The LOCK ON can be turned on or off by pressing and holding the AIR DRY button in for 4 seconds. This feature is used to prevent accidental use of the dishwasher, and/or small children from manipulating the control panel. These instructions are on page 15 of the Owner's Manual. If you no longer have a manual, you can download or print a FREE copy at managemylife.com.

If you still require assistance, please post back and let me know. I hope this information is helpful to you.

Kenmore ultra wash dishwasher


Look carefully at your dishwasher keyboard, to see what key is nearest (above or below) the lighted lock symbol. Usually it's the Heated Dry button. Whatever it is, press and hold that key for 5 seconds. That should unlock you dishwasher and you can now use it normally.

Hello, i have a Kenmore Quietguard standard dishwasher. it is in the "lock" position under dry options and the dishwasher will not start. can you tell me how i might be able to re-start this?


On our Kenmore Quietguard the lock light is at the Air Dry button. Holding the Air Dry button for about 8 seconds turns the lock light off if it is on and on if it is off.

Kenmore dishwasher ultra was quiet guard 3 model 56516012403 control panel will not activate red lights blinking on normal wash and cancel drain. did the hold the heat dry button then the normal wash...


that would be model # 66516012403 correct??
you may have inadvertently set the lock on function..
check this out from your manual...

Lock On
Use the Lock On to prevent unintended use of the dishwasher
between cycles. You can also use the lock feature to prevent
unintended cycle or option changes during a cycle.
When LOCK ON is lit, all buttons are disabled.
NOTE: The dishwasher door can be opened while the controls
are locked. However, the lock must be turned off and the Start/
Resume button pressed to resume the cycle.
To turn on the Lock
Press and hold HEATED DRY for 4 seconds. LOCK ON glows.
If you press any pad while your dishwasher is locked, the light
flashes 3 times.
NOTE: If the Heated Dry option is selected, the light will
temporarily turn off until Lock On glows.
To turn off the Lock
Press and hold HEATED DRY for 4 seconds. The light turns off.

hope this helps,
best of luck,
ttfn

Try pushing and holding the "Air Dry" button for at least 4 seconds. This should turn the control lock off.

It sounds like the child lock is on. Is the light on when the door is closed and nothing is pressed? If so hold the lock button until the light turns off. If you do not have a lock button, try the heated dry button or consult the manual to find out which button toggles the child lock.
Good luck.

Hi stmike1georg

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

You want to know how to unlock the controls on your dishwasher?

No problem. You'll notice the lock light is next to the "heated dry" button. Just press and hold till the lock light goes out, about 6 seconds. The same process will turn the lock light back on. Perhaps the last time someone touched it they held it too long.

Feel free contact me again!

I've tried the NOHEAT button but I just get a few blinks on the lock light and the problem persists.

Any Ideas?
