The contol lock LED is illuminated on the front panel of my Maytag dishwasher. (Neither my wife nor I pressed the control lock for 3 seconds!) We've tried to extinguish it by pressing it for 3 to 5 seconds, but it remains ON. We've turned off the breaker to the dishwasher overnight, but when we turn the breaker back On, the contol lock LED comes on. We simply can't unlock the control panel. We can tell that all of the other buttons work just fine because pressing any of them causes the 3 Sec LED

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.

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.
