dishwasher gets stuck mid cycle

my Kenmore Elite Ultra Wash dishwasher model #665.16579 seems to get stuck at 53 minutes and just keeps washing but the timer won't proceed past the 53 minutes. I could watch the clock for a half an hour and the timer on the washer stays at 53 minutes. Please help

The dishwasher running for a long time can be a waste of electricity and I am sorry for the inconvenience. I did some research and I was able to find two links that will provide you with some good information. I hope this helps while you wait for your expert response.

I know that it can be very frustrating to have issues with your dishwasher. There are several components that can cause a dishwasher to stop functioning correctly. This include the heating element, the thermistor, the connections or even the thermal cut off. The image below will provide the troubleshooting for this model. Some of the testing is going to be very extensive, so I would recommend that you have a technician diagnose and repair the issue. If you would like to schedule service, just click on this link:
