Sounds like all the power surges you were having may have damaged the main board on the unit, try killing power to the dishwasher at the breaker for 10 minutes then restore power and see if it will reset. If you still have the same issue after that then the main board will need to be replaced on the dishwasher. I have listed the replacement part below in case you need it.
