How to reset my control panel in my dishwasher 16572200 Kenmore Elite?

I just replaced my fuse with the fuse kit. It restored power, but the unit doesn't start. It stays in the sensing mode.

Thank you for the reply. I will be helping you with the question. Fred has taken vacation for the next week. By what you have stated, it sounds like you have narrowed the problem down to a drain problem. The easiest way to determine the problem is with a volt ohmmeter. If you have a meter and can safely, check live voltages please follow the information below. First, turn the power off and remove the lower access panel. Then locate and remove the wires to the drain pump. Once the wires are disconnected, connect the meter leads to each wire and turn the meter to check ac voltage. Then turn the power on, select a cancel, and close the door. When two is displayed and the door is closed, you should have 120 volts ac on the wires. If you have the voltage, I recommend replacing the drain pump. If you do not have the voltage, I recommend ohming the wires to the drain pump. If they are ok I would suspect a defective control board. Please let me know if you need further assistance.

I figured out how to remove the basket and I have determined that there is no blockage between the outflow and the drain connect to my sink. Either my pump is broken or the control panel isn't sending the signal to turn on the pump.

I think the reason it isn't turning past the sensing mode is the un-drained water in the dishwasher. Even though there isn't enough to raise the float to shut it off.

When I cancel, it shows the number 2 for the drain cycle, but nothing happens. It still times out correctly.

I need to determine if the pump is okay or needs replacing.

Thanks Fred,
I got the panel to clear this way. Now I need to find out why it won't drain. I cannot find any screws to take the basket out of the bottom of the washer. Do you unscrew that one center plastic threaded piece in the center? I didn't want to break it.

There is not really a reset for this particular problem but the thing to try first is to enter the diagnostic cycle.

The instructions to enter the diagnostic test for this dishwasher is in the image below.

Try this and give me a reply with any additional details or questions for further assistance.

I can understand the confusion after completing repairs and confirming power and have the unit still not start. I located a previous expert post for reset of a similar dishwasher. The suggestions may prove helpful while you wait for the expert to review this model and situation. I attached the link below. Hope this helps.
