I had the same problem with my dishwasher. After hearing that the motherboard was the problem I decided to take a closer look. There were two capacitors (1000 microfarads, 6.3 volts) that looked a little suspect. The tops of capacitors should be flat...these looked like soda cans that had been left in the freezer. Got on eBay, located the capacitors for roughly $3 and $4 shipping, for approx total of $10. Soldered the two new capacitors into the motherboard and put it back together. As soon as I closed the door, the dishwasher started draining the water. When I ran a Normal cycle it completed successfully. Saved myself over $120!

this normally indicates an error code, what is the make and model number? also which lights are flashing?

it has few functions , so break them down to this.
does water flow in correctly . hot an cold
does the pump re-cycle water well inside . reflow lots of spray.
then does it pump out correctly an flow easily into garbage disposal , check the back flow valve for stoppage if it has one {its in the large plastic pipe right before the disposal.lets water flow but compactor garbage is blocked, it sticks a lot closed }
and is the door latch secure test it by opening suddenly is all you can do.
you might have to open the door quickly to check these items like spray or pumping.

Is sink drain line clogged?
Disconnect drain line at sink tailpiece and lower down to see if water inside dishwasher drains.
Call serviceman to clear clog in dishwasher hose, or repair dishwasher pump motor.

The latch may be misaligned, damaged or defective.

This could be sudden failure of the cycle timer or some element controlled by the timer such as the pump.

There is always the possibility that the replacement heating element is defective.

The powdery residue is likely limescale, although I have worked in some catering kitchens where it was a used by a block-type detergent. Descale it with a product like CLR or white vinegar or follow the manufacturers instructions.

In hard water areas you may need a product like Calgon in every wash.

A lot of dishwashers that fail completely (no power at all but with water in the bottom) fail because of a blown up power switcher chip on and/or smoothing resistor on the power supply section of the main controller board. Usually these components blow as the heater kicks in to heat the water as this is the point of highest current draw. I would unplug the machine and locate the main controller board, disconnect all the cables from it and open it up (take care to wear gloves and not touch any capacitors or sensitive components) inspect the board for blown chips, and burned cracked resistors, or domed/bulging capacitors as these three are the main culprits. If the switcher chip has gone, it is usually starts with LNK___ or TNY___ and the main resistors are usually around 100ohm 3watt 5% tolerance (brown black brown gold) some have a 5th whitish/yellow band on one end that denotes it has a safety fuse built in.... But this isn't something I would consider vital. You can always add a fuse in series with the resistor if you REALLY want to!
I have added photos of a common controller board's big resistor and switcher chip (both after being replaced) for reference to what I was explaining above. This switcher was a TNY264GN that had cracked and blown up along with the resistor.
