When I push the start button on my dishwasher, the "hold 3 sec" light blinks but nothing happens and no other buttons work.

It sounds like the control panel is locked. See if one of the buttons says lock and hold it down for at lest 3 seconds. If the control is locked, that should unlock it. Its a child safety feature.

Is there a reset button on the dishwasher? if so, where?

Not sure what type of reset you are after. Is the dishwasher not responding to any panel switches.

Is the keypad locked, i.e., is the control lock light on? Then press Energy Saver Dry button for 4-5 secs.

Are some lights flashing and dishwasher will not start? Have you tried to turn mains power off and back on?

If you think the controller needs a reset, you could try this sequence of keys within 7-8 secs.
hi temp scrub/ energy saver dry/hi tempscrub/ energy saver dry/ hi temp scrub/ energy saver dry.

If the reset sequence has worked correctly, then all lights should light up. Press Cancel to exit from reset mode. I am assuming you have a users manual. If not then download from here.
