Kenmore Dishwasher 665.14753N510 stops mid cycle

Hi everyone,

I've noticed that our dishwasher has been behaving strangely as of late. It seems to stop mid cycle since the light would progress from blue (running) to red (drying) to green (completed) on the Normal wash cycle. Now it starts with blue and after a while the dishwasher just stops and the light goes off completely. The dishes seem to be clean and even dry (even though we usually run it overnight so it might be that it just has enough time to evaporate).

I ran a diagnostic and got the following error codes (error code explanations from searspartsdirect.com/diy/error-codes/dishwasher-repair/1234583/kenmore-he-dishwasher/0582), in this order:
  1. F9E1 - Electronic control board can't detect the position of the diverter disc
  2. F6E4 - The float switch is open
  3. F6E3 - Suds or air are in the water pump
  4. F9E2 - Diverter motor is stuck on
I am not sure which of these error codes would cause the symptoms I outlined above. Or if they are things that can / should be fixed. Any advice or help related to the error codes or the symptoms I described would be highly appreciated.
I don't have the tech sheet for that model but there should be an interval right after the four error codes are displayed to clear all the error codes by pressing the Hi-Temp keypad. Look on your tech sheet. Clear all the error codes and let the diagnostic cycle finish. Then try to run a normal cycle and see if it finishes.
Hi, I'm attaching your tech. data sheet below.

F9E1= Diverter can't find Position
--->Corroded or loose connection in diverter sensor/motor circuit.

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, then likely the sensor circuit.

2. Unplug dishwasher or disconnect power and check connections/parts in Diverter Sensor and Motor Circuit with meter. Fix/replace connections/parts.
3. Inspect diverter sensor for evidence of water or contaminants. If yes, replace.

--->Mechanical binding of diverter shaft/disc.
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, then replace diverter and seal.

Watch this video to make sure your diverter disc didn't break or slip out of place either:

--->Open fuse on control to diverter motor.
--->Diverter Motor Drive Circuit on the control.
Refer to “Meter Check of Loads” section and “Control Pinout” diagram.

Here's the diverter motor for your model:

The Diagnostic Cycle has 27 intervals and starts in interval 27 and ends on interval 1. The total time is about 24 minutes.

Interval 27 turns all the LEDs on as a display check.

Interval 26 turns off all LEDs during pause prior to displaying error codes.

A tone will play when the first error is displayed

Intervals 25 - 24 - 23 - 22 are for error codes, newest to oldest.

Interval 21:
Press HI TEMP key in this interval to clear customer error history. If Hi Temp key does not respond, the control panel is in “Sleep Mode.” Open and close the door to wake up the control panel and then press HI TEMP to clear the customer error history.
