When I start a cycle the drain light comes on and it says 3 mins. There is no visible water in it. It makes noise, on and off, for the 3 mins and then the machine turns off entirely. Still bone dry inside. It did this a couple weeks ago too, but by the 3rd or 4th time of shutting down it ran the cycle.

Sounds like possibly a control board problem, disconnect power to your dishwasher and see if you notice if the control board has any burnt spots on it.

Here's the control board for your model, if needed:

Also, try a reset.

Run the SERVICE DIAGNOSTICS CYCLE, and let it run all the way through to reset it back to default.

Entry sequence: Press any 3 keys in the sequence 1-2-3, 1-2-3, 1-2-3 with no more than 1 second between key presses. NOTE: Some models have replaced the “Clean” LED with “Completed.”
The Service Diagnostics Cycle will start when the door is closed.

--->Invoking Service Diagnostics clears all status and last run information from memory and restores defaults. It also forces the next cycle to be a sensor calibration cycle.

LET IT RUN ALL THE WAY THROUGH: Service diagnostic cycle will take about 23 minutes.
