KitchenAid dishwasher not starting

I have a relatively new KitchenAid dishwasher model KDFE304. It has a series of LEDs across the top to indicate status.

My dishwasher will not run. The dishwasher has water, the overflow float is not blocked (it is all the way down), I cleaned the filter and the door is fully closed. The CONTROL LOCK button is not selected (the LED is not on..
But still it won't start
When I press the START button, all the usual LEDs light (Pro Wash, START, Add dishes and WASHING).
After about 30 seconds all the LEDs go off - except the CANCEL LED, which comes on.

It doesn't do anything more. I recycled power as well. Still no luck. What could be wrong?
