Question about KitchenAid Dishwashers
Tried resetting the circuit breaker. When I reset, the pump shut off when the door is closed again. Touch any button (cancel/start) and the pump starts running continuously. no lights light up on the control panel. pump keeps running until door is opened again.

Did you have a power outage recently? They are notorious for damaging circuit boards--usually about 3-4 weeks after the power interruption strange things will either start happening or *not* happening with appliances due to damaged computer chips on the boards starting to fail. Your symptoms indicate either a blown user interface(push button panel) or a defective main control board(board with the brains on it) or both!

Model # is listed above in original post. No water underneath. If I pour water into bottom of tub, the pump will drain the water out. I can watch the water through transparent drain tubing as it pumps out. No water outside of tub anywhere. Tub drains complete and pump keeps running. If I turn off the breaker & wait 10 minutes or so, the pump will stay off until the door is reclosed or the control buttons are touched at all. Any button, its back to continuous with no led on panel lit.

Seems like the anti flood is activated when water (even a small amount) appears on the bottom of the machiene. This is usualy a leaking pipe but can also be caused by a clogged pipe. Most machiens do have a plastic pipe that (from the flat water tank) feeds water to the bottom of the machiene in case of an internal fault. The anti flood is normaly a polystireen float with micro switch on the base of the washer. This automatically puts the outlet pump on to drain the water. The machiene does not work exept the outlet pump in this mode.

It would help to know what the make and model of the dishwasher is.
Most likely the flood switch at the base has been activated.
