My dish washer won’t start . The normal wash light stays on

The first thing to check is the child lock-out feature. Most Electronic models have a child lock-out feature to prevent the dishwasher from accidentally being turned on. Make sure the child lockout feature is turned "OFF" according to the instructions in your Owner's Manual. if that does not solve the problem then you can remove the console and access the control board where the ribbon connector connects. Remove the ribbon for a minute then reinstall it and see if there are any improvement.

Child locked on my tv

Possibly, you will need an original remote to disable or turn off this feature. And some child lock can be accessible through neither MENU of your tv or remote. Check CHILD LOCK option to remove it. If it is a screen lock type of CHILD LOCK feature of tv (a Blue Background display a LOCK icon) and your original remote is lost, try a universal remote for you to possibly unlock it. Thanks for using Fixya.

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.

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.
