Question about Frigidaire FPHD2491KF Dishwasher
The dishwasher has no lights on the panel when the dishwasher is running. When the door is opened, they all function correctly. I can start and cancel when the door is open, but none of the buttons do anything when the door is closed. I am unsure if this is expected operation or if it is malfunctioning.
The buttons and the display panel are not lit when the machine is running. This is to save energy according to frigidaire. I wish I had know this before purchasing it about a year and a half ago. The cycle count down timer was a big reason I purchased this one, but what good is it if it only works when the door is open?

This is very likely due to a bad main electronic control board but the only way to know for sure is to do some electrical testing with a volt/ohm meter and the wiring diagram located within the appliance. If possible use the meter and the wiring diagram to check input/output voltages looking for discrepancies between the diagram and the actual meter readings.

You may have already, but try opening and closing the door and restarting the machine again. If the door switch is loose, you may be able to get it to make the connection and run. If it just palain won't work that way for you, you'll have to try to tighten up the connections on the switch, or replace it.
