So unfortunately any flashing light on the touchpad other than the clean light (the clean light indicates an error if it's blinking by itself). Either way, if lights are blinking it means that the buttons for those lights are stuck or shorted. This touchpad has been known to have lots of problems and fail due to the steam coming from the dishwasher. You can try to unplug the dishwasher and heat up the touchpad with a hair dryer. Then rub your thumb over the buttons who's lights are blinking. See if they will reset when you re-apply power. If not then you need to replace the touch control panel so below is a link to the part. I'm very sorry about the bad news.
