SOURCE: Dishwasher won't start
Kaclf, If you have no lights at all, dishwasher unresponsive, it's probably one of two things. First check the junction box where the cord hooks up to the dishwasher. Sometimes I find a bad connection in the wire-nut. Second, there is a thermal fuse that sits on the control board. You will have to remove the inside panel. You want to see if it's blown. It will be sitting on the top side of the board, two wires going to it. Catriver

I had a similar issue with my MDB5130AWW. The Wash was interupted and wouldn't come back on. Not knowing where to start I read some other solutions on this site and started by opening the bottom cover. Thats where I found a 4 page diagnostic / Electrical Schematic. Start with the Sales Demo mode of pressing the Rinse button 5 times within 5 seconds. I had to do it twice before the washer came "alive". I was estatic after reading about the $100 mainboard cost and maybe more for other parts. The document has other test and what different keypads mean when flashing. Thankfully I didn't have to go that far.

Sounds like you have a bad Control Board
But with the price it cost, you might be better off buying a new dishwasher, preferably a different brand, cause that washer has some bad reviews

You can try reseting the machine buy holging down outside two cycle buttons for 3 seconds, then release. After a minute the end light should come on. Then use as normal. If this fails pull the unit out, then take of the side panels (screws to the front in the seal) & check the red anti-flood float on the left side of the machine, to make sure it is not up activating the cut out switch. This may be due to the machine leaking somewhere and the float raises and activates the switch, or as in my case a build up of limscale has raised it up enough to activate it.
Hope this helps
