Kenmore 665.17052.402 washer won't start

Hi, I have a Kenmore Dishwasher Model 665.17052.402, Type 877-0. The symptom is that it would not start. I believe the control input board is OK as when I pressed the Smart Wash button, it and the Heated Dry lights would come on [and time out in about 15 seconds]. The problem is it would not start as it would before when I press Start. Last time I had this problem and my wife came over the close the door more forcefully and then press the start .. it worked .. Now she cannot repeat the success. We can also lock and unlock the control [the 4 second press] .. The only thing we do not have is flashing lights, any flashing lights .. We have even pulled the power plug under the sink and waited 15 seconds to force the start sequencing .. Can you help me ? Thanks.

Thanks, AnneJ. These documents are very helpful ..

I am actually an electrical engineer, even though for the past 30 years I had a power transmission and distribution equipment sales job. I still need to read and understand relay ladder diagrams..

Just one additional assistance --- I assume that the electrical circuit boards are located within the front panel and the only access is to remove the stainless steel panel from the rear by the many tork screws ?

Thanks again ..
