Hi Alec,

Thank you # ***** your dishwasher?
Also how old is your dishwasher?
Is the lock engaged with the door open as I suspect?

I am not in the same house as the dishwasher so don't have the number

Quite a few years

Yes it seems locked with the door open and is showing 2hr 36 mins before the wash will start

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

I am moving back to the house where the dishwasher is.

Can you send any answer as an email that I can pick up when I am using the internet on my phone?

Hi Thanks Alec, that doesn't sound like the child lock is the issue here. But you need to turn power off to the dishwasher for 15 minutes then back on. Please let me know if this helps or not, if it fixes the problem please rate kindly if not please don't rate yet but simply reply to me for further instructions;-)

I have turned the machine on and off at the switch on the front quite a few times.

Do you want me to turn off the supply to the machine?

Hi Alec yes, thats what I need you to do, switch it off at its main supply, not the switch on the unit.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Will do and now definitely going back to the house. Could you perhaps phone me in 15 minutes? My number is ***** 878989

I already have an Idea of whats wrong, but thats why I need you try that power interruption for me and let me know what happens.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

I turned off the supply but nothing has changed. The door will not shut. The clock is still stuck on 2 hours +

Thank you Alec, unfortunately the unit isn't in child safety lock mode.
Its got a faulty main control board. Its easy to replace requiring only a few basic hand tools, and no soldering;-) I will help you make this repair in less than an hour.
