Cannot turn of lock function on new dishwasher, so can't

Customer Question

cannot turn of lock function on new dishwasher, so can't wash dishes
JA: Just to clarify, what's the make and model of your dishwasher? And have you run a diagnostic test cycle?
Customer: well darn, can't go any farther, all I brought was the serial #--I have the huge set up sheet but just realized it does not have make and model on it. I'll try tomorrow-I did not that there is nothing writing on the washer itself --except whirlpool.
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: I cant afford a repair man, and we just past the 30 days for the store to take it back,,,
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: so yes

If your control lock function is engaged all you need to do is press and hold one of the buttons for 5 seconds to unlock the control panel. Now without the model number I can't tell you which button is your control lock button but just press and hold each one for 5 seconds one by one and one of them should unlock the control panel.
