Unplug the machine for at least ten mins or so, replug with cycle at start, try restarting cycle, if it still get locked on dry, then probably the control panel must be replaced.

Sir,

Open the door if its not locked and there is a square section with a piece of metal behind it, push it in and turn the lever. There is a small protruding finger that is on the dishwasher that moves into that hole to show door is closed. If your door is locked in position and you cant open it the only thing you can do is pry the two retaining screws that hold the dishwasher to your countertop and pull out the dishwasher far enough to unscrew latch and repair. sometimes it gets bent and all you have to do is bend it back either up or down.

Thanks
Good Luck

Push the heated wash and the heated dry buttons one after the other for about 5 times, then all lights will lit up, the washer will go through different settings, just wait and it will start normally.

good luck

Press Sani-Rinse then Heated dry then Sani Rinse then Heated dry. This should reset your machine and you should be able to restart your cycle.

Try unplugging and replugging to reset (or, if the plug is too difficult to reach, reset the breaker)

Hi stmike1georg

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

You want to know how to unlock the controls on your dishwasher?

No problem. You'll notice the lock light is next to the "heated dry" button. Just press and hold till the lock light goes out, about 6 seconds. The same process will turn the lock light back on. Perhaps the last time someone touched it they held it too long.

Feel free contact me again!

Blinking Quick Rinse


brent, After doing a little research on this model, I see that Sears put out a service flash concerning this problem. Dishwasher stops in mid cycle and one or more of the lights are flashing. SF22-715. The correction is to replace the existing board with an updated board that controls the line voltage better. Part number 8530928. You could be covered under this flash. The tech will have to eliminate the possibility of a stuck or shorted keypad which will cause this same effect. You can try to get this back in operation by pressing in this order: high temp wash-air dry-high temp wash-air dry. This will put it into a self test mode. Just let it run through if it works. If you don't have those keys try power scour-air dry-power scour-air dry. Catriver...post back.
