The first thing you want to do is make sure the dishwasher is getting power first. If so, remove the kick panel below the door and look for the 3" x 3" sheet metal box. Remove the cover and you can see the junction box wire connections to the dishwasher. These wires will often short out, melt, or get loose. Check all the connections and if they are faulty or burnt, cut the wires back and re-wire the junction box (with the power disconnected to the dishwasher of course). If everything checks good there are no fuses on this dishwasher--you'll need to order and replace the control panel at the top of the door. Below is a link to the control panel you'll need to order. It's about $95.

Is there a thermal fuse in this model?
Appliance Technician: Tyler Z., Appliance Doc replied 4 months ago

There is not. Not on this model. A few years ago Kitchen Aid stopped using them.

Wiring was OK, I checked the fuses on control board, all OK. ( contrary to your statement that there are no fuses on this model, there are motor fuses - F8 and Tria fuse F9 on the control board.)
I removed the plugs on control board and function board and cleaned, reassembled and all is now working. Diagnostic cycles run, no errors.
Appliance Technician: Tyler Z., Appliance Doc replied 4 months ago

The fuses have nothing to do with your problem whatsoever. They only stop the motor, not the panel from lighting up which is what your problem is. I'm glad it's working again, something was just jumbled with the board and possible shaking it around when disassembly got it working again. Hopefully the issue doesn't come back but if it does the control panel needs to be replaced as I mentioned before.
