The CHILD LOCK light came on and I cant get it off. Pressing CANCEL does nothing. How do I fix it?


Usually you need to press and hold a button or a pair of buttons to toggle the Child Lock function. Without the model number of your dishwasher, I can't be sure if this will work on your machine. It did work on the old Kitchenaid I had. Press and hold the Energy Saver/Dry button for 4+ seconds. If the light goes out, you have released the front panel lock.

On some models, you needed to press and hold the Air Dry button. However, you may need to look for writing in a small font that will indicate the correct button/key combination to release the front panel lock.

If pressing the appropriate button for an extended time doesn't work, then your keypad may need to be replaced. The signal isn't being received by the control of the dishwasher. (Alternatively, the wiring between the keypad and control unit or control unit, itself, may have an issue.)

I hope this helps.

Child lock is on and I cant get it off


To turn on Lock, press and hold CONTROL LOCK button for 3 seconds.
The Control Lock light will stay on for a short time, indicating that it is activated, and all buttons are disabled.
If you press any button while your dishwasher is locked, the light flashes 3 times and an audible tone will sound.
The dishwasher door can still be opened/closed while the controls are locked.

To turn off Lock, press and hold for 3 seconds. The light turns off.

that would be model # 66516012403 correct??
you may have inadvertently set the lock on function..
check this out from your manual...

Lock On
Use the Lock On to prevent unintended use of the dishwasher
between cycles. You can also use the lock feature to prevent
unintended cycle or option changes during a cycle.
When LOCK ON is lit, all buttons are disabled.
NOTE: The dishwasher door can be opened while the controls
are locked. However, the lock must be turned off and the Start/
Resume button pressed to resume the cycle.
To turn on the Lock
Press and hold HEATED DRY for 4 seconds. LOCK ON glows.
If you press any pad while your dishwasher is locked, the light
flashes 3 times.
NOTE: If the Heated Dry option is selected, the light will
temporarily turn off until Lock On glows.
To turn off the Lock
Press and hold HEATED DRY for 4 seconds. The light turns off.

hope this helps,
best of luck,
ttfn

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

Lock light is on


The lock only locks the buttons (childproof), hold it 3 seconds and it will go out.

Dishwasher is locked somehow and i cant get it back to unlock!


one of your buttons acts as a button or key lock.
on the elite it is the airdry button. there is probably a lock icon by the correct one. hold this button for several seconds and the lock lite will go out and buttons will work.
