Hello, this is Dave and I'm happy to help you. This will happen if the door switch opens while it is running. Next time it happens push in on the door in the center. If it starts it may just take an adjustment but if not the switch needs checked and replaced if it is the problem.

Now the unit starts and then stops suddenly and all the lights go out - in about a minute they come back on with start/resume light flashing

You should confirm that where the house wiring attaches the dishwasher the connections are good. We need to check simple things before we assume the control is doing this. Anything that causes power to be lost to the control can do this.
