Thread: every light is blinking on my samsung dishwasher

    every light is blinking on my samsung dishwasher

    Model Number: DW80K5050
    Brand: Samsung
    Age: 1-5 years

    I had a power outage in my area. when the power came back on, every light on the touchpad began to blink. I tried to reset by holding down the start button, but that didn't work. I turned off the circuit breaker to the dishwasher for several hours. when I turned it back on, the lights still blinked. I contacted Samsung helpline. The informed me that the touchpad wasn't communicating with the control panel, but would not tell me if either or both should be replaced. I can fix just about anything and refuse to call a tech to repair this. im certain if I were to contact a tech, it would probably cost as much for the repair as purchasing a new dishwasher. any guidance would be greatly appreciated.

    I cannot find any tech info on this unit.
    Hopefully you have the tech sheet.

    If the keypad is a normal bubble switch type pad then odds are that it is a control board problem.

    If the keypad is a touch pad (glass type) then it could be either the keypad or control board.

    Flashing lights is usually a shorted key error but you need the wiring diagram to properly find the fault and many times it cannot be diagnosed.

    Since it is a glass (capacitive) keypad before installing the boards open the door and let the area dry out.
    Also would be a good idea to disconnect connectors and clean them with electronics cleaner or isopropyl alcohol.
    Moisture, dirt and poor grounds/connectors can cause havoc with these keypads.

    just want to let you know that I replaced the main control board and that rectified my problem. I purchased the brand new board from ebay. it was $68 with free shipping. took me about 10 minutes to switch out. wanted to thank you for responding to my post.
