My guess is that the foil that the buttons are mounted to is defective. The control module "reads" the buttons that are pushed by the fact that the resistance between two pins on the circuitboard becomes zero ie. your pushing the button shorts out two pins. the foil could have moistire damage or the resiistance of the tracks could be too high. Solution for both would be to replace the control panel button foil.

just found a web site that says crack door open, press normal, hot dry, normal, hot dry, then cancel to reset the controls.

holding the button for four seconds will not do it, you have to hold it until the light stops blinking and
will go back to normal, normall takes more than four seconds to unlock the unit, this is something
the sears repair techs know becouse the are trained on all this things but, they will not share this things, becouse thats how they make money

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!

Thanks for using FixYa. If the clean light flashes, pauses, and then repeats. When the dishwasher doesn't sense a water temperature increase, it stops working and locks the functions (clean light flashes, all buttons are non responsive). It does this as a safety in case the element is broken and feeding electrical current into the water.
To resolve this you will have to reset the console. Do this by closing the door and press these buttons in sequence...
