still have not fixed my issue. I have not found any wires that are of a bad connection. I have looked through them many times. If no one has any more tips for me, i believe it is time to wave the white flag. This thing has become more trouble than it is worth. I have never been impressed with it ability to actually clean the dishes and it seems to take so long to do it that it can not be very efficient either. I believe it has come down to a bad motor but im not positive. If that is the case, im reluctant to replace the motor due to the fact that all i keep reading and hearing about is how many different issues this machine has. If i sink money into a motor what will be next. Thanks for the advice anyways and i will be using this site in the future.
