I replaced the front panel touch pad about 1.5 months ago. The lights were blinking and it would not run properly. This seemed to solve the problem until yesterday. The dishwasher(DW) went through the cycle however it did not drain and appears to be dead - no power. Checked the breaker box and that was ok. Any ideas - this is my daughter's DW so I have not had a chance to look at it. Thermal fuse? Any other ideas?

Probably an open thermal fuse in the control panel.  See more about it and how to test it here:

The main reason why these open up is because of poor water flow over the heater during the heat part of the wash cycle.  Make sure the pump is not plugged full of junk and that the spray arms are turning properly.  Make sure the door is closing tight and easily too - misaligned door latches can cause this too.
