This is usually caused by the heating circuit not heating the water. And most of the time, this is NOT caused by a bad heating element, but instead, by a bad controller. A solder connection to the heater relay has gone bad. You can see this easy enough if you take the control module apart. (Depending on the model, the controller is located EITHER in the door, or else on the bottom right-side of the DW.) It is possible to re-solder this connection and get your dishwasher working again, but this is only a temporary solution because the problem is actually in the relay - the contacts have gotten pitted, causing resistance which causes heat which travels down the leg of the relay, causing the solder to melt. The correct solution is to either replace that relay or the complete control module.

My washer will not switch from one cycle to the next

I understand that your washer is not advancing and stuck on one cycle. If you provide a Model and serial number, it will be helpful.

My dishes still come out do i set the washer to dry the dishes

there should be a setting or a button to turn the heat dry on and off, if it is on and dishes are not drying then the next time you do a load of dishes pay attention to the cycles, after the rinse cycle is complete the heat should come on. if not you could have either a bad heating coil or a bad relay.

Washer Doesn't move from cycle to cycle

this washer has a problem with the lid hinge screws coming loose. check the left hand hinge and you will find the screws loose.
this cause the lid switch to not engage and then nothing will happen until it thinks the lid is closed.
try to tighten the screws and listen to see if the switch "clicks" when you open and close the lid.
that should fix it until the screws come loose again.

Washer fills with water but does not advance to next cycle

If this is a rotary timer, nudge the timer slightly in it's normal direction of rotation. If the timer keeps going (it might hang up at the next point in the cycle, but nudge it again), I suspect the timer needs to be replaced. They get weak.
