Any flashing lights or error codes when this occurs?
Disconnect power to the unit for 15 minutes and see if the unit resets. I do not have access to a phone.
And no lights on/flashing?
Unfortunately this is a faulty control board that needs to be replaced.

Try this: press the "Heated Dry" button. Press the "Normal" button and then press the "Heated Dry" button. Press the "Normal" button again to reset the dishwasher. Let me know what happens.
Try to run a cycle and see what happens.
If it is clicking then the motor is indeed faulty as you suspected. You will need a new motor.
At this point I would just replace the motor first.
