Maytag D/W #MDBH945HWQ - wont turn on. no panel lights work

Resolved Question:

Maytag D/W #MDBH945HWQ - won't turn on. no panel lights work except 'cycle select' which turns on and off the 'heavy' light' (the light will not cycle between 'normal' and 'light' - ONLY the 'heavy' light goes on and off.) Everything else is dead. Field srvice test doesn't work at all.
I checked the 2 door handle switches - even bypassed them - with no luck. Voltages appear at the motherboard as expected when I follow the schematic. the 'load readings' (ohms) read normal.
we had trouble with the dishwasher not completeing the whole cycle just before it went dead. I'm suspect either the motherboard or light panel (can one buy this?) went out but
I would like to hear from an Maytag-experienced technician before I try a new motherboard.
Is this the most likely suspect considering the info I just gave you?
