Thank you !

Have you verified that you still have voltage at the junction box ? down where the line cord attaches to the unit.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
there is power at the dishwasher. I've got a small voltmeter that lights up on hot lines. The line going into the junction box is hot, and other smaller lines on the dishwasher are hot as well, so I think there is power. I don't know exactly what voltage though.
Expert:  Whrlp Master Tech replied 1 year ago.

Ok Yes now knowing the voltage is a issue!

When you open and close the door if you press cancel will the unit do anything at all?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I don't see anything happen at all when I open/close the door, or when I press cancel.
Expert:  Whrlp Master Tech replied 1 year ago.

ok can you open the door and remove the screws on the inside of the door across the top of the door ( s=crews and the two screw down the side to open the console area up ?

Or if this is a brand new unit would you rather just call for a in warranty service call on the unit?
