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

This is a really common failure for this model dishwasher. Try to turn the circuit breaker off for 60 seconds to see if the electronics will reset. If not,t hen you need to order and replace the touch control panel. To replace this part, open the door and remove all the screws around the border of the inner door liner. The door will split apart and with the power disconnected to the dishwasher, you can replace the touchpad. Below is a link to the part you'd need to order for this model.
