SOURCE: "3 second" light flashing

The 3 second flashing light is a lock that locks out all other functions. To disable, depress the 3 second light for 3 seconds and all the functions will be released. This feature is to use to keep little kids from starting the appliance.

Control locked red light is on so nothing I can do to power it up and use. I turned the breaker off and on but nothing happened. What can I do to fix this?

If you are holding in Auto Dry Level for 3-4 seconds this should unlock the controls. If not, this usually indicates a stuck button on the control panel. Feel the push-in action of the Auto Dry Level button to see if it feels stuck or hanging up in any way. If the button feels right then this indicates that the user interface (touchpad) is at fault.

I have a double draw dishwasher . the child lock key comes up and the dishwasher does not start

The lock button activates/deactivates the Keylock or the Childlock functions. This button has either a key or a padlock icon. I believe that on this model it is a padlock


The Keylock feature disables all the buttons on the control panel.

To activate, press and hold the button until you hear one beep (3 seconds). The symbol

appears in the electronic display when the Keylock feature is activated.


The Childlock feature locks the drawer and disables all the buttons on the control panel.

To activate, press and hold the button until you hear two beeps (5 seconds). The symbol

appears in the electronic display when the Childlock feature is activated.

To cancel the Childlock feature, press and hold the button until you hear one beep and the
symbol disappears from the electronic display.

This information can also be found in your product's Use and Care manual. If yours has been misplaced you can download or print one from Fisher and Paykel's website.

If this doesn't work... And I've seen these units do some odd things. Try unplugging it for about an hour (if plug is not under sink you can turn of the breaker that powers the unit). Then plug it back in and see if that works. These dishwasher like many modern day appliances have solid state microprocessors in them which sometimes need reset just like a computer.

Hope this helps.

The easy solution is to try pressing the Energy Save Dry button & hold it in for 3-5 seconds. This should turn the child lock on & off.

If this doesn't work, then it's likely that one of the pads on the control panel is stuck, and it (the control panel) will have to be replaced.

If you don't have the manual, you can download one here (PDF format). Good luck!

Error code E 68

A button is stuck and it needs to be unstuck. Enter key test mode during the diagnostic test mode to determine which keys is stuck.

Press and hold Select and Cancel buttons simultaneously for 6 seconds to reset the control.

The buzzer sounds then immediately turn the cycle selector knob counterclockwise to the second position from the bottom.

Press and hold the Options and Cancel buttons simultaneously for 2 seconds then the control enters diagnostic mode. The buzzer sounds 3 times and the LEDs flash.

Turn the cycle selector knob clockwise the second position from the top. The drive motor runs and the heat source turns off.

The buttons can now be tested. Press each button and the corresponding LEDs turn on. You should be able to find which button is stuck. The Options and Select buttons turn on the same set of LEDs and also the Cancel and Start/Pause buttons.

Access the control and unstuck the button. Disconnect power and remove the top panel by removing the screws attaching it to the rear of the dryer. Slid the panel rearward and lift it off the cabinet. The screws attaching the console to the cabinet are exposed. Remove the screws and disconnect the wire harnesses then remove the console. The control can now be removed and the buttons are exposed. Unstuck or clean the stuck button contacts. It is recommended to clean all other button contacts to prevent the recurrence of the same problem in the near future.

you may have a problem with the motor. this is the only device that would turn off the whole machine for 3-5 seconds.
there is this contact switch that would be held close by the motor once the motor is running normally until you reach the end of cycle.

but if there is problem with the motor, it has this over current device that would turn it off.
once off, the contact that it was holding to keep the unit running would open up and stop the unit from running.

tnx 4 using fixya,
