KitchenAid Dishwasher (KUDE20FBSS0) Cycling on and off about 5 times or so in the beginning of the wash (I hear water and a little draining) but then just shuts off. I always heard the cycling on and off but usually just after that it went into wash mode. For the last month sometimes it would wash and sometimes it wouldn't. This thing has to be at least 5 years old, not sure of exact age though. Any ideas or help would be greatly appreciated as always.
Thanks!

OK, stick with me Jake, I'm an amateur at this - I work on ranges and dryers. So I followed the entry sequence (123123123) and now all LEDs are lit up and staying lit up. What do I do from here to initiate the testing?

So I figured out to shut the door after I got into diagnostic mode...green light finish light on front of unit flashed 8 times with a pause, then 4 times. It repeated this a few cycles now green light is on solid and I can hear water and things happening inside the machine. Will keep you posted.

8-4 is DRAINING--->DRAIN MOTOR ELECTRICAL PROBLEM.

Is the dishwasher not draining properly?

Check for a foreign object in the drain pump causing this problem. When you click the drain pump part link below you will see a video of how to remove and replace it.

Here's the drain pump for your model:
