Hold the button with the lock until the light turns off. Consult the manual.

Can you provide a model number?

Okay so I tried the 4 second hold down on the "Energy Saver Dry" Didn't work. I tried 20 seconds...Nope. I held it down for 1 full minute...Nothing. Finally I gave it one last shot before calling the Repair Man. I held the "Energy Saver Dry" and The "Cancel" Buttons down together for about a Minute. The "Child Lock" Light went out. I hit "Start" and WALLAH !!!!! It worked. Saved a few bucks by my determination...GOOD LUCK.

My top drawer of kitchenaid dishwasher lock light is on. I can't get it off?


It's a child lock. To turn off the child lock on a Kitchen Aid dishwasher, locate the Energy Saver/Dry button. Press and hold this button for at least four seconds.

KITCHENAID DISHWASHER SUPERBA MODEL KUDS01DJSS0 CHILDLOCK DOES NOT OPEN .REMAINS IN LOCKED POSITION EVEN AFTER POWER RESET. CAN'T USE THE DISHWASHER.


Hi,
The easy solution is to try pressing the Energy Save Dry button & hold it in for 3-5 seconds. This should turn the child lock on & off.

If this doesn't work, then it's likely that one of the pads on the control panel is stuck, and it (the control panel) will have to be replaced.

If you don't have the manual, you can download one here (PDF format). Good luck!

The child lock is stuck on my kitchenaid superba dishwasher


Locate the "Energy Saver/Dry" button on the dishwasher. The location of this button will be different depending upon the specific model number of the dishwasher, but should be easy to spot. If you have trouble finding it, you can check the diagram in the manual of your dishwasher for the exact location for your specific model.
Press and hold down this "Energy Saver/Dry" button for at least four seconds. Make sure that you do not release the button until at least 4 seconds have passed, otherwise the lock will not become disabled.
Check to make sure that the child lock indicator light has turned off. If this light is no longer on, this means you were successful at turning off the child lock. If the light is still on, repeat the process, but try to press and hold the "Energy Saver/Dry" button for a few seconds longer. If it still doesn't work, there may be a more complicated issue with your dishwasher. Consult your manual, or call to the manufacturer or repair man to determine if there is another problem with your dishwasher.

Child lock blinking on a Kitchenaid ultima diswasher.


Try holding the E.S. button down for 30 seconds. Does not work, you need an Electronic control assembly which can be ordered online from Repair clinic .com for $146 for your model plus shipping. This is apparently a common problem with Kitchenaid dishwashers. Just repaired one the other day. Tried everything, but as soon as the new Electronic control assembly was installed, everything was Okay. This is an easy repair for anyone who is handy at all. Please shut off power to the dishwasher by switching the breaker off or removing the fuse.
