    I didn't charge you, and if you look at the information posted, I also did not provide you with a solution. I merely asked you for clarifying information in an attempt to try to help you. You did not provide any feedback except to say you found your answer elsewhere. I agree with you. If someone charged your account, you deserve a refund if the service was not provided to you. You will need to contact Fixya staff if you aren't satisfied with the service you provided. I don't work for Fixya. I'm a consumer just like you that tries to assist others in providing FREE advice to those that need it.

    Just so we're clear, I did not post this recommendation to do simply to get jump on a question and attempt to provide you with a quick answer with no thought process. As all dishwashers are not alike, so are the fault symptoms they exhibit. Sometimes the answer(s) to your problem is right under your nose if you look for them. Many answers to common problems are provided in the technical data the manufacturer provides with the appliance. That's why I suggested you reference the tech sheet, first. This not only has the potential to provide you with direct answers, but also avoids the cost of a service call. This is a troubleshooting forum. Sometimes it takes a discussion of trading questions and answers in order to solve these problems. Although, I am happy for you that you were able to find a solution to your problem, I'm sorry that I was unable to help you at all. My apologies if you thought this was a waste of time.

    Remove the panel directly under the door. There is usually a tech sheet either behind the panel, or along the interior cabinet wall that explains all the error codes. Most manufacturers place techincal documentation, along with troubleshooting tips for the repairman. As all dishwashers are not alike, it is often difficult to assume or predict what the code may mean with referring to this documentation. If the sheet is not there, it is also sometimes places behind the door interior facing.

I did not use your service to fix my problem - I found the answer on Maytag.com. But you charged me anyway - so I would like that money refunded.

How do I cancel the control lock


It would help if you gave the brand and model number of your dishwasher, but the answer is basically the same. Look carefully at your dishwasher control panel. You probably have a little lock symbol that is lit up (or a light inside the symbol is lit). And usually this lock symbol is located near (usually above) a button that is usually used for another purpose. Most often this is the Heated-Dry key or button. Press and hold this key for 3 to 5 seconds until the lock symbol light goes out. And it's just that easy! But if you press the key, and nothing happens, then you may have a bad control console that will have to be replaced.

Error 1 on kenwood dishwasher


Hello.
Manufactured by Whirlpool, Kenmore dishwashers have an electronic control panel that must be unlocked in order to set or make changes to your dishwashing cycle. If an error light is blinking on your dishwasher's control panel, the panel must be reset before you can gain access. Blinking lights on your dishwasher control panel may signal a mechanical problem that needs to be repaired. If the lights continue to blink after you've reset the control panel, contact Sears to service your Kenmore dishwasher or consider troubleshooting the appliance yourself.
1Press and hold the "Heated Dry" button on your Kenmore dishwasher for four seconds to unlock the dishwasher control panel.
2 Press the "Heated Dry," "Normal Wash," "Heated Dry" and "Normal Wash" buttons one after the other, in fairly quick succession.
3 Wait for the dishwasher to run a short diagnostic test.
4 Press the "Cancel/Drain" button at the end of the diagnostic test cycle. This should reset the control panel on your Kenmore dishwasher.

Thanks.

My maytag 200 quiet series dishwasher has a button with the number 3 next to the start/cancel button and will not start. The 3 flashes but won't start? Any idea what that means?


The control panel has bee locked. Press and hold the heated dry button for 3 seconds until the light next to the lock "3" button goes off. This feature is to prevent small children from starting it. Locking the controls works the same way, hold the heated dry button for 3 seconds will turn it back on.

Kenmore dishwasher ultra was quiet guard 3 model 56516012403 control panel will not activate red lights blinking on normal wash and cancel drain. did the hold the heat dry button then the normal wash...


that would be model # 66516012403 correct??
you may have inadvertently set the lock on function..
check this out from your manual...

Lock On
Use the Lock On to prevent unintended use of the dishwasher
between cycles. You can also use the lock feature to prevent
unintended cycle or option changes during a cycle.
When LOCK ON is lit, all buttons are disabled.
NOTE: The dishwasher door can be opened while the controls
are locked. However, the lock must be turned off and the Start/
Resume button pressed to resume the cycle.
To turn on the Lock
Press and hold HEATED DRY for 4 seconds. LOCK ON glows.
If you press any pad while your dishwasher is locked, the light
flashes 3 times.
NOTE: If the Heated Dry option is selected, the light will
temporarily turn off until Lock On glows.
To turn off the Lock
Press and hold HEATED DRY for 4 seconds. The light turns off.

hope this helps,
best of luck,
ttfn

We have a dishwasher that flashes clean light on front panel and will not allow a new cleaning cycle. Mod GU3200XTPS3 TYPE 577-0


Make sure the control panel is not locked. If you press any pad while your dishwasher is locked, the light flashes 3 times and the selection is ignored. If the lock symbol is lit, press and hold HEATED DRY for 4 seconds. The light turns off.

If the control panel is not locked and the problem still occurs press the Cancel/Drain button to drain all water and clear all indicators. (It might take 2 minutes to complete this action.)

Maytag Quiet Series 300 Will not work at all, only the lock feature is lit.


I had the same problem. The lock button light was on, nothing happened when pressing start, cancel, etc. I also tried holding the heated dry button (lock) for 3 seconds and no luck UNTIL holding down for three seconds while also pressing the cancel button. I was then able to start cycle as normal.
