Question about KitchenAid Dishwashers
I recommend unplugging the unit for a few hours. In the meantime of it being unplugged, press and hold start or power button for 5 full slow seconds, wait half hour more and see if it corrects the problem. Most likely it will. Otherwise if for some small chance it does not help, then I think hardware failure is possibility like bad control board. But I first would check drain & screen, and also the pump.

Thanks for using FixYa. To resolve this you will have to reset the console. Do this by closing the door and press these buttons in sequence...

All the lights will turn on briefly and the machine will start a diagnostic cycle. You can press cancel or let the diagnostic cycle 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 (i.e. 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).
Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

Open the door. Within 3 seconds press the following sequence --Try pressing normal wash, heated dry, normal wash, heated dry, normal wash, heated dry three times within 6 seconds and then press cancel to reset the dishwasher. If that doesn't help then try pressing Saini Rinse, Heated Dry, Saini Rinse, Heated Dry, Saini Rinse, Heated Dry or Saini Rinse, Air Dry, Saini Rinse, Air Dry,Saini Rinse, Air Dry 3 times in 6 seconds and then the Cancel Button. Close the door and press Cancel.
Blinking lights would stop and should be able to use your dishwasher normally. If the light is still blinking try and reset the power to the dishwasher and try again. If still the light is blinking then check for the connections on the keypad, it may be due to moisture or shorted connections on keypad.
Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.
