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.

Hi

To reset the dishwasher control you have to press and hold the HEATED DRY button for 15 seconds, if its still not resolved then it means that the control board has gone bad and should be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

KITCHENAID DISHWASHER SUPERBA MODEL KUDS01DJSS0 CHILDLOCK DOES NOT OPEN .REMAINS IN LOCKED POSITION EVEN AFTER POWER RESET. CAN'T USE THE DISHWASHER.


Hi,
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!

Door will not open on my KitchenAid Superba dishwasher


Hi Karissa (I LOVE your name!)

I took the opportunity of your post to upload a technical service manual for you. The "child lock" feature is only for the control functions (the buttons) and has nothing to do with the door actually locking. Here is the link to the tech manual. I hope you find it useful.
