I'm sorry it is a 3 second Delay lock and what is a dry key pad?
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 8 months ago

the key pad on the right side of the door handle is a heated dry key so just press and hold it for 3 seconds or until the lock light goes out!

The 3 second next to the light is telling you to hold that key for 3 seconds to unlock the control
