On kitchen aid dishwasher, control lock is blinking and preventing the use of any other execute buttons. Can't start a wash .


Which model KitchenAid dishwasher do you have? On some models, the Control Lock can be toggled on/off by holding the Energy Saver Dry touch pad for at least 4 seconds or until the Control Lock light turns on or off.

On another model, the touch pad to press and hold is the 4 Hour Delay button. (On that model, you press and hold for 3+ seconds.) There is often a very tiny label below or on the touchpad indicating which key controls the Control Lock.

If you haven't held the button for long enough, pressing the other touch pads will lead to the Control Lock light blinking 3 times if the Control Lock is active.

If the press and hold method still doesn't work after several attempts, then you may have a problem with the control panel. The dishwasher may need repair.

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with the model number so that I can check if a different touch pad key is the correct one for the Control Lock.

(the Control Lock feature keeps the dishwasher settings from being changed accidently or the unit started when it isn't needed. This can stop a child from resetting the dishwasher or the unit being started while you clean it.)

Hi there,

Well you can please follow the below steps -
1. Locate the "Energy Saver/Dry" button on the dishwasher. The location of this button will be different depending upon the specific model number of the dishwasher, but should be easy to spot. If you have trouble finding it, you can check the diagram in the manual of your dishwasher for the exact location for your specific model.
2. Press and hold down this "Energy Saver/Dry" button for at least four seconds. Make sure that you do not release the button until at least 4 seconds have passed, otherwise the lock will not become disabled.
3. Check to make sure that the child lock indicator light has turned off. If this light is no longer on, this means you were successful at turning off the child lock. If the light is still on, repeat the process, but try to press and hold the "Energy Saver/Dry" button for a few seconds longer. If it still doesn't work, there may be a more complicated issue with your dishwasher. Consult your manual, or call to the manufacturer or repair man to determine if there is another problem with your dishwasher.

Dishwasher won't run, clean light flashing


Hi


If clean light is blinking then it may be an issue with heater circuit, door switch or wash pump, please reset the power to the dishwasher. After, 5 minutes check if you are still getting the same error. If yes, then it is a water heating fault. To resolve this error try pressing this reset sequence-- Heat Dry - Normal - Heat Dry - Normal or High Temp - Air Dry - High Temp - Air Dry or Hi Temp Scrub, energy saver dry, Hi Temp Scrub, energy saver dry. Now let the unit run for 2-3 minutes and then you press the Cancel/Drain button and allow it to completely drain and reset. If this doesn't work then it's an issue with the wash pump not pumping the water past the heater efficiently or due to lack of water to heat. Please make sure that heater is not open circuited and is heating the water efficiently. You'll have to check the heater using a multimeter; the meter should read between 3000 to 3300 ohms (Use multimeter on Rx1 ohm setting). If heater is fine then make sure water pressure is optimum and fill valve is working fine. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

Is there a reset button on the dishwasher? if so, where?


Not sure what type of reset you are after. Is the dishwasher not responding to any panel switches.

Is the keypad locked, i.e., is the control lock light on? Then press Energy Saver Dry button for 4-5 secs.

Are some lights flashing and dishwasher will not start? Have you tried to turn mains power off and back on?

If you think the controller needs a reset, you could try this sequence of keys within 7-8 secs.
hi temp scrub/ energy saver dry/hi tempscrub/ energy saver dry/ hi temp scrub/ energy saver dry.

If the reset sequence has worked correctly, then all lights should light up. Press Cancel to exit from reset mode. I am assuming you have a users manual. If not then download from here.

Please rate the solution if it helps your problem otherwise post a comment

How to unlock the child lock


Most of the dishwasher in this series have an energy saver dry button. Hold this button in for four seconds and it should unlock the child safety lock. Does not work, try again for 30 seconds. Does not work. We have problem. If your model does not have an energy safer button, then type in the model number and you should be able to find the manual online and open the same to find out how to unlock the child safety lock. If all fails then you need an Electronic control board assembly, about $86 for your model, plus shipping from repair clinic.com. If you are at all handy, this is easy repair. Make sure you turn off the breaker or remove the fuse before you attempt any repairs.

Can you provide a model number?

Child Lock on or Flashing Energy Saver Dry


I suspect that the cycle "button" on the control panel is intermittent.  Try using a different cycle - If you always use "short wash", try the "normal" cycle.
This worked for me.  It will be too expensive to repair, so I am dishwasher shopping.
