Lock Control I don't have a manual for my dishwasher. The Lock button is on (top of dishwasher). I have pushed that top button for 3 seconds. The button on the top and the "L" then both blink. The button on the top then stays on and the "L" light goes off. Since I can't get the lock light to go off - - my dishwasher won't tun on. Thank you very much.

The control lock light goes on as soon as I press the cycle to start the dishwasher. The dishwasher does not start, presumably because the control lock stays on. I do not know how to disable the control lock function. Pushing and holding the button for 3 seconds does not disable it.

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.

I have a Fridgidaire dishwasher with a control lock feature that has now decided to lock!! There is nothing in the manual about this. The manual doesn't acknowledge this feature!! Ridiculous! Anyhow, my control lock light is on and I cannot run my dishwasher!!

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.

Kenmore 665.1646 dishwasher. A nearby lighting strike killed some electronic devices in our house. We have electricty to our dishwasher but the console will not light at all.

Hi.If you have tested fuse, overfill, latch, and you have a new electronic control, then it is necessarily a wiring problem. However, since wiring problem causing this after lighting is quite uncommon, I suggest double checking all the re ... Dishwashers

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.

Our Kitchenaid dishwasher model # KUDP021R will not start. We close door, select wash and press start. The control lock light at the top which is lit flashes a few times and then stays lit. Dishwasher remains silent. An aside which may be helpful is that the door has always seemed to be not quite straight...as though it had to warp a tiny bit to close and lock.


The problem you have already identified could be the door switch is not closing when you shut the door. Please confirm your dishwasher is KUDP02I (i and not 1).\015\012\015\012One way to check is find out the door switch on the door panel ... KitchenAid Dishwashers
