Constant Beeping - No Control Panel Lights

GE PDW9280J100SS Dishwasher, approx. 6 years old. We had a power failure for 12 hours and when power was restored the DW emits a constant beeping tone with no LED's on the control panel. Being an electrical engineer myself, I figured the control board had taken a power surge so I ordered a new one. While waiting on the board, I checked all other components and could find nothing wrong. Installed new board and have the same problem as before. Continuous tone with no control panel LED's. Voltage is good and this tone is emitted even with nothing but power plugged into the control board.

Any help before I buy another dishwasher?

    I gave the same issue with a GE profile PDW9200J00BB about 5 to 6 years old. The power to the outlet it is plugged into was cut for 4-6 hours and when we turned it back on it emits a continuous beep noise and has no lights on the control panel

It is possible that since the neutral was bad it could have made a surge on the power and caused the processor controller to fail. It is also important that this must be confirmed to be corrected by checking with a larger load like a heater being switched on and not causing any voltage drop. If so the line is clear. Also make sure that the ground - Earth- is also intact.
The program has reset because of an error and it must be confirmed to be within or outside the washer. So remove plug and test this terminal with a large load test to confirm that the outlet is OK.
If so check the panel connections or is best to refer back to the dealer as the replaced panel will have a warranty.
Please take second opinion before the board is removed.

Pdw 9800 jooww When power came on after outage, touch panel doesn't work and there is a constant beeping noise.

Try pressing two control buttons side by side in the center of the panel. The result will light all the buttons on the panel. A test mode will follow before it resets itself.

Why is it dead?

Check power at the source; there could be a tripped breaker. If power is getting to your dishwasher, there may have been sudden failure of a part, such as the heater.

If there are no lights on the control panel then initially check if connections to the panel are fine.If they look fine then you definitely need a new control panel. No need for a new touch panel.Its always that the control panel goes faulty,not the touch panel.

the temperature control is bad. when you push the fast freeze it bypasses the thermostat for 12-24 hours depending on which model you have. I am not able to find any parts information with the model number provided but you should be able to find a temperature control at any local appliance parts house or online thru any reputable supplier.

This is an unusual failure. The humming could be a motor (or valve) that has power but isn't moving. But that doesn't explain the (absence of) lights on the control panel. I suggest you call a professional.
