I have a Frigidaire Gallery Series dishwasher (model. GLD3450RDB0) that always displays the "lock" icon under the no heat dry button. I am able to get rid of it by holding the button for 3 seconds, but I am still unable to select anything or get the dishwasher to start afterwards. As soon as I close the door, the unit locks again!

I have a Maytag Quiet Series 100 dishwasher. There is an icon with a "3" in it just to the left of "heat dry." I just noticed this "3" light is on and the dishwasher won't start when I push the "start/cancel" button. All that happens is the "3" light flashes when you push any of the other buttons, but it won't do anything else. Any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.


The "3" means hold for 3 seconds to child proof it. When it's on, none of the functions work. When you hold it again for 3 seconds, it turns off and your buttons will work again.\015\012Good luck! ... Dishwashers

Dishwasher malfunction I have a Kenmore Ultra Wash Quiet Guard 3 dishwasher. One day, I found it with a blinking green ?clean? light. I went online to search for the manual, almost impossible to locate. Found a website where another using said to hit a 4 button sequence of ?heated dry? ?normal wash? ?heated dry? and normal wash. After this sequence, all lights went on and something that looked almost like a ?demo? sequence began (not sure now what that was). I hit ?cancel/drain? and it proceeded

Model no. MDB6100AWW. Just unloaded the dishwasher. Shut the door and immediately heard clicking (regular cadence).

Now, just the "Clean" and "6 Hour" arrow indicator lights and "Heated Dry" button light indicator are still blinking continuously. Cannot override. What's going on? Dishwasher came with the house when we purchased it 6 years ago. Proba

Maytag MDB 8600 AWB dishwasher Wouldn''t start... just a Heated Dry light. Replaced (already broken) door handle with complete latch assembly. Still, Heated Dry flashes. Tried various suggested combos of 5 or 6 quick button pushes followed by Start. Only get a 50-=countdown that repeats endlessly. Sometimes alternates with the letter L. Once by luck I guess it went into Heavy Wash mode, or at least the diagnostic for it. Completed this fine, then back to the stubborn Heated Dry light.

I have a maytag dishwasher mdb5601awb. when I hit the start button nothing happens. I have found the instructions to do a manual test which is hitting the heated dry button 5 times and then the start button. Thinking it will run some test which I have no idea what to look for, it actually runs the machine's wash cycles and clean, dries and tells me it clean with the green light goes on. How do I reset/reboot the machine so it starts by just hitting the start button again?

THe ProScrub light is steady, and the dishwasher does not work. When I push buttons, the light keeps going off, and with the next button push, it goes on.
