Hello. My name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you with your appliance question today. Please wait a few moments while I review your question.

The normal light flashing is an error code which means the dishwasher thinks the normal light was held or shorted for longer than 17 seconds. Try to unplug the dishwasher and rub your thumb over the normal button. Re-apply power after 5 minutes and see if it still acts up. If so, your touch control panel needs to be replaced I'm sorry to say so below is a link to the part. The touchpad is all plug and play so if you're handy you can definitely replace it yourself.
