Customer Question
I have a model #...
I have a model # ***** Sometimes it acts up and won't start (front lights blinking) So I have to unplug and it often resets. This time...that procedure doesn't help. The "Start" light/button is blinking and beeping and I can't get the unit to start.
Any thoughts? Is there a reset button somewhere? A secret way to "reboot" the dishwasher?

Unfortunately a constantly blinking light means that your touch control panel has an internal short. The touch control panel for this model has been completely re-designed because often times it fails or is affected by steam from the dishwasher. Below is a link to the new touch control pad you'd want to order and replace for your model. It's about $150 I'm sorry to say. You can try to let the unit sit for 24 hours and if steam is causing the issue it might start working again, but it will be a constant issue until you replace the part.
