I have a Frigidaire Gallery Series dishwasher (model. GLD3450RDB0) that always displays the "lock" icon under the no heat dry button. I am able to get rid of it by holding the button for 3 seconds, but I am still unable to select anything or get the dishwasher to start afterwards. As soon as I close the door, the unit locks again!

Machine cannot finish cycle and is stuck in pumping out mode. Only tiny amount of water in drain basin at bottom, no excessive water. Was set at 10pm, still attempting to drain 8am! Has no diagnostic dials or manual over rides so continues on whether door is open or closed, even if I switch off and on again. Possible related issue, recently finish at end of washes has been "grainy", far from perfect, surfaces slightly sandy feeling.

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 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

Setting the water hardness system on Beko DWD 4310W. The handbook instructions seem to be wrong. There's no display panel on the machine as it states, and it tells you to press and hold Start/Stop button and switch the On/Off button, release the On/Off button, press and hold Start/Stop button for 10 seconds,( which you are still pressing anyway!) Then it says the last setting will be displayed on the panel for five seconds. But no panel.Totally confusing.

I have a bosch dishwasher SHE43C06UC22 (non-LED version). It's stuck in the drain cycle and continues to run even when opening the door (it should stop, but it doesn't). As a test, I poured a large glass of water in the bottom of the dishwasher and it drained it into the sink as it should, but it continues to run in the drain mode with no water in it. I've heard I either have a float stuck or an emergency drain switch or leak somewhere causing the dishwasher to continue in the drain mode. Ho

My Bosh dishwasher now runs well past the 105 minutes as stated in the manual, over three hours before I intervene. It gets stuck on the wash mode, it wont drain or rinse, just runs and runs in the wash mode (I know it's in the wash mode because when I open it up, theres suds inside). It will do the wash mode until I reset the wash mode to "Rinse & Hold". I appreciate whatever information you could provide.
