Dishwasher won't reset - it's cycling through the "delay"

Customer Question

dishwasher won't reset - it's cycling through the "delay" options (1 hr, 2 hr, 3 hr etc) but the reset button won't do anything, and we can't get the normal cycle to start. Help!

If it's cycling through the delay options, it means you have a stuck button. This isn't something you can just reset most of the time, you'll need to order and replace the touch control panel most likely. You can try to flip the circuit breaker off and heat up the touchpad with a hair dryer and rub the delay button with your thumb to see if you can un-stick it. If it doesn't work, you'll need to order and replace the touchpad to fix the issue.
