Good morning. My name is ***** ***** I'll be assisting you with your dishwasher today. Unfortunately this issue can't just be reset. The normal light blinking means that your dishwasher thinks the normal button is stuck or shorted. Try to flip the breaker off to the dishwasher or unplug the dishwasher. Then heat up the touchpad with a hair dryer and rub your thumb over the button. Let the touchpad cool and then re-apply power. If it still acts up, the entire touch control panel would need to be ordered and replaced and the part is usually about $130 or so.

We are on the honor system here. Please remember to rate my service by selecting a star at the top of the screen before you leave today and reply back here letting me know with a rating of 1-5 stars (5 being the best). If you need anything else, just let me know. You can continue asking follow-up questions at no additional charge after rating my service if you still need assistance.

I'm not sure what you mean. You couldn't have possibly replaced the touchpad which is what I stated you will likely need to do to fix the problem. Trying to heat up the touchpad is just something to try and sometimes it works and you can avoid replacing the touchpad, but as I said when I first responded---"this issue can't just be reset". The touchpad has failed and need to be replaced.
