Having problems with your Whirlpool Dishwashers ?

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.

Kenmore Ultra Wash Dishwasher Model 665.15779 LOCK ON light blinking on control panel, unable to use washer. If buttons were locked, LOCK ON light should be lit continually not flashing. If you press and hold NO HEAT DRY button to disengage lock, nothing happens. If you press the CANCEL button it begins to blink in unison with the LOCK ON light. How can I stop the light from blinking to allow button function again?

Mod# mdb7601aww.... When I press cycle key, say heavy duty, then close door the 2H light flashes. I press the start button and the unit will not start. I have shut it down electricly and get the same results. what can be the problem? The front panel with the start/delay buttons or the inside control panel? I like to figure this on out the first time because each of those parts are $100+.

How do you unlock the control panel of the dishwasher? I held heated dy key for 3 to 10 secs as the manual states but that did not unlock it. The light remains lite. Press any other key and it flashs 5 times.

The standard procedure to start the machine is to select a cycle (normal, dry heat, etc) then press the start key. Currently when I select the cycle and the cycle LED is on, pressing the start key does not start the machine. I can press cancel, then start and then choose the cycle and it will work. Also, if I first press the start key, the machine will start and the previous wash cycle selection LED will light up and that cycle will run. Do I have a problem with the keypad or the con
