Repairman replaced the control panel, but that didn't solve the problem. I googled it and found the partsselect video showing how this could be the problem. I decided the $25 part was worth the chance. The part showed-up in a couple days, I replaced it just like in the video, and have been running the dishwasher ever since w/ no problems. Saved me approximately $1,000 and the hassle of installing a new dishwasher.
