Help! My Whirlpool Quiet Partner II isn't working at all. Water was standing in bottom at end of last 2 cycles, but on the last cycle, I came home to clean looking dishes, standing water, and a machine that won't turn on at all- no lights on any buttons- nothing works.

GE GHDA485N 10CS Dishwasher that has standing water in the bottom after the cycle completes. I pulled it out and reconnected power and ran a rinse cycle. I could see that water was pumping out the clear drain pipe but there was still about an inch of standing water in the bottom. Any thoughts as to what part has failed. Does the system use a water level switch or a timed drain cycle to determine when the water has pumped out. If it is a timed cycle could a slow drain cause the problem. Thank you
