Thanks for your response. Is there any way to tell that is what it is? Is there a way to test it to make sure it is the problem before we order a replacement part? Also, could it be anything else? What might cause it to go bad.
One last symtpom...the impellar "clicks" as though it is trying to go around although it is unable to go around. This occurs when we set the dishwasher to the "on" cycle...but still - there are no lights on the panel, etc. You still think it is the control panel?
