This dishwasher was purchased around the first week in September 2008 and has been a "lemon" since purchased, the pump has been replaced four or five times, top rack has been replaced as well was other problems.
This same unit stopped working mid cycle on October 9th, 2014.

A repair technician was called who reported to this consumer that a white plastic two piece plug inside the dishwasher where the line comes in and connects to the dishwasher was melted.
