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.

My GE dishwasher's door is stuck shut ~ I'm assuming a broken latch. I was told to fix the latch, the dishwasher has to be taken out from under the counter top (in order to get the door open). My problem is: with the dishwasher door stuck shut, it's impossible to unscrew the dishwasher from the countertop... Any helpful hints? Pleeeeeeeease (all of my silverware is stuck INSIDE the locked dishwasher - LOL!)

I have a Kitchenaid Dishwasher Model KUDC25CHSS1. (Manual says KUDC25CH). The Delay Hours button is stuck on 2 hours. The manual says to cancel it, press it until no lights are on, but when we press it, the Child Lock light comes on. I tried pressing Energy Saver Dry to cancel the Child Lock, but that didn't cancel it. I tried turning off the circuit breaker for 5 minutes, but the same light(s) come back on when I re-set it.

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.
