My dishwasher does not start anymore. The bottom on the machine

Resolved Question:

My dishwasher does not start anymore. The bottom on the machine had about 3 inches of water just sitting. I had to empty it by hand. When I push the start button on it .....it does nothing. Barry has always come through for us in the past. What do u think it might be? John XXXXX

thats okay, stand by please.
Expert:  Bryan replied 2 years ago.
okay does your digital display or any lights at all come on ? the keys when you press them do they beep at all or does this just seem completely dead? no power what so ever?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

The lights on the switch console do come on and work.

Expert:  Bryan replied 2 years ago.
oh okay , but when you press start nothing correct ? first thing you need to check is the door switches, do you have a volt or multi meter ? if so click this blue link and watch the video. it shows you how to test them. http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Door-Switch/8269209/830947?modelNumber=KUDS01FLSS1 remove the screws around the inner door panel and lift it up to access the door latch assembly where the switches are.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Right I press start, nothing. Yes I have a meter. Where would my door switch be? I dont see any switch on my door opening anywhere.

Expert:  Bryan replied 2 years ago.
its inside the door in the latch assembly the switch is number 12 and the latch assembly is number 9. you need to take the inner door skin off to access it, It looks like this model only has one.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.


Ok, I just removed the switch but my needle moves therefore the switch is good, correct?

Expert:  Bryan replied 2 years ago.
well does it move to 0 ohms ? like in the video ?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.


Yes, when i depress the white cap on the switch the needle moves to 0 ohms

Expert:  Bryan replied 2 years ago.
okay. well its good,in the door did you see this ? Main Control Board(NNN) NNN-NNNNMain Product View its the main control board and thats whats bad. heres a link to order it. http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Main-Control-Board/8564543/1060953?modelNumber=KUDS01FLSS1?RCAID=1000065
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

do you believe its this part or do you believe it could be the thermal fuse?

Expert:  Bryan replied 2 years ago.
well if the thermal fuse was gone the control lights wouldn't light up and you say they do. you can test it if you wish but I believe its good. Thermal Fuse(NNN) NNN-NNNNMain Product View heres a link to a video to test it. http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Thermal-Fuse/8193762/959376?modelNumber=KUDS01FLSS1?RCAID=1000065 you can order it at that link if you need it also but I don't think you do.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
