Depends on what he is required to do to gain access to the control panel. if you are handy with tools and are comfortable doing the repair... buy the part and replace it yourself.

I have just reeived a Kelvinator dishwasher KD12WW. I have only a cold water outlet can I still wash with it

I found a site that is important for you to down load the site is
It is a pdf version of the instruction manual for the dishwasher
I notice that one of the instructions is quote" when using your dishwasher , you should prevent plastic items from contacting the heating element" un quote
most all dishwashers heat their own water above what human hands can stand so from that statement you can use cold water inlet only and the machine will heat it to operating temperature
I got that site by going google and typing in --kelvinator kd12ww dishwasher
then I selected site manual-kelvinator kd12ww dishwasher clicked on that and that address came up with the pdf manual
there are other sites that have parts manuals and heaps of other information
call your local kelvinator service agent and ask them about a heating element

Need model number and price for a replacement motherboard

To repair a sharp aquos a few years ago the bill was to be £1200 for the screen and a board plus time for a £700 TV that was 5 years old bit high
so depending on the board that is the problem for you that may not be to bad a price if they are charging £100 for an inspection and repair quote
get another quote from somewhere else and ask the charge up front for the inspection quote

Frigidaire dishwasher stuck on wash cycle, doesn't complete - model # FDB1050reb0

This model doesn't use a timer like older types, The element is turned on and off by the electronics and a failed board can cause the symptoms mentioned, thee is no real way to test the board as the integrated electronics are quite complicated. The board is easy to replace, if you can use basic tools you would be able to manage it.
The dishwasher is cold fills so heats it's own water so the hot water temperature in the house has no impact on the dishwasher.

No water is coming into the dishwasher

This is usually one of a few things, First, is there water to begin with? Second, the solenoid has stuck shut. Third, The electronic controller has failed, or there is no electricity to the machine.
What you should do, is Google for a service and repair manual, use your exact make and model and the words service manual, and locate and download, if you wish to DIY.
Otherwise you need to call your local appliance service center, and ask for a "Quote" for the repair.

Hotpoint Dishwasher Problem

Certainly sounds like the motor is seized. If it is quite old it may not be worth fixing, you should call your local appliance parts dealer with the dishwasher model and serial number and get a quote for a new motor.
