Question about KitchenAid Dishwashers
The problem now is that the flood sensor is still wet, so it's still activating even after your 10-minute reset.
Remove the lower front panel (below the door) and wipe out under the machine with paper towels. You may have to set up a small fan to blow air under the dishwasher to dry out the area.
Once it's totally dry, THEN repeat your 10-minute-circuit-breaker-reset procedure and you should be all set.
Word of caution -- there are sharp metal parts underneath the washer. Be careful as you're drying that you don't cut your hand.

Hi, If there is not a manual switch to reset this flood switch, I would go to the circuit breaker and shut off the power to the unit for 5 minutes. Reset the breaker and see if this has solved you're problem. You can also unplug it if it is easy to get at. Please let me know if this does solve the problem. If not, we will go further into solving you're problem.
