Question about Dishwashers
If there is no water in the dishwasher - i.e. it had finished a cycle, but now it is just the indicator lights that are on, then the chances are some water has got into the control system. It will probably dry out, given time. (maybe a number of days.)
If there is water in the dishwasher -i.e. it was part way through the cycle and stopped, it maybe that the outlet hose/pipe has got blocked - possibly by your plumber's efforts. Generally speaking, the fats are rinsed off by the hot water, but go solid further along the pipes, as it cools. It could be he has unblocked the sink drain side of things, but not the dishwasher drain pipe. Risking more water on the floor, if your flexible waste hose can be removed, pour some water down the waste pipe, see if it goes away fast enough.
One thing worth trying, if not done so, is to unplug it from the supply, and leave unplugged for 20 minutes or so. Then plug it in and see if it operates OK then. Maybe try that first.
