When I push the start button on my dishwasher, the "hold 3 sec" light blinks but nothing happens and no other buttons work.


It sounds like the control panel is locked. See if one of the buttons says lock and hold it down for at lest 3 seconds. If the control is locked, that should unlock it. Its a child safety feature.

How do I turn off the childproof lock on my KitchenAid Superbua dishwasher?


This depends on the exact model of the KitchenAid Superba dishwasher. There is a button on the control panel that will indicate the Control Panel Lock. Usually this is labeled Control Lock (Hold 3 sec) or 4 Hour Delay (Control Lck 3 Sec). The phrase in parentheses is below the key in a smaller font.

Press and hold the button to toggle the lock on and off. Sometimes you have to hold it for more than the listed 3 seconds.

I hope this helps.

My "3 Sec" button is


The control touchpads can be locked to prevent unwanted use. If this feature is activated between cycles, the dishwasher cannot be operated until the controls are unlocked.

The indicator tells you that the controls have been locked to prevent kids from messing with them.

Press and hold the "3 Sec" (control lock) button continuously for 3-5 seconds. That should clear the lock.Now you can use the controls normally.

To re-enable the control lock, press and hold the control lock button continuously for 3-5 seconds, until it indicates locked.
