SOURCE: Dishwasher won't start
If the unit won't start, but "hums", then the motor itself may need replacing (you need to check for 120V at the motor harness). If the control itself is bad, then you would have to replace the control. You mentioned that the door didn't work right - if that is the case, the door switches may not be making contact properly, thus preventing the motor from starting (the door has to be closed properly for it to start).
If you have any other problems please ask me.

You need to reset the computer on the bottom. Had the same problem with mine. The Blinking led means the heating element is bad and will not operate.

If you have a disposal make sure it is clear. You can put some icecubes in it to clean the blades and run some water through to make sure the drain is clear. If the dishwasher will still not pump out all the water check the drain line from the dishwasher to the sink drain for obstructions. If the drain is you will have to check the pump for obstructions. Sometimes glass, popcorn, toothpicks etc.... can get in the pump and prevent it from pumping out. If the pump is clear, then you will need a new pump. Good luck to you.

The control panel has bee locked. Press and hold the heated dry button for 3 seconds until the light next to the lock "3" button goes off. This feature is to prevent small children from starting it. Locking the controls works the same way, hold the heated dry button for 3 seconds will turn it back on.
