Control panel not functioning random starting and blinking lights

I think the console panel is faulty . i have no control when using the touch pad . for a while i was able to just press start and the dishwasher would start but i didn't have control over any wash cycles. now all the llights are flashing except the washing and it radomly starts and shuts off . I have a PLDB998ACO dishwasher and the serial # TH13848182. Can parts on the console be replaced and how to go about to test individual components.or do i need to replace the entire console ?

First thing to try is cut the power off for about 1 min then restart if that fails remove the control panel by taking the torx screws at the top of the inner door panel then there is a mylar ribbion that connects to the control from the touch pad there is a lock that holds in in either take a fingernail as its tiny and pull it up or flip it foward remove the ribbion and clean it with a pencial eraser gently then replace it and try the unit if that doesnt fix it replace the control that it plugs into

Panosonic Microwave convection Model NN-8501V Touchpad appears dead


The unit has a fuse in the power board, but when the fuse is gone it does not even start up. If it starts it is not the fuse.

Look rather a problem with a faulty touchpad, or the magnetron that is not working and need to be changed.

Check also the door sensor.

We have a GE profile side by side stainless steel refrigerator. The control panel touch pad does not function.


The electronics behind the touchpad may have failed. You usually change the whole panel/pod as a single item - could be expensive and perhaps something else has failed, so it could be a waste. First check all connections to it are dry and not corroded. if they are OK Try to buy a used panel/pod on ebay, then change it

On kitchen aid dishwasher, control lock is blinking and preventing the use of any other execute buttons. Can't start a wash .


Which model KitchenAid dishwasher do you have? On some models, the Control Lock can be toggled on/off by holding the Energy Saver Dry touch pad for at least 4 seconds or until the Control Lock light turns on or off.

On another model, the touch pad to press and hold is the 4 Hour Delay button. (On that model, you press and hold for 3+ seconds.) There is often a very tiny label below or on the touchpad indicating which key controls the Control Lock.

If you haven't held the button for long enough, pressing the other touch pads will lead to the Control Lock light blinking 3 times if the Control Lock is active.

If the press and hold method still doesn't work after several attempts, then you may have a problem with the control panel. The dishwasher may need repair.

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with the model number so that I can check if a different touch pad key is the correct one for the Control Lock.

(the Control Lock feature keeps the dishwasher settings from being changed accidently or the unit started when it isn't needed. This can stop a child from resetting the dishwasher or the unit being started while you clean it.)

Sharp microwave 8888 is flashing and I cannot remove


see this steps and fix it. God bless you

Reset the clock. Press "Clock" and the correct time, using the number pads. Press "AM/PM" if applicable, and press "Start" or "Clock" to confirm.

  • 2 Press "Timer On/Off" to reset the timer if nothing on the touch pad will operate. Use the number pads to select a new timed amount, if desired, and press "Timer On/Off" to start. Press again to cancel.
  • 3 Press and hold "Clear/Off" for three seconds if the timer will not function or is blinking when you touch the pads. This will release the "Child Lock" feature. Make a new touch pad selection.
  • 4 Disconnect power to the microwave if following Steps 1 through 3 does not resolve the blinking timer. Wait a few minutes, and then restore power to reset the microwave.

  • However if the problem persist the display board
    main control board is faulty

    Maytag wall oven Model # MEW6530DDS control panel failing


    HI, unfortunately, it is not just dirt, this is a faulty touch pad that is combined with the control board. most touch pads are separate parts that are clipped in front of the circuit board but, in this case, the touch pad and control board are one piece. You will need to replace the entire control board in this case. the touch pad is faulty.

    Turn on ok. Press start and spin light blinking and beeping.


    Several problems were found
    1. the touch panel PCB board had tracks which were damaged by moisture and had it repaired for $50 (Aus); this affected the advance function on the washing machine.
    2. Controller motor was replaced with a rebuilt one (since the touch panel kept on shutting down).
    3. Make sure that the wire holding the harness reed switch is tight (this I think controls the level in the washing machine).

    Re-Set the control panel


    if you are getting blinking lights on your console you may want to open up the door and visually look inside of the middle portion of your console and you'll observe an opening. this opening is where the latch and strike comes together to enaged power to the power board. you can take a butter knife and press the latch hooks downward. when you press the latch hooks(located on the latch then look at the front side of your console panel (at the same while holding the butter knife inside the latch keeping the latch hooks press down, press a wash cycle (normal, rinse, potspans, etc) and see if there is any more flashing. If not, then there is a bad connection with the latch.

    The normal light on my Whirlpool DU1101XTPQ7 is blinking. Service company installed a new circuit board but this did not solve the problem. Now they are saying it's the control panel (after the third visit...


    A blinking indicator light means the thouch key that geos with that light is stuck. So yes you need a control panel since the touch pad assembly is installed on it at the factory. I would have them put your old control board in with the new touch pad. It should work but sometimes they both go out.

    Jenn-air jes9800AAB keeps buzzzing, front function panel flashes on and off


    Your control panel is getting ready to quit. Mine did the same thing, I ignored it and now nothing on the touch panel works. About $150.00 for the part.
