Check that the new panel isn't pushing down on any of the buttons when you reassemble it. Compare it with the old panel and look closely for any differences. Ive come across it a few times where changes to panels have been made and its supplied to fit yours but the changes prevent correct operation. You may have to file or cut any part off which interferes with the switches or controls. This happens when there are production line changes on the same models.

First step is similar to a computer. Reboot. Turn off your dishwasher at the breaker box. Hopefully your electrician designated a separate breaker for your dishwasher, otherwise whatever else is on that breaker will be off. Shut the breaker off; wait 10-15 minutes; turn breaker back on. This will resolve many issues and is the first step to try.

There is an adjustment for that OR the unit got snagged when it was installed. You need to remove it from under the counter a little and see if it opens all the way. There are pulleys, springs etc near the bottom of the door that adjust that tension. Make sure they are not caught on the cabinets etc.

"water not draining" and "Not getting water" seem to be mutually exclusive.
If it is not draining but the motor is running you need a pump replacement.
If it isn't getting water you may need a water valve.

it would be improbable that you put too tall an item on the top rack every time you wash, but it is also impossible to check without a see thru tub. Just make sure there are no tall items and maybe lower the top rack.
Some dishwashers have the top arm on the bottom of the rack and use a connection in the back when the rack is pushed in. If yours does make sure it isn't deformed and not making properly.

Try to determine the area where the squeak is coming from. Does it happen as you are opening the door. On many models it is caused by the rollers, and/or the springs that counter-balance the door. WD-40 does a lot of things, but long lasting lubrication is not one of them. Try a silicone or teflon grease in the roller bearing axle. Also try to put some kind of plastic sleeve over the hook of the spring as it attaches to the frame of the dishwasher. If it still squeaks after you've tried these suggestions, you may need to replace the spring tension rollers, they're not too expensive. Hope this helps.
