Question about Kenmore 24 in. 15079 Built-in Dishwasher
I have a Kenmore Elite, Model # 665 stock # 15979. The Lock-On light flashes but the unable to Un-Lock it. When I press Canel both lights flash, unable to canel it unless I open the door. when I reclose it the Lock-On flashes. How do I reset it, tried disconnecting power still does the same. What can I do now other than call Services Pete
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 they will send out a tech to fix it.

I had the same problem and searched the forums for an answer. The simple solution is to press the NO HEAT DRY button for up to 10 seconds - but this didn't work for me. So using a T15 torx wrench I removed the inside panel, and the panel cover to expose the control board. I pulled off, and sprayed WD40 on all 10 plastic fittings and replaced panel. Pressed the cancel button and then all the lights went off. Now I could press the wash cycle selection, dry selection, timer and start. It works!! I read that this is only a temporary fix and may need to be repeated. When this remedy quits working, the control panel can be replaced from searsparts direct for $107.

The best solution I've found, is to unplug it, pull it away from the wall. Get someone to help you carry it out to the garage. Get the Sears Repair Kit ( 8 pound sledgehammer). Beat the **** out of it until you start feeling better. Then drag it out to the curb for the garbage man. This fix seems to work every time!

I held down the lock button for 20 seconds or so. It turned off the child lock.

This is the biggest piece of **** i have ever wasted money on. supposed to be a child lock, guess what, have owned the dishwasher for three months. tried the child lock for the first time and does not lock the door, so child can open door while running and thereby getting a face full of scalding water, but only locks controls. turned it on and now will not unlock. stuck with a major load of thanksgiving dishes. Thanks ONCE AGAIN Sears. You ****

Mine is doing this.. I found on the internet it could possibly be the thermostat.. it locks down when the water temp isn't properly regulated.
