Usually you need to press and hold a button or a pair of buttons to toggle the Child Lock function. Without the model number of your dishwasher, I can't be sure if this will work on your machine. It did work on the old Kitchenaid I had. Press and hold the Energy Saver/Dry button for 4+ seconds. If the light goes out, you have released the front panel lock.
On some models, you needed to press and hold the Air Dry button. However, you may need to look for writing in a small font that will indicate the correct button/key combination to release the front panel lock.
If pressing the appropriate button for an extended time doesn't work, then your keypad may need to be replaced. The signal isn't being received by the control of the dishwasher. (Alternatively, the wiring between the keypad and control unit or control unit, itself, may have an issue.)
I understand by reading your post which indicates it is a kitchen aid dishwasher mod kuds01flss6 you appear to have a concern with no power to the control, correct ?
The one thing I'd suggest is the thermal fuse, typically the symptom you've described is associated with a bad thermal fuse. (part #8193762) Here's a helpful link below to a video from "repairclinic.com" to assist in changing(or simply checking it as shown in the second link) the fuse kit...it generalizes on most Whirlpool built dishwasher's such as yours, but if slightly different it is essentially the same. http://www.youtube.com/user/RepairClinic#p/search/0/jdlVbTXm8SY http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Thermal-Fuse/675813/679723 I'll watch for your reply and try and help going forward. Hopefully this will provide you with the solution you seek, but please keep me posted if not. ...If so, please take a moment to rate the assistance provided for you here today. Good luck and thank you for choosing FixYa. Regards,
Make sure the controls are not locked. Some units have the ability to lock the controls so that kids cannot turn on the dishwaher. You can also try unpugging the power to the unit from under the sink for about 10 minutes and then plug it back in. This may reset the control board if it has a fault and stopped from error code.
Great job walking through the possible causes! Hey, it is time to check the heating element itself. First visually, looking for brakes and then feeling for "bubbles" on the round element rod. Also see if it moves excessivly when you wiggle.
If no problem obvious, after you disconnect the dishwasher from power, use a multimeter to check for resistance (Ohms) If none, look for broken (heavy guage) wires and replace what's broken - probably the element itself.
If the element checks out good, suspect the thermistor then the controller/PCB.
Good Luck! Please report back what you find, OK?
I had the same issue on my Viewsonic N3752w The online guide, said I had to press VOL+ and Menu at the same time, but forgot to say a) it's from the TV buttons NOT the remote!!! b) you need to keep pressing these 2 until it stop saying "Power unlocking" but Unlocked.
My record lock is turn off, but every time I press the record stop to stop record it takes me to the password screen where I must enter a password before I can stop the recording....This piece of xxxxx is stink. I hate my Samsung SHR-1040...I cant even talk to Samsung about it.....When I call, they transfer me to India and they dont even know what a DVR is......I told them DVR 10 times, but they keep repeating to me " VCR"
I tried the following sequence, as recommended on a similar blog and it worked!
Quickly press :
Hi Temp Scrub
Energy Saver Dri or Heat Dri
Hi Temp Scrub

All lights should come on
