Be very careful, it sounds like an electrical failure, were the machine has cut out to protect you and itself. You need an expert there and quickly. Water and electric are a bad mix and more house fires are caused by washers than most other appliances.
Hello penny123 Welcome to fixya. My name is Huuum at your service.
You said, " YOU HAVE NO MANUAL AND NOT SURE WHAT THE SETTINGS ARE FOR."
I found the site where you can read or download your proper User manual for the Candy CS455M Dishwasher. Below is the site that will take you directly to the Candy online Manual search. When there, Manually start typing in the sc455 and a few model choices will pop up.Choose your cs455m and when it opens , you may print it or just read it to acquire the information you need.
Your question is: your 3-yr-old dishwasher (Whirlpool 24-inch ) stopped in mid-cycle. A small amount standing water in the bottom of the washer. None of the control panel buttons were lit up and none of them will work. NO POWER
First check all the breakers (or fuses).
Second check the electrical connections. If you're not a qualified electrician or service tech then call one. It"s under the unit behind the kickplate.

You said, The dial goes through one cycle but it stops when it gets into another
cycle and there seems to be no heat because when you stop the cycle and
open the door the plates are cold and the water has not been dried off
I believe your timer may be bad and in need of replacement.
But before you do this, you should read the report I pasted below.
Especially because this model is an inexpensive model!
Here is an interesting report I just read.
Repair or replace?
When to pull the plug on your old Appliance
It nearly always makes sense to undertake simple do-it-yourself repairs,
such as replacing a gasket on a refrigerator or a freezer.
Typically, you'll also find a troubleshooting section for more-serious problems
in the owner's manual.
Should you pay for a repair or buy a new model?
The answer depends mostly on the age of your appliance,
how much you bought it for,and the cost of the repair.
Follow these guidelines:
When a repair makes sense.
If your appliance is under warranty or less than four years old
paying for a repair makes sense.
Note that appliances under warranty might require service from a factory-authorized technician;
readers have found them on a par with independent repairers.
When a repair might be a wise choice.
If your appliance is out of warranty and is four to seven years old,
it might make sense to pay for a repair. Customers generally pay $100 to $200 for a repair.
But you might want to buy a new model even at this stage,
given that today's models are quieter and have added features.
Higher energy efficiency is another plus: Energy Star-qualified models made after April 28, 2008,
are 43 percent more efficient than conventional models built before 2001 and 56 percent
more efficient than those built before 1993.
When it pays to replace.
The repair costs more than half the price of a comparable new appliance.
Data also shows that it doesn't pay to fix a less-expensive applaince
six or more years old .
Thanks to better recycling programs, less than 10 percent
of a appliances you replace is likely to end up in a landfill.
Thanks for giving me the opportunity to help!

providing its not under guarantee remove mains plug and remove door skin from front of door carefully, as it has to go back on, look for any broken wires just above the door hinge, there will be about 10 or 15 wires, its possible that if you have checked what you said have checked properly that one of these wires has got hot and broken (very common fault of all dishwashers aver 3 year old)
replace wire with care etc, work safely,
