These dishwashers normally have a "Control Lock" mode. It's in the manual. It is provided for child safety. It's often controlled by holding the "No Heat Dry" button for 4 seconds or more -- same procedure turns it on or off.

SOURCE: dishwasher not running
is the Start/Resume indicator flashing?
Opening the door or interrupting the power stopped the cycle. Close the door and press START/RESUME.
Does the Start/Resume indicator flash 3 times when you
press START/RESUME? The dishwasher is waiting for you to
open the door after the last cycle. Open and close the door,
then press START/RESUME.
may be the motor has stopped due to an overload....as you have mentioned...many of the buttons were pressed...
The motor automatically resets itself within a few minutes. If it does not restart, call for service.

I had the same problem... the lock on light was blinking continuously. The solution required disassembling the door to get to the control panel electronic board. You'll notice a flat transparent cable coming out of one end, twisting under the board and going into the door panel. In the middle of the door, there's a number of wires taped together that curled over the flat cable. Look for any black tape residue on the flat cable, which seemed to be causing a short circuit and confusing the electronics. After carefully removing the tape residue from the flat cable, the problem went away.
Hope this helps :)

Hold down the "HEATED DRY" button for 4 seconds to unlock.
Try to press these botton in sequence,Heated Wash, Heated Dry, Heated Wash, Heated Dry.release your hand, the unit will go into diagnostic mode. that is all leds will ON for a few seconds,and start normal operations.
If that does not work, you might need to check the electronic control board if the ribbon is seated properly.
Finally solution, is to change the electronic control board.

Remove power and keep aside for few hours, Allow the internal voltages to discharge and thus reset if there was an error on the processor.
Before the power is plugged check the door safety switch and also connections to the controller unit. check the inlet vavle and drain pump, if short is suspected remove and check.
If the fault returns then we need to suspect the processor controller board.
