I’m sorry I am having a problem locating my info. It is a kitchenAid though

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Yes, it has had the lock light come on before, I called coustomer service they told me two buttons to hold down to get the light to go offf. I did what they told me to do and the lock light went off and the dishwasher started working.
