It indicates a water temp problem. If water temp doesn't rise at a certain rate, by the heater, it goes into this error. Probably a problem with heater or wires to it.

Did you try to turn the power off at the breaker box?
This resets the whole system usually!
Let me know how it goes? Write me back!
Other wise you need a hands on tech.

I found this post elsewhere. It seems to have worked for me:
Our KitchenAid KUDP series dishwasher went into a mode where it would
not start and would only respond to the cancel/drain button. The clean
light would flash 7 times in a row, stop, and then repeat. I read that
the 7 flashes indicates an error code and that the dishwasher has
detected a problem in the heater element circuit. I tried to reset the
error mode by turning off power for 15 minutes, however, that did not
We called for a repair. The service person found that the dishwasher was completely fine except that it had gone into an error mode. The technician reset the error mode and charge us $115.00.
The reset sequence used was reported to be the following:
1) Crack the door open.
2) Within 3 seconds press the following sequence - Hi Temp Scrub, Energy Saver Dry, Hi Temp Scrub, Energy Saver Dry
3) Close and latch the door
4) Press the cancel button (the circle with the triangle in it)
We were told the dishwasher expects to see the dish water temperature rise in a certain way. If the water does not heat in this way, the dishwasher becomes confused and thinks the heater element has failed. In deed, this happened just following and extended power failure and our hot water tank was cool. I am curious if this code will work for anybody else with the same problem and save a service call and 115 bucks. Overall, this seems to be a serious logic flaw in the design.

if your unable to unlock the "childlock" by holding down the button, then it woud seem that theres a problem with the user interface itself
