Try holding the "lock controls" button in for 3-5 seconds, until the light goes out. On our dishwasher, the light for the lock-out feature is not on the button itself, but on the far left of the panel.

Dishwasher wont turn on when I press start and... the "3 second" lock light is constantly on??


Child Lock Controls
To prevent children from accidently changing the
dishwasher cycle or starting the dishwasher, lock the
dishwasher controls by pressing and releasing the RINSE
ONLY pad (some models) or the NO HEAT DRY pad (some
models) for 3 seconds while the door is latched. An
indicator light on the lock graphic pad will illuminate when
the controls are locked and no new selections can be made
until the lock is released. To unlock the controls, press the
same pad, RINSE ONLY or NO HEAT DRY, again for 2
seoncds until the indicator light goes out.


Hope this helps?

My "3 Sec" button is


The control touchpads can be locked to prevent unwanted use. If this feature is activated between cycles, the dishwasher cannot be operated until the controls are unlocked.

The indicator tells you that the controls have been locked to prevent kids from messing with them.

Press and hold the "3 Sec" (control lock) button continuously for 3-5 seconds. That should clear the lock.Now you can use the controls normally.

To re-enable the control lock, press and hold the control lock button continuously for 3-5 seconds, until it indicates locked.
