    more info....It appears everything else on the keypad works, including the light on the Heated Dry part, I just can't turn it off or lock the control pad with it.

    sorry, one more thing. I need to use the Heated Dry part of the key pad so that I can purge my dishwasher of the bad dish soap that's in it.

SOURCE: The heated dry button will no longer work on my GE Mono. dishwash

most often they are one unit or "circuit board" and you will need to replace every thing, if you can turn off power and take off front door panel you should be able to "see" switch componet or look in your owners manual ...hee hee

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.

The control lock light goes on as soon as I press the cycle to start the dishwasher. The dishwasher does not start, presumably because the control lock stays on. I do not know how to disable the control...


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

To unlock the controls press and hold the HEATED DRY button for 20seconds. If the problme returns then only option is touch pad replacement. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

My controls are locked


If you accidentally pressed "Heated Dry" for 3 seconds and it locked your controls, just press the same button for 3 seconds and it will unlock.
