Appl-Tech :

Hello, thanks for letting us answer your questions. We appreciate your business!

Appl-Tech :

Before getting into too much, try completely cutting the power to the dishwasher and waiting for about 1 minute and then repower it. It may be all you need to reset the computer board.

Customer:

I can do that by flipping the breaker right?

Appl-Tech :

Yes exactly

Customer:

Appl-Tech :

You have done what is needed to check it out. The problem you have is the keypad is shorted out. You will have to replace it.

Appl-Tech :

what color is your machine?

Customer:

black

Appl-Tech :

Do you have the tech sheet for your machine?

Customer:

I have the user manual and the installation manual

Appl-Tech :

Here is the tech sheet. If you look where it says "Checking the Keypad" you can do some tests to confirm the problem

Appl-Tech :

Here is a link for purchasing the part if you choose to try to repair it yourself.

Appl-Tech :

This a snippet from the tech guide:


A rapidly blinking LED over
one of the keys of the keypad
(or sometimes a “dead”
keypad/console) indicates one
or more key switch lines are
stuck or shorted on either the
control or the keypad. To
determine if the control or
keypad is faulty, do the
following test:

Appl-Tech :

Did you have any other question for me today?

Appl-Tech :
