Kitchenaid kude70fxss5 wont start

Yesterday I had a disposal problem (dirty water was backing up into other side of sink) which cleared up after a few seconds.
Today I tried to run my dishwasher and it doesn't even try to start and after 30 seconds or so the light turns off. It makes no noises at all.
There is a little dirty water in the bottom of the tub, but not very much.
The drain and filter at the bottom are clear.
The outlet hose to the disposal is clear.
The disposal runs freely.

I've been trying to reboot the computer by pressing 'hi temp wash' and the heated dry button, which is what resets several other models, but it doesn't reset this one.
Does anyone know how to reset this dishwasher or have any other suggestions for me? I cant find anything specific to this dishwasher online.The dishwasher is only about 3 months old and we've had no problems prior to this.

Found my registration, we bought the dishwasher 10 months ago. (bought a clothes washer 3 months ago, that confused me.)

Throw the circuit breaker - that will surely reboot the DW - whether it works or not is another question. If that doesn't work, call for service - it's still under warranty.
