Dishwasher started but did not go into wash cycle. When it started it sounded louder than normal and did not sound like the water was filtering through and then it just quit. Now the tub is full of water and the dishwasher will not work at all. I checked the circuit breaker and that was fine but when I push any of the buttons nothing works.

They can be complicated to re-assemble. Best solution is to video the procedure (if you have a video camera) during disassembly and make notes and diagrams to orient things properly and make sure the correct screws go back where they shoud. Takes more time, but you'll be glad you did, it will save you a lot of aggrevation in the long run.
There are several moving parts: The motor, pump, valves and actuators, and the rotating sprayers. Is your door seal still okay? If it's not sealing at the top it could sound louder yet not leak water. Or the motor and/or pump shafts are wearing out and becoming noisy. Keep an eye open for leaks, as this is what will happen if the pump becomes defective.
dishwashers come with the promise of being the "quietest dishwasher in
its class," according to Frigidaire. However, a quiet dishwasher doesn't
necessarily mean that the dishwasher is silent, as some noises are
normal. It can take some troubleshooting at times to determine if a
noise coming from the dishwasher is typical or if it indicates a larger
Listen for the sound of water filling and draining throughout the washcycle. These sounds are normal and do not indicate an issue.
Pay attention to the drain
motor, which operates at the beginning of each cycle. This noise should
be fairly quiet and should not sound like a loud, grinding or banging
Note that the sound will change
when the wash cycle moves between the lower and middle spray arms. This
sound should be temporary and fairly quiet.
Look for hard items in the dishwasher
grinder or filter if a loud crunching, buzzing or grinding sound is
heard. The dishwasher can typically grind up these items within one or
two cycles, but the item may be lifted out and discarded to eliminate
Remove the bottom rack and spray
arms from the bottom of the dishwasher if there is a loud noise coming
from the dishwasher that does not resolve itself. Look inside for the
impeller, which is round and spins. Remove any debris that may be
clogging up the impeller or pump.
Try to position the machine, so that you can run the cycle and watch the dish washer. Remove the back panel and hear the sound of origination. Take suitable action as per your convenience. You can clean & replace the bearings if they are worn or replace as a whole unit.
It is probably a dying recirculation/drain pump. It serves both purposes so is only off when the drying cycle starts.
If the bearings are going bad the seals will probably fail soon too since they will be more stressed by any wobble in the pump shaft due to wear.
It could be the impeller on the motor. The impeller fits over the shaft of the motor and might have split/broken up. That funny noise is probably the shaft spinning inside the damage impeller. Fortunately the impeler is fairly inexpensive and easy to replace. I believe there are one or two parts/covers to remove that are held in by a roughly half dozen torx screws.
