Tech sheet inside the door.  Light blinking usually sign of user interface problem.  I believe that you pull connection from user board to main control board & try to run.  If drain pump energizes user control is defective, if pump does not run it's main control.

CHECKING KEYPAD OPERATION
A rapidly blinking LED over one of the keys of the keypad (or sometimes a “dead” keypad/console)

indicates one or more key switch lines are stuck or shorted on either the control or the keypad.

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.

Thanks all. I am stuck at the disconnect the pins step. The ribbon looks to be soldered in and I can't get it or the circuit board to move. What can I do?

I can send photos if that helps.

It's not soldered, just takes some careful wiggle & pull.   Getting the door panel off is the hard part.  your already beyond the panel.

Thanks. The drain motor turned on. From your list above, it seems that the keypad is the problem. Both the normal and cancel lights are now blinking continuously.

 

What can I do to repair it or is the only way to buy a new one (any links)?

Thanks. Is there any chance that I can take apart the keypad and attempt to repair it?

All, thank you very much for your help. My new panel just came today. I have installed it and the dishwasher is working once more.

Many thanks to all who have helped.

How to tell whether the touchpanel or control board is bad in a Whirlpool dishwasher

By Samurai Appliance Repair Man in Samurai Appliance Repair Man's Blog, on 08 July 2013 - 08:50 AM

Many times when troubleshooting a Whirlpool-built dishwasher (also sold under the Kenmore and Kitchenaid brands), you'll have a problem that looks like it could be either a bad touchpanel or the control board, but you can't really be sure. Examples include:

- Normal light keeps blinking but the dishwasher won't run
- none of the lights on the panel work...
