If every button works except the start button, it means that your touch control panel has failed. To confirm just turn the dishwasher off and make sure all the lights on the control panel are off. Press the start button and see if the control panel illuminates. If not, then you definitely need a new touch control panel because the start button has failed. The control panel should turn on if any button is pressed so the fact that it's not turning on means that the button isn't working. Below is a link to the touch control panel you'd need to order and replace for your model number. CLICK HERE for control panel We are on the honor system here.
