It sounds like your control lock is engaged. One of your buttons is used as a control lock on your dishwasher if you press and hold it for 5 seconds. Look to see if you can determine which button you need to press and hold. If you can't tell, just push each button one at a time for 5 seconds and one of them should unlock your control panel so you can use it again. Other than that, if you can't find the button, send me the model number located on a sticker around the front frame of the tub and can be seen if you open the door. I can then look up which button you need to press and hold for your particular model number. We are on the honor system here.
