The "Normal" light is flashing continuously on my KitchenAid

Customer Question

The "Normal" light is flashing continuously on my KitchenAid dishwasher and it won't start. I have tried turning off the power for 60 sec to reboot, still flashing.

The normal light flashing is a very straight forward error for these KitchenAid dishwashers. It means that the normal button is shorted or held for more than 17 seconds. Try to unplug the dishwasher and heat up the touchpad with a hair dryer. Then rub your thumb over the normal button to try to unstick it. Allow it to cool and then re-apply power. Now if it still acts up there is nothing else you can do but replace the entire touch control panel I'm sorry to say.
