Replaced the lower seal, drain impeller,chopper blade, and wash impeller. Problem is still not solved but the inner parts have been replaced. Only thing logical next is the check valve. Unit cycles well and if I turn the dial to just before the rinse cycle and watch, I do see water draining from the unit...Of course while replacing these parts, I checked other things and found a loose spring behind the front cover. It can be seen on the diagram as it is part of the detergent door mechanism (or so I believe), but it is not clear on where the spring actually connects to.
