Question about Dishwashers
Has power, certain lights come on but nothing happens. The time remaining display does not show numbers, just a slash. The cancel/drain will run for a short period, but does nothing. The pots/pans option will make a noise for a very short period, but nothing happens. It is the only option that does anything and there are no lights. All lights on the cycles light up except soak/scrub. No water enters tub. Suggestion?

Try this solution first
Push the Hi-temp and then push the Sani-rinse. Go back and forth multiple times on these two buttons. I found that after a handfull of pushes that a "1" came up on the display. I continued to keep rotating the two buttons and then a "2" came up on the display and the dishwater started it's "drain" phase. I then hit cancel to clear and then I selected the cycle I wanted. The washer started up just as normal at this point.

There is a small replacable part on the control panel circuit board which is like a fuse. It actually is a temperature fuse and it blows when the environment gets too hot for the circuit board. Unplug the dishwasher and take the door apart so you can see the circuit board. If you trace the power wires one of them leads to a little white module with 2 electrical tabs. Unplug the 2 wires and unsnap the module. You can check it with an ohm meter. IF its good the meter will register almost a short. f it's bad it will be open. The parts place I went to didn't even need a model number and he says he goes through a lot of them.

As you say a clogged line or valve does not make sense.
Try running it without the heated drying and see if it empties or if the cancel button will work then.
The dishes should air dry quickly if you empty it and open the door.
It could be a defective thermostat allowing it to get too hot during the heat cycle
