I have an Amana Master Clean 9010 dishwasher with electronic touchpad
controls. It's ~10 years old. For the last 2 years or so, about half
the time, the dishwasher gets 'stuck' at the 11 minutes left mark and
stays there unless I unlatch/relatch the door to interrupt the cycle.
When the machine gets 'stuck,' the machine doesn't stop, it just stays
at 11 minutes, continuing the wash cycle. If I do nothing, it'll stay
stuck at the 11 minute mark forever. After I unlatch/relatch the door,
the machine immediately drains normally, resumes counting down, moves
on to the next rinse, and completes normally.
What has me scratching my head is that it only happens about half the
time. There's no error code. And it happens with the same ~50%
frequency at the 11 minute mark whether I choose regular wash, pots
and pans, or light wash. It's quite frustrating, because I don't feel
safe starting a load before leaving for the day.
Anyone have a clue as to what's going on and how I might correct it?
