Hello, I'm Joel and will be glad to help you today.

Since we know the pump works properly because you can start it manually and it runs then the control board is bad and needs to be replaced as its not sending power to the pump. If you give me the full model number of the unit I will give you the replacement part number for the board. Open the dishwasher door and and look around on the door frame or top inner wall and you will see a tag that has the serial number and model number listed, I will need the full model number on that tag, thanks. In the meantime please read below:
