Our dishwasher just stopped working. All the lights seem to function properly and are acting normally. There was water left in the bottom of it as well.

I found the paper and have tried running the service mode.

When I activate the service mode, I hear a sound that sounds like the door is locking and the lights all light up for a bit then go off. When I push the various buttons to test each service mode item, the light comes on and I hear a click near the top of the door and then nothing (nothing for any of the button - nothing runs).

In addition, I took out the dishwasher and took apart quite a bit of the drain system, tubing, etc on the bottom and nothing was blocked. I checked the drain tube, the little red valve, etc.

I'm have a vom, and am comfortable with electronics, electrical, etc. so need some advice to hone in on the problem.

Thanks so much!

There is no lock per se, rather there's a tab with a plastic block on it that sticks out at the top of the body of the DW. That engages a plastic plunger in the hole at the top of the door. That plunger activates 2 microswitches. If the block on the end of the tab isn't pushing it down right or the plunger is sticking those switches don't activate and nothing happens.

No problem. Out of my 'flock' ('herd'?) of six or seven hundred of that style DW it's happened to me once or thrice...
