If all the other buttons still respond but the start button won't give you any indication you press it---your start button on the touchpad ribbon cable has failed and will need to be replaced. This is the most common button to fail because is the most commonly pressed button. The touchpad is just an electronic sticker that sticks onto the control panel and plugs into the control board inside the door. You'll need to flip the circuit breaker off to the dishwasher or unplug it and then peel the touchpad off with a knife and replace it. Below is a link to the part you'll need order for your model.
