Hello, and thank you for using this service. I'll be helping you with your problem today.

You should just need to press and hold the RINSE button on the far right of your control button to unlock the control panel. If that doesn't work, unplug the dishwasher or turn the circuit breaker off for 60 seconds tos ee if the electronics will reset. If nothing works, you'll need to order and replace the control board because it's just shorted for one reason or another I'm afraid to say.

you fixed it! Why would the lock light come on in the first place?

That's hard to say for certain. Possibly someone leaned on it? Or possibly a small voltage spike? There is usually no way to know.
