All you should need to do is press and hold the control lock button to the left of the 4 hour delay button on the control panel for 5 seconds and that should remove the control lock. If that doesn't work, press and hold the CANCEL/Drain button for 5 seconds and try again. If none of it works, unplug the dishwasher or flip the circuit breaker off to the dishwasher for 6 seconds and try to press and hold those buttons again. As a last resort if none of that works, your touch control panel has just failed and would need to be replaced because it won't reset and it won't remove the control lock.

I hope I have earned a 5 star rating. We are on the honor system here.
