Your question is: Will not start, seems to have no power at all. You checked the breaker and it's fine. Is there a reset button somewhere on this dishwasher ?
Whirlpool Dishwasher model gu980scgq3
No reset, if breaker is good then check the connection at the d/w. It's under the d/w behind the kick plate on right or center under a cover box. 9 times out of 10 you'll find a loose, broken or burnt connection there. That done, it's time to call in warranty repair. If beyond warranty you might consider utilizing the Repair Directory to find a repairman. If the d/w has a few years on it perhaps it is time to compare the cost of repair verses replacement.

SOURCE: whirlpool dishwasher reset code
Yup, found it on another site..I had the same issue today.
Reset code: Push 1. Heat Dry 2. Normal 3. Heat Dry 4. Normal
wait about 2 minutes as the controller resets itself. You should see all the leds flash on and then wash and rinse leds stay on for about 30 seconds. A minute or so later ..presto, my machine worked again.
My machine is not the GU3200XTP, but in the same Whirlpool tall tub series (same manual) so leds may not have the same name.

whirlpool dishwasher problem adp 4501 - I had a problem with this machine not starting properly, hunting, with the start light flashing apparently continuously the pump also going on and off in time with the flashing.
After looking around a number of forums I cleaned out the sump gently with a sponge which did not help, then followed this up by pouring a kettle of boiling water into it. This had no immediate effect, but after a few hours the machine started and ran properly again.
Cost no money and saved me the hassle of taking it out and stripping it down - well worth a try.

Unplug it, move timer to start and plug back in. If it still seems stuck at the end it is almost certainly the timer. If it starts as normal, suspect the drain pump or pressure switch

Turn off the dishwasher and unplug it from the power supply. Wait 10 minutes and restore power.
Select a "Hi Temp" wash cycle, followed by a heated dry setting on the dishwasher.
Repeat step 3. This will reset the dishwasher.
