Lock light is on

Answers :

Look for a button with a picture of a lock on it. Hold it down until it turns off. It may be the button closest to the actual light.

How can I stop the light from blinking to allow button function again?

I have a Kitchenaid Dishwasher Model KUDC25CHSS1. (Manual says KUDC25CH). The Delay Hours button is stuck on 2 hours. The manual says to cancel it, press it until no lights are on, but when we press it, the Child Lock light comes on. I tried pressing Energy Saver Dry to cancel the Child Lock, but that didn't cancel it. I tried turning off the circuit breaker for 5 minutes, but the same light(s) come back on when I re-set it.

I have a Whirlpool dishwasher model #DU920PFGQ4. The controls locked light is flashing, and when I press the air dry key for 5 seconds it won't unlock, however the cancel/drain light starts flashing. When I press the cancel key the controls lock light will stop flashing, but will resume as soon as I release the cancel key. I have tried disconnecting power for 24 hours, but as soon as I plug it back up it does the same thing. Nothing else on the control panel will work.

Control panel buttons don't work. Seem to be stuck in the "Lock On" mode. Can't turn off, and dishwasher won't run. When you open the door all lights go off, but as soon as you relatch the door, the "Lock On" light comes on, although sometimes it can be another light. In any case, it won't run.

The controls on my GE GLD4600N10WW have on occasion locked up. In the past, I have resolved this by turning the breaker off and back on. It has now locked up, but won't reset. When the breaker is turned back on, the dishwasher control panel lights indicate "Normal Wash" and "Heated Dry" but the controls do not respond. After several minutes the lights simply go dark. It does not respond to any button pushing.

Kenmore Ultra Wash Model 665 - 158* Front panel not working properly. Pressing Normal does not light that option. The only option that lights is "Quick Rinse", pressing this lights that option and also the "No Heat Dry" light. After a few seconds the lock light comes on. Looks to me that the "No Dry Heat" button is stuck on, which causes all the other things to happen Is there a way to fix this?
