Default Child Lock Will not Release
Model Number: KUDR25SHBL1   Brand: Kitchen Aid   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


When one of the wash cycles is selected the child lock light comes on. According to the manual to engage or disengage the child lock feature , the Energy Saver Dry button is to be pushed in for three seconds. I have tried that but it does not work. I also flipped the breaker for about 1 hour hoping this would reset the dishwasher but it does not help. The only way to disengage the light is to open the door. But when a cycle is selected the child lock feature is engaged and you are locked out. Any suggestions?

Hi Lou

The problem with your dishwasher is one or more pads on the control panel got stuck. The control panel (console) has to be replaced. You did not post the color of your dishwasher,so I give you part numbers for all three of them:

- The part number for the black console AP2921033

- The part number for the white console AP2921034

- The part number for the biscuit console AP2921035

- Here are break down diagrams for the Kitchen Aid dishwasher Model KUDR25SHBL1

Good luck.
Gene.

Does anyone know if replacing this control panel is a relatively "easy" project? My father-in-law is an engineer, but I'm hoping not to need him for this one! Any input would be appreciated. Thank you for the helpful information on the problem and the parts to resolve it, as we have the same model in our house. Kind regards, Jason Havens, Destin, FL

It's the exact same model as above (i.e., KUDR25SHBL1 that's very likely 10 years old), Gene. We're having similar problems. For example, the child lock has come on several times on its own. I discovered via Google how to shut off, but then the dishwasher wouldn't function for a while and then worked perfectly again after "resting"! KitchenAid/Whirlpool said that it's probably just an old control panel because otherwise it seems to run well. If this is an easy replacement or something that only requires minor wiring or electronic repair, we should be able to handle. Otherwise, I'm going to hire someone or go through Whirlpool, or we're going to buy another dishwasher if that isn't cost-effective. Thank you in advance for any additional input.

Kind regards,

Jason
