Why does my dishwasher stop mid-cycle

If your dishwasher stops in the middle of a cycle, first things first open and close the door to be sure it’s latched. Check to see whether the house circuit to the dishwasher is blown. If a light switch on the wall near the dishwasher runs power to the dishwasher, be sure it’s flipped to the On position.

If these simple tips don’t help, then a faulty door latch, broken control panel or faulty electronic control board could be the issue. In some models, a broken heating element is the reason the dishwasher may stop. In other models, a faulty vent fan can be the reason the dishwasher stops mid-cycle.
