Hi, my dishwasher will not start and I cannot select any of the options....the auto functions is lite

Contractor's Assistant: Just to clarify, what's the make and model of your dishwasher? And have you run a diagnostic test cycle?

I have not run a cycle ...tried the 3 second reset but the dishwasher was unresponsive. It is a Bosch Silence 49 dba

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

I can turn the machine off, so the on off is working. Also, the middle time is blinking in case that means anything. I have cleaned the filter and there is no standing water

Appliance Technician: Tyler Z., Appliance Doc replied 7 months ago

Try to unplug the dishwasher or flip the breaker off to the dishwasher for 5 minutes to see if the electronics will reset. If not, then the main control board under your dishwasher tub along the right side has failed and would need to be replaced. You'll need to pull the dishwasher out to access the control board on the right side. The board is all plug and play and typically costs about $100-130 depending on the exact model number located on a sticker on the right side of the door.
