whirlpool dishwasher


Model GU2500XTPS6

"Lock" light is on. Tried power cut off to allow reset. Did not work. When I push any cycle key, the lock light flashes 3 times and then stays on.

Check the owners manual in the trouble shooting section.
How old is the unit?

Thanks for your reply. I checked the owner's manual first and there is nothing about the the "lock" light. The unit is 5 years old.

Any other ideas are appreciated.

I found the command to cancel the lock feature. Thanks for your help. You just saved me $109.00 for a service call.
