Air Dry Button just flashes

Hello,

Our dishwasher will not start at all now the Air Dry Button just flashes. I tried to hold it in for 5 seconds like the manual says but it just switches off then the lock button lights up for a second or two then it goes back to the blinking Air Dry button. If any other buttons are hit the lock button lights up then it goes off and back to the blinking Air Dry button. I also tried turning off the circuit breaker for 5 minutes like whirlpool suggested and it didn't help. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Jeff

That is the fault code indicating the button is stuck. the touchpad must be replaced. the lock light indicated two or more buttons activated at same time

Hello, i have a Kenmore Quietguard standard dishwasher. it is in the "lock" position under dry options and the dishwasher will not start. can you tell me how i might be able to re-start this?


On our Kenmore Quietguard the lock light is at the Air Dry button. Holding the Air Dry button for about 8 seconds turns the lock light off if it is on and on if it is off.

Can't start the dishwasher, lock button is lit up. Tried to hold down many buttons for 3-5 seconds, but lock button continues to stay lit up. Tried resetting the power to machine, but nothing changed. ...


Hello Albert, On the Jenn-Air dishwasher you have, you have to hold down the "Heated Dry" button for 3-5 seconds to unlock the control panel.

This should unlock the controls so you can again use the dishwasher normally.

Since you''re likely going to have this dishwasher for some time, I've included a link where you can download a free owner's manual for it.

I would print out a copy for your future use and reference. I also have a file on my computer that I title "Home Appliances and Equipment" which is where I download and save an electronic copy so I always have a backup copy saved, since manuals aren't always readily available on the web, as the appliances get older.

http://www.jennair.com/assets/product/6_920374_A.PDF

The info on locking and unlocking the dishwasher can be found on page 13 of the manual.

I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

All the lights are flashing on Maytag Quiet Series 300


Try pressing heated wash, heated dry, then heated wash, heated dry. It should reset it. Also try pressing and holding the cancel button for 5 seconds to see if that works if the other doesnt.

Control Lock means that the entire dishwasher is locked, for child safety purposes.  It's normally cleared by holding the "No Heat Dry" button in for 4 seconds or more.  It is locked again by the same procedure -- holding the "No HEat Dry" button for 4 seconds (or more).
