Where is the Control Lock on a Kitchenaid dishwasher?

Answered by James Kissner

On a Kitchenaid dishwasher, the location of the control lock button may vary depending on the specific model. However, there are a few common places where you can find it. One possibility is that the control lock button is located above the door, near the control panel. This is often the case with newer Kitchenaid dishwasher models.

To locate the control lock button, start by examining the control panel area above the dishwasher door. Look for a button that has a lock symbol or the word “Control Lock” printed on it. It may be a standalone button or combined with other functions.

Another possible location for the control lock button is on top of the dishwasher door. Some Kitchenaid dishwashers have a control panel on the top edge of the door, which includes the control lock button. This design allows for a sleek and clean look on the front of the dishwasher.

If you’re having trouble finding the control lock button, consult the user manual specific to your dishwasher model. The manual usually provides a diagram or description of the control panel and its buttons, including the location of the control lock function.

Additionally, some Kitchenaid dishwashers may have specific buttons or options that activate the control lock feature. For example, certain models may have buttons like “Proscrub Upper” or “Bottle Wash” that can also serve as the control lock button. These buttons might have a secondary function when pressed and held for a few seconds, activating the control lock feature.

The control lock button on a Kitchenaid dishwasher can be located above the door near the control panel or on top of the dishwasher door itself. Look for a button with a lock symbol or the words “Control Lock” printed on it. If you’re unsure, refer to the user manual or explore any additional buttons that may have a dual function.
