Hi! So I got up this morning and started loading the dishwasher. My 1 year old decided he was going to "help" me by holding the top of the door while opening and closing it repeatedly. I tried turning it on after that and nothing. No lights or sounds coming from it at all. I flipped the breaker, took the power supply wires off and put them back on then turned the breaker back on but still nothing. Any ideas what I can do next? Thanks!

based on your scenario, I would first look at door latch/ locking mechanism failure.

Thank you I checked that and everything seems fine there. I did however take the control board off and near where the power supply wires go in there is a burned looking spot on the board.

if it is actually a burn spot, then first rule of repair... repair the obvious problem first. Of course the caveat to that is to make sure there is nothing preexisting that will duplicate the problem.

It's possible repeatedly closing the door could have shorted the board or maybe weakened some solder or something that was already damaged by an earlier burn.

There is a rubberized material on the board just under what looks like some kind of black relay and it has burned all the way through the clear rubber material. He had his hand on the touch panel pushing buttons while he was opening and closing the door. We had issues in the past with the flood switch needing replaced but I didn't even check the control board that time
