exactly the same problem today with an AD9520
Don't know the cause but from reading other posts re dishwasher problems I tried holding start but on for 5 - 10 seconds and it seemed to clear the symptoms at least. It ran for a short while and stopped but the flashing had stopped and I could start a wash cycle which is now running!

I think I have the answer.
On Yahoo Answers Blue Rizla Girl put up the idea that the sensor is some form of hydrometer. (i.e. floats in salty water sinks if not salty enough)
Based on this thought I postulated that the sensor is some form of hydrometer float in a tube with perhaps an optical sensor.
If this is correct why is it not working?
Is it because the float is stuck at the bottom of the tube, perhaps by some food debris? If so how can we fix it?
This is what I did on my Hotpoint FWD60:-
I took the salt filler cap off. There was no salt in the reservoir as it has been a problem for months, and I was only refilling it when dishes were not coming clean.
I poured 2 litres of hot water into the salt reservoir.
I then put the empty machine on the intensive 65 degree wash, half load and with the reservoir cap still OFF.
When finished I filled up with salt and HEY PRESTO the salt light is OFF!!!!
Just hope it stays that way until the reservoir really needs refilling.
While I was down on my hands and knees I took the opportunity to clean the filters in the sump. They do get full of bits!
I also flushed the sump by dashing a couple of cups of hot water into it and then bailing it out with a small yoghurt pot. I repeated this until the water in the yoghurt pot and the sump no longer had any signs of bits in them. (Dashing = vigorously pour)
I was amazed at how many bits I got out, especially considering I had given the machine a good clean in the past 6 weeks.
I even got part of a paper label!
So there we have it, try it out and report back.

Tips for a great answer:
Good Morning friend, thanks for your post!
Based off the information you have provided your Frigidaire dishwasher is not starting properly. I would recommend performing a reset on your dishwasher and you can do that by flipping the household circuit breaker off for ten minutes. If you continue to experience this issue it could mean that your control panel or keypad need to be replaced and I would recommend reaching out to a professional technician for proper diagnosis. Hope this helps. -Matt

Thank you for your post, friend!
From what you are describing it sounds like a possible issue with your keypad or control panel. I would recommend performing a power reset on your appliance which you can do by unplugging the power cord or flipping the household circuit breaker off for roughly ten minutes.
If that does not help correct the issue I would suggest seeking assistance from a professional to come out and properly diagnosis your appliance to avoid any unnecessary part purchases. -Matt
