I have a Kenmore dishwasher Model 587.1511590 Not a fancy one, just has wash, light wash and rinse and hold cycles. It has always worked great until recently. Loaded dishes, turned dial, red light came on and nothing else. No motor started, no water goes in, nothing. I am handy but have never had to fix a dishwasher so don't know where to begin to troubleshoot it. Any ideas? I am retired and can't afford a repair personso back to washing dishes the old fashioned way, by hand.

Thanks for any and all advice!

If it wasn't doing aything at all, I might suspect a problem in its power supply (blown fuse, etc.) or a problem in the door latch switch. The latter *might* still be a possibility.

Other than that, a problem in the timer or selector switch might be possibilities?
