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?

    The key lock light stays on. I held the heated dry button for 4 seconds and the light still stays on. I think it may be the control board, but I am not sure. Can anyone help me please?

    We bought this model 2 years ago and are now experiencing a problem for the 4th time. the unit will not start, and we were previously told that our domestic hot water is too hot for the unit's thermostat to operate properly. The recommended solution was to bring the water temperature up coming out of the spigot prior to starting the dishwasher. Unfortunately, my wife forgot to do this this week and the unit again failed to start. The last repair technician gave me a progression of pushing the unit's button to correct the problem but I cannot find where I placed the directions. Are you familiar with what "code" order to push?

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.

Control lock lit, no other buttons work


Instructions
    • 1 Press any of the buttons on the control panel to see if the buttons are operational or check to see if the "Control Locked" indicator light is lit. If the control panel is operational, you may mistakenly lock the door.
    • 2 Press and hold the "End of Cycle Signal" button for approximately three seconds until the "Control Locked" indicator light shuts off. The control panel is now unlocked, and the washer is ready for use.

    • 3 Lock the washer again by pressing and holding the "End of Cycle Signal" button until the "Control Locked" indicator light turns on.

I may be totally retarded but I have no clue what the padlock with two arrows in it. It is on top of my keyboard next to the lighted indicators for num lock and shift lock.... anyone have any idea what...


Hi,


The scroll lock key was meant to lock all scrolling techniques, though it is no longer used by almost any software. In the original design, scroll lock was intended to modify the behavior of the arrow keys. When the scroll lock mode was on, the arrow keys would scroll the contents of a text window instead of moving the cursor. In this usage, scroll lock is a modifier key like ALT and SHIFT (which modify the function of other keys) and, more specifically, a toggling Lock key like NUM lock or CAPS lock, which have a state that persists after the key is released.


Regards;
Hassan

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.)
