Why won't my Kenmore Ultrawash Quietguard 3 dishwasher power up?

The dishwasher hasn't washed well for several months, now it doesn't even turn on. There is no power or anything to show that it even CAN or ever could turn on. Also, I've checked a number of times from the inside and took apart things to see if I could see anything wrong. All I ever found was some calcium/grease gunk buildup in the area past the filter thingy. Everything else was clean pretty much. It seems to be an electric problem/failure, yet nothing seems to be wrong. Pressing any buttons results in no response from the machine. Power is fine (I tried checking the breaker), but no lights light up at all. Someone else mentioned that 'wirenuts' may have melted or something? I checked those and they are fine as well. I'm probably missing something obvious, but I can't find out what's wrong. Any suggestions?
