Hello :

First I'll show you how to diagnose Dishwasher problems :

  1. \015\012\015\012\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\015\012\015\012\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\015\012\015\012\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\011First check the manual to see if the machine has a specific \015\012troubleshooting guide.

  3. \015\012\015\012\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\015\012\015\012\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\015\012\015\012\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\011Note all sounds or other symptoms the dishwasher shows.

  5. \015\012\015\012\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\015\012\015\012\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\015\012\015\012\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\011Look for some of the more common problems. This includes \015\012water temperature deviations, poor washing, failed motor, overflows or \015\012leaks or door-latch problems, among others. Anything that can't be dealt\015\012 with through your troubleshooting guide needs the use of a \015\012professional. Check for obvious causes, like blockage in any area or \015\012extremely dirty situations affecting water flow.
\015\012\015\012\011\011\011\015\012\015\012\011\011\011\015\012\015\012\011\011\015\012\015\012\011\011\015\012\015\012\015\012\011\011\011jQuery('.article ol .image').each(function(i,e){\015\012\015\012\011\011\011\011var $this = jQuery(this);\015\012\015\012\011\015\012\015\012\011\011\011\011$this.find('img').error(function(){\015\012\015\012\011\011\011\011\011jQuery(this).remove();\015\012\015\012\011\011\011\011\011$this.remove();\015\012\015\012\011\011\011\011});\015\012\015\012\011\011\011});\015\012\015\012\011\011\015\012\015\012\011\011\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012\011\011\015\012\015\012\011\011\015\012\015\012\011\011\011Then here I'll give you standard Dishwasher maintenance instructions :

  1. \015\012\015\012\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\015\012\015\012\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\011Perform some basic troubleshooting--the problem with the \015\012dishwasher may have nothing to do with its innards. Check the outlet to \015\012make sure it is receiving power, make sure the water supply is clear, \015\012and check during a cycle to see that the water is hot enough. Pay close \015\012attention to the door latch too. Most dishwashers won't work unless the \015\012door is securely closed.
  2. \015\012
  3. \015\012\015\012\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\015\012\015\012\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\015\012\015\012\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\011Unplug the dishwasher and shut off the water supply. You \015\012don't want either water or electricity running through it while you are \015\012tinkering.
  4. \015\012
  5. \015\012\015\012\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\015\012\015\012\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\015\012\015\012\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\011Remove the retaining screws on the control panel of the door,\015\012 which will give you access to the dishwasher's inner components. They \015\012are usually hidden by plastic molding, which can be pried off safely \015\012with a screwdriver. In some cases, you'll have to take the entire door \015\012panel off instead of just the control panel.
  6. \015\012
  7. \015\012\015\012\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\015\012\015\012\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\015\012\015\012\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\011Check the door gasket. This is likely the culprit if the \015\012dishwasher is leaking. When gaskets wear out, they tend to harden and \015\012crack, which creates an imperfect seal. If the gasket isn't in need of \015\012replacement, check to make sure it forms a tight seal with the door. You\015\012 may need to tighten or loosen the retaining bolts to refit it.
  8. \015\012
  9. \015\012\015\012\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\015\012\015\012\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\015\012\015\012\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\011Check the latch to make sure the door can close securely. It \015\012may have loosened or moved out of alignment, in which case you can \015\012adjust it with a screwdriver by tightening or loosening the bolts.
  10. \015\012
  11. \015\012\015\012\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\015\012\015\012\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\015\012\015\012\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\011Take off the panel that covers the door switch and remove one\015\012 of the lead wires. Connect it to a VOM set to the RX1 scale, then close\015\012 the door. If the VOM reads zero, the door switch is working. Otherwise,\015\012 it will need to be replaced. The door switch controls the timer and \015\012similar components: If it's broken, the dishwasher will not start.
  12. \015\012
  13. \015\012\015\012\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\015\012\015\012\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\015\012\015\012\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\011Remove the bottom rack and check the float switch. This keeps\015\012 the dishwasher from overflowing with water. You may need to dislodge it\015\012 or remove food particles that have caused it to become jammed. If it is\015\012 worn out, it will need to be replaced. Test it with a VOM as well. If \015\012the meter reads higher than zero, the switch is broken and you will need\015\012 a replacement.
  14. \015\012
  15. \015\012\015\012\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\015\012\015\012\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\015\012\015\012\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\011Test the dishwasher timer with a VOM. Again, if it reads \015\012higher than zero, then it needs replacing.
  16. \015\012
  17. \015\012\015\012\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\015\012\015\012\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\015\012\015\012\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\011Check the inlet valve for any damage or obstruction. The \015\012screens may be clogged with minerals, in which case they can be removed \015\012and rinsed out. A worn-out valve can be removed by unscrewing it from \015\012the mounting bracket and replacing it with a new one. If the valve is \015\012controlled by a solenoid, disconnect a wire and connect it to the VOM. \015\012In this case, the meter should read anywhere from 100 to 1000 ohms. If \015\012the reading is any higher, you should replace the solenoid.
  18. \015\012
  19. \015\012\015\012\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\015\012\015\012\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\015\012\015\012\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\011Check the heater with a VOM. It should rank between 15 and 30\015\012 ohms. If it doesn't, then disconnect the leads from the terminal screws\015\012 and unscrew the remainder of the heater from its housing. You can then \015\012remove it through the tub and replace it with a new heater.

Clean them \015\012thoroughly with water before replacing them.

Once \015\012you've unscrewed the central bolt, you should be able to remove the \015\012components one at a time.

Hi, since the lights are blinking, then it is definitely not a power related or fuse problem, rather the problem is coming from the control panel board. This maybe as a result of partial contact and it can be fixed by servicing the control panel board. All you need to do is to call in a technician to service it for you for a token fee...
