Question about Whirlpool 24 in. DU1100XTPS Built-in Dishwasher

2 Answers

There is a green light on with padlock next to it

What reason could there be for the controls of the dishwasher to be locked out? This dishwasher was just installed by my father who has no clue what he is doing. It has never run before, so I don't know what could be wrong with it.

    My youngest child pushed a button or some combination of buttons and now my dishwasher won't run the cycle. Every button I push just makes the little light blink. I don't want to wash dishes by hand!!!

My whirlpool dishwasher control is locked. I tried hitting several button and the light went out. I turned the dishwasher on. It filled with water and then stopped with the controls locked button flashing again. Does anyone have any solutions? If I don't figure this out soon I will be back to washing dishes.
Thanks

Try holding the "heated dry" button for 3-4 seconds. It may be that the "child-proof" lock is on.

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.

Lock light is on will not go off. nothing will work


Hold the Air Dry button until the light goes off. or Press and hold the "Heated Dry" button for approximately 4 seconds. The control lock indicator light under the padlock symbol will turn off when the controls are unlocked.But if that is not helping then its faulty control panel.It has to be replaced.Unplug the unit from power outlet for 10 minutes then reconnect and check,if lock light turns off.----------------- Thank you.

Pushing and holding the 'Heated Dry' button should turn off the light over the padlock symbol and get you going again.
