3sec,auto clean,drain/off,delay/resume,digital display,rinse only,light wash,normal wash,heavy wash,tuff scrub plus,sanitize,heated dry,extra rinse.
press these buttons in this order

normal wash - then - heated dry
normal wash - then - heated dry
normal wash - then - heated dry

if this does not reset the control board then you will have to replace the control board and if you do its part number 99002825R which cost about $99 and you can get it at a local appliance parts dealer near you

what is the normal life for this dishwasher? What is the reset going to do? Start a new cycle?
the normal life span is 10 to 12 years ,, it will go though all the cycles and stop, when it does then press cancel and start a cycle, if it goes though the entire cycle than it will be ok and if not then the board is bad
