There are several issues that could cause the panel to not have power, one you need to verify voltage to the unit and make sure it is getting power and that your breaker has not failed. If the unit is getting power from the wiring from your home then you will need to check the door switch for continuity if the door switch has failed then no power will get to the board. If the door switch is good then the board will need to be replaced. You will need a ohm/voltage to meter to make these checks. The only thing you can do if you do not have a meter for testing is try killing power at the breaker for a few minutes restore power and see if the unit resets, if not you will need to either buy a meter and test the things I stated above or have some one to the trouble shooting for you. The parts you may need to replace are listed below:

Dishwasher Door Latch Assembly
