First off I just replaced the control board  about three months ago.  Since that time it has been running great.

 

Started it tonight, opened it mid cycle closed the door nothing. Control light up I can change cycles put it in test mode.

But nothing happens, no water pumps out, wash does not start, only the light shine.

 

Faulty door switch?

Just an update no matter what I did I could not get it to start last night. 

Tried canceling, tried the test mode.  Anyway woke up this morning to it running.

emptied it reloaded it and it started again no problem.  Will see if the same problem

creeps up again.

 

All I can think of is it was opened at the wrong moment and the control board did not

know what to do or for some reason too hot? Weird!

My guess it a sticking door switch or the latch pawl wasn't actuating the switch properly.  Sometimes just leveling the dishwasher will fix the problem.

Good thought on checking for level.  I was wonder to if it could of been a stuck float switch the washer sump had full water in it when the door was opened.

 

Since that time though it has been running perfect with up to 2 loads of dishes a day.

 

If it were the door switch I imagine one will still get indicator lights, but the unit would not start?

You may be able to enter commands to the control but for the unit to run both sides of the door switch have to be properly actuated.
