Hi
I have a KitchenAid KDTE104ESS1 the tough light and the heat dry light are on and the start light, add dish and washing light are blinking. left it unplugged over night and still doing the same thing this morning, and the control panel dose not change when pushing buttons on it.

Thanks

Usually that's a short in the control panel keypad assembly when that happens.

To verify that, 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, it will respond by turning on the drain motor for 2 minutes. Replace control panel keypad.
B. If control board is not OK, 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 keypad assembly for your model:

Thank you Jake

Just got done pulling the dishwasher door a part and it looks like its the control panel. I unplugged the control panel and turned the dishwasher on and the drain pump came ran for two min. Then I pugged the control panel back in and turned the dishwasher back on and nothing happened. So it sounds like its the control panel. Thanks for the help and a link for the part.
