Unlock the controls to start dishwasher


If the model number you listed this question under is correct, this model dishwasher has two locking features (both controlled by the same button).

There is a Control Lock which locks all the control buttons, so the dishwasher cannot be started. It is enabled by pressing and holding the lock button for about 3 seconds. To disable, press and hold the lock button until the light goes out. A single beep will be heard when the feature is turned on.

There is also a Keylock feature which locks the drawer shut and disables all the controls so the dishwasher cannot be opened or started. It is enabled by pressing and holding the lock button for about 5 seconds. To disable, press and hold the lock button until the lock light goes out. Two beeps will be heard when the feature is turned on.

Both these functions are safety features that enable the consumer to lock the dishwasher controls to prevent children from inadvertently starting the appliance.

These instructions are on page 12 of your owner's manual. If you no longer have a manual, you can obtain a FREE copy at managemylife.com. Just go to the site and type in your number under the "Manuals" link. These manuals are available in .pdf (Adobe) format that you can download or print for FREE.

If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

First try unplugging the washer from powerpoint for 30secs..this may disable lock.if not, some washers will still work on lock if you hold the buttons you need. for 5seconds. eg try starting washer as normal but hold the button for 5secs....(Ps you may be needing to press 2 buttons at the same time to take lock off but i dont know witch 2 buttons).

Can't start the dishwasher, lock button is lit up. Tried to hold down many buttons for 3-5 seconds, but lock button continues to stay lit up. Tried resetting the power to machine, but nothing changed. ...


Hello Albert, On the Jenn-Air dishwasher you have, you have to hold down the "Heated Dry" button for 3-5 seconds to unlock the control panel.

This should unlock the controls so you can again use the dishwasher normally.

Since you''re likely going to have this dishwasher for some time, I've included a link where you can download a free owner's manual for it.

I would print out a copy for your future use and reference. I also have a file on my computer that I title "Home Appliances and Equipment" which is where I download and save an electronic copy so I always have a backup copy saved, since manuals aren't always readily available on the web, as the appliances get older.

http://www.jennair.com/assets/product/6_920374_A.PDF

The info on locking and unlocking the dishwasher can be found on page 13 of the manual.

I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

I have a maytag quiet series 100 dishwasher and it will not run a lock light comes on and i have replace a broken handle assembly but light stays on


the control panel is locked. dont know your model number to tell you what buttons you hold to unlock it, but some models have a lock button you hold down for 3-5 seconds. other models just have a lock light, and have a line indicating 2 buttons that you hold down for 3-5 seconds. if you cant find which buttons to hold down, refer to your owners manual. once the control panel is unlocked, it will run again. shane

Control lock is on and don't know how to turn it off


Without knowing the manufacturer and model number, it is impossible to be specific. But most dishwashers that have a control lock light means that you have a child safety feature on the dishwasher. If you look closely, you may see some symbol that ties two buttons together and maybe if you press both at the same time, the child lock out may turn off.

Post info about the make and model here to get more specific.
