The lock on light wont go off. We can not start the dishwasher. We have tried holding the noheat option for several seconds and have turned off the circuit box for several minutes and neither one made the lock on light stay off.

That is the correct button to push to turn the control lock off. You can try to reset the control by removing power for two minutes. If the dishwasher is doing the same thing, most likely the touch pad has a shorted button or a bad connection on the unit control board. To check touch pad connection you will have to open the console. You will want to turn the power off to the dishwasher first.

Open the console.Once the console is open, remove and install the ribbon cable a few times. Now put the door back together and restore the power. If the dishwasher works, it was just a bad connection on the ribbon cable. If the console is doing the same thing, it could be a console or a unit control faulty. I recommend the console first.

Control Lock On

Use the Lock to prevent your dishwasher from accidentally being turned on. Use the Lock, also, to prevent accidental cycle or option changes during a cycle.

LOCK ON

When LOCK ON is lit, all buttons are disabled.

NOTES:

The dishwasher door can be opened while the controls are locked.

You can turn on the Lock while the dishwasher is running.

To turn on the Lock:

Press and hold NO HEAT DRY for 4 seconds. LOCK ON glows.

If you press any pad while your dishwasher is locked, the light flashes 3 times.

To turn off the Lock

Press and hold NO HEAT DRY for 4 seconds. The light turns off.

If the lock light flashes constantly this indicates that a key (or keys) is most likely shorted or stuck. If this is the case the console or touch pad must be replaced. The console is only available in black (part number 3384340).

The control lock light is on and the machine wont start


You should be able to toggle off the Control Panel Lock by pressing and holding the Energy Saver Dry pad for 4+ seconds. If the light doesn't go off, try shifting your finger position on the touch pad. I have a few appliances where the angle pressure has to be just right for a "press and hold" to be recognized.

If several attempts fail, the keypad, wiring or the main board aren't communicating properly. Please check the model number of the dishwasher; there are several KUDS01FLSS models. Go to http://www.kitchenaid.com/customer-service/manuals/ and enter the model to get the parts list. Some parts are available from Appliance Parts Pro: http://www.appliancepartspros.com/search.aspx?model=kuds01flss . The user interface is here: http://www.appliancepartspros.com/whirlpool-user-interface-8270168-ap3085303.html .

I hope this helps.

Why is the lock light on


Look on the front for the buttons that say lock press them at the same time and hold for several seconds the light should go off. If that won't work try to turn off the power for several minutes then restore power.

Blinking auto lock Whirlpool


What does it say in fine print right under control lock? "Press & Hold"? Page 16 of the user manual shows it as "air dry" with two lights, twelve and three o'clock positions. It says hold it for four seconds and the light turns off.

Kenmore dishwasher Lock On light flashing


holding the button for four seconds will not do it, you have to hold it until the light stops blinking and
will go back to normal, normall takes more than four seconds to unlock the unit, this is something
the sears repair techs know becouse the are trained on all this things but, they will not share this things, becouse thats how they make money

There should be a button on the machine with a padlock symbol. Hold it down for 4 seconds to unlock it. If you want to lock it again, hold it down for 4 seconds to turn it on.
