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).

Most buttons on the control panel do not work. The only 3 working buttons are high temp wash (htw), sani rinse, and heated dry (hd). We tried resetting the console by hitting the sequence of htw, hd,...


Shut power off to dishwasher for about 5 minutes and see if control panel will reset. This sometimes helps. If problem is still there you may have a bad control board.

Control panel buttons no longer work.


Hello ...

I tried to look up your model numbers here (usa)...
with no success... (Kenmore 13742 / 13744 / 13749)

I rarely (ever) suggest owners go direct to Sears...
but this would seem to be.. appropriate...

(I my opinion they are rude & pushy to sell parts
(good news ... here... their guaranteed fit/fix)).

Before doing so...


Check your water, drain & power at the appliance.

With the breaker turned of...

open the appliance cord JUNCTION BOX and assure the
wiring devices (usually "wire nuts") are still tight and secure.

Finding nothing... you are at the UNHAPPY JUNCTURE
where you need to use SEARS PARTS DIRECT...

The control panel is flashing a L. What does this mean?


Hi.

The model indicated: MDB5651A does not have display and the error codes are shown like flashing lights. If that is your model and problem please just tell me what lights are flashing.

In Maytag with display instead, the L on display means that the machine is control locked. That is not an error message, but a code telling that the machine has been locked by the user (probably by mistake since you are the user).

I quote from Maytag technical documentation:

? If a cycle or option pad is pressed after the controls have been locked, the indicator light next to lock graphic will flash five times. On selected models with a countdown display, the display will flash the symbol "L" simultaneously with lock indicator.

? This option does not lock the door, only the dishwasher controls.

To set :
1. Press the Heated Dry pad for three seconds.
2. An indicator light next to the lock graphic will illuminate when the controls are locked.

To Cancel Control Lock:
1. Press the Heated Dry pad for three seconds.
2. The indicator light will go off as instructed.

Try pressing the the Heated Dry pad for three seconds. If that doesn't work disconnect power. Connect back and try again unlock (power off does not remove the lock). If that still does not work there may be a faulty part. In that case turn appliance off and give me the full model number.

Start holding down the Heated Dry pad for three seconds. In normal conditions that is enough to get rid of the L and of control lock.

If you need parts or schematics see this tip explaining how to find parts and diagrams for most appliances: Where do I find parts and diagrams for my appliance?

Regards.

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!

We have a dishwasher that flashes clean light on front panel and will not allow a new cleaning cycle. Mod GU3200XTPS3 TYPE 577-0


Make sure the control panel is not locked. If you press any pad while your dishwasher is locked, the light flashes 3 times and the selection is ignored. If the lock symbol is lit, press and hold HEATED DRY for 4 seconds. The light turns off.

If the control panel is not locked and the problem still occurs press the Cancel/Drain button to drain all water and clear all indicators. (It might take 2 minutes to complete this action.)

Maytag Quiet Series 300 Will not work at all, only the lock feature is lit.


I had the same problem. The lock button light was on, nothing happened when pressing start, cancel, etc. I also tried holding the heated dry button (lock) for 3 seconds and no luck UNTIL holding down for three seconds while also pressing the cancel button. I was then able to start cycle as normal.

Kenmore dishwasher Lock-On light flashing, will not start


Push the heated/dry button on the dishwasher for 4 seconds and that will unlock the dishwasher. This is just a safety feature that allows you to lock the dishwasher to stop kids from pushing buttons.
If that doesn’t’ work they will send out a tech to fix it.
