Paul,  looks like you have a phase 4 unit.  I don't know how far you are into this but on that model there is a mode in the motor controller where it can shut down.  This can be caused by the thermal trip on the pump.  If this occurs the module will not restart unless the power is turned off at the wall for at least 90 seconds. Try that first.  The color of the motor controller identifies what phase you have...phase 4 should be yellow.  If you succeed in getting the power back,  Press the wash temp down button and the power button together...you should enter diag mode.  Then push the regular cycle button,  this will turn the pump on or off to test it.  Hope this helps you man...Ron
