The cycle will stop before going into "pro-dry" stage, possibly interrupted during the "rinse" stage. This doesn't happen every cycle, but often enough to be a problem.

When the cycle stops, if I run the diagnostic, the diagnostic reports a mix of 6-3, 6-4, 9-1, 9-2 codes.
After clearing the errors and proceed with the diagnostic load, the diagnostic load cycle completes successfully.

Run another normal load and see what error code you get.

Intermittent problems are the hardest to nail down.

I run a normal load after the diagnostic cycle, everything works.

Agreed. This is not ideal.

Any other options I can try? I bet if it happens again, it would have shown me any combination of 6-3, 6-4, 9-1, 9-2

No suds in the tub. And the float seems to work fine. Except for the cycle stops before drying, leaving dishes wet, the wash stage appear to work (took reasonably long to complete the washing)

I guess I'll have to focus on these issues:
1. Check operation in Service Diagnostics
cycle. Listen for cam clicking as it rotates
or inspect shaft with mirror to see if rotating
during diverter interval. If rotating, it is likely
the Sensor circuit.
2. Unplug dishwasher or disconnect power
and check connections in Diverter Sensor/
Motor circuit with meter. Fix/replace open
connections/parts.
3. Inspect diverter sensor for evidence of
water or contaminants. If yes, replace.
Check operation of diverter motor during
diagnostics. Inspect diverter shaft with
mirror. If motor appears to be on (vibrates,
hums), but you see limited rotation, replace
diverter and seal.
1. Unplug dishwasher or disconnect power
and replace control.
2. Inspect diverter motor and connections
for overheating/shorting. If evidence of
overheating/shorting exists, replace.

If only I had a "rapid advance mode" in the customer cycle, so I can advance directly to the dry stage when cycle got interrupted. Then I can still make the dishwasher functional, though manual.

Yes, I agree.

Other that that, with it being intermittent, its very difficult to find the bad part. Check all your wiring connections underneath the dishwasher to those parts to make sure they are tight and secure.
