Ok great..If you are trying to reset the computer ..Go to the homes fuse panel..Trip the breaker for the dishwasher off then back on..When you start or try to start a wash can you hear the drain pump run..?

OK, same result after circuit breaking - green lights then goes to red light (cancel drain). Not on long enuf to hear drain pump run. Control panel bad? Better to replace dishwasher?

Ok great..Once you begin the cycle..The unit should drain any water left in bottom of dishwasher...Could be a faulty drain pump motor..Or a faulty computer..On this unit it would be wise to replace the complete dishwasher unfortunately..Thanks Bob
