About 6 months ago, touch pad stopped working. I replaced the electronic control board and the console (with the touch pad). It worked until now, once again I replaced the control board but not the console (touch pad), but it is still not working. What can I check with multimeter to determine what causing this electrical problem? I've read some stuff about the thermal fuses, could that be the problem. The dishwasher is about 4 years old.

For Whirlpool (and associated brands), the F2 E1 error indicates a communication problem between the touch pad and the electronic control board. The oven's control thinks that the touch pad wiring is unplugged. This could be due to damaged wires, a loose wiring harness or a problem with the touch pad. First check that the wires aren't loose. Press Cancel to see if the signal is sent to the control board and clears the error. Wait 60 seconds for a response.
If the error persists, you need to replace the touch pad. On some models, you'll have to replace the touch pad and control board since they are sold as a single unit. For the units where the touch pad is a separate unit, you may still need to replace the control board. If the F2 E1 error persists after replacing the touch pad, then the control board is also faulty.
If you post a comment with the oven's make and model number, I may be able to give you the appropriate replacement part numbers. If your oven is still under warranty, contact the manufacturer for the repairs.
The F7 code means the same thing on all domestic (USA) brand ovens.What is means is that a button on the touch pad is shorted (welded together) out. Since you did not include brand or model# i will give you the following advice, if your touch pad is a seperate part that plugs in clock (also called the oven control,or eoc..electronic oven control) then just the touch pad can be replaced,on certain brands or even some models within a brand the touch pad is integrated into the clock/oven control or eoc in that case the complete touch pad/control asm. is what needs to be replaced
Hope this helps and if it does please give me a 4 thumbs up rating
F2-E0 - Shorted Touch Pad (Keypad) - Check the connection between the touch pad (keypad) and control board (clock) to make sure it is secure. Select the 'cancel' function and wait 60 seconds. If error code reappears then replace the touch pad, or touch pad and control board (clock) if all one assembly.

The F0 is a Function Key Stuck error - Replace touch pad or touch pad and control board if it is one assembly. Refer to F1 Test for more information.
How To Perform A F1 Touch Pad / ERC Test This test is easy to perform and will help you determine whether the Electronic Range Control (ERC, control board) or touch pad is defective when the F1 code is displayed. Note: With some models, the ERC and the touch pad are one single unit and therefore this test is not necessary. The entire assembly must be replaced. Warning: If you have any doubts in your ability or safety of the repair, please contact a qualified appliance repair technician. 1. Disconnect the power to the range by either unplugging the power cord, or turning the power off at the circuit breaker. Always make sure the power as been disconnected properly before beginning this test. 2. Access the control panel. 3. Disconnect the touch pad ribbon from the ERC. 4. Reassemble the control panel. Make sure to check for any additional defects such as frayed or lose wires that could be causing the problem. 5. Turn the power back on. 6. Wait up to an hour for the F1 code to reappear. This could be accompanied by an alert such as a beeping sound. 7. If the F1 code reappears, replace the ERC. If it does not, replace the touch pad.
Is it not coming on? If it isn't, is the control pad lighting up? Is any of the electronics lighting up? If not, then the control board is probably bad. You will need to check voltages to the control board.
If it stopped working after you dropped it, try this:
Hold the Zen in your hand, and with your thumb, press down on the face board as hard as you can. Use your other hand's finger to scroll up or down on the touch pad. Press down different areas of the face board until you find a spot that, when pressed, causes the touch pad to work. Then, using both of your thumbs, press that spot VERY hard until the touch pad works without pressing.
F2-E1 - Touch Pad (Keypad) Cable Unplugged - Check the connection between the touch pad (keypad) and control board (clock) to make sure it is secure. Select the 'cancel' function and wait 60 seconds. If error code reappears then replace the touch pad, or touch pad and control board (clock) if all one assembly.
It appears your timer/clock has failed in this instance.
For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing. I recommend both sites because ...
FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.
PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information. RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.
If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell. In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.
Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.
If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.
