Using the Control Lock on Your KitchenAid Dishwasher
The control lock on a dishwasher is intended to "lock" the control from unintended use. It can be used while the dishwasher is operating or not. This is perfect for households with children who like to touch buttons so the dishwasher cannot be turned on accidentally or turned off when running.
How to set the Control Lock:
If the Control Lock feature has been enabled, the Control Lock light will flash three times, indicating that it is activated. Press the button for that dedicated key to activate and deactivate the Control Lock. To turn off the Control Lock, press the Options key that says "Control Lock Hold 3 Sec" under it for 3 seconds.
If the dishwasher has a dedicated Control Lock button in the Options selections, press and hold CONTROL LOCK for 3 seconds (press the words "Control Lock).
NOTE: You may need to disable Sleep Mode by pressing either Start/Resume or Cancel or by opening and closing the door before you can turn the Control Lock off.
