My dishwasher will stop anytime during the cycle and the start/resume light will blink as if I opened and then closed the door. I can the push start/resume and it will continue where it left off. It happens randomly and can happen several times In a row. Sometimes, the cycle will complete without it occurring once. I have assumed it is the latch switch shorting out. There is no information I can find with these exact symptoms. The closest I can find is that the thermostat may be the issue but my manual says the dishwasher will have to reset before being restarted. Do you have an idea if the door switch is the problem? Thanks.

ANSWER Hello Daniel, The first thing I would check is the units' mounting. You see, the door switches have to make in order for the unit to run. If the unit is loose in its' mounted position, the door switches can be losing connection. If the dishwasher is mounted firmly, you should still check to insure the door is striking squarely because if it isn't, the door switches, or just one of them, can be losing connection which will cause the issue you are describing.
