Kenmore Elite Dishwasher - 66516493300 - Stops randomly during a wash cycle with water in the tub

Kenmore Elite Dishwasher - 66516493300 - My dishwasher has begun to stop randomly in the middle of a wash cycle before the entire cycle is complete. None of the exterior cycle indicators lights or control panel LED's are lite when it stops. I can begin a new cycle but the same condition exists and the cycle never completes. There is always dirty water in the bottom of the tub when it stops. Beginning a new wash cycle will always drain the tub. The water seems to always fill to the proper height and it is being heated.

The only cycle that seems to work properly is the quick rinse cycle. That runs for the expected amount of time and always drains the tub.

Do I need a new Electronic Control Board or could it possibly be the food sensor or check valve?

Good morning. I have reviewed your question. Your explanation is very thorough. I have provided two links below that I feel will be helpful. The first link will give you a series of steps you can do to reset the unit. The second link will provide you a page with a number of links, all focusing on a dishwasher that does not complete the cycle. Review this information and keep in mind that you will be getting an expert response within the next two business days. I hope this is helpful and have a pleasant morning.
