I appreciate your reply Raquel. This particular dishwasher has a dial, and no electronic pad. But I suppose there still could be some kind of short. My wishful thinking is that there might be something obvious that I am simply overlooking.

From the description you give I suspect the problem is with the door switches or with the power connection itself.

Are you sure there is power to the two wires the dishwasher is wired two. Make sure the wall switch or breaker is turned on.

If there is power then the door switches would be next on the list.

If the power and door switches are okay then the control might be at fault.

You will need a volt meter to check this problem further. At the door switch on the black to white wire should be voltage. I'd suggest a technician check live voltage on the door switches.

If nothing is working then I suspect there is no voltage to the control. The control might fail but it would generally only fail at one thing and not everything.

Check what you can and reply with any additional details for further assistance.

Fred M. You were correct...there was a power connection that I was overlooking! What looked like a switch that would turn the garbage disposal on was a switch wired specifically to the dishwasher...who knew? (Oh, you did!) I needed to flip on--what looks like a light switch--first, then select the wash cycle, then engage the dishwasher lock...picky, picky, picky! Thank-you:)
