I have a KitchenAid Dishwasher, model KUDSO1FLSS6, that stopped working. I did the whole reset with the power & there is power going through. I took off the cover, power is going through the wires, the unit will not come on. Pushed all the buttons, nothing. You had mentioned something about a fuse, and you would walk through switching it if I replied. Thank you, You can e-mail me at IBillyC@yahoo.com

Re: Dishwasher stopped working!!
On your unit there is a thermal fuse that disrupts power due to a power spike, over amping heater or just age, the thermal fuse is located in the consoleclipped to the top of the control board, it's light in color and has 2 black wires going to it. the replacement part number is 8193762 the part runs about $20 or so in cost. good luck hope this helps

I ran into this same problem. Cutting the power didnt reset it.
After power reset, mine had the normal led blinking. If I pressed cancel, then the cancel and china button leds would start blinking too.
I pulled out the trouble shooting guide (from behind the baseboard kick panel under the dishwasher door). It that if the dishwasher wont run and button LEDs are blinking there is a short circuit in the keypad. It gave a keypad diagnostic sequence which I followed. (disconnect keypad and try to initiate the diagnostic cycle without the keypad by disconecting the yellow leads to OWI sensor twice in less than 6 seconds.
I could hear the diagnostic cycle start, so the problem is a bad keypad. Will order a new one tomorrow and let you know if it works.
chris72 had the solution to my Whirlpool DU1055XTPQ3 not turning on. Per Chris's suggestion, I pressed back and forth between sani rinse and heated dry. All the lights came on as it reset and it was good to go. The dishwasher started up immediately. Saved me a service call, THANK YOU Chris!!
the first thing to check is power. check your breakers to see if any are tripped. if so turn it off than on some breakers do not reset if you just switch them to the on position. also check if it has a plug or shut off switch in a cabinet nearby .
I found this post elsewhere. It seems to have worked for me:
Our KitchenAid KUDP series dishwasher went into a mode where it would not start and would only respond to the cancel/drain button. The clean light would flash 7 times in a row, stop, and then repeat. I read that the 7 flashes indicates an error code and that the dishwasher has detected a problem in the heater element circuit. I tried to reset the error mode by turning off power for 15 minutes, however, that did not work. We called for a repair. The service person found that the dishwasher was completely fine except that it had gone into an error mode. The technician reset the error mode and charge us $115.00.
The reset sequence used was reported to be the following: 1) Crack the door open. 2) Within 3 seconds press the following sequence - Hi Temp Scrub, Energy Saver Dry, Hi Temp Scrub, Energy Saver Dry 3) Close and latch the door 4) Press the cancel button (the circle with the triangle in it)
We were told the dishwasher expects to see the dish water temperature rise in a certain way. If the water does not heat in this way, the dishwasher becomes confused and thinks the heater element has failed. In deed, this happened just following and extended power failure and our hot water tank was cool. I am curious if this code will work for anybody else with the same problem and save a service call and 115 bucks. Overall, this seems to be a serious logic flaw in the design.
