Thank you! Since the drain is working, the latch is not in question.


I suspect your touch panel is experiencing a failure. You may need to replace the control panel but there is a trick you can try first. Cut the power to the appliance. Use a hair dryer to heat the panel up until very warm while "massaging" the buttons. Often times, this will restore operation. Be sure to get the panel very warm but not hot enough to damage the plastic. If this does not work, the panel will need to be replaced. Let me know what happens, please.

Heated and massaged buttons - no luck.

That panel will need to be replaced. What color is the dishwasher, please?
