Hello. My name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you with your appliance question today. Please wait a few moments while I review your question.

You can try to unplug the dishwasher or flip the breaker off for 5 minutes to see if the electronics will reset to start. If that doesn't work, then you're going to want to call warranty because the part you need is the touch control panel which is about $170 I'm sorry to say. These have been failing fairly commonly for Whirlpool so they have re-designed the part and the new one shouldn't fail again hopefully.
