With either original or newly purchased control board, diagnostic test (i.e., touchpanel disconnected) fails: no spontaneous 2-minute motor spin.

With touchpanel, etc., all connected, unit exhibits intermittent spontaneous behavior: a few lights lit, and brief motor spin. Sometimes pressing "Drain Off" button elicits expected motor spin. Multiple alternating "unlock/reset" button-push sequences have no effect. Once recently, with reconditioned control board, pressing "Normal Wash" didn't cause its LED to light, but then pressing "Start" resulted in several, but not all, normal wash steps.

All significant components within the unit (including main touchpanel matrix paths) that are testable with meter -- either voltage when unit is energized, or resistance when not -- seem within numbers on spec sheet (part no. 8051288).

Everything you are describing sounds like a bad touchpad/console assembly, (the membrane keypads are known for this type of failure).

With apologies to the two experts who so promptly replied, I'd still like to explore what shoud happen withOUT the touchpad connected.  If control board and all else (besides touchpad) are still connected, should I hear 2-minute motor spin?  (It's mentioned on a comment somewhere re a different Kenmore dishwasher.)  In general, for my model, is there ANY kind of test, without touchpad connected, of control board, etc.?

Thanks again to the two experts for quick replies!  Focusing with them on touchpad, I actually tested it first.*  Ohms readings for all combinations (shown on a Web page) of P1-11 through P-13, and P1-2 through P1-6 seemed OK.

__________

* By first, I mean even before ordering (what turned out to be refurbished) control board, which seems to not help:erratic behavior with touchpad connected, and no action without it.

Have you checked the main power connection at the box (located bottom/right behind access panel) for damaged or shorted wire connectors?

To PDuff: Sorry I didn't make clear in my initial "All significant components within the unit (including main touchpanel matrix paths) that are testable with meter -- either voltage when unit is energized, or resistance when not -- seem within numbers on spec sheet ..." that, as expected, I get 110 VAC across control board pins P7 - P8 (of course with door switch closed).
