One of 3 things, either there is an open on one of the circuits or both circuits are on the same leg or one of the breakers is tripped. A leg-leg short over the recep clip would probably produce a rather spectacular light show.

Yeah, I figured that one of the legs wasn't tripped and one was. Every time I reset it blew a blue flash at the panel. This circuit hasn't been touched for 15 years at least

I was troubleshooting the dishwasher issue. First I disconnected the dishwasher and flash happened again. Then I dug further into the problem
