Press Start to wake up the control panel.

■ Press any 3 keys in the sequence 1-2-3-1-2-3- 1-2-3 with no more than 1 second between key presses

All of the lights will come on, let it go for about 1 minute after and then press cancel. That should reset the panel.

If this does not work does it mean that the panel needs to be replaced?

It depends on what the dishwasher is doing. What exactly are you seeing happen with your machine?
