Control Lock - Dishwasher

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 Owner's Manual for your specific model.
