GE Dishwasher, Cannot press start

Out of the blue I cannot press start on my dishwasher. I attached a picture of the control panel. I can turn off added heat, steam dry. I can switch to light load, but cannot change it back to normal wash and cannot start it, please help!

That is a typical problem with dishwashers. The hot wet air is vented thru the top of the door right into the keypad. If some buttons work and not all of them.... it is a keypad membrane problem.

Try turning power off to the dishwasher for a few minutes and see if that clears the problem. If not.... the keypad probably needs to be replaced.

Post the model number of the unit for me.
