I installed a new Whirlpool dishwasher from Lowes. When circuit breaker is turned on, panel LED lights for Normal and Heat dry flashes twice, then go dark. Turn circuit breaker off and on again and Normal and Heat dry flashes once and goes dark. All panel buttons remain unlit and not responsive as if there is no power.
I am getting 110 out of the wall and the ground is good. Seems like I am missing a crucial reset step or something. None of the reset procedures in the manual help; they actual refer to resetting in standby mode whatever that is. The reset help here on this forum doesn't match my model - the manufacture date of this model was 02/12. Hard to do anyway with a unresponsive panel. Circuit breaker or GFI does not trip. Ohm meter when hooked up to the black and white washer wires does not move off of 1 as if there is an open circuit. I re-installed the old dishwasher which runs and Ohm meter reads 0 with the door closed and 1 with the door open - seems to be correct but I have very limited electrical knowledge.
This is actually the second dishwasher from Lowes - I returned the first one (different model Whirlpool) thinking the panel was bad, Chances of two faulty units from the factory are pretty low so I think I am missing something. Any ideas?
