Control Lock

 

Possible Solutions

Is the Control Lock option activated?

Control Lock is used to avoid unintended use of the dishwasher between cycles, or cycle and option changes during a cycle. The red lock indicator shows that the control lock is activated, and the control panel cannot be used while this is activated. 

To turn off Control Lock, press and hold the button(s) designated for your model for 3 seconds. This will vary depending on your model number. Once held for 3 seconds, the lock indicator light will turn off. See your Use & Care Guide for your specific model.

NOTE: You may need to disable Sleep Mode by pressing either Start/Resume or Cancel, or by opening and closing the door before you are able to turn Control Lock off. 

If you would like to download or view product literature for your appliance, please visit our Manuals and Literature page.
