Is the control panel supposed to be backlit?

I have a LG dishwasher, model LMX21981ST, and can barely make out what the touch options are on the control panel.

I have a LG dishwasher, model LMX21981ST, and can barely make out what the touch options are on the control panel.
It looks as thought the panel should be backlit, but mine does not do this (since the beginning) and I am unhappy about this.
We had the previous model of this dishwasher at another home of ours and, though I cannot remember if it was backlit, it was never this difficult to read.
Thank you for any insight and/or help.

    Lovetoflyfish, this is a refrigerator model but the control panel doesn't have a backlight. I can advise more on the dishwasher if you provide me the model number.

    Sorry, I pulled the wrong appliance. My model number for the dishwasher is: LDF7774ST.
    Again, thank you for any help.

    Lovetoflyfish, no worries. The LDF7774ST would not be backlit. The bordering around the cycle will only flash to indicate the selected cycle.
