My dishwasher seems to run fine, but then stops mid cycle. Normal LEDs are blinking in no apparent pattern. Unit won't start again until a bit of time. Switches don't appear stuck. Seems to run again after I leave door open a bit ( maybe drying out compartment from moisture?)

Does it stop at the exact same place in the cycle (time into the cycle) every time or does it vary?

It stops at different points in the cycle. Lights then flash and I can't rerun. If I leave it sit it will start to run fine. I ran diagnostic cycle and seemed to go through all steps OK. I was thinking that water or moisture is getting in and causing the problem. Is this a known issue? If so, could it be the vent is stuck closed?

Condition: Dishwasher will stop in mid-cycle and will not advance. One or more of the cycle and option indicator lights on the console will start blinking.

Correction: Electroninc Control Part number, 8528172, has been modified and returned to stock. The electronic control is reacting to higher than normal line voltage (over 125 VAC) and higher than normal line signal distortion that exists in some parts of the country.

NOTE: If the voltage is normal and just a single indicator light is blinking, the cause is usually a stuck or shorted keypad on the active overly, not the control.

Yeah, I figured that moisture might be disrupting switch functions. If this is due to vent problem, then replacing the panel would only be a temp solution. How do I check for proper operation of vent?

Nothing about venting or moisture in the service bulletin that Master Chat posted for you. And the correction is not to replace the control panel but the control board.
