This just happened to me - a 10-yr old Sears Kenmore.... was thinking about throwing in the towel and getting a new one. The control panel was lit up and working - you could select any cycle but when I hit the "start" button I would get a quick error signal "beep beep beep beep" but no error code (F22, F23 etc...). I noticed that the clicking sound made ...

Don't do it. It's a small job, even for a relatively inexperienced homeowner, to install an additional direct feed from your dehumidifier into the main drainpipe. For that matter, if you never use the dishwasher, disconnect its inputs and outputs completely, and use the connection from its drainline (into the main drainpipe) for your dehumidifier.

Some dishwashers will pump water even when not in a cycle (just poured a litre or so into mine to rinse it and it pumped automatically - the door was open so not a cycle.
