Yes, your sink drain needs cleaning -- it's clogged. Pour some bleach into the sink drains and let it sit for a couple of hours. Flush out with boiling hot water.
If this improves the situation but not completely solving the drain problem, try it again.
If that doesn't solve the problem, remove the P-traps on the sink drains under the sink and clean them out.
If that doesn't work, let me know -- we'll try something else.

Your dishwasher is siphoning the water out. The drain hose should turn upward, nearly to the bottom side of the counter top, before it attaches to the drain or disposal. If it has an independant drain it still needs the rise and also needs an air break to stop the siphoning.

Welcome to FixYa.
Based on your brief description, I'd suggest you likely have a faulty thermal fuse in the control board as you alluded to, but it is not resettable unfortunately.
It's pretty easy to replace or to check, I've attached a link below to change the fuse, but you can also use the link to access the thermal fuse to check it.
With the aid of an ohm meter, remove one wire and measure across the two contacts and it should show continuity, otherwise it's open and therefore no good.
The part is available at most brick & mortar part places or on-line at vendors such as "repairclinic.com" or searspartsdirect.com" to name a couple. Part number 8193762...looks like this image and retails for about $15-$20USD based on the model you provided.
This is the youtube link to help with the repair "how to".
Let me know how you make out or if you require any further assistance and I'll try to help in any manner I can. Good luck.
Thank you for choosing FixYa.
