Why does my Kenmore 665.17033403 have a blinking normal wash light?

My Kenmore dishwasher will not run. The normal wash light and the cancel light are blinking.

There is no information in the tech sheet that covers a â€Ĺ“blinking Normal LED”. If any key or keys is blinking rapidly that is indicative of a short or stuck key in the console.

About 95% of the time something like this will require replacing the console/touchpad assembly. The only way to confirm the diagnosis is by testing the touchpad control with a meter or, replace it to see if that fixes the problem. If you decide to test the touchpad with a meter, I have included the testing information in the image provided below.

I have included a link to purchase the console/touchpad assembly.

Sears Parts Direct

On the page this link brings up, I have included this to help you pick your color.

The first one 8559874 is black.

The second 8558947 is white.

The third 8558948 is bisque.
