Wash Cycle Options
Delay Start (model dependent):
This option allows you to delay the start time of your dishwasher up
to 19 hours.
The Sanitize feature is available only in the Heavy, Auto, Normal and Half Load cycles. Press the
"Sanitize Option" button to activate the Sanitation features during these cycles. The technical sanitation
measures may also improve the drying results. The sanitize LED or The "Water Pipe" symbol will light when sanitation
requirements are met.
Note: The dishwasher automatically defaults to Auto Wash when turned off and back on. If you used the sanitize option
in your last cycle, the dishwasher will default to Auto Wash with the Sanitize option selected when you turn it on.
To achieve proper drying, always use a liquid rinse aid, even if your detergent contains a rinse aid or
Note: The dishwasher indicates low rinse aid by turning on the Refill Rinse Aid indicator LED (for units without
a display) or The "Spray Looking" symbol (for units with a display).
If this light is on, you need to refill the rinse aid dispenser
I got the idea that the "squiggly arrow" has something to do with the sanitize feature also. If you post your model number "on the inside right hand side of your dishwasher door" I'll go get your manual and post the link here. Hope this helps so far! :)

The lock button activates/deactivates the Keylock or the Childlock functions. This button has either a key or a padlock icon. I believe that on this model it is a padlock
The Keylock feature disables all the buttons on the control panel.
To activate, press and hold the button until you hear one beep (3 seconds). The symbol
appears in the electronic display when the Keylock feature is activated.
The Childlock feature locks the drawer and disables all the buttons on the control panel.
To activate, press and hold the button until you hear two beeps (5 seconds). The symbol
appears in the electronic display when the Childlock feature is activated.
To cancel the Childlock feature, press and hold the button until you hear one beep and the
symbol disappears from the electronic display.
This information can also be found in your product's Use and Care manual. If yours has been misplaced you can download or print one from Fisher and Paykel's website. http://www.fisherpaykel.com/customercare/userguide/index.cfm
If this doesn't work... And I've seen these units do some odd things. Try unplugging it for about an hour (if plug is not under sink you can turn of the breaker that powers the unit). Then plug it back in and see if that works. These dishwasher like many modern day appliances have solid state microprocessors in them which sometimes need reset just like a computer.
Hope this helps.
