Kenmore UltraWash dishwasher draining during wash/rinse cycle

\015 Kenmore ultrawash quietguard deluxe dishwasher drains during most portions of a cycle. Normally it will perform the pre-rinse OK but not always, and it seems if the inlet water is hot it will drain during pre-wash.\012\012During wash cycle it will usually make it for a little ways but then the water will begin to exit. This is identified by a noisy sounding pump when it is dry. I can add water to it manually and it will continue a bit and drain some more. I do not believe the drain pump is running. It is very plainly heard during normal operation when it begins draining. The water draining during this problem is usually fairly slow. I had believed it was a siphon issue but opened up the pipe near the drain and problem persisted.\012\012It is very rare for it to run a complete cycle without going at least partially dry during some part of a cycle. This has been happening for the last 2.5 years. It came with the house. I've cleaned that thing inside out and up and down many times, and in fact run a little vinegar in most rinse cycles just because our water is so hard it prevents deposits on the plastics. There's no bones, plastics, glass or even food in there having removed most of the inner tub, wash arms and filters. We've had the pump out one time and could not identify anything visually wrong, but noticed a date two years newer than the manufacture of the dishwasher written in marker so it obviously had the bottom assembly replaced, probably under warranty.\012\012Anyone have an idea what is causing this? I can't seem to find anyone on the Net with a similar problem. I'd like to repair it if possible.\015

Kenmore dishwasher My Kenmore dishwasher model 630.16302401 is not successfully completing wash cycle. When I hit "normal" and turn it on, water enters the d/w, and the sprayers (both top and bottom), spray water. Approx. 10 mins. later, the water is drained. At that point, it appears that water never again enters the d/w to complete the wash cycle. In fact, the soap in the dispenser does get released, and the door opens.

We recently bought a house with a Kenmore 363.16222100 (?) dishwasher. No manual. Monday night it didn't drain properly and leaked some water on the kitchen floor. The cycle had finished when we saw the water on the floor. We bailed out the excess water. I took off the drain cover and insert. I couldn't see an obvious clog problem, but cleaned it out. Then I tried a short cycle, interrupting it to shorten it. No problem. Water seemed to drain fine. I did find a part that looked like a straw and
