My Kitchen Aid dishwasher light panel suddenly began blinking - the "normal, light china, cancel" and "resume or start" lights. We tried turning off the power to reset the panel, but this has not worked. It is a KUDR02FS MODEL.

Hi,Welcome to Just Answer, My name is ***** ***** forward to helping you today.

have you tried a board reset on this ?

press "Heated dry, high temp wash, heated dry, high temp wash, heated dry, high temp wash" All the lights will flash at which point you can press cancel to reset the board.
if you don't have a heated dry button try, air dry or energy saver dry

let me know if it resets. thanks Bryan

Bryan - Thanks for the quick response. I don't have a high temp wash.

This is the panel

Cycles: Heavy Duty, Normal, Light/China, Quick Clean-up, Rinse Only

Options: Pro Scrub, Hi-Temp Scrub, Sani-Rinse, Heat Dry, 4-hr Delay

What should I press? Thanks - Janie

Appliance Technician: Bryan, Home Appliance Technician replied 5 years ago
okay try the heat dry button.and high temp scrub, in the meantime I'm pulling up your tech sheets, there are a few more letters after the s at the end of your model # like BL1 or something like that can you get that to me?

The reset didn't work.

This long number is ***** the Model Number:

W10055890

Will this number help? janie

Appliance Technician: Bryan, Home Appliance Technician replied 5 years ago
okay, are the lights blinking slowly or fast ?
Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 5 years ago

The Normal and Light China lights alternate very quickly.

The Cancel blinks twice and then the Start blinks once alternating. So the Cancel is quicker than the Start light.

Appliance Technician: Bryan, Home Appliance Technician replied 5 years ago

its a keypad issue.

PROBLEM: WON'T RUN AND LED ABOVE KEY(S) IS

FLASHING RAPIDLY

Short circuit(s) in keypad or in

control's input lines that read

the keys.

you would need to order and replace the keypad. is your on the top of the door or front? also what color is it ?

It is on the top edge (out of sight when the door closes). The d/w is stainless. The key pad is also stainless with black printing.

Brian - we installed the new key pad last night. All the lights went off. However, when I push the "start/resume" button, it is solid green for a few seconds, and then it starts blinking as if I have interrupted a cycle by opening the door.

The light will blink if the door is open or if I close the door. When I press cancel, the entire panel lights are off, as they should be. I just can't get the D/W to start a wash cycle since the start button begins blinking.

I did do the reset, alternating heat dry and hi temp scrub. But even after resetting, the same thing happens.

Appliance Technician: Bryan, Home Appliance Technician replied 5 years ago
can you open the door panel and test the door interlock switches? you need to test the for continuity. heres a video on how to test continuity. http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Interlock-Switch/8269209/830947?modelNumber=KUDR02FSBL1
