I know that it can be very frustrating to have issue with your dishwasher. There are several components that will keep the dishwasher from start. These include the door switch, the control board or the key pad. I would suggest that you try to reset the control by shutting off the house circuit breaker for the dishwasher. Leave the breaker off for 3 minutes. Reset the breaker and see if the dishwasher will start properly. Make sure that the dishwasher door is firmly closed. There is a micro-switch in that door latch. If that part is defective, the dishwasher will not start. If this is the case a service technician will normally need to diagnose and repair this type of failure. Here is a link for the Sears Service website: Sears Home Services . I hope this helps. If you need further assistance, please reply to this thread. Thank you for using Manage My Life.

If the diagnostics test run and worked fine, then your problem is the keypad itself. There is a test that you can try that will help you determine this. The image below will provide these instructions for you. Please let me know if you need anything else.
