Dishwasher cycles for around 4 hours. Opening door every 45 minutes bottom full soapy water.Eventually drains. unit cycles spraying water seems normal just long. Power outage during cycle .could be cause.
Yes, the power outage could have caused an issue. The most likely issue that would have been caused would be a issue with the heater circuit. With the unit washing for 4 hours it sounds as though the water temperature is not hot enough.
No water. Check water line, ok. Change water intake. Still no water.
You will want to check to see if the water valve is getting power to it. If not then check the float switch to make sure that the switch is not bad. If the switch checks ok then you will want to check the wiring from the valve back to the control board and if ok then replace the control module.
Unit not draining, water pumps when running during wash cycle.
Answer Hello Randy. Check and see if the drain hose is clogged. If it is clear, you will want to check the drain pump for debris. If the pump is clear, and there is power coming to the pump during drain, you will need to replace the pump assembly. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. Hope this helps. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
