I have a KitchenAid Dishwasher
And a number stamped inside the door: 678792004
When I push the start button and release, nothing happens.
When I push the start button and hold it for about 10 seconds the NORMAL wash light blinks a few times and then goes blank.
If I push the HIGH TEMP button and/or ENGERY SAVINGS DRY buttons, they light up, however nothing turns on when I push the start button.
If I push the CANCEL/DRAIN button, the washer kicks on and sounds like it is draining, of course it is bone dry in the washer with no blockages, just pretty stainless steel.
The lock button lights up after being pushed for four seconds and then again unlocks.
What gives, why won't this thing wash dishes? How do I fix it?

What is the average lifespan on this type of part?
3.482 years, standard deviation of 2.876 years
So you can go through the same experience on another dishwasher?
Should I scrap the thing and buy a more reliable product/brand?
Current repair stats on new appliances are that you'll be doing some type of repair on them every two to four years. How much is a new one? How long should appliances last?

I replaced the control board as you suggested. This did not change anything but my blood pressure. Here I sit on a Saturday morning thinking that I may have to actually wash dishes by hand. I need more suggestions as to make this thing work, I'm running out of paper plates and plastic silverware. What is the next suggestion?

Have you verified that you're getting good, steady voltage to the control board?

The repairman was able to start the wash cycle in "Demo" mode by using a combination of the other buttons. It started an abbreviated wash and drain cycle which led him to believe it was the touch button itself on the pad.
