Kenmore dishwasher skipping cycles

Ultra Wash Model 17772990, Ser. FK3149419

The following is happening full loads of dishes and both detergent cups filled.

First wash cycle. Washer fills, sensing light on control panel blinks (very quick flash), washer drains without running first wash cycle.

Second wash cycle: see first wash cycle.

The washer fills and washes on the third wash cycle, and completes operation of three rinse cycles.

Any diagnoses/troubleshooting tips are most appreciated. It's an old machine, but I'm a bachelor who's only used it once a week for the life of the unit. Hoping I can fix.

Many thanks, PW
