I replaced pump motor assembly and also the escutcheon at the top of the door, transferring all of the parts (control panel, timer, etc.) from the old escutcheon. At first, the detergent dispenser level (number 861 on diagram) wasn't in the correct position. After starting dishwasher, realized problem and stopped it mid-cycle. Re-assembled to get lever in correct position. Dishwasher now works, but it has some unusual and very short "spurts" at some points during the cycle, lasting only a second or two. This was never the case previously. I wonder if the timer/sequence switch is out of sync, or has gone bad.
Based on the information it sounds like the sequence switch would most likely be the cause of the unit having spurts during the cycle.
