Hello, and thank you for using this service. I'll be helping you with your problem today.

Let's try to see what error you're getting. Turn the dishwasher off. Choose any 3 buttons on the control panel. Press them in the following sequence, 1-2-3-1-2-3-1-2-3 with no more than 1 second between each button push.

Watch the clean light. It will flash "X" amount of times, then pause 2 seconds, and flash "Y" amount of times, then pause 5 seconds and start over again.

Can you tell me how many times X and Y are please?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
All the lights came on and stayed on.

OK no lights started flashing after 10 seconds? The wash or clean?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
No they are all still on and none are flasjing.

OK then you are not getting an error code which means the only possibility is a bad control board. Try to flip the circuit breaker off to the dishwasher for 5 minutes to see if the electronics will reset. If not then you need to order and replace the control board inside the door. Below is a link to the part.
