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.

Dishwasher wont turn on when I press start and... the "3 second" lock light is constantly on??


Child Lock Controls
To prevent children from accidently changing the
dishwasher cycle or starting the dishwasher, lock the
dishwasher controls by pressing and releasing the RINSE
ONLY pad (some models) or the NO HEAT DRY pad (some
models) for 3 seconds while the door is latched. An
indicator light on the lock graphic pad will illuminate when
the controls are locked and no new selections can be made
until the lock is released. To unlock the controls, press the
same pad, RINSE ONLY or NO HEAT DRY, again for 2
seoncds until the indicator light goes out.


Hope this helps?

Bosh wishwasherhow do you unlock the child safety lock?


Hello there and welcome to fixya The child lock function of your Bosch dishwasher prevents accidental program changes and stops children playing with the controls while the appliance is running. You might want to turn the lock off if it has been accidentally turned on. The controls of the dishwasher are disabled, preventing you from starting a new wash, while the child lock is running. The lock is simple to turn on and off, as necessary, in just a few seconds

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.

Will not stop washing


This advise is for Kenmore Elite and Whirlpool Duet front loader washers and dryers with a Control Lock problem.

This may or may not be an indication of a serious problem. In the majority of the cases, this is a simple operator error. Nearly all these model appliances have some sort of Control Lock feature on the front panel now. This is a designed safety feature that is used to prevent small children from manipulating the controls. The controls can be easily locked or unlocked by pressing and holding the following button on the front panel:

Whirlpool Duet Washer - Press and hold the END OF CYCLE SIGNAL button for 3 seconds.

Whirlpool Duet Dryer - Press and hold the END OF CYCLE SIGNAL button for 3 seconds.

Kenmore Elite Washer - Press and hold the DRAIN/SPIN button for 3 seconds.

Kenmore Elite Dryer - Press and hold the AUTO DRY LEVEL button for 3 seconds.

These instructions may not be all inclusive for all Kenmore and Whirlpool models, but they are the most common. Chances are, if you have a Control Lock feature, the instructions will be printed on the front panel adjacent to the button that is required to lock or unlock the controls.

NOTE: These instructions may also work for newer model Maytag, Hotpoint, Admiral and Fridgidaire model front loaders as well. Refer to your owner's manual or front panel for instructions pertaining to your sepcific model.

If the Control Lock feature will not lock or unlock the appliance, unplugging the unit for AT LEAST 30 minutes is recommended in order to reset the main control board. In many cases this is all that is required to correct momentary glitches.
