I just had a very similar problem.  Display wouldnt come on at all, but before i got there, they said it was acting weird, dim, etc.  I put a new board on, and got nothing.  I put a new panel on and got nothing..  I started unplugging things on the board and found that the turbidity sensor had a short in it and it was causing the problem. 
The turbidity sensor had shorted out their original board and my new board.  I had to put a new sensor in, a second new board and the touch pad to get it to work.
try changing the sensor WPW10705575
after I put the sensor in, I had to replace the NEW board I had put in.  apparently the sensor took it out as well...

Hi
   I replaced the sensor on this unit  after replacing control panel & main control. Then I replacing the control panel again with same thing--normal
lite flashing--others dimly lit & only cancel drain worked.Maybe I will change the main board again. It was the first time I had to break the sensor to replace it.
First time I,ve come across a dishwasher with this problem. Usually replaced control panel & away they worked again.
  Thanks for your info. Will let you know how I make out.  Rene

It sounds like you have almost identical problem that I had. I did the same thing replace the control board and the panel, then replaced the sensor. Until I replace the board again, it wouldn't work
