Hello, I'm Joel and will be glad to help you today.

Sorry to hear you are having problems with your dishwasher. First thing you can try if you have not done so yet is kill power to the unit at the breaker for 10 minutes restore power and see if the board resets, however if it does not and still does the same then the power surge shorted the main board it will have to be replaced. Let me know if you need the replacement board number, if so I will be glad to get you that information.

I kindly ask at this time that you go ahead and click on the 5th star of the star rating system at the top right of your page. Afterwards If you have any follow up questions they will be free and I will continue to help until you are completely satisfied. It's very much appreciated, Thank You!
