I ran into this same problem. Cutting the power didnt reset it.
After power reset, mine had the normal led blinking. If I pressed cancel, then the cancel and china button leds would start blinking too.
I pulled out the trouble shooting guide (from behind the baseboard kick panel under the dishwasher door). It that if the dishwasher wont run and button LEDs are blinking there is a short circuit in the keypad. It gave a keypad diagnostic sequence which I followed. (disconnect keypad and try to initiate the diagnostic cycle without the keypad by disconecting the yellow leads to OWI sensor twice in less than 6 seconds.
I could hear the diagnostic cycle start, so the problem is a bad keypad. Will order a new one tomorrow and let you know if it works.

Please press the following sequence to reset the washer "Heated dry" "Normal" Heated Dry" "Normal". This will reset the machine. Also try and locate the tech sheet in lower kickplate.
Please do accept this solution and revert for further assistance.

Same problem and I was about to call for service. Opened the dishwasher to get the model number and noticed a sticker stating to hold down the Heated Dry button for 5 seconds to clear the lock light. Worked for me!

I have the same problem. I have tried turning off the breaker and the door seems to be locking, but still won't work. Any other suggestions?

Have Whirlpool GU1500XTLT1 with exact same symptoms, even tried power off but the lights resumed blinking when powered back up. Used solution from "kent168" of 17 Nov 2010 for similar GU1500XTLS1 with a different problem, and IT WORKED: "Reset the machine: press control buttons in this sequence: sani rinse, air dry, sani rinse, air dry, clear."
