I tried a serach but couldn't find a suitable answer, hoping someone here can help. So, in short our dishwasher was put on last night without the water supply on, noticed it after maybe 5 minutes, so immediately turned it off. Trying to resolve this, I've pushed some buttons, but can't change the cycle or select a new cycle, to start a fresh wash (with the water supply on this time!). So, it's stuck mid-cycle, can I just put water in the front/main door and then leet it carry on with it's cycle? It's an older model, about 12 years old and is a Diplomat ACA 9202, so not a very well known or expennsive brand.
Most dishwashers have a "cancel" option to end the current cycle and start over. Consult the manual, perhaps? Unfortunately what I've been able to find for "online" manuals for this model appear to be from very sketchy sites that don't load, perhaps you have a paper version that's 12 years old?
If no luck there:
Try turning the circuit breaker feeding it off for a minute or more.
