kitchenaide dishwaser kuds03ftwhs start/resume

you guys were so wounderful and quick last time, let's see if we can do this again.

When I press the start button, the start, normal wash, and the heated dry lights illuminate. when I close the door the start/resume light starts flashing slowly.

Thanks again,

Stefan

Sensei Chat in FL offers the following:

 

Is it "Blinking Slowly" or "Flashing Rapidly?"

PROBLEM: Won’t Run and LED for Start/Resume Key is Blinking Slowly

Door switch not making contact:
1. Faulty or sloppy door latch assembly (which can be aggravated by high door closure force).
2. Faulty door switch (high resistance).
3. Faulty control does not detect door closed.

PROBLEM: Won’t Run and LED Above Key(s) is Flashing Rapidly

Short circuit(s) in keypad or in control’s input lines that read the keys (ribbon).

Thank you, it's blinking slow, I had a feeling it was the switch just didn't want to take the door apart again. I will bypass it and see if it fixes it

again thank you

Also check that the control lock hasn't inadvertently been engaged. Try unlocking it by holding the lock key ~3 seconds. I have found that the unit will sometimes lock without the LED illuminating....

Thank you all so much. I found the one of the wires to the door switch disconnected.
