Good morning. My name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you with your dishwasher today. This dishwasher isn't just stuck in delay or else it would come on after 4 hours which you say it's not. That means there is a problem with your control panel itself. You've tried resetting the circuit breaker and that didn't reset the electronics so the only thing you can do at this point is replace the entire control panel. Below is a link to the part you'd need to order and replace for your model and it's about $130. It is a new part number and that's because it's been re-designed due to moisture from the steam created during the wash cycle causing the control panel to fail early. Of course they didn't recall this issue...

WRONG WRONG WRONG... Your advice was all wrong... The dishwasher is working again and I did not replace the control panel. I should not be charged the $28 since your advice was wrong. Please advise.
