Question about Whirlpool GU2400XTP Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

Lock lit on front panel

Somehow the dishwasher has "locked". There is a padlock on the front panel with an indicator light. I have no idea how it lit up or why? The dishwasher will not operate in this mode. How do you turn off?

What should i do to restart the machine for it has got locked and am not able to operate it?

If I am interpreting this correctly, the child lock has become enabled and now the keypad won't work--most dishwashers--you have to press and hold the button(s) that have a tiny padlock symbol beneath or the word "lock" for 3-5 seconds until the lock light goes out. Then, the control panel should work normally.

Lock light is on will not go off. nothing will work

Hold the Air Dry button until the light goes off. or Press and hold the "Heated Dry" button for approximately 4 seconds. The control lock indicator light under the padlock symbol will turn off when the controls are unlocked.But if that is not helping then its faulty control panel.It has to be replaced.Unplug the unit from power outlet for 10 minutes then reconnect and check,if lock light turns off.----------------- Thank you.

We have a dishwasher that flashes clean light on front panel and will not allow a new cleaning cycle. Mod GU3200XTPS3 TYPE 577-0

Make sure the control panel is not locked. If you press any pad while your dishwasher is locked, the light flashes 3 times and the selection is ignored. If the lock symbol is lit, press and hold HEATED DRY for 4 seconds. The light turns off.

If the control panel is not locked and the problem still occurs press the Cancel/Drain button to drain all water and clear all indicators. (It might take 2 minutes to complete this action.)
