Good afternoon. My name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you with your dishwasher today. I think the first thing you'll want to try is to just see if the control lock can be removed. Press and hold the TOP RACK ONLY button for 5 seconds. If that doesn't resolve the issue, flip the circuit breaker off to the dishwasher for 5 minutes or unplug the dishwasher for 5 minutes to see if the electronics will reset. Try again and if the washer still acts up, replace the interface control panel because it has just failed. We are on the honor system here. Please remember to rate my service by selecting a star at the top of the screen before you leave today. If you need anything else, just let me know. You can continue asking follow-up questions at no additional charge after rating my service if you still need assistance.
