I have a Whirlpool Energy Star dishwasher (no clue what the model is). Door will not latch. Inside of door says to press and hold ''Heated Dry'' 5 seconds to lock control and repeat to unlock. This is not helping. We rent and do not have a manual. Please help.

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.
