Hi....Bob here... I see you are having a problem with your dishwasher..How long after the cycle starts does it stop..?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
maybe 3 or4 seconds
Expert:  Bob L Your Appl Pal replied 5 years ago.
From what you are explaining sounds like you have a fault in the heating circuit...If you remove the bottom kickplate..There will be a service tech sheet taped to the back side of the plate...It will show you how to run a diagnostics test to pin point the problem...If the problem I have seen this happen also with worn wiring inside the door..Check the wiring to the computer.

I will check the wiring to the computer While I was waiting for your reply I tried it in a rinse only cycle did the same thing that shouldn't involve heat right?
Expert:  Bob L Your Appl Pal replied 5 years ago.
Correct...Sounds like you have a computer problem..Either that or a loose wire..To be sure ..Access the service manual and do a diagnostics on the unit..
