Sorry, I have several questions going. The model tag will be on the tub, behind the door on the left side.

That model has a thermal fuse that has likely opened if you have verified power to the dishwasher. The fuse is mounted on the control board and is shown as number 5 in the diagram at the link below.


The link below is to the part you will need from a highly recommended company rated A+ with the Better Business Bureau. They offer a 100% money back guarantee, EVEN ON INSTALLED ELECTRICAL PARTS, for an entire year! They are the only company to allow returns on installed parts for a refund and offer a FULL ONE YEAR WARRANTY!

Access is gained by removing the screws along the top of the inner door and the next one down on each side. The control panel will then fold down and come free, allowing access to that fuse. See the video at the link below.
