SOURCE: "3 second" light flashing

The 3 second flashing light is a lock that locks out all other functions. To disable, depress the 3 second light for 3 seconds and all the functions will be released. This feature is to use to keep little kids from starting the appliance.

SOURCE: Maytag dishwasher won't start

"unlock" the machine by pressing on '3' and holding for a few seconds. Thats what it says on the back of my dishwasher which is the exact same model.

You will have to reset the console. To do this, close the door and press these buttons in sequence...

-high temp wash
-heated dry
-high temp wash
-heated dry

...all the lights will turn on briefly and the machine will start a diagnostic cycle. You can press cancel or let the diagnostic cyle finish (1-2 minutes).
You should now be able to run the dishwasher as normal.

Whirlpool quiet partner iv. Turn breaker off then on. Displays 4H then goes off few mins later. Press the cancel button and then the POTS AND PANS along with NORMAL buttons start flashing back and forth.


this is not from me but i found it and am passing on..
Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Error code 4h means 4 hour delay start which means that the dishwasher is in delay start mode and has been set to 4 hours. You can either wait for 4 hrs or to start it immediately press the cancel button to cancel the delay start option. After this program the cycle and options and press Start again as the dishwasher will not start the wash until it reaches the delayed hour i.e. till 4hrs. If after 4 hrs still the light blinks and it wont start then you'll have to replace the control panel. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

Purple light is on and cycle won't start


It's possible that you have put the dishwasher into delay mode. Try powering off at the powerpoint as this will force a reset of all programming.



The pause/start button also sets the Delay Start feature which can delay the start of a wash program
from 1 to 12 hours.


To cancel Delay Start
Press the I button.
