    Default blinking 'normal wash' light on 665.17363301

    model #: 665.17363301

    this morning the 'normal wash' light started blinking and the dishwasher will not respond. i've turned the power off and on and it returns to the blinking light. the only other button that does anything (though not consistently) is the 'cancel/drain' button that when pushed starts blinking as well.

    i've also tried holding down the 'cancel/drain' button and once it started making a disturbing draining noise, but there was no water in the tub.

    thanks.

    Hi,

    Any pattern to the blinking?

    the only pattern is a simple one. on-off continuously at a rate of ~1.5-2 blinks per second. there are no pauses or sequences unless it's a really long pattern and my patience wouldn't have me wait there for the 30 seconds-1 minute.

    thanks.

    A copy:

    PROBLEM: WON’T RUN AND LED ABOVE KEY(S) IS BLINKING

    Stuck key(s) or shorted circuit(s) in keypad.
    See Checking Keypad Operation, page 1.


    Shorted circuits or connections
    on the control
    that read the keys.
    1. Unplug dishwasher or disconnect power.
    2. Check/replace control.

    This here may help.
