Hi, the only way to release it is to take it apart. The front skin needs to be removed. Once the skin is off you will be able to remove the screws that hold the control panel in place. Once the panel is off you will be able to remove the two screws that hold the lock in place. You can flip the lock back to the home position and put the front panel back on. Unplug the dishwasher before you begin service.
