Can you get it into the test mode?  If so, what codes is it giving you? It could also be stuck in the Sales Demo Mode.  Or it could have a wash motor error causing the control to shut down.  Need to know what codes it has stored first.

Could get in test mode, but it dies before any codes come up, once i reset breaker lights come back on. I did order wash motor kit, will go back on friday to install.

I've had this problem before and WP had me replace the wire harness and wash motor. I think the wash motor has a controller on it that can go out. I never got the call back so I'm not sure if it fixed the problem. Let us know what you find out.

big buck, On the newer Whirpool dishwashers, the Control board is looking for current draw from the wash motor.  On these suckers, they will fill, and then try and wash, if the wash motor is bad, the control will pick up on the not normal current draw, and the machine will revert right into a drain cycle and turn off. sounds maybe a little different then what you got, but figured id throw it out there for ya.  drove me nuts the first time i saw it.
