Try switching the power to the machine off, or un-plug it.

If this doesn't work, lean gently against the machine door (the latch may be too tight and the spring can't pull it open).

How do you get the child lock off on a Haier dishwasher?


Just consult the manual. :>)

English
Changing the Wash Program / Cycle:
If at any time during the washing process you would like to change the
selected wash program /cycle;
1. Press and hold the START / RESET button for approximately 3 seconds.
(The START / RESET indicator light will be ON indicating that the unit is
in PAUSE mode.)
2. Select the desired wash program / cycle by pressing the program
button.
3. Press the START / RESET button again, the dishwasher will resume
operation using the newly selected wash program / cycle.
NOTE: If you change the wash program / cycle after the detergent
has been dispensed or the dishwasher has already drained the
water, you will need to refill the detergent dispenser for the newly
selected program / cycle accordingly.
At the End of the Wash Cycle Once the dishwasher has completed the selected wash cycle / program,
there will be a buzzer sound for 8 seconds indicating the end of the cycle.
1. Shut off the water supply.
2. Turn the dishwasher OFF by pressing the ON/OFF button.
3. Open the door slightly with caution to allow any residual steam to
escape.
4. Wait a few minutes (approximately 15 minutes) before unloading the
dishwasher as the dishes and cutlery will be hot. This also aids in the
drying process.
5. The interior of the dishwasher will be wet, this is normal and will dry
naturally.
WARNING: It is dangerous to open the door when dishwasher in
Checking the Water Temperature
For the most effective cleaning and to prevent damage to the dishes being
cleaned, the water supplied to the dishwasher should be at a temperature
of at least 120?F (49?C) and no more than 150?F (66?C).

Child Lock Function
The child lock function will prevent the unit from functioning and the door from being able to open if it is in the fully closed position.
To engage the function, press the "3-in-1" button and the "Delay" button at the same time. The "lock" icon will illuminate in the display when the child lock function is activated.

To disengage, press the "3-in-1" button and the "Delay" button at the same time. The "lock" icon will go off in the display when the child lock function is deactivated.

Dishwasher not completely drying


The dishwasher does not dry the dishes, it is the residual heat remaining from the washing water that dries the dishes.
Once the washing cycle is over, opening the door and pulling the top drawer out slightly to keep the door ajar will create a small opening which allows the steam to escape and the dishes then dry a lot quicker.

Top raCK OF DIRTY DISHES ADB1500AWW


This Dishwasher although working on one side should not be an issue as long as the dishes are getting clean. If your unit has the Pots and Pans setting or heavy wash cycle with this option pushed the water pressure should be then adequate and then be seen on both sides of the arm. If you have not tried this do so. This unit has several manufacture's problems to look out for..The control relay on the board fails leaving the dishwasher useless. The door locking safety feature has a bad switch these reports are public information in many reviews with the same problem over and over. So these things you should look for possibly in the future Maybe it never happens to you. Remember to rate my solution and give testimonial this is how i earn achievements here on FixYa Thanks in advance.

Hi, for most dishwashers the detergent cup is behind a little door in the door of the dishwasher.. snap open the door and place the detergent in the cup while the door is open and down, then close the little door and then close the dishwasher door...

Dishes won't come clean


If you have dishes (typically cutting boards or really tall dishes) that block the dispenser door from opening, the water cannot wash out all the detergent during the wash cycle. Check to see that after loading the dishes, your detergent door has clearance.
