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 and I can get you the correct part information.
Well that sounds like an interesting trick. Just confiscated the wife's hairdryer, will crack open a rolling rock, and give it a go! Will let you know how it turns out....shortly.
No change, same lights will switch on for the cycles, with nothing for the other listed options as previously indicated. Have not used the dishwasher for over a month (been busy, and using the old fashioned method is just as quick)...so if water had gotten in there would have been a lot of time for this to dissipate dry....behavior today is the same as that observed a month ago.
The panel is white on white. All white machine.
