles will be trapped by the filter. I suggest you run it without any dishes over a full cycle, and then clean the filter.

Most likely a fault (short circuit or ground fault ) within the heating elements of the dishwasher. Although the house circuit breaker will reset within a minute or so (manually of course) the built in protective devices will take more time to cool down.

don't know if it'll help but won't hurt to unplug it for a couple of minutes and see if repluging it resets the unit. good luck.

Find out why the upper arm isn't moving. It may be partially plugged. This would be the cause of the spotting.

There is a trouble shooting document behind the kick panel at the bottom of the machine. Follow the steps to determine which component is at fault. It could be corrosion at the P1 connector:
My whirlpool dishwasher gold GU2475XTVQ0 had rapid blinking lights that started with the "4 Hour Delay" LED and changed to others when other buttons were pressed. The machine would not run. I followed the instructions located behind the kick panel and verified the keypad was the issue and not the control circuit by elimination.
The big surprise for me was that when I used a straight pin to resistance check all of the buttons, they checked out OK. I reconnected the 14 pin connector (P1) to the control and found that the buttons/LEDs were behaving correctly! I believe that pushing the straight pin into the 14 pin connector removed any corrosion in the 10 year old device and permitted the keypad to communicate with the control again.
I reassembled the dishwasher door and it ran with no problems. I was ready to replace the keypad for $150, but didn't have to!

Return. Any attempted repair could void warranty. Just be sure it's not an installation error.

Check the food grinder (small blade spins against a screen) in the bottom of the dish washer drain. I found the grinder to be inoperative and clogged which reduced / stopped flow of the wash water. Also, small pieces of clear plastic food wrap can block flow.

sound like a repair man problem, but at 18 months I would think it is still under warranty. If not at the store if you pay with some visa cards they give you and extra warranty so you could check with them as well. hope it works.
