during cycle dishwasher stopped and lights were blinking. i figured push cancel/drain to reset. machine started to drain then shut off and now cancel/drain light blinking. bad door switch? also, how old is this unit?
ANSWER Steve, You're just a little off target, a faulty door switch would distrupt power to the control and you'd have no lights and the unit would do nothing at all. You most likely have a fault in the control panel/key pad assembly 8051721 " If the control detects that a key is stuck in the depressed position, dishwasher operation will be suspended and the control will flash the light for that key until the condition is corrected. If a key without a light is stuck or multiple keys are stuck, the control will flash" You will also need to reset the control "HI TEMP WASH, AIR DRY, HI TEMP WASH, AIR DRY or POWER SCOUR, AIR DRY, POWER SCOUR, AIR DRY If the sequence is entered after starting a cycle, the Rapid Advance feature is turned on, which allows the operator to manually advance the currently running cycle, interval by interval, by pressing the Pots & Pans/Antibacteria or Heavy/Soak & Scrub key." and allow the diagnostic cycle to run the complete test mode. Thanks and Good Luck
