You may have a bad control here which may be caused by a bug infestation as this is an odd issue. Take the console off and see if there is any evidence of bug activity in there. Post back with your findings. Bugs love these as the control board stays warm.

no bugs on front control panel - dusconnected and researed all connectors. normal wash and heated dry indicators both lit(green) but start button will not start wash cycle drain pump works with pressing cancel button

reseated not researed - have dishwasher on floor - if wash pump windings are open or bad cap would this make control panel not advance to next cycle? or would i get a fault inicator (sequence of flashes)?

The touchpad would be bad if the unit will not start a cycle. The wash pump condition has no effect on the control. The touchpad is incorporated in the console, so that is what you would buy. Touchpads fail on these way more often than the boards do.

pressing normal wash and heated dry cycled three times doesnt light all leds above each touch pad switch when going through reset mode;

The touchpad is bad. Replace it. Buy it from a place that allows returns to be on the safe side. is one such vendor.
