My "3 Sec" button is


The control touchpads can be locked to prevent unwanted use. If this feature is activated between cycles, the dishwasher cannot be operated until the controls are unlocked.

The indicator tells you that the controls have been locked to prevent kids from messing with them.

Press and hold the "3 Sec" (control lock) button continuously for 3-5 seconds. That should clear the lock.Now you can use the controls normally.

To re-enable the control lock, press and hold the control lock button continuously for 3-5 seconds, until it indicates locked.

How do I go about getting a manual for this dishwasher it is 2 years old. When washing glasses it has a film never looks clean. I have changed dishwasher soap and I am also using the other airdry. Not...


Manuals are usually available on line. The film could be from hard water. Check with local municapal authorities and see. If the local water hardness level above 9 then a water softener is required.

My dishwasher is allowing the water to enter then it will wash for 1 second, then it stops and the red light is not flashing.


What brand is it ? Also most diswashers have a float switch that tells the control panel that the water level is at the operating level. These floats get stuck sometimes and can effect the operation of the diswasher.

Whirlpool GU1500 dishwasher - no wash cycle buttons would turn on (no indicator light/no operation), but the Cancel button/2 minute drain function works. Any suggestions?


I had the same issue. If you have a 1100,1200,1500 etc you have the first series of the dishwasher and there is a heat sensor issue. The dishwasher runs and checks if the water heats up by 8 degrees. If the water doesn't heat enough then the washer will trigger shut down (assuming that there is an issue somewhere in the water heating process could be a variety of things) Alas, it may only be a one time issue and yet the programming in the dishwasher defaults to a shut down where the normal consumer can't get the machine to run. DO THIS: remove the kick panel on the front of the washer. Behind that is a document with a series of buttons that you push to reset the machine's computer e.g. you might have to press 'saniwash' then airdry then Saniwash then airdry. The machine will start the reset process and may also go through a 'cancel' function. After that you should be back in business. They have fixed this issue on the new machines so that the 8 temp trigger has to fail three wash cycles in a row before the consumer lock out is activated. As for those who own the first series....we do lots of resets. P.S. I learned this AFTER I bought two new panels for my GU1500.
Good Luck

Reset control panel


If the clean light blinks 7 times and pauses,you have a problem within heat circuit,inspect the element for cracks or breaks.The actual door latch could be out of alignment also find the latch and bend it downward ever so slightly to assure good connection at door switches. To clear code push hitemp-airdry-hitemp-airdry,this will allow you to run cycle if code comes back,you may need servicer.

Dishwasher is locked somehow and i cant get it back to unlock!


one of your buttons acts as a button or key lock.
on the elite it is the airdry button. there is probably a lock icon by the correct one. hold this button for several seconds and the lock lite will go out and buttons will work.

Light flashing


reset the dishwasher by touching heated dry and normal let it run through that cycle then through a normal cycle got the error blink again. Reset dishwasher by touching heated dry and normal, ran the test cycle, next ran a normal cycle but turned off the heated dry. This allowed the dishwasher to run through a complete cycle did not get the error blink and confirmed that the heating element was out.
