If it won't reset, try to flip the circuit breaker of to the dishwasher for 5 minutes to see if the electronics will reset. If the electronics will not reset then try to start a cycle and just wait out the delay timer. If you start a cycle it should start running and reset the delay after it has run so if after 24 hours the dishwasher hasn't run and reset, then the control board is just bad and would need to be replaced. The part number for the control board is WD21X21916 and it's about $70. We are on the honor system here.
