First off, Thank you to everyone who has posted the above suggestions! Well I believe I made a mistake with the original symptoms. I no longer think I have a circulation problem, I took Fred's advice above and the pump and motor is working. What I did notice is that when I run a test cycle and open the door steam does not roll out like it use to. I'm now wondering if it is a thermostat or heat element that is not working and causing the dishes to not get clean. If I open the door and splash a little water on the element there is a slight sizzle so it is heating up to some degree. If it is one of these how do I isolate which one it is.
