    we unplugged the dishwasher overinght and when we plugged it back in the lock light was still on.

    the lock light is right above the no heat button. But while the lock light is on nothing else is working. Inside of the door it says to unlock the controls hold the no heat button for 4 seconds. We have tried over and over and nothing works.

    Good evening friends, I need your help. My Kenmore dishwasher's buttons are not working. The -lock- button keeps flashing and the manual says to hold the lock botton for few seconds and it will un-lock itself. I've done that several times but it will not work. The light goes off but goes back on again. None of the buttons seem to work either. I've called Sears but they require $75 just come in and look and that price does not include anything.....just the estimate. Can someone help me please before I dish out $500 for a new one? THANK YOU IN ADVANCE

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.

Hold down the "HEATED DRY" button for 4 seconds to unlock.
Try to press these botton in sequence,Heated Wash, Heated Dry, Heated Wash, Heated Dry.release your hand, the unit will go into diagnostic mode. that is all leds will ON for a few seconds,and start normal operations.
If that does not work, you might need to check the electronic control board if the ribbon is seated properly.
Finally solution, is to change the electronic control board.
