I am finding the manual unspecific in relation to console replacement.  I did get the front panel off, but can't see how that gets me to the console.  Do I need to remove the hex bolts on the inside of the door and go in that way?

Put the front panel back on first, then remove the screws inside the door liner. The inner door panel will lift off, revealing the controls..

It looks like a special hex driver is needed, do you know the size I should buy?

I got the console part from Repair Clinic, very easy switch out of the old part.  We washed two loads of dishes and all appeared good.  Late last evening I looked at the dishwasher and the Quick Rinse light was blinking again and the  touch pad was unresponsive; I left the door ajar over night.  This AM I closed the door and the Wash cycle display showed "2", it finished a cycle quickly and is now off. The Quick Rinse light is not blinking.  I suspect some other issues that still need to be resolved.

Use the Tech Sheet to check the Heater circuit.

The control is looking for a particular rinse temperature, so if the heater or thermostat is not working correctly, an error will occur on the control panel.  ("2")

I do have a copy of the Tech Sheet you sent me.  I am out of my league in understanding how to use this to troubleshoot the issue.  I hate to be swiching out parts I might not need.  Any tests I can do to narrow the possibilities?

A little more information.  Last evening the dishwasher has finished its cycle (the green light was on).  I opened the door to check the quality of the wash.  It was at some point after I shut the door that the quick rinse light began to blink.  I am not sure why the machine would be sensing for temperature if the wash cycle was complete.
