Kitchenaid dishwasher clean light blinking 7 times

Model # KUDM01TJBL0
Dishwasher won't drain. Already replaced the Thermal Fuse, Control Board and Control Panel. Took out the screen on the floor of the washer and scrubbed clean all the built up residue. Put everything back together & it still won't drain or even come on at all except for the blinking light.

The clean light blinking on some models indicate a water heat problem.   My first question would be does the water seem hot at the end of the cycle.  The dishes would be almost to hot to pick up if the dishwasher is heating the water properly.  You should try running the diagnostic test below.  All the lights should come on if entered successfully and the water valve, motor and element would all be on for a few moments.  Try the test and then try a regular wash and see if you can determine if the element is working in the water heat cycle.  For further assistance please reply with any additional details.
