The lock only locks the buttons (childproof), hold it 3 seconds and it will go out.

    SOURCE: 24" builtin Frigidaire Dishwasher, light on top of door says, Hold to lock. I can not operate the machine while this lite is on.?

    Hello Ray E. Weaver - Sounds like the Child Lock option may have been selected. This is a safety feature that allows you to lock and unlock the controls to keep children from interfering with the wash cycle etc. Press and hold the AIR DRY pad button for 3 seconds while the door is latched. This should unlock the control pad for you, light goes out and the unit will display the last cycle ran. However, if it does not, try resetting the unit by unplugging it for flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes and turn the unit back on. However, if it proves to be ineffective I recommend contacting a professional to assist further. The dishwasher may possibly have faulty door lock switch.

    Dishwasher door will not close dishwasher come on with door open.


    Good Morning Garthraie, thanks for your post!
    I see that the door on your Frigidaire dishwasher appears to be locked and will not close. Could you please advise if the control panel has any lights lit up on it? Also, may I have the model number of your dishwasher? You can locate the serial tag (which lists your model number) on the inside left hand wall of your dishwasher. With this additional information I would be able to assist you further. -Matt

    Have a frigidaire dishwasher number FFBD2406NS, has power to the washer it self but none of the lights turn on once pushed to lock the door.


    Good Afternoon Billy, thanks for your submission!
    I understand that your Frigidaire dishwasher, FFBD2406NS, is receiving power but no lights work once the door has been closed and locked. There could be an issue within a wiring harness, door lock, or control panel. Since it could be anyone of these underlying issues I would suggest having a professional technician to perform a proper diagnosis. This will prevent you from purchasing any unnecessary parts. Hopefully this information is helpful towards your repair. -Matt

    Frigidaire professional dishwasher buttons won't respond


    Good Morning Bira, this is Z. I am happy to assist you!

    Based on the symptoms you are describing, it is possible that the "CHILD LOCK" feature on your Frigidaire dishwasher has been selected. The CHILD LOCK is a safety feature that allows you to lock and unlock the controls to keep children from interfering with the washer cycle, or etc. May I please have your model number? You can typically locate the serial tag, which lists your model number, on the right side as you open the door. With this information I can better determine the issue you are experiencing and/or assist you through some basic troubleshooting.

    I have a Frigidaire built in dishwasher that won't start. There is a light on by the 3 second lock button


    Your dishwasher is in the lock mode. If you press the button on the dishwasher that has the lock for maybe 5 seconds , the light will go off. Then put the dishwasher in a wash cycle (normal) and your dishwasher should start up working. Make sure the door is all the way closed. Hear the click of the door when it shuts. After about 90 seconds it should have water in it, press the start/cancel button 2 times and the water drains out.
