Good Morning Tara, I am happy to assist you!

If your door is in the locked position, first reset the power to the unit for about one minute. Can you open the door? If so, the main control board may need replacing. If you cannot open the door, then the door switch assembly may need to be replaced. This is not a typical DIY job. I would recommend reaching out to an experienced appliance tech just to ensure no troubleshooting step has been missed. Parts are often costly and if the problem is precisely diagnosed, it can save you a lot of time and funds. I hope these troubleshooting tips help you in some small way.

I was using the spin cycle to spin water from a scarf. I decided to stop the stop so I hit cancel button. Now the washer door is locked and I can't open it.


• If the cycle is interrupted during spin, it will take approximately 2-3 minutes for the door lock to release. DO NOT force open the door. • To stop the washer, press Cancel.

My washer has 14 mintues left and it is blinking 14


you can try to unplug the machine for 30 minutes, let it reset itself that way. I'm not sure that'll work but it's worth the effort. What do you have to lose?

Unable to cancel cycle and restart machine


Instead of hitting cancel twice, only press once,. You should hear the washer unlock. Then try to start again. If that doesn't work, try unplugging the washer in mid cycle. Are you getting and codes popping up?

Clean light flashes constanly. Won't clear out to start new cycle


If the clean light flashes 7 times, pauses, then repeats...

When the dishwasher doesn't sense a water temperature increase, it will stop working and lock the functions (clean light flashes 7 times, all buttons are non responsive). It does this as a safety in case the element is broken and feeding electrical current into the water.

To resolve this you will have to reset the console. Do this by closing the door and press these buttons in sequence...

-high temp wash
-heated dry
-high temp wash
-heated dry

...all the lights will turn on briefly and the machine will start a diagnostic cycle. You can press cancel or let the diagnostic cyle finish (1-2 minutes).
You should now be able to run the dishwasher as normal.

If the issue returns, you could have a problem with the heating circuit (ie. element, thermostat or wiring). It rarely happens but it could also be the door switch not engaging properly when the door is closed (slightly bend the door latch down making sure it doesn't hit the door when you close it).
