    Same thing with me. Maytag MDB6100 just started all the lights flashing when the door is closed. So I've kept the door open, til I figure this out. No mention in the manual about this.

    same problem, I was told to unplug the unit and let rest for a few minutes and when you plug it back in it is supposed to reset the electrical. No success with that!



    good luck, I'm still looking for solution!

    I has the same problem, numerous times. A few times the problem corrected itself after a few days. I've turned the power off with hopes that the unit would reset but that didn't work. I think this is a problem with the keypad which in my experience can cost as much as half the cost of a new dishwasher if not the full price of a new dishwasher Iif you are having a repair to do the job for you).

    my problem isn't that all the leds are flashing. it's that the "clean" and "rinse only" leds flash at the same time and the unit doesn't run. I"ve tried shutting off the power at the main breaker as well as the plug to get it to reset, no luck. The drain pan is full of water and won't drain.
    It appears as if there are alot of people with the same type of problems. Any recalls on this?

When doing some floor work, I had taken off the front bottom panel of the dishwasher and there was a pamphlet which had electronic information. Dummy me threw it away, but I remember it had code information on it. I am now having this flashing light problem. So check behind the front bottom panel (remove the 4 screws to get behind it) and the piece of paper should be in there. Please let me know if you find it!

I did some searching online and found this simple solution which worked like a charm for me.
After having the power off to your dishwasher, to turn it back on, if the lights are still flashing press the off button. This stopped the flashing lights and I was able to use the dishwasher again.

Whirlpool dishwasher normal and pots/pan lights flashing

My whirlpool dishwasher gold GU2475XTVQ0 had rapid blinking lights that started with the "4 Hour Delay" LED and changed to others when other buttons were pressed. The machine would not run. I followed the instructions located behind the kick panel and verified the keypad was the issue and not the control circuit by elimination.
The big surprise for me was that when I used a straight pin to resistance check all of the buttons, they checked out OK. I reconnected the 14 pin connector (P1) to the control and found that the buttons/LEDs were behaving correctly! I believe that pushing the straight pin into the 14 pin connector removed any corrosion in the 10 year old device and permitted the keypad to communicate with the control again.
I reassembled the dishwasher door and it ran with no problems. I was ready to replace the keypad for $150, but didn't have to!

Whirlpool quiet partners II normal light flashing

CHECKING KEYPAD OPERATION
A rapidly blinking LED over one of the keys of the keypad (or sometimes a "dead" keypad/console)
To determine if the control or keypad is faulty, do the following test:
1. Unplug dishwasher or disconnect power.
2. Open the dishwasher door.
3. Open console and disconnect the keypad ribbon connection from the control (at P1).
Make sure all other connections are made.
4. Put console back together. Do not close the dishwasher door.
5. Plug in dishwasher or reconnect power.
6. Wait 5 seconds.
7. Close dishwasher door.
8. Monitor the control's response:
If the control is OK (no longer sees shorts with the keypad unplugged),
it will respond by turning on a Drain Motor for 2 minutes.
Check and/or replace the keypad if the control responds OK.
If the control is not OK (still sees shorts with the keypad unplugged),
then the drain motor will NOT respond and will remain off.
If no response, replace the control.

Normal wash light continually flashing

There is a trouble shooting document behind the kick panel at the bottom of the machine. Follow the steps to determine which component is at fault. It may be corrosion in the low voltage connector.

Light keeps flashing in spa

Sounds like control panel failure or the keypad is locked/stuck.

Try hold temperature UP & DOWN together for 6 seconds.
or if you have a Balboa 7 button controls, both buttons to the left of the display screen & down temperature.

As your lights are flashing the button might be stuck in the down position.

Maytag dishwasher mdb7100aws is flashing clean-lightwash-heated dry

I have a Maytag MDB7100AWS which suddenly started blinking the following LEDs: Clean, Rinse Only, Regular Wash, Tough Scrub and Heated dry. Tried cycling the breaker, no help. Tried the key sequences in the troubleshooting sheet behind the kick panel, no help. Then happened to press the Drain/Off button twice. All LEDs went out and am now on my second successful load, fingers crossed. Suspect the control board got latched up somehow.

One flashing red light on xbox360 ( not red ring)

The specific type of hardware failure can be determined by a "hidden" error code
Turn the xbox 360 on, and wait till the 3 red lights are flashing.
Press and hold the sync up button (the small white one), while holding that button press the eject button.
The LEDs will now blink the first number in the code (as described below).
Release the eject button and press it again.
The LEDs will now blink the second number of the code.
Release the eject button and press it again.
The LEDs will now blink the third number of the code.
Release the eject button and press it again.
The LEDs will now blink the forth number of the code.
Release the eject button and press it again.
The LEDs will go back to the 3 red flashing lights.
You should be able to determine the difference between the 3 flashing lights and the error code lights by the rate in which they flash.
Here is how you interpret the LEDs to get the code number:
All four lights flashing - 0
One light flashing - 1
Two Lights flashing - 2
Three lights flashing - 3

Once you get this code, go to: http://forums.xbox-scene.com/index.php?showtopic=484726
To get the reason for the code.

Cancel Light Flashing on Kitchen Aid Dishwasher

I ran into this same problem. Cutting the power didnt reset it.

After power reset, mine had the normal led blinking. If I pressed cancel, then the cancel and china button leds would start blinking too.

I pulled out the trouble shooting guide (from behind the baseboard kick panel under the dishwasher door). It that if the dishwasher wont run and button LEDs are blinking there is a short circuit in the keypad. It gave a keypad diagnostic sequence which I followed. (disconnect keypad and try to initiate the diagnostic cycle without the keypad by disconecting the yellow leads to OWI sensor twice in less than 6 seconds.

I could hear the diagnostic cycle start, so the problem is a bad keypad. Will order a new one tomorrow and let you know if it works.

Sony PVW-2600 Flashing lights on control panel

If this control panel has the hard brown plastic LED holders, that could be the problem. They can absorb moisture from the atmosphere, corrode the LED leads, and deposit a conductive goop (that's a technical term) on the PCB, screwing up the lamp logic. Replace all the holders- Sony only sells a new, improved version- and any LEDs with corroded leads. Clean the PCB thoroughly with alcohol to get rid of all the goop, and you should be fine.
