My kud101flss2 will not start

Good morning, today i wanted to run my dishwasher it is a kitchenaid KUD101FLSS2 built in and it had a small amount of water that did not drain from the previous wash and none of the button lights will go on, i thought it might be locked but its not. Three nights ago no water would spray so I read in this website that I should try moving the part that looks like a mushroom up and down and It worked it ran perfectly, but now this.

    I'm having a similar problem with my KitchenAid KUDR01TJBT0. I do not know if it said clean or not when my daughter last emptied it but now the panel will not function and there is water in the bottom. I seem to have had this problem before and think they replaced the motor, but my wife was at home not me so I don't know for sure.

First be careful about electrocution-did one of the wires come loose underneath-but don't touch anything. Check to see that it is plugged in and also that the fuse is not blown or breaker tripped. If this does not resolve the issue, if not hardwired, check for a tripped outlet and try another electrical item in the outlet to be sure that power is going to the outlet. Another posibility is that for some reason the door is not locking and allowing the knob/dial to engage. Open your dishwasher and look at the top of the door-does the bar come across when you lock it? Keep it open and turn the knob all the way around to the end of cycle position. Close and lock the door and try again.

Cycle runs but dishes are still dirty. No water.

Sounds like an inlet valve. If there is no water in the pump when it runs you can burn up the rubber seals. After fixing the fill problem you should check underneath for any leaks.

Dishwasher not draining completely-suds left

Dishwashers shouldn't have suds so somehow dishwasher liquid was introduced to the dishwasher. Vinegar, alcohol, or a small amount of cooking oil might help eliminate the sudsing.

Check the water inlet flow. Clean the strainer attached to the machine end of inlet hose.
Add water from the front to the wash chamber 10 liters and run the m/c. It should become alright if any air lock inside water pump.
