Re: power to dishwasher
Their is either a Short or an Electricial grounding taking place during the wash cycle. Don't take a chance on buring out your circuit breaker in the house panel box . Quit using it until the electricial problem is found.

1. No power to the dishwasher
Make sure there's power getting to the dishwasher. Check for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Check the wall socket for power. Sometimes the power cord disconnects at the dishwasher (inside the junction box, behind the bottom kick panel), if this is the case, the wiring must be repaired or replaced.
2. Door switch
Replace if defective.
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).

Sounds like the control is bad. Turn off the power, remove the two screws at the bottom that secure the kick panel. Remove the kick panel and look under the machine for a folder up tech sheet.

Did he overfill the soap dispenser with extra automatic dishwasher soap or with something else? If it is just automatic dishwashing soap then maybe run the cycle with no dishes in it on heavy wash. Now if he filled it with regular dishwashing soap clean out as much of it as you can then run the washer without dishes. If you leave regular soap in there your kitchen will be filled with bubbles.
Home depot sells the faucet adaptor you need. It is called "Long Dishwasher Aerator" and states 55/64 " - 27 thread. The number on the top left which I suppose is the part number is 36094B. It also has a yellow stick with "2A" on it, which should help find it quickly. It is located in the section where they have all the kitchen faucet aerators etc. Found it easily. Cost was $3.77
