Kitchenaid Dishwasher KUDS02FRSS1 normal and cancel lights flashing

My dishwasher, model KUDS02FRSS1 stopped working. Normal and Cancel lights are flashing. Tried restart (unplug-plug) 3 times. Tried diagnostics sequence buttons. No luck. The problem seems similar what is described in another post https://www.applianceblog.com/mainf...inking-normal-button-and-cancel-button.68897/ where Jake has suggested to replace Control Panel Keypad assembly.
But the part WP8574145 Control Panel seems to be discontinued and not available on 2 dozen websites I checked. Any suggestions?
* Substitute part will do
* Part with different style (black/white instead of my original stainless steel) with do.
* Are refurbished part available online a good idea?
* Any other ideas to diagnose the problem better?

* Whats the best quality new Dishwasher to buy? Any suggestions? https://www.costco.com/dishwashers.html?keyword=PresApp22&sortBy=item_ratings+desc

Yes, I've seen this problem many times, and the control panel is the fix, but when its No Longer Available, then its time to go dishwasher shopping.

We recommend Maytag, Whirlpool, KitchenAid, Amana, Jenn-Air.
