SOURCE: Dishwasher Reset / Diagnostics
Unscrew and remove the kickplate at the very bottom of the dishwasher. The tech sheet with the diagnostic code should be attached to the back of it. If not, due a websearch and you should be able to find the info on yahoo or google.

Look at your manual, usually available on net for reading or downloading. Blink lights are often used to code out a problem with various combinations and repetition rates to indicate trouble code number for look-up in manual.

I was able to reset it using this procedure:
1. Crack the dook open
2. Within 3 seconds, press these buttons in this squence: Hi Temp Wash, Heated dry, Hi Temp Wash, Heated Dry
3. Close door
4. Press Cancel
That should clear the Blinking LED. It appears this is a common problem. The worst thing is they charge to come out for this.
