Question about Whirlpool 24 in. DU1100XTP Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

Lock button is stuck on

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.

When I push the start button on my dishwasher, the "hold 3 sec" light blinks but nothing happens and no other buttons work.


It sounds like the control panel is locked. See if one of the buttons says lock and hold it down for at lest 3 seconds. If the control is locked, that should unlock it. Its a child safety feature.

Are you pushing the button repeatedly or pushing it once and and holding it on for 4-5 seconds? Just push and hold it on for a few seconds till the lock light goes off.

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.

Unlock the controls to start dishwasher


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.

These instructions are on page 12 of your owner's manual. If you no longer have a manual, you can obtain a FREE copy at managemylife.com. Just go to the site and type in your number under the "Manuals" link. These manuals are available in .pdf (Adobe) format that you can download or print for FREE.
