first checked drain tube, no blockage
then tried to run machine but start/cancel button failed to function
saw online that similar folks had problem with button/panel and I unscrewed the torx bolts holding the front panel together to get at the circuit stuff.
sure enough, burn spot on circuit ribbon.
replaced main control panel and ran diagnostics, field test instructions, etc.
turned out the drain pump was dead also.
2 parts and ~$100.00 later I have a "new" dishwasher...I guess it's worth it.
cheaper than a repair guy or new appliance.
apparently this fix is not real uncommon on these dishwashers. Good luck!
