It's possible that the dishwasher is in a 9 hour delay, but I would start by flipping the circuit breaker off to the dishwasher for 5 minutes to see if the electronics will reset. If that doesn't work, then try to press the delay button several times to get it back to 0 hours. If it still won't respond, the touch control panel would need to be replaced and unfortunately for the bisque color which your model indicates you have, they don't make that color anymore, just black and white.

I hope I have earned a 5 star rating. We are on the honor system here. Please remember to rate my service by selecting a star at the top or bottom of the screen before you leave today and reply back here letting me know with a rating of 1-5 stars (5 being the best). If you need anything else, just let me know. You can continue asking follow-up questions at no additional charge after rating my service if you still need assistance.
