Can you explain exactly what you mean by "turning on and off" after being started? What is the control panel doing? etc...

control panel seems normal with lights remaining lite continuously, it sounds like it is stopping and starting again, does not run for any long period of time
Appliance Technician: Tyler Z., Appliance Doc replied 7 months ago

OK perfect. That means that either your control board is bad and cutting power to the motor when it shouldn't, or it means that your motor is overheating and needs to be replaced. You'll need to pull the dishwasher out and unplug the large circulation pump motor and put a multimeter between the 2 power lead wires going to the motor. Test power to this pump motor when the dishwasher is running. If power cuts in and out, you need to replace the main control board inside the door in the upper right hand corner. If power is constant and never cuts in and out, your circulation motor would need to be replaced. I'm sorry to hear you're having problems on such a new unit regardless of what the problem is.

got it, do I run test while water is being supplied to washer or dry run?
Appliance Technician: Tyler Z., Appliance Doc replied 7 months ago

You will need water to run or you'll get an error code before the pump even turns on.
