Re: My dishwasher start light flashes and the timer display is blank.
That is a fault condition, if the display is blank it is probably a faulty control board.
Unplug the appliace from main, or trip circuit braker to cut power for ten minutes.
If display is still blank on startup, then replace the timer control assembly.

How to Purge Incorrect Liquid Detergent from the Bulk Dispenser
The purge routine operates the bulk dispenser pump continuously to drain the bulk dispenser tank when an incorrect liquid was poured in the tank. The process consists of setting up the dishwasher to run the purge mode, running the purge mode and then cleaning up the purged detergent.
Follow these steps carefully to have a successful purge run.
For Top Control Models:
2. Press Heated Dry and Cookware together for 3 seconds. All LEDs illuminate.
3. Press Added Heat and Cookware together for 3 seconds. The Anti-bacterial LED illuminates.

I had a similar problem with a GE GSD5811 model. The hoses were clear, and the auxiliary pump worked fine. It turns out that it was the "piston" assembly that had basically disintegrated over time. This part diverts water to the pump during the drain cycle.
To check it, remove the mesh filter at the rear of the inside of the machine, by carefully unclipping the heater element from the back of the machine and removing the 4 hex-head screws securing the filter panel.) Unscrew the piston assembly from the tub, and pull it out. If the sealing plunger has deteriorated or is jammed, replace it. The part number for the "piston and nut assembly" for my machine (and probably numerous others) is WD24X10018. It should cost anywhere between $10 and 16, depending on where you shop.
Another possibility is a bad drain solenoid. (This is what actually triggers the piston assembly during the drain cycles.)

I had the same problem and followed rstecher and his solution. Removed the kick, light flashing was saying a leak was detected. Tipped the DW on it's side, have plenty of towels ready because the pan will be filled with water. Make sure power is off. Removed the pan and every single one of the clamps was loose. Tightened all the clamps at least 4 complete turns. Dried everything so the sensor wouldn't pick up any water. Put the pan back on and it worked perfectly! Thanks rstecher!
