Exclamation Kitchenaid dishwasher DEAD-no thermal fuse?

Hello, seeking advice
2013 Kitchenaid KDTE404DSS0 was working perfectly fine. Uninstalled, when re-installed, the unit suddenly was 1st acting like it wasn't getting water, ran it again, then it didn't drain. Hit the "cancel/ drain button, it tried to drain but no water noise, just air sound. Tried again, unit died, no lights, nothing. Tested outlets, fuses. Then looked for thermal fuse but this dishwasher doesn't have one! How can I get power back and what may have caused the original problem lack of water / then drain issue? Thank you very much

Welcome to the forums.

Have you tried powering the unit down for several minutes ?
It may reset the processor.

Double check your connections where the house wiring connects.
Next step is to check the door switch.

There should have been a tech sheet in a plastic bag behind the kick plate.
Did you see it ? That's a mini manual for your machine.

House connections are fine, but this model does not have a toe kick and there is no model anywhere. It has a piece smooth front with hidden controls on top, thank you for your advice

Here is the tech sheet for your washer. Download and save it.
It shows a main fuse in the power supply. That may be on the control board.

Let me know when you have it as I don't leave tech sheets posted.

Can the fuse be reset or needs to be replaced?

It helps having some basic servicing knowledge if you want to do your own repairs. The diagram is too large for me to post but I've shown a little portion of it. I used pink as neutral and red as hot/L. The actual colors are on the diagram. L and N are the start of the 120v power.

The neutral connects to many places in the dishwasher. Almost every part shares the neutral.
Following the red line up you'll see a fuse. I don't know where that is. It looks to be on the board although it's not any board pictures I looked at. That fuse looks to protect the power supply. If it's bad..... no low voltage control. It may not be a user serviceable fuse. It may solder in place.
