We have a two week old Gold series that has washed about 4 loads. Our lock light would flash with a button pushed. Alternating Sani-Rinse and Heat Dry several times then holding the lock button for maybe 5 seconds, the light went out and we could run it. Hope this time was a fluke.

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.
