Check the wiring between the door where it goes underneath. Sometimes it will wear and short out. Another possible solution If you can see the dry element feel it for holes or missing pieces. If it burns out it will usually short out just like the oven element on an electric stove.

It certainly sounds like you have the diagnosis about right. Clearly there are still internal components that are wet and they are causing various short circuits that will cause trips and strange behaviour.One of a couple of things will have happened here:
Either the machine will dry out and return to normal operation (you would be surprised at what a soaking electrical equipment can take and still work once dried out) or the soaking has blown a controller board and the machine will need diagnosis and repair.
My first step would be to pull the machine out and leave it in a warm and well ventilated place for about a week (A conservatory is a great place for drying if you have one). After a week, try the machine and you will quickly learn if it has dried out and survived or not. If it is still dead, then call for a repairer.
A couple of things to note here: Firstly: Be patient and wait the whole week. Every time you turn the machine on and it fails because a component is still wet, you run the risk of killing a component that had managed to survive the initial problem. Secondly: If the machine is worth the repair, it is probably best to call out someone qualified. This kind of problem is a DIY nightmare and you can find yourself buying components that dont fix the problem, or worse, that you blow up, because the problem was somewhere else and all you did was put a new component in place for the fault to destroy. Better to call out someone who knows what they are doing, has test equipment and who will blow up their own components that they paid ffor rather than yours!
Hello bidness_67 please check inside of the sink cabinet look for a switch on the back wall. If there is one flip it. Many new building electrical codes require a switchto turn off power to the dishwasher. Sometimes when putting items in the cabinet the switch is hit unknowingly. If there is no switch check outlets (the GFCI ones)and press the reset then check the dishwasher.if not those two items check breaker box for a tripped breaker.
These have been known to leak water into the door panel. If so the water can cause a short. Your breaker is keeping the machine from lighting up. Check any seals that may have been braeched in the door. Start at the dispencer latch
does it trip power as soon as its plugged in.drain hose may have gotten kinked behind drawer and broke leaking on to power board behind lower drawer. THE POWER to this thing must be removed before taking anything apart on these dishwashers. IT IS RECCOMENDED TO HAVE A TRAINED TECH WORK ON THIS they are delicate good luck!
Make sure wash arms are going around. Set the arms to point right at you and mark with a marker (so you can tell if the arms moved, not just turned 180 degrees) and run the unit for a few seconds. If the spray arms don't move, look for obstucted holes in the spray arm(s). Toothpicks, plastic candy wrapers, seeds, etc. If all clear, so an "Ask Me" for other ideas.
