Question about KitchenAid 24 in. KUDG25SH Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

Setting cycles and turning dishwasher on

All of a sudden the child lock was on on my dishwasher. I read the manual and got it turned off. Now, I can press one of the cycle buttons; i.e. "soak and scrub" but cannot press a second one; i.e. "super scrub" -- and the start button will not depress or start the dishwasher. I can press "cancel" and it will cycle through the draining fine -- but, then I cannot set the cycle or start the dishwasher. I do not know whether the child lock being on has anything to do with this problem.

My dishwasher won't let me select cycle


Not sure about the model of your Dishwasher but check if you have a "CHILD LOCK" or "LOCK" button, press and hold until it unlocks.

Another issue could be the door, perhaps the door is not correctly closed and the DW won't let you turn it on until the door latch is correctly closed.

How do you get the child lock off on a Haier dishwasher?


Just consult the manual. :>)

English
Changing the Wash Program / Cycle:
If at any time during the washing process you would like to change the
selected wash program /cycle;
1. Press and hold the START / RESET button for approximately 3 seconds.
(The START / RESET indicator light will be ON indicating that the unit is
in PAUSE mode.)
2. Select the desired wash program / cycle by pressing the program
button.
3. Press the START / RESET button again, the dishwasher will resume
operation using the newly selected wash program / cycle.
NOTE: If you change the wash program / cycle after the detergent
has been dispensed or the dishwasher has already drained the
water, you will need to refill the detergent dispenser for the newly
selected program / cycle accordingly.
At the End of the Wash Cycle Once the dishwasher has completed the selected wash cycle / program,
there will be a buzzer sound for 8 seconds indicating the end of the cycle.
1. Shut off the water supply.
2. Turn the dishwasher OFF by pressing the ON/OFF button.
3. Open the door slightly with caution to allow any residual steam to
escape.
4. Wait a few minutes (approximately 15 minutes) before unloading the
dishwasher as the dishes and cutlery will be hot. This also aids in the
drying process.
5. The interior of the dishwasher will be wet, this is normal and will dry
naturally.
WARNING: It is dangerous to open the door when dishwasher in
Checking the Water Temperature
For the most effective cleaning and to prevent damage to the dishes being
cleaned, the water supplied to the dishwasher should be at a temperature
of at least 120?F (49?C) and no more than 150?F (66?C).

Child Lock Function
The child lock function will prevent the unit from functioning and the door from being able to open if it is in the fully closed position.
To engage the function, press the "3-in-1" button and the "Delay" button at the same time. The "lock" icon will illuminate in the display when the child lock function is activated.

To disengage, press the "3-in-1" button and the "Delay" button at the same time. The "lock" icon will go off in the display when the child lock function is deactivated.

My fisher n paykel draw dishwasher wont start it has three buttons a (on/off )(play/pause)(lock symbol) wat do i press to make it all start,


First press the ON/ OFF button to see if the display lights up. Once you select the program from the panel then press the PLay/ Pause button to start the cycle. Pressing the key button will prevent accidental pressing of the ON/ OFF or the Play./ pause button when the dishwasher is running. It is a child lock button. To turn it off (if you have selected it) press Keylock button again.

The child lock is stuck on my kitchenaid superba dishwasher


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.
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.
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.

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.
