Hi Bryan, The unit appears to be hung up in water exit mode. When I hit the start

button I can hear the exit pump motor run for about 90 seconds and the heater

seams to be on. I hit restart again and this cycle repeats. I will check the float switch

now, that could be the problem.

ok i'm finally home , lets get to work. I'll check model # XXXXX be right back. Bryan

Hi Bryan, You diagnosed the problem quickly. Yes it was the float switch. I cleaned

out the crud build up in the float area and the dishwasher is back and fully operational.

Thank You, Customer/p>
