does the timer advance the control knob? check to see that nothing is in the way of the center spray tower. does it sound like any water is spraying around inside?

You need the control panel to reset before anything else can happen. To do this TURN OFF THE PLUG SOCKET FIRST AND UNPLUG. Then you need to drain ALL the water from the machine. Turn off the water supply feed and place the wastage pipe as low to the floor as poss ( 1-2" off floor). Water will gush out so use a large shallow tray and keep emptying the tray. Tilt the dishwasher over slightly to make sure all the water is out.
This will allow the control panel to reset itself which wouldn't normally happen if the base of the dishwasher was holding even a small amount of water.
Re connect the water, plug back in , select the RESET setting on the dial and close the door and switch on.
Leave for about 20 seconds and then turn off.
Rotate the selector switch to "A" Intensive wash and switch
I found this on another site and it really did work for me

I was so impressed with the advice on this website, I thought I would take a stab at this. The difference is, I will include all the steps, so if I go into a little too much detail for you, I'm sorry, but I felt a few things got left out that needed to be said.
Tools Needed: screwdriver with t-15, and t-20 torx bits (available at any hardware store), and a pair of pliers. Also I used a headlamp so I did'nt have to hold a flashlight with my teeth.
step#1- Clear a spot on your counter or kitchen table and remove both the lower and upper racks from your dishwasher. The lower rack just lifts out, the upper you will find two light blue plastic caps that once removed will allow you to slide the rack off of the metal slides. Next, the long L shaped spray bar that goes up the back and across the top needs to be un-clipped and removed, 2 clips at top and 2 clips at the back. It might take a little wiggling but that spray bar slides into the top cover, once unclipped push back at the bottom and tilt the upper part toward you, it should come out fairly easily and give you wide open access to the cover. Next you want to remove the plastic nut that holds the spinner in place, using your pliers turn it counter clockwise, it should loosen fairly easily, and remove nut and spinner. Next with either a T-20 or T-25 torx bit, remove the 3 screws that hold the outer cover in place, notice the direction of the tube that plugs into the spray bar, make sure it goes back in the same way. Now remove the T-15 screw that holds the black grinder cover in place and remove screw and cover. Now remove the 6 screws that hold the inner cover in place and remove the cover. You can now see what all the fuss was about, mine included a piece of pistachio shell, a bay leaf, and a cherry pit. Once it's all cleaned out, just reverse these steps and be ready! You have just earned your place as your homes resident handyman or woman!
