As long as you have power to the unit then the control board has failed, so you need to replace it. Part#00488428. It's in the console and has the display on it.

Actually, that's not what it was. I fixed the problem by pulling out the dishwasher and giggling the wires and then it came back on. It seems like there's a loose wire and I'll have an electrician come out. I'm sorry but I don't want to pay for the answer (as it turned out to be wrong), if that's okay?

That's fine, but to be perfectly fair I did say "as long as you have power to the dishwasher" so I WAS corrrect in what I said. I did not say the control was bad with no other option.

There is clearly a loose connection where that electrical connection is made to the unit based on your reply.
