the lights are all flashing on my kitchenaid dishwasher and it stopped in the middle of a cycle and refused to continue. Does it need a new control panel? Because this is the 3rd time it has broken. The repair fee is $129 plus a new control panel (again) plus a repeat visit to install-should i just buy a new dishwasher? This one's a lemon! I replaced the control panel and the heating element already.

Does the dishwasher work okay otherwise?
no, it does not work at all.
it was perfect until it started blinking
Well, two things-I'm in NYC where everything is $$$ and I had this repair company out before and that's what happened.
Also, I'm a 58 year old woman who can replace a light bulb but that's about it! :)
Yeah, well it's through Kitchenaid online so of course it's pricey.
Truth is what I need to know after all these repairs, should I junk the unit? I've already spent an amount that could've bought me a new one. So throw good money after bad?

A & E is the service company! $129 for an initial call. And I would replace the dishwasher with a rotary dial machine because this is just bogus! I've spent over $500 repairing this machine. Does it sound like a lemon to you? I mean do all of them break every year? I can't imagine that to be the case.
Also, what do the flashing lights mean? Does it sound like it needs another control panel?
