Hello, flip the breaker off or unplug the unit for 5 minutes. If that doesn't fix the issue, the main control board on the bottom right of the machine will need to be replaced. This is actually a fairly common issue on these units. If you're handy, you can make the repair. The DW will need to be removed from under the counter to make this repair. Once out the control board is clipped into place and the wires are all plug and play type with molex type connectors on the end.
