Good morning. My name is ***** ***** I'll be assisting you with your dishwasher today. The normal light blinking is an error code on this model number. It means that the dishwasher thinks the normal button was held for more than 17 seconds. Try to flip the breaker off to the dishwasher or unplug the dishwasher. Then heat up the touchpad with a hair dryer and rub your thumb over the normal button to unstick it. Let the touchpad cool down and then re-apply power. If it still acts up after this, replace the entire touch control panel. Below is a link to the part.

Hello again. I'm just following up because I haven't heard back from you and I see this question is still open and unrated. Is there anything else I can help you with?
