I used the "rinse only" cycle on the dishwasher a little while ago. I've never used this cycle before. After dinner I tried to start the dishwasher, but no other buttons on the panel respond except the last one I used, which is the rinse only cycle. I push and push, I tried pushing and holding, nothing works, I get no lights no anything. I've been using the "light wash" cycle for a long time and I normally just push the start button and the last cycle used starts automatically, so I wasn't a

Whirlpool dishwasher This dishwasher quit in the middle of a wash cycle,we had to empty it and wash by hand. I thought that maybe the breaker to the dishwasher popped but when checked it had not .I then noticed that there are no lights on the electronic key board .Even when not in use there should be one red LED that is lit. It almost seems as if there is no power to the dishwasher. Is there some type of backup safety switch or breaker on the dishwasher itself that I could reset?

When trying to start the dishwasher, pressing the Normal wash button, the dishwasher gives a huge clunk and then it trips the circuit breaker. Upon resetting the breaker, I tried the next button over, which is Soak and Wash, and it seems to go thru the cycle fine. Another time I tried the Normal button, but put the left dial on Rinse and it started up, but it would clunk periodically and it seemed to have a 'hot' smell.
