Thanks for using FixYa. If the clean light flashes, pauses, and then repeats. When the dishwasher doesn't sense a water temperature increase, it stops working and locks the functions (clean light flashes, 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...

On my unit, I had the same problem (child lock LED on, or flashing.The cancel process of pushing anything was not possible, as a bad/stuck switch prevented any input from the control panel buttons.
The underlying cause of the problem turned out to be a faulty switch associated with the "Light China" button. I determined this by removing the control panel from the door and using a digital multimeter with OHMS and DIODE settings, was able to check each individual push-button switch using the following table to check the 12 switches (applies to the KUDC25CHSS1 model).
There are 2 ribbon cables, it is the larger of the two cables you need to check. Pin 1 is noted on the ribbon. You can use 2 normal sized paper clips to insert into the ribbon cable and make your connections. (My Ohm meter has aligator clips on its leads which helps a lot...maybe another set of hands would help if you don't have these kind of leads).
-Using OHMS: the reading should be infinite (open circuit, so no reading/no connection inside the switch) when not pushing the button, otherwise you will receive a reading when you push the switch.
-Using DIODE/beep: Ensure polarity is followed in the table below. When connected, pushing the associated button will cause a beep to occur, otherwise there will be no beep and no reading.

Rinse Only Sw 13 2

Energy Save Dry 13 5
Cancel 12 5
Start 11 5
Soak & Scrub 12 6
Super Scrub 11 6
Short Wash 12 4
Sani Rinse 11 3
All my switches checked out OK, except for the "Light China" switch. On the OHMS settings I was never able to measure an open circuit for that switch, which means the switch was always closed. or connected.
I noticed that "Light China" was pin 2 and "Rinse only" also used pin 2, which happen to be cycles I never use. With power turned off, I carefully removed some of the plastic surround of the matching connector on the Control Board right next to it's associated Pin 2 all the way to the bottom. Then I carefully bent over pin 2 as close to the connector base as possible. Making sure all the remaining pins were straight, I plugged on the control panel ribbon cables and all is well again.
Prior to trying this I was resolved that I needed to buy a new dishwasher because I wasn't going to pay over $350 for a new control panel. Instead, I eliminated 2 unused cycles at no cost, and maybe I can get some more use out of this dishwasher.
