Re: control panel

I think this is the Salt symbol. Add salt to the machine to fix.

Re: control panel

Try turning off the breaker to it for a few min… and then turn it back on that might reset it.

Can not start a wash cycle

Hello. From the symptoms you describe, the problem might be a defective control panel. First, make sure the control lock is not enabled!! Look for a button that has a "key" symbol or the word "lock" underneath it. Touch and hold for 5 seconds until the lock is disabled. The part numbers for the different styles of the dishwasher for the control panel are:
The touch control panels can become damaged from a variety of causes. Power surges(Have you had an outage in the last 3-4 weeks!?), defective components, moisture invasion, etc. are the most common culprits. If a button is "electrically stuck"(i.e. the computer thinks you're still pressing it), nothing else will work until the button is released. It is just like any other appliance with physical buttons(soft touch for example on a microwave or range). Now, if the dishwasher actually starts when you press the start button, then the problem lies with the main control board(part# W10352588)--remember--a stuck button will prevent any other action until it's released. The troubleshooting on this unit is relatively complicated--when diagnostic mode is entered, the clean light will flash a certain number of times for the first part of an error code(function code, then it will flash again a certain number for the second part, problem code,(ex. blink 6 times, wait, blink 1 time). There is an error code chart that has the meanings to the different sequences--(ex. a 6-1 is inlet water valve(function), and then "no water"(problem). You press the start button to advance to the next stored error code. Power off the unit to go back to normal mode. If you are hesitant about performing any of the troubleshooting, call for service! I hope this helps you!

How do I cancel the control lock

It would help if you gave the brand and model number of your dishwasher, but the answer is basically the same. Look carefully at your dishwasher control panel. You probably have a little lock symbol that is lit up (or a light inside the symbol is lit). And usually this lock symbol is located near (usually above) a button that is usually used for another purpose. Most often this is the Heated-Dry key or button. Press and hold this key for 3 to 5 seconds until the lock symbol light goes out. And it's just that easy! But if you press the key, and nothing happens, then you may have a bad control console that will have to be replaced.

How to "unlock Control panel" on Whirlpool Dishwasher

Press and hold lock button for 3-5 seconds. Lock button is usually the heat dry button. Should have a little padlock symbol next to it. If that doesn't work, control panel is bad.

Kenmore ultra wash machine won't run even with indicator lights on. Symbol on machine says Lock on

You have the control-lock function turned on. There should be a key located near (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 your dishwasher and you can now use it normally.

Selection Buttons on GE Cafe Dishwasher

see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Drain Pump If lights are flashing on the control panel, the drain pump might not be working properly. For two-wire drain pump motors check them for continuity using an Ohm meter. If it's defective YOU'LL need to replace it. Drain pumps are not repairable.

Heating Element If lights are flashing on the control panel, the heating element might have burned out. The heating element heats the water up to operating temperature. After a set amount of time if the temperature isn't reached a light on the control panel might start flashing. The heating element can be checked for continuity with an Ohm meter.

Heating Element Assembly If lights are flashing on the control panel, the heating element assembly might have burned out. The heating element assembly heats the water up to operating temperature. After a set amount of time if the temperature isn't reached a light on the control panel might start flashing. The heating element assembly can be checked for continuity with an Ohm meter.

Touchpad and Control Panel If the lights are flashing on the display the entire touchpad and control panel assembly might be defective. If the display works but the dishwasher functions are all out of synch, or some of the buttons don't respond properly the entire touchpad and control panel might need to be replaced.

Touchpad If the display lights are flickering for no reason, the touchpad might need to be replaced. Sometimes when the touchpad is defective the display lights are flashing randomly.

Check Fault Codes If the display lights are flashing and there is an error code in the display window, check the Error Codes guide on our website to determine which component has failed or is failing

Unknown control panel symbols bosch dishwasher super silent

Wash Cycle Options

Delay Start (model dependent):

This option allows you to delay the start time of your dishwasher up

to 19 hours.


The Sanitize feature is available only in the Heavy, Auto, Normal and Half Load cycles. Press the

"Sanitize Option" button to activate the Sanitation features during these cycles. The technical sanitation

measures may also improve the drying results. The sanitize LED or The "Water Pipe" symbol will light when sanitation

requirements are met.

Note: The dishwasher automatically defaults to Auto Wash when turned off and back on. If you used the sanitize option
in your last cycle, the dishwasher will default to Auto Wash with the Sanitize option selected when you turn it on.

To achieve proper drying, always use a liquid rinse aid, even if your detergent contains a rinse aid or

drying additive.

Note: The dishwasher indicates low rinse aid by turning on the Refill Rinse Aid indicator LED (for units without

a display) or The "Spray Looking" symbol (for units with a display).

If this light is on, you need to refill the rinse aid dispenser

I got the idea that the "squiggly arrow" has something to do with the sanitize feature also. If you post your model number "on the inside right hand side of your dishwasher door" I'll go get your manual and post the link here. Hope this helps so far! :)

A wrench symbol is up and the dishwasher will not start after putting in a small amount of dishwashing detergent.

If I understand correctly you have locked the drawer, push and hold the far right button on the control panel until you hear 1 beep, this will release the control lock and allow fun function tot eh control again.
Any more questions please ask, glad to help

Water is not draining.... OE symbol appears on display. Checked the connection up to sink and drainage out to garbage disposal. everything seems fine there!

Hello & Welcome to FixYa

OE is a drain error and is displayed when the washer is unable to drain water. Please check the drain hose and drain pump filter by removing the bottom front access panel for any clogs to clean the error. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

We have a dishwasher that flashes clean light on front panel and will not allow a new cleaning cycle. Mod GU3200XTPS3 TYPE 577-0

Make sure the control panel is not locked. If you press any pad while your dishwasher is locked, the light flashes 3 times and the selection is ignored. If the lock symbol is lit, press and hold HEATED DRY for 4 seconds. The light turns off.

If the control panel is not locked and the problem still occurs press the Cancel/Drain button to drain all water and clear all indicators. (It might take 2 minutes to complete this action.)
