Moved into a 3 yr. old rental home in October, and the dishwasher died the day after Christmas. Noticed on Christmas night that several lights on the control panel were flashing, i.e. the delay lights were blinking in order - 2-4-8, and I think a couple of other lights might have been blinking, too - wasn't paying that close attention. I opened the dishwasher, then closed it again and it stopped blinking. It was not midcycle or anything, but WAS full of dirty dishes (of course, isn't that the only time it would break?)
Next day - nothing. Won't start, won't hum, no lights, just dead. Breaker not tripped in the garage.
Any ideas? Landlord on vacation and can't be reached - thought I might attempt something myself, if not too costly.
