I took off the lower panel and found some paperwork that gave option notes. under control lock it says "the Control Lock light is turned on and all keys of the keyboard are disabled wheneverthe control lock feature is involked by the customer. The Control Lock feature (and light) can be turned on or off by the costomer at any time by holding down the Air Dry option (water heat/ no water heat) key for 4 plus aeconds." Now I held it down (pushed) longer until the Lock light turned off, then If it doesn't turn off I did it to the no water heat and light turned off.
Hope this helps.

We cannot start our brand new Kenmore Elite Ultraclean dishwasher. The only lihgt that comes on is the flashing red lock light. no other buttons work. What do i do?


Look at the top of the dishwasher door. There may be instructions on how to lock/unlock the controls there. For example, mine says to hold the Heated Dry button for 4 seconds to toggle between lock/unlock.

The Control Locked light is on and nothing will work


Hello

When the control lock light remains on and no buttons on the keypad work then it means that the controls are locked. Press the AUTO DRY button and hold it for 15 seconds to unlock/reset the controls. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

I need to reset my Kenmore Elite dishwasher but i don't know how.


Hello,

follow the below instructions:

Unlock your Kenmore dishwasher control panel by pressing and holding the "Heated Dry" button for four seconds.

Press a series of four buttons in quick succession. Press "Heated Dry," "Normal Wash," "Heated Dry" and "Normal Wash" to instruct your Kenmore dishwasher to run a short diagnostic test

Wait for two minutes while your Kenmore dishwasher runs its diagnostic test.

Press the "Cancel/Drain" button once your dishwasher has completed its diagnostic test. This should reset your dishwasher control panel and stop the "Clean" light from blinking repeatedly.
Good luck.

Clean light flashing


This is a communication error between the control and motor. Try resetting the control by pressing the following keys with in 5 seconds.

HEATED DRY, NORMAL, HEATED DRY, NORMAL

after about 15 seconds hit cancel then the control should be unlocked. If the problem comes back the problem is most likely with the motor for the pump. Check with your warranty, some of these Kenmore models may be under warranty

Contol Locked


This advise is for Kenmore Elite and Whirlpool Duet front loader washers and dryers with a Control Lock problem.

This may or may not be an indication of a serious problem. In the majority of the cases, this is a simple operator error. Nearly all these model appliances have some sort of Control Lock feature on the front panel now. This is a designed safety feature that is used to prevent small children from manipulating the controls. The controls can be easily locked or unlocked by pressing and holding the following button on the front panel:

Whirlpool Duet Washer - Press and hold the END OF CYCLE SIGNAL button for 3 seconds.

Whirlpool Duet Dryer - Press and hold the END OF CYCLE SIGNAL button for 3 seconds.

Kenmore Elite Washer - Press and hold the DRAIN/SPIN button for 3 seconds.

Kenmore Elite Dryer - Press and hold the AUTO DRY LEVEL button for 3 seconds.

These instructions may not be all inclusive for all Kenmore and Whirlpool models, but they are the most common. Chances are, if you have a Control Lock feature, the instructions will be printed on the front panel adjacent to the button that is required to lock or unlock the controls.

NOTE: These instructions may also work for newer model Maytag, Hotpoint, Admiral and Fridgidaire model front loaders as well. Refer to your owner's manual or front panel for instructions pertaining to your sepcific model.

If the Control Lock feature will not lock or unlock the appliance, unplugging the unit for AT LEAST 30 minutes is recommended in order to reset the main control board. In many cases this is all that is required to correct momentary glitches.

Mine has an "auto dry" button. It says underneath, "Press & hold 3 seconds..." to unlock control. I did it, it worked.
