I do not know how to turn off child lock safety feature. How do I do this?


To turn on or off the child lock

Press and hold the ENERGY SAVER DRY button for 4 seconds.

Here is a copy of the owners manual if you have any other questions.

Dishwasher won't start and control buttons don't do anything.


It would have helped if you provide the Dishwasher model.

HOwever, I am assuming you have the power connected and inlet water is turned on.

It is likely the child control button might be enabled. CHeck dishwasher manual to show how to disable child lock.

If this is not the problem, then assuming your dishwasher has this feature, try to hard reset the dishwasher to factory setting. This is usually done by pressing 2 buttons (depending on dishwasher) together for a specific time. Or in some cases the mains power is turned off and on within a specific time.

Please post a comment to indicate your observations and model no. Please do not rate this solution until I have got some more details of your dishwasher problem.

The lock light is "on" the front panel and the dishwasher won't start?


Sounds like the child lock feature has been activated.

Press and hold the "Lock" button for 5 seconds, and the lock light should turn off.

How do i get the lock off my dishwasher


Hi

If you are referring to the Child-lock feature which deactivates the buttons from use then usually on Kenmore dishwashers you can deactivate this child lock by holding the "No Heat Dry" button for 4 or more seconds. This should get the panel to respond again.

Hope this helps. Please do rate my answer. Many Thanks.

Control lock is on and don't know how to turn it off


Without knowing the manufacturer and model number, it is impossible to be specific. But most dishwashers that have a control lock light means that you have a child safety feature on the dishwasher. If you look closely, you may see some symbol that ties two buttons together and maybe if you press both at the same time, the child lock out may turn off.

Post info about the make and model here to get more specific.

Door will not open on my KitchenAid Superba dishwasher


Hi Karissa (I LOVE your name!)

I took the opportunity of your post to upload a technical service manual for you. The "child lock" feature is only for the control functions (the buttons) and has nothing to do with the door actually locking. Here is the link to the tech manual. I hope you find it useful.

Door doesnot close


The LG LDS 5811 and all models that start with 'LDF" do not have a door latch. They do have a child lock _but_ that feature does not lock the door closed or open, it just locks the controls so the DW can not be turned on or settings changed.
So, please look at the right side edge of the opened door and post the model # back here.
Thanks!
