    What is the model number of your dishwasher? Please confirm it is/is not an LG LDS 5811 (or if not, what is it?)

The LG LDS 5811 and all models that start with 'LDF" do not have a door latch. They do have a child lock _but_ that feature does not lock the door closed or open, it just locks the controls so the DW can not be turned on or settings changed.
So, please look at the right side edge of the opened door and post the model # back here.
Thanks!

How do i unlock my samsung dishwasher


It depends on the model. For example, IF you have a DMT400 series, although the light ABOVE the Low-Rinse-Aid light is lit, you press and hold the SANITIZE light for 3 to 5 seconds. Other models are different, but if you look closely at your dishwasher control console, you should see some small print that will say something like "Child lock/unlock, (Hold 3 sec)".

Door is locked, cannot close the door or power on


Hello Stephanie Shcherban - Try resetting the unit by unplugging it for flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes. Restart unit and first confirm that the "child lock" option is not selected. However, if it proves to be ineffective and from what you have a described it sounds like the unit has a defective door lock switch, which will need replacing. Contact a professional to move forward accurately.

Deactivate childlock on fully integrated neff dishwasher


If door won't close and you don't have a child-lock, just push the door closed a lot harder than you normally would - NEFF manual says to do that, and it worked for me! I think it just forces it to engage and 'releases' the catch, as after that it closed with just normal pressure applied.

Ho do I switch the child lock off?


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

To unlock the child lock in your LG Dishwasher, with the door open press the SPRAY & RINSE buttons simultaneously for 15 seconds. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Control lock is on and don't know how to turn it off


Without knowing the manufacturer and model number, it is impossible to be specific. But most dishwashers that have a control lock light means that you have a child safety feature on the dishwasher. If you look closely, you may see some symbol that ties two buttons together and maybe if you press both at the same time, the child lock out may turn off.

Post info about the make and model here to get more specific.

Would not wash


It sounds like the child lock is on. Is the light on when the door is closed and nothing is pressed? If so hold the lock button until the light turns off. If you do not have a lock button, try the heated dry button or consult the manual to find out which button toggles the child lock.
Good luck.
