Our Kenmore Elite dishwasher is stuck in the rinse cycle and

Resolved Question:

Our Kenmore Elite dishwasher is stuck in the rinse cycle and not allowing any water to flow???
Submitted: 4 years ago.
Category: Appliance
Expert:  esequiel walker replied 4 years ago.
hi is the timer manual or computerized
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

Hey! The timer is computerized (thus turning the power off to see if it would re-start; ha, works on my computer) Anyway, its a Kenmore elite bought about 1 year ago...

When we restart it, it goes back to the timer (57 minutes) on the rinse cycle. I let it go thru the timed cycle and thought i could restart it but no luck... always goes back to the spot where it quit?? Why no water flow??

Expert:  esequiel walker replied 4 years ago.
hi when u first set the cycle then press start the board srelay shouldclick then right way the water should come in .try this press back and forth between hi-tempwash and sani rinse several times to get all lights to come on if not then press sani rinse and heated dry back and forth several times. one of though combos will start the test mode. the test mode will stop the light from blinking and you can use the dishwasher again
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

the power button is on the left...on the right is the black LED read-out with pictures. Underneath the LED read-out is from left to right: button with a clock sign on it and a "h" by the side; next button is Top Only; next button is Scrub; next is Normal, next is China, Quick and Rinse buttons. Underneath the China, Quick and Rinse is Cancel Drain

Expert:  esequiel walker replied 4 years ago.
hi ok if the timer relays are stuck it will not advance
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

The clock will wind down but it will not switch from Rinse (and no water) to dry; and when you restart it from scratch it goes back to 57 minutes in the Rinse cycle with no water and does not advance to Dry
