The safety lock/unlock button is stuck on. I hold in the proper button for 5 secs. like they say to do, but it goes right back to being stuck "ON" which disengages the machine from working. Help! I'm up to my ears in dishes.

If the model number you listed this question under is correct, this model dishwasher has two locking features (both controlled by the same button).
There is a Control Lock which locks all the control buttons, so the dishwasher cannot be started. It is enabled by pressing and holding the lock button for about 3 seconds. To disable, press and hold the lock button until the light goes out. A single beep will be heard when the feature is turned on.
There is also a Keylock feature which locks the drawer shut and disables all the controls so the dishwasher cannot be opened or started. It is enabled by pressing and holding the lock button for about 5 seconds. To disable, press and hold the lock button until the lock light goes out. Two beeps will be heard when the feature is turned on.
Both these functions are safety features that enable the consumer to lock the dishwasher controls to prevent children from inadvertently starting the appliance.
