Alright, appliance gurus. I sumbit the following for your consideration:

My dishwasher is a Whirlpool Gold Quiet Wash Plus, model #GU940SCGB2.

I loaded it up tonight, closed the door, and hit Normal wash on the keypad. Nothing happened. I pressed all of the other buttons on the keypad one by one. Nothing happened. No noise, no lights, no nothing. It was as if the machine was unplugged, which I assure you, it was not.

I unloaded it, and to my surprise, I see about an inch of water in the bottom of the machine. I last ran the dishwasher last week, and the dishes were clean as a whistle, and I honestly don't remember if the green light was on that lets me know it is finished.

Any ideas on this?
Is it something major or can I fix it myself?

You might have lost power to the d/w, check for voltage.  Your door switch(s) might have gone out.  You might have blown the fuse on the control board. Your control board might have bit the dust.  I would suspect a door switch or fuse first tho.

Yep, check that power junction box for 120vac.  If that's good, you'll need to check the door switches (item 11, two each). 

Also, this war story from one of my dishwasher battles might encourage you.

Pegi is right. The first thing to do is start at where voltage is present, and follow it into the machine to where it is no longer present. If power is getting to your control board and no power is coming off of it, the odds would be that the board has gone south and taken mama with it.
