Question about Dishwashers
Reset breaker, cancelled wash and tried starting it again, but i still get the same thing
Your sump may be clogged. At the bottom of the dishwasher is some sort of screen which may be held in place with screws. Turn off the breaker to the dishwasher, remove the screws, then the screen, then reach in and remove whatever is blocking the pump and keeping it from turning. Replace the screen, turn the breaker back on, and all should be well.

I just read this for the same problem: push sanitize, then heat and dry, sanitize, heat and dry, sanitize, heat and dry, cancel, then open and close the door. It worked. The dishwasher is running correctly even as I type this.

youll need to enter a diagnistic mode, press in this order, hi-temp(sani-rinse)----heated dry--hitemp---heated dry... all lights should light, close door and let cycle for about a min, htne press the cancelbutton, you should be good to go, the buttons on your model may read slighty different names, if this "toggle of buttons" does not work, you can remove thelower access panel and htere willl be a tech sheet/trouble shoooter behind the panel, in there it will explain how to enter diag/test mode

If the clean light flashes 7 times, pauses, then repeats...
When the dishwasher doesn't sense a water temperature increase, it stops working and locks the functions (clean light flashes 7 times, all buttons are non responsive). It does this as a safety in case the element is broken and feeding electrical current into the water.
To resolve this you will have to reset the console. Do this by closing the door and press these buttons in sequence...
-high temp wash
-high temp wash
...all the lights will turn on briefly and the machine will start a diagnostic cycle. You can press cancel or let the diagnostic cyle finish (1-2 minutes).
You should now be able to run the dishwasher as normal.
If the issue returns, you could have a problem with the heating circuit (ie. element, thermostat or wiring).
It rarely happens but it could also be the door switch not engaging properly when the door is closed (slightly bend the door latch down making sure it doesn't hit the door when you close it).

We had the same issue with ours...tried turning off at the breaker, still didn't reset. Contacted appliance repair who came in and unplugged it from underneath the sink, waited a few seconds and plugged it back...dishwasher reset and repairman charged trip charge and labor $65 BUT problem is resolved and we now know what to do in the future.
