My dishwashers touchpad was acting up - started with different lights flashing with no apparent consistency or pattern, and after pushing the buttons at random, it would clear. Well, now the Normal and Cancel lights are continually blinking fast. Powered off and on - no change. I followed your instructions to another persons similar question, and disconnected the ribbon cable, and then restored power. Nothing happened. I cannot find the thermistor/owi to disconnect/reconnect. I know it's installed into the sump, and it is supposed to have yellow wires running to it. Is it on the back side of the unit? I don't want to pull the unit out of the cabinet unless absolutely necessary (but will if needed). Does it sound like the touchpad to you or should I pull out the unit and disconnect/reconnect the thermistor/owi? Thank you.

Fred for Model Number KUDS02FRSS1

ANSWER Fred, The clean and cancel lights flashing means that you have a stuck keypad that would need to be replaced. On the thermistor when doing check you would disconnect the OWI thermistor at the control board and not at the sensor itself.
