Thank you for the Control Lock reset fix! Worked great and saved me possibly a few hundred dollars on repairs! :)

I have a Whirlpool Duet and I had to hold the End of Cycle button for about 3 seconds. Thanks!

If lock light wont go off,wont reset,You Can Wash dishes! Just drive a finishing nail into lock light til it goes out. I swear you will have full wash powers, just won't lock.But, I Never knew it had a lock till it stuck. I did this,as instructed by appliance serviceman of 40yrs. It works perfectly fine and no $ outta my wallet. This is a 20 yr old washer, not saying do it on newer model Kenmore D/W.

I tried everything else.. I literally smashed a finishing nail into the light and my piece of crap Kenmore dishwasher came to life instantly.

Totally incredible. Thanks Rusty.. Awesome advice!!

I'm tearing down my house in 4-6 months and I did not want to install a new dishwasher, so this certainly got the job done!! :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-)

Worked for me. I did it with the power off and removed the finishing nail. I cannot understand how this could work. Lets see how long it lasts!!!!!!!!!!!

Deborah, try this first:"

Press and hold for 3 seconds the "Control Lock/Unlock" button on the control panel to lock the control panel. Listen for a double beep and observe the "Control Lock" status light is lit when the control lock is in effect. Press and hold for 3 seconds the "Control Lock/Unlock" button on the control panel to unlock the control panel. The "Control Lock" status light is goes out when the control panel is unlocked.

In addition to Oldturkeys answer, try unplugging it for five minutes to allow it to reset.

I have the HE4. I tried all of this, and they didn't work. However, I pressed and held the "Auto Dry Level" just to test other things, and it did the trick for me. Appreciate the input because I wouldn't have tried it otherwise though.
