woke up this morning to find solid red lights. Add dish and drying. I cannot find what this means. I ran the diagnostic mode (123, 123, 123, 123) got a flashing red light on Cleaning (8 and 1) it ran thru a quick cycle and but the solid red lights are still on. Can some one please explain what they mean.

Hi,

It sounds like possibly a short or stuck keys in your control panel console keypad assembly.

Do this below:
- Unplug dishwasher or disconnect power.
- Disassemble door and disconnect keypad connection from control board or LCD display module.
- Verify all other connections to control board are made.
- Reassemble door, but do not close door.
- Plug in dishwasher or reconnect power.
- Wait at least 7 seconds for control board to power up completely.
- Close dishwasher door and monitor control board response:
A. If control board is OK (no longer sees stuck keys with keypad unplugged), it will respond by turning on the drain motor for 2 minutes. Replace keypad and console.
B. If control board is not OK (still sees stuck keys with keypad unplugged), it will not turn on drain motor. Wait for at least 10 seconds. If there is still no drain response, then replace control board or LCD display module (whichever one the keypad was connected to).

Here's the control panel console keypad assembly for your model:
WPW10500168 Console


Let us know what happens.
