After I reset the dishwasher it starts to work fine and after 1/2 hour it stops and the normal light starts blinking

Your touch panel is likely experiencing a failure. You may need to replace the control panel but there is a trick you can try first. Turn off the power to the appliance. Use a hair dryer to heat the panel up until very warm while rubbing firmly over each of the buttons. Often times, this will restore operation. Be sure to get the panel very warm but not hot enough to damage the plastic. If this does not work, the panel will need to be replaced. Let me know what happens and I can get you the correct part information.

You bet, thank you! The heat and rubbing helps to dissipate and evaporate the moisture in the keypads that is causing the trouble.
