This answer was rated:

Have a kitchenaid dishwasher kudd230b0. Opened the door in the middle of the cycle to put another dish in, now it will not restart. Checked the breaker and the outer door interlock switch(it has continuity). What could be the problem?

could be, when you restart the dishwasher...nothing happens. I am not sure how to test the control panel for power.

so none of the lights will come on when you press the buttons, no lights are blinking?

there are no lights on the front of this dishwasher

Let me look up the model number Chaly, Can you give me a minute?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

no problem

Ok Charly, you have a older model with the timer, The problem is either going to be a voltage issue or the timer has a bad contact on it, verify you have voltage to the door interlock, if you see 120v to the interlock then you have a bad timer, if you don't see voltage then you have a wiring issue maybe a broken or damaged wire at the base of the door where the wire bundle enters the door.
