I need to do this to fix the LED power on light and the program control child lock spring both of which have become dislodged during transit. I've removed the drawer, the control knobs, and all the screws in the front panel but the panel doesn't budge. Are there plastic locking tabs or something?

Re: How do I remove the front control panel?
Remove the 3 screws at the rear top to remove the top cover. you now have access to back of control panel. tou should see some plastic lugs sticking out through metal clips. you will have to force the lugs through the clips with a flat blade screw driver. be careful it is easy to brake them

Usually you need to press and hold a button or a pair of buttons to toggle the Child Lock function. Without the model number of your dishwasher, I can't be sure if this will work on your machine. It did work on the old Kitchenaid I had. Press and hold the Energy Saver/Dry button for 4+ seconds. If the light goes out, you have released the front panel lock.
On some models, you needed to press and hold the Air Dry button. However, you may need to look for writing in a small font that will indicate the correct button/key combination to release the front panel lock.
If pressing the appropriate button for an extended time doesn't work, then your keypad may need to be replaced. The signal isn't being received by the control of the dishwasher. (Alternatively, the wiring between the keypad and control unit or control unit, itself, may have an issue.)
1. To prevent operation of the washing machine when no wash cycle is running
To set this feature, switch the machine on using the POWER button at the top-left of the control-panel. Next, press and hold both the SPIN and RINSE buttons for about 3 seconds - until the child lock light indicator on the control panel illuminates. All functions of the washing machine will now be disabled apart from POWER ON/OFF until such time as the child lock is deactivated.
To deactivate the child lock, press and hold the SPIN and RINSE buttons again until the child lock light indicator on the control panel goes out.
2. To prevent any tiny fingers from tampering with the machine while a program is running.
After pressing the START/PAUSE button to start the wash cycle, press and hold the SPIN and RINSE buttons until the child lock light indicator illuminates. All buttons on the control panel will now be disabled until the child lock has been disabled. When the wash cycle has finished, you will need to switch the child lock off again to reactivate the buttons. Once you have finished using the washer, reactivate the child lock again before switching the power off as above.
The feature can also be used when using the delayed start feature, but needs to be set after pressing the START/PAUSE button.
Hope this helps. Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.
Hi what you can do is to buy a universal remote control for this TV to remove the child lock. You can get that online or on any electronic shops in your area. Once done here is the instructions on how to remove the child lock using remote.
Look at the "Power" indicator light on the front of the television to check if it is blinking. When blinking, the child lock is enabled. You can also check by pressing the "Power" button on the television.
Point the remote control at the television and press one of the buttons on the number keypad. The "Power" indicator light will stop blinking, indicating the child lock is turned off.
Lock the television again by pressing and holding the "Power" button on the remote control until the indicator light starts blinking. It takes approximately three seconds before the light turns on. Thanks

It means that your control panel went out and you need to replace it. Here is how if you want to try your self.
The control panel is not available as a complete part.
To replace the control or touchpad, pull the range away from the wall and disconnect the power to it.
Remove the cover on the rear of the control panel.
Remove the screws that hold the clock or control to the front wall of the control panel. These screws also hold the touchpad to the front of the control panel.
The touchpad connects to the control with a ribbon connector and there is a locking tab holding the ribbon connector to the control. Lift the locking tab and unplug the ribbon.
Usually, once child lock is on, the set will not respond to the front panel buttons and you need the power button on the remote control to turn the TV on. Then go into the menu and turn child lock off.
