I have a Whirlpool dishwasher & locked mine by pushing the "Air Dry" button for about 5 seconds. To unlock it, I pushed it in again another 5 seconds and the unlock light went out & it worked fine. Whatever button you locked it with originally (if you know), should unlock it when held in again.

DISHWASHER was locked now unlocked but won't run. Goes to drain/Cancel when you push the Normal Cycles


Wondering how you unlocked the dishwasher. Normally you would have pressed Heat Dry for about 4 secs.

I don't this action would have caused the problem. For dishwasher to run you need the door lock switch to operate. If door is not closed it will go to Cancel.

Check item 12 in this diagram.

I have a Whirlpool Gold "Quiet Partner III" dishwasher. On the front panel a small green light over what looks to be a "lock " symbol has come on and although the door seems to be locked in I can't get...


If that didn't work. I'm trying to figure out what's wrong with my dishwasher right now, and I was looking for the product number on it. And when you open the door to the dishwasher, right on the inside on the top there is a sticker that tells you how to lock and unlock the buttons. On mine it says to hold down on the 'heated dry' button for 5 seconds.

My daughter has a Whirlpool series 930 dishwasher and it is locked? How do I unlock it?


This just happened to me recently on my Whirlpool. My dishwasher indicates that the "Air Dry" button will lock it out if held in for 5 seconds. To unlock it, hold this button in for another 5 seconds or until the lock out light goes out. Hope this helps.

Whirlpool dishwasher won't start


I have had the same problem with my dishwasher. I.e., the buttons don't respond (no LED) when you press them. Only the "Cancel/Drain" light works and the dishwasher reacts to cancel/drain. I found a diagnostic in the kick panel that has you press; "heated dry, normal, heated dry, normal" within 6 seconds and the washer goes through a diagnostic. All of the tests perform as they should and at the end the washer works again. I don't know why unless doing this resets the circuit board. Does anyone know?
