If there is test button as well as a reset button on the device behind the
dishwasher, push the test button first and then the reset button.
I have however seen circuit breakers fail and you cannot tell just by
looking at them if they are good or not. The breaker would have to be pulled
and tested independently of your circuit in question. This by the sounds of
it, isn't something that you should be trying yourself.
If your dishwasher works and the ceiling light doesn't and they are on the
same circuit (which they shouldn't be) you have a wiring problem that you
may not be able to solve yourself. This of course assumes that it isn't a
question of a bad light bulb, socket or light switch.
At this point where you are "grasping at straws" for a solution and don't
have the skill to solve the problem, I would bite the bullet and hire an
electrician as the cost of a funeral is far more than that of an
