You want to make sure that the dishwasher is level and secure first of all. Then I would look into the door latch assy. Sounds to me that you are not making all the latch switches when closing normally. When you are slamming it, you are making the switches. The heating element runs through the neutral side of switches, therefor if the switch is broken or the latch is not making, no heating of the water. This results in a default or very long wash time. Check this out first....Catriver..post back.

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?

Dishwasher will not start. The only light that comes on is the "control lock." Model #: KUDP01DL


Press and hold the control lock key for about 10-30 seconds, or until it goes off. This is the "child lock out" mode.

How to unlock the child lock


Most of the dishwasher in this series have an energy saver dry button. Hold this button in for four seconds and it should unlock the child safety lock. Does not work, try again for 30 seconds. Does not work. We have problem. If your model does not have an energy safer button, then type in the model number and you should be able to find the manual online and open the same to find out how to unlock the child safety lock. If all fails then you need an Electronic control board assembly, about $86 for your model, plus shipping from repair clinic.com. If you are at all handy, this is easy repair. Make sure you turn off the breaker or remove the fuse before you attempt any repairs.

Setting cycles and turning dishwasher on


Frenda Most likely the problem with your dish washer is shorted one or more pads on the key panel. To fix it the key panel has to be replaced. If you'll provide the complete model number and color for the control panel for your dish washer, I can help you to find the best deal on this part. Gendos
