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.

I have a Whirlpool Dishwasher and it is locked and I don't know how to unlock it


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.
