Hi, W/D here.

Your panel may be able to be changed. Look at the top of your panel for a trim piece held in place with screws.. Remove the screws and try to slide your panel front up and out. If it will come out like this, you can change your color very easily. In fact, some dishwashers came with 2 panels with each side painted a different color (harvest gold or avocado green anyone?). If your panel will not come apart, all is not lost....
I have seen panel covers available on EBay, in the dishwasher section. Some are sheetmetal and some were like sticky backed foil. If you're going stainless, this might be the route to take.
If you are artistic, you can mask and paint the panel with either a spray enamel, or one of the newer plastic paints. Not crafty? remove the door and take to an auto painter. I know for a fact that most of them will paint a refrigerator (ahem), so a dishwasher can be done as well.
Hope that this at least sparked a few ideas! Best regards, --W/D--
