We have a Kenmore Ultra Wash Dishwasher, several years old. The lock light went on yesterday and we could not put it on wash or anything. We hit cancel, unplugged the machine, left the door open so it would stop the cycle...nothing worked. How do you get the lock off when it goes on like that?

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?
