Question about Kenmore 16872 Built-in Dishwasher
The Kenmore dryer has a flashing light that says the control panel is locked. According to the instructions on the machine it says to unlock the panel, hold the "no dry" for 4 seconds and the panel will unlock. I have tried depress the no dry several times for 4 seconds and longer and the control panel will not unlock.
push the heated/dry button on the dishwasher for 4 seconds and that will unlock the dishwasher.
This is just a safety feature that allows you to lock the dishwasher to stop kids from pushing buttons.
If that doesn’t’ work let me know and they will send out a tech to fix it.

SOURCE: lock on light flashing
I finally decided to calm down and use my head and managed to solve the problem. I read the instructions that are on the top of the dishwasher door. ( Smart move on my part HUH!) It said that when the door lock light is on everything is disabled. Hold the air/dry button down for 4 seconds and the lock light will go out. Guess what, IT WORKED. Here is what I learned from this. Always read all instructions. I spent $9.95 for an answer that was right in front of me. Humans can be so dumb I am!!!!
