Question about Dishwashers
If you pop the lower panel off the dishwasher there is a quick fix sheet attached the back of the panel that will give you diagnostic codes.

If the clean light flashes 7 times, pauses, then repeats...
When the dishwasher doesn't sense a water temperature increase, it stops working and locks the functions (clean light flashes 7 times, all buttons are non responsive). It does this as a safety in case the element is broken and feeding electrical current into the water.
To resolve this you will have to reset the console. Do this by closing the door and press these buttons in sequence...
-high temp wash
-high temp wash
...all the lights will turn on briefly and the machine will start a diagnostic cycle. You can press cancel or let the diagnostic cyle finish (1-2 minutes).
You should now be able to run the dishwasher as normal.
If the issue returns, you could have a problem with the heating circuit (ie. element, thermostat or wiring).
It rarely happens but it could also be the door switch not engaging properly when the door is closed (slightly bend the door latch down making sure it doesn't hit the door when you close it).

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.

hELLO THERE AND THANKS FOR USING FIXYA
Yes this is certainly a problem when the door will not latch properly.
See the door needs to latch properly to allow the door latch solinoid to complete the circuit
Often times the latch just needs to be readjusted by removingthe panel inside the door and readjusting the latch this takes some doing and several tries at it to get it to latch right but once it does youshould find out that the machine should operate properly after this
However if it does not then you would want to probably replace the full latch assy ok please keep me posted on how this is going i can give you further instructions if needed
Best regards michael
