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.

If the clean light flashes 7 times, pauses then repeats...
If the dishwasher doesn't sense a water temperature increase, it will stop working and lock the functions (clean light flashes 7 times, all buttons are non responsive).
To resolve this you will have to reset the console. Do this by closing the door and press these buttons in sequence...
-high temp wash
-high temp wash
...all the lights will turn on briefly and the machine will start a diagnostic cycle. You can press cancel or let the diagnostic cyle 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 (ie. 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).

I don't know about the control panel - I am having trouble with mine too, but in regard to the soap dispenser -- don't use it anymore. Just buy those little tablets. That is what the secretary at the repair shop told me when I had a problem and that's been fine.

Testimonial: "THE SOAP TABLETS ARE A GOOD IDEA , BUT IT DOESN'T STOP THE DISPENSER BEING POWERED ON ALL THE TIME AND POSSIBILY OVERHEATING. SO STILL NEED A SOLUTION"
I have the same problem. This dishwasher sucks big-time! We paid to have the problem fixed in the past. I am considering replacing the damn thing.
