My start buttons are not working on my Jenn Air and when I opened the control panel, there is Roach waste all over it...I am going to gently clean it off with alcohol and HOPE that that fixes it...is there a way to prevent these squatters from living inside my dishwasher?

Roach Prufe!

Get some, put it under your DW and kill all the roaches. It really works!

I am getting the Roach Prufe today!!! Thank you ThatGuy!!

So, I cleaned all the roach poop off gently with alcohol and q-tips (see before and after) but read in another thread (see attached) to remove ribbon cable and clean edge but I don't think my ribbon cable can be removed. Is there anything else I can unattached and clean the poop to make sure it's all clean (and HOPEFULLY working :-)

Remove the ribbon cable from the keypad to the control board at the control board.
Clean the edge connector.
If it is the type where there is not a connector just the insulation is removed, it can be cleaned with a pencil eraser. Do not use an ink eraser as it is too abrasive.
Check the tracks in the ribbon cable for hairline cracks. A magnifying glass helps here.
Would not hurt to clean the connector on the board. Use electronics contact cleaner or isopropyl alcohol and a tooth brush. Be gentle and do not reconnect till all the solvent evaporates.
Reconnect everything and give it a try.
