So there are no fuses or cut outs on this dishwasher that can stop it from at least illuminating and turning on. You'll need to make sure you have 110 volts going to the dishwasher from your house if you have a multimeter. Make sure the connections at the junction block where the power cord connects to the dishwasher is secure and you have 110 volts getting to the dishwasher. If that all checks good, your control board has failed and needs to be replaced. Below is a link to the part if you needed to order it.

Wow, what repair advice! R there no restart codes on this model
Expert:  Tyler Z. replied 8 months ago.

There are no restarts, resets, or refuses I'm sorry to say. I know you were hoping for something simpler but there just isn't anything outside of what I have already said if the control panel won't even light up.
