Recently my dishwasher has been stopping midcycle it runs for about 20 minutes then quits. It starts fine and doesn't sound like it's having trouble running. Most of the time the heat dry light and high temp wash light will be flashing when I come back to it. Other times it will be completely off and I have to reset it (the breaker is never tripped) the the same lights flash after either I reset it or it sits long enough.
It usually has some water sitting in the bottom and I'm able to start a drain cycle and it drains fine. A few times the soap door hasn't even opened.
We have checked the drain pump, heating element and door latch assembly for continuity and they all showed up as conducting. I've cleaned out the drain "filter" and cleaned everything else. No loose wires on control board.
What else should I be checking?
Thanks for all the help.
P.S sorry if my terminology isn't quite right.

I'm in the same situation you describe....cycle runs fine until the unit goes dark as if the thermal fuse has blown (nothing works on the control panel). Then you come back in the AM and all the lights are flashing. I can press 'cancel' and the standing water from the stalled wash drains out and you're good for another wash cycle. Next cycle runs and the same thing happens mid cycle.

Never seen anything like this before....I have replaced multiple thermal fuses over the last year. I've cleaned drain lines, filter, etc.

Are you still dealing with this issue, fit it or buy a new one?

My unit is a 12 year old Kitchen Aide.
