I cannot get my KitchenAid dishwasher to start. The blue light

Resolved Question:

I cannot get my KitchenAid dishwasher to start. The blue light flashes on Start/Resume. When I press the resume light and shut the dishwasher door, nothing happens. I have checked all the fuses in the utility room and none have been tripped. I have also pressed the button heat/dry and held for 4 seconds and still nothing happens. Can you please help?

Hi my name isXXXXX will be assisting you with this problem.

No, the start/resume light continuously flashes.

Ok this is a error code that is telling you one of the buttons on the touch pad has shorted. To fix this try hitting the buttons in order to unstick the effected button. You can also try shutting the power off for 30 seconds. If this fails to work the control panel will need to be replaced since the touch pad is not available separately.

If you have any questions please feel free to ask. If you have no further questions please don't forget to hit the accept button since this is how I get paid for my time and effort. Thanks.

I tried pressing the buttons and I also tried turning off the power for 30 seconds and the dishwasher still does not work. Who do I contact to repair the touch pad?
