Hello. My Briva dishwasher was working fine and now nothing. My husbands volt meter shows 120amps however nothing happens. The board that lights up when you choose a wash doesn't light up, it makes no noise, nothing. When you plug it in, the only thing that happens is it shows electricity getting into it with that meter. Does anyone have any ideas or know if it could be the temp fuse? Or perhaps something more involved? Thanks so much for your time and experience.

Your post is a little confusing but I'll try my best.
First, it sounds like you fixed the sink problem and now have a dishwasher problem related to the backup.
I would take the drain line off both the sink and the dishwasher and clear anything that got stuck in there while fixing the main sink drain. It could have had something plugged into it by using a plunger on the sink.
If you have any standing water in the dishwasher, pushing the cancel button should activate the water pump and you should see the water drain into the insinkerator, etc whilst hearing the pump. If you hear the pump and see no water draining but still have water in the dishwasher, you have a clogged line. If you don't hear the pump, your pump might not be working or the cancel does not activate the pump.
Check the valve under your sink. If that's on go to the dishwasher. Remove the bottom panel. Locate the water inlet valve (usually on the left hand side. Pull the two wires from it and put your voltmeter on it. Start the dishwasher and watch the meter. If it shows 120v then the valve is bad. if you don't get 120v, the board or timer is bad.
You more than likely have a faulty motor on your dishwasher. This would be the main motor that pushes the water through the spray arms inside the dishwasher.
There should be a tech sheet behind the control panel of your dishwasher or maybe behind the lower kickplate. This will give you the readings for the motor so you can test with a volt meter.
Give this a look first. If the motor tests good then you may be looking into replacing the timer.
