Re: kenmore elite, no power, tried circuit box
The unit is hard wired (no plug). with the kick plate removed, you will see a wiring box. With the power off, open the wiring box and disconnect the supply wiring then disconnect the incoming wire from the unit. turn off the water and disconnect the water line under the unit. disconnect the drain line under the sink and pass the slack through behind the dishwasher. Open the door and remove the mounting screws holding the unit in place. slide the unit out.

Several things to try if you are mechanically minded. First I would pull the panel and see if you have current by testing the wires up with a meter. If you have power, at any point, look for a fuse or relay and test them. If none found, and no current found,pull the dishwasher out. Hopefully you have a 60" water line and enough drain hose that you don't have to disconnect them under the sink. Find the power line and check for voltage and the connections at the wall. I've seen bad connections a lot of times. If you do have power and good connections.let us know
These dishwashers are known to accumulate moisture in the keypad and then short. The solution that I have seen is to replace the keypad...It is possible that all of your issues with this dishwasher could point back to the keypad. After spending $$$ on the circuit boards, do you want to throw and additional $135 for a keypad? or replace the whole unit? Food for thought. Here is a link for you:
If you had a fault in your neutral wire the voltage may have raised to near 220 volts and fried the circuitboard. Replave the circuitboard or replace the thermistor on it. Double check the voltage and the connections where it is wired under the dishwasher.
I can't say for sure but it sounds like you lost house power to dishwasher. Being that the breaker is OK remove the dishwasher from cabinet and check power at the dishwasher. Its quite possible that mice may have ate through the wiring ether in the wall or at the washer.
Check the wall socket for
power. Sometimes the power cord disconnects at the dishwasher
(inside the junction box, behind the bottom kick panel), if this is
the case, the wiring must be repaired or replaced.
yes, it sounds like a fuse, or a circuit breaker tripped, or, if it is a plug-in connection, it may have come unplugged(outlet usually under sink. Might also have a loose connection in dishwasher connection box ..CAREFUL HERE;VOLTAGE MAY BE PRESENT!!! ...IT MAYBE THE DOOR IS NOT FULLY PUSHED IN TO ENGAGE SAFETY SWITCH
I had the same problem when I bought it and it just happened again; the problem is solved by ressting the control panel: Hi Temp ---> Heated Dry two or three times. It kind of goes into a testing cycle and the clean blinking light goes off.
