My Kitchen Aid dishwasher Model KUDS30IVBL4 won’t run. “Normal Wash” and “Cancel “ lights blinking constantly. Does this periodically and eventually stops and works again. Any ideas what is happening and how to fix?

Hi,

Yes, on these models when the LED's are blinking that usually indicates a short in the control panel keypad. You can do this test below to verify that.:)

A blinking LED over one of the keys of the keypad (or sometimes a “dead” keypad/console) indicates one or more key switch lines are stuck or shorted on the control board or the keypad.

To determine if the control board or keypad is faulty, do the following test:
Unplug dishwasher or disconnect power Open the dishwasher door. Open console and disconnect the keypad ribbon connection from the control (at P1). Make sure all other connections are made. Put console back together. Do not close the dishwasher door. Plug in dishwasher or reconnect power. Wait 5 seconds. Close dishwasher door. Monitor the control’s response.

➔If the control board board is OK (no longer sees shorts with the keypad unplugged), it will respond by turning on the drain motor for 2 minutes. Replace the keypad if the control board responds OK.

➔If the control board is not OK (still sees shorts with the keypad unplugged), then the drain motor will NOT respond. If drain motor does not start within 10 seconds, repeat or verify that all steps were followed, and then replace the control board.

Here's the control panel keypad assembly for your model you can order:
WPW10250015 Panel-Cntl


Let us know what you find.
