My dishwasher's Clean light has been blinking and will not complete a cycle.  After searching online, I have found that by performing the reset sequence many users have had success - I have not.  While the reset allows the dishwasher to reset and start a wash, it doesnt complete the cycle.  I have also found by reading online that a few items that could be causing the problem are the heater element and the thermostat - both of which i have replaced and I still cant get the dishwasher to complete a full wash/dry cycle - it stops part of the way through and begins to flash the clean light.  So it brings me to ask a few questions:  how can i properly diagnose the problem so that i can repair it? does anyone have any other suggestions as to what it could be?  I am reluctant to call a repairman at this point since the 2 initial 'rapairs' ( heating element and thermostat) were pretty easy to replace myself.  Any help is greatly appreciated.  Thanks.

Background info on causes of this problem:

http://fixitnow.com/wp/2006/03/20/whirlpool-built-dishwasher-includes-kitchenaid-and-some-kenmores-wont-start-clean-led-blinks-seven-times/

Most of the time, this problem is related to poor or no water circulation: gookus in the pump or mascerator, jammed mascerator, or fried wash motor bearings (very common):
