If the problem is that only one button (normal cycle) works when you press it and none of the others do, then you have most likely a bad keypad, but possibly a bad circuit board. It's difficult to say without knowing which model of dishwasher you have.

The repair is not really that difficult, but you should probably order both from someplace with a good return policy, then change the keypad first and see if that works. If it works, return the circuit board. If it doesn't work, put the new circuit board in.

The button lights up as normal, but nothing starts. After a while, several lights start blinking. New main board needed?


Need make and model number. It may start up if you cut the power, say five minutes. Some have reset functions where you have to hold a couple of buttons down together for a short period of time. These vary. There may be a service manual under the toe kick which will explain the blinking lights and reset procedure, or what other error is happening.

Touchpad and Control Panel

If the buttons don't work on the control panel the entire touchpad and control panel assembly may need to be replaced. If the display works but the dishwasher functions are all out of synch, or some of the buttons don't respond properly the entire touchpad and control panel might need to be replaced.

Touchpad

If the buttons don't work on the control panel, the dishwasher touchpad might be at fault. Generally speaking, if the dishwasher display is working and some of the buttons respond correctly but some don't, the problem is with the touchpad.





Main Control Board

The dishwasher has a main control board which regulates nearly every function in the dishwasher. If the control panel buttons don't work, and other causes have been ruled out, the main control board might need to be replaced.

Normal wash cycle will not work. After I used the rinse cycle on day, I went back to the normal cycle and the lights wouldn't light up. Every other cycle will still run except this one.


Could be tricky to find this one.

You need to deduce what is used in the main cycle that is not used in the others,
Whatever is used is likely to need testing or replacing.
If there is nothing else wrong (heater, pumps, thermostats) then the only thing to try is a new control board.

Dishwasher stopped working. Suspect electronics issue.


An expert from another site says it's a faulty control panel and may need new actuators.

Sounds like you have a control panel and/or control board issue. Normally when operator functions fail or "halfway" work the main control board, associated keypad, or wiring are the likely suspect. Now...another remote possibility could be the door latch not closing properly. However, this would affect ALL functions. I hope this helps you.
