My Repair & Advice
After pushing the start button, the dishwasher would try to start the wash cycle but would eventually time out. After running diagnostics it was flashing 6 times which meant it had something to do with the wash motor. I actually had a tech come out to make sure this is what was wrong and he tried replacing the board first, which turned out not to be the problem. After a $60 service call fee and no fix to the problem, I decided to replace the wash motor assembly. It took me about an hour to get the assembly switched out and the dishwasher fired right up when I was finished.
