Thought it would be smooth sailing after resolving leak issues but now it won't start. All lights work on console, "Cancel" starts drain mode, but other than that, "Start" does nothing. For the past few weeks you had to push the Start several times for it to begin the cycle.
Removed and replaced the fuse according to instructions, but no go. I did notice some of the "burn" on wires as some have mentioned but none look like they're burnt through. Tester shows full power to new fuse. Appreciate any help.

Hi,

It sounds like your touchpad has a short in it, or the ribbon cable on it is corroded.

You might want to try this first: Unplug or turn the breaker OFF to your dishwasher, then Unplug the ribbon cable that attaches to the control display board, Then use a pencil eraser and only rubbing in the direction of the traces, use the eraser as you would erase, to clean the traces.

If after doing that it still does not work, then the control panel touchpad assembly is the culprit, and Its No Longer Available.
