Have a kitchenaid dishwasher KUDS25SHWH1 - the child-lock light came on and will not go off.

Maytag Quiet Series 800 dishwasher won't start. The only button that I can get to work is pressing and holding the locking feature--that light eventually comes on. A couple of times I came back in an hour or so or the next morning and hit the start button and it started right up. Now it won't start at all. VERY FRUSTRATING!

Hi, We have a Smeg ST 663 dishwasher that does work. However, sometimes when you want to use it and turn the power button on it beeps twice with the red light flashing and you can't get it to work or change the settings. Sometimes if we leave it for a while and try it again later it will work, but it is annoying as sometimes it won't want to work for ages and we really want our dishes cleaned! The dishwasher doesn't have many buttons on it (a power button, cycle selection button and 1/2 load

KUDP01ILBS6 Kitchenaid dishwasher Doesn't work, except flashing lights on front panel. I have the normal light flashing. When I push any other button the cancel light starts blinking as well. I replaced the fuse, the main control board inside and it still doesn't work. Push button panel next fix? This is getting expensive. Could it be something minor?

I used the "rinse only" cycle on the dishwasher a little while ago. I've never used this cycle before. After dinner I tried to start the dishwasher, but no other buttons on the panel respond except the last one I used, which is the rinse only cycle. I push and push, I tried pushing and holding, nothing works, I get no lights no anything. I've been using the "light wash" cycle for a long time and I normally just push the start button and the last cycle used starts automatically, so I wasn't a

Whirlpool dishwasher model GU2-400-XTB7 Problem started with display cycling through delay times. (1 hr, 2hr, 3 hr and so on.) Was able to cancel that for short periods and then it would repeat the cycle. Was able to run dishwasher by pressing different buttons. Then it would start a cycle but did not run full cycle. Now control panel doesn't work at all. When buttons are pushed, lights do not light up and nothing happens. Is stuck in lock mode.

We have a Kenmore Ultra wash dishwasher Model # 665.13733K601 and serial # FW18136133. came home from work yesterday and the pots and pan button and the normal wash buttons were flashing alternately. When I pushed the cancel button it started to flash, then I pressed the smart wash button and now its flashing. I turned of the breaker for awhile and then back on and the lights weren't on right away but later started flashing again, and I can't get the dishwasher to do anything. Any help on my pro

I have a Maytag quiet series 300, model # MDBTT60AWW. The front control panel have some green lights on but the start/cancel button won't work.

My kenmore dishwasher, model 665.16473300 has stopped working. Now the lights just flash at the Smart Wash, Normal Wash, and Cancel. I've reset the power and it just comes back. I've taken the drain area apart and made sure there are no obstructions. The buttons seem to respond, as after I reset the unit (breaker), only the Smartwash button is flashing. I push cancel and then it starts flashing. So I think the buttons work, but it's locked up.

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.

Dishwasher: Whirlpool Gold Quiet Partner. Has worked fine until had a house plumbing blockage which made water pool in the bottom of the dishwasher as well as kitchen sink. Tried to get it to drain at first using keypad. Drain light clicked on and then off because there was nowhere for water to do. Manually emptied most of the water, then "Cancel/Drain" worked if I held it down quite a while. House plumbing is now fixed. However the keypad only works sporadically now. Some buttons do so

I have a Kenmore dishwasher model 66574362K2. It has worked fine until tonight. I opened the door before the end of a cycle, closed the door, and pushed the cancel drain button.

The manual says to push and hold the button for 4 seconds to turn it off. I did that. But now it is flashing between the Heate

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
