The Whirlpool Quiet Partner II Dishwasher will not turn on

I have a Whirlpool Quiet Partner II Dishwasher Model DU1101XTP83. I washed a load of dishes and everything seemed to work fine. When I went to unload the dishes, the green light above the "Normal" touch pad was blinking but the dishes were clean, no standing water in the bottom. I've read thru several of the other posts on this topic but none seem to be the same issue.

I wish I had an answer as good as your question. Try unplugging it for 5 minutes to allow it to reset. The idiot lights just don't tell us much. The only thing you may not have checked is an obstructed drain hose.

Press and hold the heated dry button for 5 seconds. The light of the lock will turn off. Then you can start your washer as normal.

"I have problem with Whirlpool Gold Quiet Partner II —> Constantly blinking ‘Normal’ light.

Turning power off and on does not solve (or modifies) the issue. Btw, two other buttons (i.e. light and rinse) their lights are lit but very dim, I had to be REALLY close to notice that. Is this an indication that I have “stuck” buttons and the console but not the control panel needs to be replaced.

Where can I download a service manual for my appliance. Whatever it takes I can definitely tackle myself, my problem is that I do not have a methodical way of trouble shooting. I certainly do not want to call for a repairman (ABT in the NW suburbs of Chicago) they charge an arm and a leg just to show up to your door, parts are of course extra and it is usually something so stupidly simple such as a part replacement or a disconnected wire.
