Hello All, our 2006 Kenmore Elite dishwasher is acting up. Out of the blue the Smart Wash button on the far left is blinking rapidly. If I push any other button the Normal Wash light starts blinking also. Then if i push Cancel it starts blinking. And if i push Cancel again the Delay Hours #2 light joins in also. It almost looks like an emergency vehicle in our kitchen lol. If I turn off breaker for a few and back on it is just the far left Normal wash light blinking again. I've been trying to troubleshoot this ole girl most of the day and hoping to find some guidance here. Thanks

Blinking keys indicate a short in the control panel touchpad assembly, seen this many times on my service calls.

Unfortunately, the control panel touchpad assembly is No Longer Available for your model:

Time to go new dishwasher shopping.:)

We recommend Maytag, Whirlpool, and KitchenAid and Amana dishwashers.

Thanks Jake, Wife and I were checking prices of possible offending parts and decided to take the plunge for a new unit. We'll definitely lean toward the units you recommended. Great forum!
