Whilst on can you press drain button as if their is still standing water inside then the door wont open give Ginko a try first then check if you have drain button if not try pushing the door in further in case the lock has got jammed pushing the door in further will take the pressure off the lock and should be able to open

Have you tried pulling the door hard in case its just stuck as this can be the problem the door should open when its been unplugged from mains after a set time you should hear the lock click then give door another try ok.
Follow Ginko advice then let us know the outcome ok

    If you still cannot open it run a complete cycle and see if the door unlocks at the end of it.
    If at this point the door does not open, then the door latch may be broken or defective.
    In this case you need to force the door latch to open with a screwdriver, without damaging the door. A replacement door latch is easy to fit in and costs $5/$10, here is an example.
    Contact retailer providing your model number to get the right part.

Blinking "Normal" light on a Maytag model


Hi


Open the door. Within 3 seconds press the following sequence --Try pressing normal wash, heated dry, normal wash, heated dry, normal wash, heated dry three times within 6 seconds and then press cancel to reset the dishwasher. If that doesn't help then try pressing Saini Rinse, Heated Dry, Saini Rinse, Heated Dry, Saini Rinse, Heated Dry or Saini Rinse, Air Dry, Saini Rinse, Air Dry, Saini Rinse, Air Dry 3 times in 6 seconds and then the Cancel Button. Close the door and press Cancel.
Blinking lights would stop and should be able to use your dishwasher normally. If the light is still blinking try and reset the power to the dishwasher and try again. If still the light is blinking then check for the connections on the keypad, it may be due to moisture or shorted connections on keypad.



Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

GE Triton XL


Try placing a packet in the bottom of the DW and then start a wash cycle ( use the energy efficient cycle that does not use the heater to dry the dishes..).. if it is not disolved at the end of the cycle then your water temp may not be hot enough..Hope that helps..

Maytag Quiet Series 300 Will not work at all, only the lock feature is lit.


I had the same problem. The lock button light was on, nothing happened when pressing start, cancel, etc. I also tried holding the heated dry button (lock) for 3 seconds and no luck UNTIL holding down for three seconds while also pressing the cancel button. I was then able to start cycle as normal.
