The cancel Light is blinking/won't run.

Unplug the machine for around 5 minutes and then retry, the program in the microcontroller sometimes gets corrupted by electric spikes or frequency from flourescent lights etc.

I have a SHU5305us/u12 and my front door lettering got erase. anyone have a picture or a manual that tells me what each button means.

Cycle Interruption

As a safety feature the dishwasher will automatically turn itself off whenever the door is opened. However, if the door is opened quickly while in a wash or rinse cycle some water may splash out of the dishwasher. For this reason it is recommended that the machine always be switched off before opening the door.

To Interrupt a Cycle

1. Press the on/off button to stop operation.

2. Wait at least 10 seconds (or until the water noises stop) before opening the door.

To Resume a Cycle

1. SHU/SHI models, close the door and press the on/off button.

2. SHV models, push the on/off button and close the door.

Changing a Cycle

For Bosch dishwasher models SHI 6800 and 4320, SHU 5300, 5310 and 6800 press the program button of the desired cycle TWICE. For all other Bosch dishwasher models, press the program button of the desired cycle ONCE. The chosen cycle button (or the light above it) becomes illuminated, showing that it has been selected.

* SHU 3030 and SHU 3130 models do not have program lights.

Cancelling a Cycle

Each control panel shows which buttons to simultaneously push to cancel a cycle. Refer to your dishwasher to find the cancel drain buttons on your particular model.

1. Press the indicated buttons at the same time and hold for approximately 3 seconds.

2. When the drain pump noises stop and the LED display or clean light indicate that the end of the cycle has been reached, the dish

washer is reset.

3. Press the on/off button to turn the dishwasher off.

4. The dishwasher is now ready to run a selected cycle. Add more detergent if necessary.

Kitchenaid kudp02crbl1 dishwasher. Normal light is constant blink. Cancel will also go into constant blink if pushed. No other response from other buttons. I've reseated all ribbon cables. Was hoping...


This means the touch pad sense a stuck or shorted key. Try pushing in all the keys to make sure there not stuck. If not, the touch pad needs to be replaced.

The screws around the door come out and the assembly will slide forward. All plug and play type connections and a few 1/4 screws. The repair is really straight forward. Good luck with your repair friend

Seems like you have a keyboard error as well.


The same is true for your diswasher - the main controller has failed, and requires replacement.

Try the following resets first...

If the light is constantly blinking vs blinking a set number of time and then starting over again it can indicate that one of the buttons are stuck. Which can cause the light to constantly flash. You may have to change out the control button.
If it's blinking a set number of times, try doing this keystroke sequence.
  • Crack the door open.
  • Within 3 seconds press the following sequence - Hi Temp Scrub - Air Dry - Hi Temp Scrub - Air Dry
  • Close and latch the door
  • Press the cancel button

  • One other sequence you can try would be
    sani rinse--air dry--sani rinse--air dry

    Otherwise, with the constant blinking of the light then you may have to change out the control panel.

    HOWEVER - before replacing the board - keep in mind there is a design flaw with this dishawasher - the vent is directly below the control panel, and you are likely to experience this again in the near future.

    it may be worth the investment of the repair cost toward a new washer - as the board is at LEAST $145 plus labor if you do not want to do yourself.

    If you are inclined to replace it yourself - please reply with the exact model #, and I can refer you to a parts source.

    Programming LX18H for TRUE FILL AND DRAIN

    The LX18 series was a compromise machine, the lack of a sump heater causes numerous rinse temperature problems due to it's increased water use (over the sump-heater equipped, fresh water rinse LX30 series).

    The LX18H can be reprogrammed for true fill and dump operation. If you still need to do this, please let me know via e-mail or post a reply, otherwise a won't post the long answer!
