My dishwasher will not do anything. There is a little pad lock icon under the heat dry button that is lit up. I have no idea what it is or how to get it off.

Dishwasher will not start.. heat dry with lock icon is lit up and cant cancel


Hold the heat dry/ lock button down for atleast 10 seconds. That should turn the option off. If that does not work then turn the breaker off for atleast 10 minutes then turn the breaker back on,. this will reset the dishwasher placing everything back to the original settings.

There is a lock button and it is lit, how do i unlock it?


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

To unlock the controls press and hold the HEATED DRY/AIR DRY/RINSE ONLY button for 20seconds. If the problme returns then only option is touch pad replacement. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

The lock symbol light is on and the dishwasher won't start


To prevent children from accidently changing the

dishwasher cycle or starting the dishwasher, lock

the dishwasher controls by pressing and releasing

the DELAY START pad (some models) or the AIR

DRY pad (some models) for 3 seconds. An

indicator light on the lock graphic pad will illuminate

when the controls are locked and no new

selections can be made until the lock is released.

To unlock the controls, press the DELAY START

pad or AIR DRY pad until the indicator light goes
out

The light on the pad lock icon is on and i can't do anything with the dishwasher


The lock feature is there to keep little fingers from turning on the dishwasher. Usually if you push and hold the lock button for 3 seconds the light will go out and the feature will deactivate.

My Maytag Quiet Series 300 light is blinking 5 times by the lock button. It won't do anything else other than blink 5 times if any other button is hit. Help!!


When Control Lock is lit, all buttons are disabled. If you press
any pad while your dishwasher is locked, the light flashes
5 times. The dishwasher door can be opened while the
controls are locked.

To turn off Lock, press and hold Heated Dry for at least
3 seconds.
