Means the control panel is locked. You need to hold down a button usually with a little lock picture for 5 - 10 seconds to unlock it.

Whirlpool Gold quiet washplus dishwasher Red Light staying on--control locked Cannot get it to run, no buttons will do anything


Which model dishwasher do you have? The Control Lock is a feature that keeps a child from starting the dishwasher when it shouldn't run. The Cancel button will work but not the Start button.

On the DU920QWD, to toggle the Control Lock off, press and hold Air Dry for 5 or more seconds. (Holding it again will turn on the lock.) Most dishwashers will have a the Control Lock key labeled with text in a small font for how to enable the Lock. The direct link to the DU920QWDB4 manual is https://www.whirlpool.com/digitalassets/MLPDF/Use%20and%20Care%20Guide%20-%203376817.pdf .

For other Whirlpool dishwashers, the Control Lock sequence will be listed in the manual. You can get a PDF of many Whirlpool appliance manuals from http://www.whirlpool.com/owners-center/owners-center-homepage.content.html . Enter the model number (from the rim inside the unit) and click on the right arrow.

I hope this helps.

My daughter has a Whirlpool series 930 dishwasher and it is locked? How do I unlock it?


This just happened to me recently on my Whirlpool. My dishwasher indicates that the "Air Dry" button will lock it out if held in for 5 seconds. To unlock it, hold this button in for another 5 seconds or until the lock out light goes out. Hope this helps.

I have a Whirlpool Dishwasher and it is locked and I don't know how to unlock it


I have a Whirlpool dishwasher & locked mine by pushing the "Air Dry" button for about 5 seconds. To unlock it, I pushed it in again another 5 seconds and the unlock light went out & it worked fine. Whatever button you locked it with originally (if you know), should unlock it when held in again.
