Try hitting and holding the child lock button for 3-5 seconds. If this does not work try hitting and holding the heated dry/ air dry. Mike

There is no high temp scrub -so I tried super scrub button instead . Followed your instructions and the pump didn't come on but hit cancel but no results-just flashing lights on cancel and child lock. So tried anti bac button and energy saver dry button and still no results???
Ok sorry meant the scrub button. Ok by following that combination we just tried to enter the service program. Since the service program did not come up the buttons flashing mean there is a shorted touch pad button. In order to fix this problem you will need to replace the control panel. Click HERE to order the replacement part #1. In order to replace the panel you will need to open the door and take the screws out around the inner liner. This will release the control panel. From there it will be apparent how to replace the panel. Mike
